Project Instructions

  1. Using white construction paper, cut several slips that measure ½ inch wide by 5 inches long. Write your good deeds on these slips of "fortune" paper.
  2. To make the fortune cookies, cut several 4-inch circles from the tan foam sheet. Fold the circle in half with the fortune paper sandwiched in between. Parents, bring the sides of the circle together (like a fortune cookie looks) and secure with glue. Use a clip clothespin to hold in place until the glue is dry.
  3. Using the foam alphabet letters, spell out a special message on the take-out box. Decorate the outside of the box with Glitter Glue, foam stickers of choice or jewel-embellished circles. Let glue dry.
  4. Fill the box with your special foam fortune cookies and share with a friend.
