We had our family Bash recently and I had all the cousins write short notes to our family missionaries. I tend to get better participation if I keep things quick and simple. Too complicated or time consuming and their eyes tend to glaze over. I found these cute St. Patrick's Day lunch box notes from Heather at The Chickabug Blog (click here for the free printable*) that worked perfectly. Some of them even have a question or wording on the top for those who can't think up something to write.
I wanted to put all the notes (there was quite a pile of them) into a small vellum envelope but I didn't have any on hand so I made my own out of waxed paper. Not the perfect solution but I didn't have to go to the store. Free is always better...just ask my husband. After cutting out the envelopes, I closed them with a bit of Washi tape. Cute. Free. Easy. Winner, winner, chicken dinner!!
