I saw this and thought it was so cute. It seems you can make anything out of Rice Krispies. I have made countless batches of the Rice Krispie squares...a favorite of my kids and school kids (during my stints as room mother) So if your kids want to make something inexpensive for you...here's an idea. Maybe they could fill it with some tiny flowers wrapped in a wet paper towel and Saran Wrap.... or fill with M & M's.....or a piece of jewelry from Dad.
