My son Oliver turned 3 this year and I had no idea turning 3 is such a big thing for kids that age! He was telling every single person how he was going to be a big boy now. I just had to incorporate the number 3 on his birthday, so had a little stamp made for him. We used the stamp for his invitations, thank you cards, cake toppers and the party favors (which was my favorite project). I repackaged candy, stamped each one individually and made a goody box for every kid. Oliver loved his new age displayed everywhere.
Materials needed: tissue paper, candy, a stamp (you can find number stamps in most craft stores, you don’t need to have a custom one made), a stamp pad, boxes to fill with candy, some string and a little notecard.
Step One: Wrap your candy in tissue paper (2 sheets works best)
Step Two: Stamp each repackaged candy (test the stamp out a few times on some paper)
Step Three: Stuff some tissue paper on the bottom of your box
Step Four: Fill the boxes with candy
Step Five: Attach your note to a string and wrap it around the box
I picked stamping because I was convinced we could do his party projects together, but that didn’t really happen. He just wanted to play with the stamp in his notebook and wasn’t interested to help with the rest. Maybe he’s a little too young for it? Would your child like to help with this?
