Fab Family Fun: Making Invitations and Thank-Yous With Fruit Snacks

Are you stocked up on Fruit Snacks of all varieties? Judging from the number of stores that just couldn't keep their shelves full last week, I bet a lot of you are!

Here are some simple ideas for you and your children to make invitations and thank you cards with those fruit snacks!

Idea #1 Fruit Roll-Ups

"Roll-Up Your Sleeping Bag And Come to Katie's Slumber Party!"

You can use this invitation for any type of overnight activity: a scout camp out, backyard camp out, girls' overnight out, etc.

Idea #2 Stickerz

"Stick April 10th on Your Calendar!"

This is also a birthday party invitation, but you can use this idea for virtually anything. The catch phrase is "Stick (insert date) on Your Calendar!" followed by an event of any type.

Idea #3 Gushers

"We're Gushing With THANKS. We Couldn't Have Done It Without You!"

Again, this is very versatile and can be used as a thank-you card for anything. You could use it as a thank-you for a gift by leaving off the second line and personalizing it.

Here's an example: "We're Gushing With THANKS for the cute little pajamas and slippers you gave us. Our baby will be so warm in them!"

These are the most basic form of cards and invitations. Embellish them with stickers, glitter, whatever you have!

What other ideas do you have? Feel free to share!

Those are great. We're saving a bunch of our fruit snacks to hand out at Halloween. I'm the librarian at our little library in town, too, so some of the fruit snacks I'm going to use as incentives during our summer reading program. But those cards are great!
