Candy Bar Letter Tips

2.  Rough Draft.  I usually jot down a few notes of what I want my letter to say.  From that rough draft you can then make your shopping list.

3.  Spacing.  I lay out my candy bars and treats on the poster board, guessing where they would fit, making sure I have enough room for everything.  If there isn’t enough room or too much room, adjust accordingly.  If you don’t have enough room, you can eliminate your least favorite sentence (You now have a treat for yourself!  Yay!)  or write your words smaller and fit the candy in tighter.  If you have extra room, write your words bigger and leave more space in-between sentences.

4.  Write the words.  I usually just wing it, writing everything with a sharpie, leaving spaces big enough for each treat.  My daughter just made a candy bar letter for Fathers Day and I had her write it in pencil first, just in case we wanted to adjust things before we added the sharpie.  This was a great idea for her.

5.  Attach candy bars and treats.  I’m sure there are several ways you could attach your treats.  I always use scotch tape or masking tape.  Some treats are heavier than others, so some might require more tape than others.  I use tape pieces about 1.5 inches long and roll them into a circle.  My daughter tried to use bigger rolls and her candy fell off the poster a lot more easily.  Now, if you are going to hang the poster up or put it on a door, you may need to look into stronger adhesives.

Here are a few ideas to spruce it up:
Use colored poster board.
Use stickers or markers to decorate the edges.
If it’s from kids, have them each sign their own names.
If you need it to be smaller or want to mail it, write the letter with blanks that are numbered.  Number your treats to match up with the appropriate blank.  Check out this good idea.
If you don’t like your handwriting, check out this option.

Candy bar letters are perfect for any occasion.  Fathers Day, Mothers Day, Birthdays, Teacher Appreciation, Thank You, Good Luck, Get Well Soon, Holidays, etc…  
Here are a few more candy bar letter ideas for you:

    Hi Holly,
    Just wanted to let you know I love reading your ideas. I had a suggestion to make aobut the candy boards. If they have a good size candy story using 6 or more candy bars they might also consider using the tri-fold boards. It’s easy to carry around and easy to set up anywhere, it can stand by itself. I would make candy boards for co-workers that were leaving or someone’s birthday. So I would put the story in the middle and let everybody sign on the sides, or put pictures on the sides.

    It is the most commonly made mistake you definitely want
    to avoid. There is really no scope for errors, especially with the photography beccause your wedding pictures freeze the most memorable moments off your
    life forever. Your wedding will be unique annd your wedding photographs should
    also be unique.

    I just checked out your website and your site takes longer than 3 seconds to load 🙁

    If your site takes so Long Time To Load you are losing more than half your traffic & 50% of visitors won’t return if they have trouble loading a page…

    That’s a really expensive mistake to make, specially if you are paying for traffic. I can help you to improve that.

    Please contact me by my email for details:

    Hi, Valerie, My initial response would be that it is a force of habit for your student to reverse letters and numbers when she is anxious. It can take a lot of unlearning to replace a bad habit. It might be helpful to dedicate a certain amount of time to specific reversals following the suggestions in the blog post. Repeated practice or over-learning in a stress-free setting will help to solidify proper formation. Thanks for your question!
