Treasure Boxes

First gather some empty toilet paper rolls, paint, and brushes

Fold the ends in to form a party favor box.
We did this before we painted in order to make an initial crease to
ease the bending after we painted.
Then let the kids paint a coat of paint on the outside.
Then let it dry before applying additional designs.

The girls had fun being creative with their designs as we discussed what little goodies they would be hiding inside these little "treasure" boxes.
NOTE: You can also spray them with a simple glossy spray and wrap up
with curly ribbon for extra pizazz

I've also got another couple of Garbage Goodies posting soon....

Love this idea, we are going to try this soon. I know my 4 year old will have a lot of fun with this :)
