Keeping your kids busy and entertained is no easy feat. Luckily for us, McDonald’s is helping us make mealtime fun! The fast-food chain just released the template for their iconic Happy Meal Boxes so you can make them at home! All you have to do is go to McDonald’s website, download the template, and then print it.
It’s worth noting, it would be best to print the template on heavy-duty paper such as card stock to ensure the box holds its shape. Alternatively, you could also print the template on regular printer paper and then trace it onto cardboard. If you choose to go this route you could then allow your kids to paint their Happy Meal boxes. There is plenty of fun and easy ways to keep you and your kids busy!
Once you have you have your boxes prepared you could fill them with their favorite McDonald’s treats by picking up your order in the drive-thru or ordering for delivery. Alternatively, you could also fill the boxes with homemade versions of their favorite restaurant treats. Let’s explore that next.
