Teaching generosity for the Holidays- Kids DIY Teacher/Friend Gift {#StreamTeam}

Thank you to Netflix for sponsoring this post! 
So my kids start to get really greedy around the holidays.  They are always talking about what they want for Christmas.  When the toy catalogs come in the mail (That I DID NOT order!) they grab them and circle everything in them.   So to combat all the "I want, I want, I want" I made them make some gifts to give their friends.  I told them that we are going to give these gifts and not expect anything back.  It was tough because they really wanted the Chocolate bars - but I really wanted to focus on the giving. 

They are fast and easy to put together - Here is how you can make your own: 
1. Cut our card stock into 2 rectangles one 3.625"X8 and 3.625"X5" (The 3.625" is when you cut a whole sheet into 3rd's)
2. Put the smaller rectangle on top of the larger rectangle with the bottoms lining up.  I sewed around the edge of mine to give that cute factor but you could totally glue it.
3. Test to make sure your chocolate fits. :) 
4. Decorate with washi-tape or stickers or what ever you have! 

Here are the kids working hard on them. 

Here are the ones the kids made:

You could also do a none-candy option too! 

We have been loving the new VeggieTales In the House series that just started this week! 
My kids are HUGE VeggieTales fans! 
You can only watch this series on Netflix
