Like many of you, I do a "Meet & Greet" before the first day of school. It's a great chance to meet the families, ease some anxieties and stir up some excitement for the year to come. I like to give the kids a little goody to take with them and I usually do the "Lucky Charms" goody bags because they're so cute (and inexpensive). Because of the severe food allergies of a couple of students, I needed to come up with a new idea. Aiming again for cute and inexpensive, I headed to - anyone care to venture a guess here- yup, the Dollar Tree and picked up a few 8-packs of Wonder Dough (Dollar Tree's version of Play-Doh.)
I came up with a little quote, created some cute clipart and printed up some "kindergarten-y" labels and voila! Goodies for the whole class for the grand total of $3.00. Can't beat that!
The tubs were not quite the right size to use standard self-stick labels with, so I just printed the labels on paper and glued them on. If you'd like to make your own, click below the picture to grab a copy of the labels. Enjoy!
