Gift idea: Hot Cocoa to Go Kits

Crank up the kid assembly line for this gift-making idea.  First, scout out the best place to buy envelopes of by-the-cup hot cocoa (buying in bulk is best).  Next, look at the supply list below.


  • By-the-cup hot cocoa envelopes
  • Cellophane bags (large enough to hold kit ingredients.  You can also use corsage bags bought in bulk, or non-zipping sandwich bags.)
  • Peppermint Sticks or Candies
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • Ribbon for tying bag closed

Assembly Steps:

  1. Have your children make separate piles for each item.  (Place loose items like marshmallows and peppermint sticks in bowls.)
  2. Place one cocoa envelope in each cellophane bag.
  3. Add several marshmallows and one peppermint stick.
  4. Tie bag with ribbon.

*You can also make gift tags to place inside the bags, or attach to the ribbon.
