When they returned this week, I surprised them each with a festive cannister made from a recycled oatmeal can and their very own artwork. And of course, this is a kid's craft that is just in time for Purim, as these artful cannisters can certainly be used for mishloach manot gift baskets. If you're lucky enough to have saved all of your oatmeal cans, as I clearly have, you can whip up a bunch! Of course, cannisters, or even regular cans decorated with sheets of tissue paper collage also make great pencil holders, or even little planters! More gifts...

Supplies included a cutting mat, utility knife, ruler (this plastic quilting one didn't slide around as much as my metal cork-backed one), tape measure, kitchen scissors for trimming off extra bits, and a Sharpie.

Each panel is covered with a protective plastic film you remove at the end of the job. Tedious but worth it. Crafty Cuteness / SQUIRREL. iPhone/Smartphone Holders Galore.
