Mailing Someone A Hug

I found the idea to mail someone a hug via Pinterest over at Roots & Wings Co

We thought this would be a fun idea to mail to a cousin for her birthday.  So, we rolled out some paper.  We have an Ikea Mala easel and the paper was the perfect size.

I traced my son's outline onto the paper.

He colored in his features.

Then we wrote, "Sending you a big hug for your birthday" and rolled it up {we kept ours a little simpler than hers}. 

We thought it would be fun to mail in a tube so first the kids colored the tube.

Then we included long things we could find like punching balloons, Laffy Taffy, gum, Fruit Roll-ups and pencils. 

Fun, simple birthday package.

Pin It!
