A test-taking encouragement candy gram can be a thoughtful way to show support and provide a boost of motivation for students preparing for an important exam.

Our kids are taking part in state testing this week and my cool friend Meegan had this cute idea to send a sweet note of encouragement to school.

“We know that you are no ‘dum dum’ so use your ‘smarties’ on your test! Good Luck!”

How to Use

Download the Candy Gram Note Card Download, I even included a blank card if you prefer to write it yourself. Print on white card-stock. Cut out the card and hot glue on the candy.

Hide the card in their notebook or backpack and you are good to go. Receiving a candy gram can be a morale booster, and the words of encouragement attached to the candy can help them feel more confident and motivated about their upcoming exam.

More Encouragement

You might ask why take the time to do this? I think we can all agree that we are all looking for ways to connect with our kids. A little bit of test encouragement can reduce stress by providing a moment of levity and provide a distraction with a moment of joy.

Giving a candy gram shows that you care about the person’s success and that you are there to support them during a challenging time. Such a simple way to show support.
