How stinkin' cute are these?
And I say that as someone who did not at all come up with this idea.
I found the original idea here, and then we kind of did our own thing because I couldn't get the printable download to print for me. It was just as well, because there was a half day of school on Taanis Esther and we needed an activity.
My girlies made these for their morahs for mishloach manot.
We started with Hershey bars - and it took everything I had to buy the right number of chocolate bars, and not purchase an extra (several) for me.
We used white cardstock and cut out circles for the heads.
While the girls colored the faces, I printed out some clipart that may or may not have been free - I used superhero masks and a superman logo, all in black and white so the girls could choose what colored markers they wanted to use for each teacher. ALSO, why is colored ink SO EXPENSIVE? It's like Office Depot and Staples have teamed up to take ALL THE MONEY. So we print in black and white and use markers. It's all good.
The girls also cut out blank squares and wrote a message on each one to each teacher.
They glued it all together with a glue stick and used regular white glue to add some yarn for hair. A red construction paper cape was glued onto the back of each chocolate bar.
And then I used my magical cellophane bags (did you see yesterday's post where we discovered a world of premade cellophane bags?) to package the chocolate bars up, folding the cape around the chocolate so it would all fit inside nicely. Some ribbon, a scissor to curl the ribbon and we were done.
Happy Purim dear morahs! We hope you enjoyed these as much as we enjoyed making them for you!
