A Tub Full of Sunshine

Written by Lyndi. Posted in Free Printables, Graphic Design, Kids & Family Life

It seems like tragedy is happening all around us, and recently my daughter has a friend who's dad passed away unexpectedly.  In these situations it's hard to know how to help, what to say or what you can do.  We wanted to brighten her day, so we came up with an idea to give her a Tub Full of Sunshine!

We began by going to Target and finding anything that was yellow, orange or hot pink!  We got this awesome tub there for only 7 bucks and it fit everything in it perfectly!  The key is to get big stuff for the bottom that doesn't cost a lot of money...we got a huge thing of bubbles, soda, gatorade and a big bag of chips for the filler, then we arranged all the smaller things on top and it looks like it is stuffed full of fun.  



After we arranged everything, we wrapped cellophane around the tub and attached this tag to the top (download for free below)!


Here is the final product...I think this would make anyone smile!

    That’s a great idea. I need to start putting together more I’ve been thinking about you baskets for friends that have been having a rough go of it.
