I love you clothes pins: Write a message with a FINE POINT sharpie so it doesn't smear. Write "I love you" on a paper. Cut it out, and hot glue it to the clothes pin end. Would be cute for a care package!
DIY wall art project: kids can glue & place buttons inside a simple silhouette shape of larger animal, and sign a gift card with corresponding image (thank you for your silent auction purchase - proceeds to benefit our school)
