I ran into a conundrum tonight…I made some pretty awesome snacks for my 6-year-old’s class, but couldn’t think of a way to have them make the one-hour-plus bus ride to town safely. And I really wasn’t keen on making a 30-mile round-trip jaunt to town just to deliver cupcakes. (But I would have.)
I made a shout-out to my pals on Facebook, to see what ideas I could come up with…and with their help, and some fine tuning from my hubby, I ended up with an idea that was just short of brilliant!
First, I found tall shoe boxes that were big enough to fit a cereal box in. Athletic shoe boxes are frequently on the bigger side, and would probably work great.
I had 20 cupcakes, so I needed to use two shoe boxes. In the first box, I used the ice cream cone boxes, and in the second box, I simply used an empty cereal box. Here’s how it worked out:
The best part about it? These heavy-duty shoe boxes have great lids, making it easier for my son to travel with his treats! YAY!
And thank you, to everyone who shot me an idea or two…it takes a village.
