I've gotten wonderful ideas from teachers on ways to use this craft.
- Memorial Day gift box:"My children are putting paper mache hearts inside and giving them to veterans at a local hospital."
- Writing inspiration and wall display:
"Our class used the boxes as inspiration for our writing pieces. We got surprisingly thoughtful responses and I'll add them to our wall display."
- Hang craft boxes from the ceiling:
"We used different lengths of thread to hang our boxes from the ceiling like stars, and they're quite a sight!"
- Sun Catcher:
"We used Fun Tak to attach the box to a window and catch the light through Memorial Day images."
- Flower Pot:
"Leave the top half open and place a baggie inside with flowers, a plant or sprouting beans."
- Neon Cardstock:
"I printed on neon card stock, assorted colors, and they came out stunning!"
I'd love to hear your ideas! Please let me know what you think of, from the simplest to the most elaborate way to touch hearts using this craft.
A Memorial Day Craft Box is a thoughtful way to pay tribute to our heroes. I'm wishing everyone a safe and loving Memorial Day.
