My daughter was away at church camp last week. It is a tradition to send mail to the campers. However, we sneak it in to the hands of the counselors. The camp is only 2 hours away, yet mail takes for ever. Accordingly, I labeled each envelope/package for each day that my daughter should receive it. Piece by piece her mail would build something related to camping. Follow along and see if how many days into the week before you know what the final product will be.
The first day my daughter received two pieces of card board about the size of an adult’s hand. In hind sight, it would have been fun to split this piece in to two days!
Day 2 resulted in a thin, brown block. I used the A2 Mailer by My Scrap Chick to create it.
Day 3 required a litrtle more thought. The week prior I made these darling shark boxes from SVG Cutting Files. Close enough for my needs as I was under a time crunch. I altered the boxes to be solid squares (removing the face and mouth opening).
At the end of the week, if she did not know what she was holding, a poem would reveal it all. I found a fun poem on the internet. It is written by Greg Pincus. Mr. Pincus has given me permission to include his poem on my blog.
Did YOU guess the sweet treat? Here is the assembled S’more.
My daughter did figure it out on day two. She doesn’t really like to eat them, so it was a good thing this s’more was made from paper! I love getting creative with the files and patterns I have on hand!
