To prep, I printed the free summer fun box labels and activity cubes (HERE) on cardstock to give them extra durability. Then, I cut everything apart and set them aside while my kids and I ran to the dollar store to pick up some goodies.
The first time around, we decided to send a summer fun box to a friend who’d recently moved away. The boys (ages 3.5 and 5.5) loved picking out treats their long distance buddy would love:
- a puzzle
- sidewalk chalk
- watercolor paints
- jump rope
- plastic pail
- bottle of bubbles
- glitter glue
- glow sticks
- coloring book
- silly string
- pipe cleaners
When we came home, my boys were eager to help me stick the labels on each surprise. First, we flipped over the cute “Hope you dig the break” tag and rolled our Scotch® Double Sided Adhesive Roller along the top and bottom. Then, we pressed the label firmly to the sandbox pail, sticking it securely.
We adhered the “I’m stuck on you” label to the pack of stickers…
…and tagged the jump rope, crayons and bubbles too.
Summer Fun Box Cubes
When we were ready, we carefully folded along the inner lines of our summer fun box activity cubes (HERE) to create clean edges. We applied the Scotch® Double Sided Adhesive Roller along each white tab to make it sticky and pressed the tabs against the sides to secure them.
The boys couldn’t resist rolling the cubes a few times to make sure the activities were as fun as I’d promised.
Summer Fun Box
Next, we grabbed a shipping box large enough to fit everything and secured the bottom with some packaging tape. We carefully placed everything inside and stuck our colorful tag to the top flap to officially make it a summer fun box.
After securing the top of the box with packaging tape, we addressed and adhered the shipping labels including in the free set (HERE) and hopped into the car to head to the post office. Easy peasy and fun for us, too.
