The kids will be using these cans to give edible gifts to their friends on Purim. We may leave the cans open and wrap the treats in colored celophane, or give them as is, we still have a few weeks to decide! (And quite a bit more crafting to do!)
Most kids trade little gifts with friends on Purim moring, and usually the treat is placed on a disposable plate, wrapped in cellophane and tied with a ribbon. Simple and cute, though I'm so happy that after all the years of watching me slave over my Purim creations, my kids are joining in the fun, and it's important to them too to give something just a little special!
- recycled cans or any kind, with smooth sides (namely no ridges in metal)
- contact paper, we used both standard contact paper and some Israeli metallic contact paper ("tepet") which is inexpensive, though not so easy to cut with craft punches as it's a little on the thin side
- craft punches: we used an oval, a scalloped circle, a tiny heart and a tiny bird
Also, if you're shopping on the internet and looking for a unique gift for friends, then take a look at, my photo gifts and create you own special gift.... how easy is that?!
