Don’t throw away your Altoid or other breath mint containers, save them for children to create something to hold their mini treasures. Great for anytime of the year but especially fun for a St. Patrick’s Day treasure hunt.
Breath mint holders – any size or shape
Items to decorate the lid – paper, stickers, small animals, glitter, markers
Scissors & glue
1. Trace the lid on a piece of paper and cut-out.
2. Glue on top of the lid to cover the writing.
3. Use your imagination to decorate the lid.
When your grandchildren are finished decorating fill their treasure holder with candy, money or small trinkets. Hide them for the children to find. You can even give them clues to where they can be found.
