Next I wrapped up their sandwiches and put them in foil and then used double stick tape to put the "label" on the bag. (Labels from Family Fun as Well)
I bought Dr. Pepper jelly Beans-and opened the first bottle-(but used an Exacto knife to open the second bottle) poured out jelly beans
I took scotch tape and wrapped it around the lid, then took my embossing heat gun and "shrunk" it on the lid-can't even tell it was opened! Ta DA!
For my unsuspecting husband-I opened the apple chips bag ( from the bottom) and replaced the chips with the Maui Onion chips.
Then, very late at night, I went to bed. The kids were very surprised. I was the only mom who packed a trick lunch and all the kids kept saying "Open that bag!, "See what's in that one!" They loved it!
They couldn't figure out how I did the bottles, or the boxes that were glued on top. Lily thought I had bought special "April Fools Day " food.
The best thing was my husband didn't get I had switched the chips! He told me ( and I quote) " Don't buy those apple chips any more -its a waste of money because they taste just like NORMAL potato chips" Ha ha I fooled him! Yes! I made a pretend dinner and some crayons for Sawyer. I'll post those as well.
Merry Christmas! Val
