- Large Poster Board (Depending on the size of your candy bars, you may need two)
- Candy Bars (Complete list below)
- Double-Sided Tape (Compare prices)
- Marker or Printer Paper and Scissors
Instructions:Start off by finding the candy bars. I will list the candy bars Sara and Joey used in their candy car letter, but I encourage you to browse the candy bar shelves at a store near you and see what kind of ideas you can come up with.
Here is the letter they wrote. Where you see the bold words that are in parentheses, those are where you insert the candy bars and not the words.
(Insert Name of Graduate Here),The easiest way to write this letter is actually to print it out. If you print out all of the words you need and cut them out, you can easily arrange all of the words and candy bars on the poster board before you tape them down. The double-sided tape worked perfectly, but test out your tape to make sure it will hope the heavy candy bars!
We were going to give you a (Whoppers with the "ers" blacked out)-ing (100 Grand) for your graduation, but the money slipped through our (Butterfinger)-s and it's not (PayDay). We didn't think a pet (KitKat), a trip to New (York) on a shopping (Spree), or an (Orbit) around the (Milk Way) would be appropriate. We want to wish you (Mounds) of (Almond Joy) as you eat this card. We hope it doesn't make you (Rollo)-ver and get sick. If it does, we promise not to (Snickers with the "s" blacked out). Use your (Smarties) to (Tootsie Roll) over the other (Airheads). We hope your success is (Good and Plenty) because you are such a (Sweetarts).
(Hot Tamales) Joey, (Life Savers with the "s" blacked out) Sara, and (Runts with the "s" blacked out) Easton
