  1. Start by creating 4-5 notes for your child, using either colored card stock or a blank card. Write messages to your child on each note from Mom – for example, “Keep up the good work!,” “Good Luck!,” “You Rock!,” or “You’re SWEET!” Include a couple additional messages from other family members, like Dad, a sibling or the family pet.
  2. Fill the takeout favor bag/box with 4-5 individual HERSHEY’S KISSES Chocolates. Fill supply storage box with additional school supplies of choice.
  3. Close the supply storage box and decorate with puff paints and/or decorative stickers. Ideas include writing the child’s name and “Back-to-School Survival Kit” on the front or use images of the child’s favorite cartoon or movie character to personalize.
