Tis’ the season to smile, love others, and be a cheerful giver. Make someone smile with a Cuties Mandarin Oranges with a special note attached, or make a Reindeer Cuties to celebrate the season of sunshine.
I don’t know about you but I love the holiday season and the great love and warmth it brings. Being with my family in my cozy home is something I just love. There is nothing more special than to spend time with all of my kids and husband in our new home. Family is so important to me so being able to give back to them means so much!
During this special time of year, small gestures can mean a lot to others. Reminding your friends, family, co-workers, or neighbors how special they are can be so rewarding.
The folks at Cuties have a super cute innitiative where they want to celebrate 100 Days of Sunshine with Cuties. This sweet mission is one that I recently took part in to remind my family how awesome and amazing they truly are. By attaching small notes of kindness to each Cuties citrus fruit, I gifted my family each a delicious snack and message.
Thinking of fun and sweet messages to share with my family was the easy part. Having space to write down my sentiments was the hard part.
There was just so much sweetness I could have said about each.
A list of my recipients came in handy as I jotted down some uplifting thoughts.
Cuties with special notes were gifted to my two daughters, my only son, and my husband so far.
After receiving their Cuties, my family enjoyed a healthy and sweet snack.
We love how easy they are to peel for little hands.
My kids were even inspired to keep the Cuties with special notes going.
Their teachers, bus driver, and neighbors are all on their pay it forward lists.
We love Cuties this time of year and look forward to the months when they are back in season.
Right around the holidays, you can always find a basket of Cuties on my counter for all to enjoy.
These sweet and seedless mandarins are perfect for lunchbox treats and make a fun party favor when you dress them up as Reindeer for the holidays.
Our kids couldn’t resist adding googly eyes, forming brown pipe cleaner antlers, and attaching red pom, pom noses to our Cuties to make them little reindeer.
Imagine the joy and excitement the recipients of these Reindeer Mandarin Oranges will experience when my children attach little notes to them in a few weeks. It will be the cutest, and sweetest gesture of kindness for the holidays.
What you need to make Reindeer Mandarin Oranges:
- Cuties *available at Walmart. Use the store locator to find them closest to you.
- Brown Pipe Cleaners
- Red Pom Poms
- Googly Eyes
- Glue Dots
- Velcro Dots
Wash and dry each Cuties fruit
Take your pipe cleaner and fold it upwards in half and then criss-cross to make a circle. Bend antlers outwards.
Tape pipe cleaners to the back of the fruit.
To adhere eyes, use glue dots.
For the nose, I use velcro dots because they were stronger. You can find them at a craft store.
Add your Reindeer Mandarins to a basket and attach your sunshine notes to each to brighten someone specials’day this holiday season.
Who on your sunshine list would love a Cutie Reindeer?
