Trick Or Treat Boxes

What do you do when your 3 year old decides she doesn't want to go to dance class today?  Sometimes I let her stay home, but 3 weeks in a row?  And she really loves it! It's just that lazy day afternoon setting in.

So today we decided to make treats to share with all the little girls at dance class.  It is the Halloween party, after all!
Using the Silhouette, we simply cut black cardstock into boxes using Adorable box 6
I folded them and she taped them.

At this age, it is all about what they can do alone.  "All by myself!"
So she then glued the webs on with a glue stick.  We cut those out with spiderweb 1042.

Finally, she painted over the web with glitter paint and we took turns writing her name on the bottom with a white colored pencil.
These little boxes are the perfect size for just a couple pieces of candy and a spider ring.

After talking these up all morning, she wouldn't put on her costume.  OK, I can handle that.  And then came the "I'm not going.  No way."
In my head I was thinking, "Get in the dang car!  I already paid for this class!"  But my mouth was saying something about sharing our fun presents with all our friends.  And....it worked!  Yay!  We made it to dance class with a smile on both of our faces.
