DIY treat wrappers for a summer treasure hunt...

Oh Joy / DIY Treat Wrappers

Inspired by Easter egg hunts and how much kids love finding special treats and treasures in their own backyard, I wanted to create a summer treasure hunt for Ruby and her besties that could be made and enjoyed any time of year.

We custom-designed these wrappers (download the templates below) that can be printed on glassine paper through a regular laser printer. With some fun graphics, they instantly become the perfect wrapper for treats and small toys to hide for the hunt!

The kids had so much fun looking for treasure and then opening them up to discover little treats and other fun toys. Here's how to make these DIY Treat Wrappers...

You'll need:

-glassine paper

-letter-sized card stock

-masking tape

-laser printer

-Oh Joy custom templates (download here or create your own artwork)

-scissors

-treats and small, age-appropriate toys

-optional: baskets to collect treats

Here's how:

1. Cut sheets of glassine paper and use masking tape to secure them to letter-sized card stock. This will allow you to be able to feed the glassine through a laser printer. Follow your printer's directions so you know which way to feed it through to print on the correct side.

2. Print our templates (or your own artwork) onto the glassine. Let dry at least one hour to make sure the ink is dry to the touch before removing the masking tape and glassine from each sheet.

3. Wrap small toys or treats (we used bite-sized pieces of Quaker Chewy granola bars) in the paper and twist the ends like candy.

4. Hide in your backyard or a local park and send the kids on fun summer treasure hunt!
