I absolutely love making gifts with my kids.
We often turn to gifts that I know will be yummy (insert smiley face here), but I also love giving pictures as gifts as well. In fact, I often call my camera my third child. So, imagine how thrilled I was when I found out that I could have pictures of my kids & something yummy… ((squeal))
I’ve been eyeing My MyMMs.com for years. The idea of writing personalized messages on candy is just plain genius.
But, what I didn’t realize is that my M&Ms can be made with photos on them!! When we got our bag of personalized M&Ms, we knew exactly what gift we wanted to make with them.
What You’ll Need for this M&M Gift From Kids
- My M&M’s
- Small containers (we used small magnetic jars we bought in the dollar section of our local craft supply store)
- Gift tags
- Pearl Stickers (from our local craft store)
We decided to add the words, “We Love You” & “Family Rocks” on the other M&M’s as well as an image with a heart and xo xo. You get four choices for your personalized M&M’s. I love that we could not only mix and match colors, but we could use a variety of text, photo, and clip art that M&M provides!
Our theme was a simple way to send a little (chocolate) love to family that lives far away.
How to Make This I-Spy M&M Gift From Kids
Our bag came with a small scoop, so my oldest helped scoop M&M’s into the magnetic jars.
Then, she wrote special cards to each of her Grandparents to tell them how much she missed them.
For all of them, we added a tag that said: I-Spy with my little eye, someone who loves you!
I guarantee that the Grandparents are going to be shocked when they see their grandchildren on an M&M!!
More than anything this season (or any season), I love that we are reminding our family that no matter how busy we are, we are always thinking of them and we love them.
Sometimes a simple gift is the perfect way to show that love.
