This post is compensated by Trident through my participation via the Mom it Forward Blogger Network. The Spider Web Pillow Box craft, as well as my opinions, are my own.
The past few years, for both Halloween and Valentine’s Day, I’ve written posts that feature non-candy treat ideas. My daughter receives a crazy amount of candy for these holidays, and I do all that I can to keep her off of a permanent sugar high. Now that she is older, she is at an age where she can responsibly enjoy chewing gum. When I was her age, I remember that my mom always had a pack of Trident chewing gum in her purse. Trident was actually the first national sugar-free gum in the US. My mom would let me have a piece as a treat instead of candy. My daughter now enjoys Trident gum, and we are adding the sugar free treat to these Hand Drawn Spider Web Pillow treat boxes this year for Halloween. There are lots of gum flavors from which to chose, but she is partial to the Island Berry Lime. These treat boxes are easy to draw for even those with no artistic tendencies. Trust me, I fall into that category myself!
Did you know that Trident has donated more than $2, 500, 000 over the past 11 years to Smiles Across America? This has helped over 2 million children receive preventative dental care! Trident is continuing this tradition by donating 5¢ to Smiles Across America during the week of September 20th, for each pack of Trident purchased, up to $250K. Void in AL, MA and SC. To ensure healthy oral care, brush teeth twice a day (for at least two minutes each time), floss daily, visit a dentist every six months, and assist in the protection of teeth by chewing Trident for 20 minutes after eating and drinking. In fact, 4 out of 5 Dentists surveyed would recommend Trident to their patients.
- Plain pillow box
- Black marker
- Plastic spider
Outline the top edge and one side with black marker.
Use the ruler to draw lines coming from the top right corner.
Draw little “U” shapes in between the lines.
Glue the plastic spider to the pillow box.
And that’s it! The pillow box is ready to be filled and gifted. This craft is easy enough for older kids to do for their class.
