The last example of an oatmeal container craft that is great for the whole family is to make cookies and to use the oatmeal container as a festive gift box to store the goodies in.
Oatmeal Container Cookie Box
As a family, gather together the materials that you will use for decorating your oatmeal box. You may want to cover the container in gift wrap. Another idea is to cover the container in a plain paper and then draw or paint your decorations on the outside. You can use fabric and ribbon to add a more elegant touch to the container. You can use old cards or calendar photos to put under the lid so that your gift recipient will not be able to see right through the box. Inside of the box of course the item of choice is probably to fill it with cookies but there are many other treats that an oatmeal container is perfect for housing. Using a coffee can as a pan, you can bake round cakes that will fit perfectly into your oatmeal container gift box. Fudge or homemade candies are also perfect contents for your fun family oatmeal container craft project.
As you can see there is an oatmeal craft for every type of family’s ability and time commitment. Working together as a family to think creatively is beneficial to the children because they are able to see how to work well with others. Parents are able to enjoy the time that they have with their children by doing something different and creative that everyone can enjoy.
