DIY raisin boxes to save money and trick your kids into eating

My son has developed a penchant for raisins. Not raisins out of a bulk baking bag and into a bowl, no, only Sunmaid raisins in the little box. We believe it’s the box that makes the raisins.

So I undid one (only glued on one side) and traced it 4X on an 8.5×11 piece of paper. Using this template I will print out and assemble coloured cardstock boxes that we will fill with raisins ourselves. Or print Thomas the Train or Dora the Explorer on lighter cardstock and stuff the boxes with any other manner of little food.

Score the cardstock along the dotted lines and cut along the solid lines. Double sided tape will work better than glue to hold the thing together.
