|This was designed to hold the biscuits that the children had decorated, but could be used to hold any little token representing the time the children spend with God.
I would recommend printing the PDF on thin card rather than paper. If you wish you can use a long ribbon to tie the box, leaving room to have a handle for the children to slip round their wrists. The PDF contains 2 pages, one with the graphic printed on and another one which is blank for your own design.
| You will need –
1 printout per child. ribbon or string, a hole punch, scissors, colouring pens or pencils
|Start by getting the children to colour their boxes. Don’t use anything to decorate that may bleed or make the box wet. There is a space for the child to add their name as well. Once the outside is decorated cut along the thin outside lines.|
|Fold along the dark black lines – these all go in the same way, so the ink becomes the ridge of the mountain! Take you hole punch and make four holes where the 4 black stars are.|
|Thread a ribbon through the two holes on the base of the box. That’s the half without any writing on the outside.|
|Tie the ribbon in a simple knot. This forms a space for you to put in whatever is going to be filling your box.|
|Tread the same ribbon through the remaining two holes on the top of the box and secure with a knot or bow. It’s really that easy.|
