Monday- Snowman Pretzal
You find these cute little Christmas tags HERE.
Yummy chocolate covered pretzels.
I had a great time making these little snowman pouches. It's very easy to make, but it took a few days because I made about 45 of them. You can see a youtube video on how to make one HERE! She said to use a certain size envelope, which I don't have so I substituted with a regular No. 9. Cut the envelope in half to make two snowman. Just cut it at 41/2 inches in from both ends so the snowman's head will still look proportioned.
I wrapped up the pretzels in a cellophane bag and then stuffed it inside the envelope. The cello bags were cheap. 40 for $1.00 at $tree. Best deal ever! I bought like 5 packs. I plan on doing more chocolate coverd yummies. They aren't the usual pretzal stick cellophane bags. The size was about 4X6, but it fit my smaller pretzals perfectly. I actually went looking for the regular sized pretzal sticks and didn't find any at Walmart. So, I bought a smaller sized pretzal pack to practice on and I couldn't be more happier. Everything just worked out great.
Tuesday - S'more Love for You
Saw this picture on Pinterest. Loved it! Thought it was a cute and simple little gift that I could do. So I did. I forgot to take pictures of mine after bagging them all up. Below is the tag I made to go with the yummy stuff. It's saved as a PDF, so you could right click and save as if you want it. I just used one of my circle punchers to punch out the tag.
Wednesday- Candy in Pouch
All I did was cut strips of papers (big enough for the fun size chocolate candy bars and Pixy Stix) to fit inside. Fold the the paper and glue the sides.
Thursday - Hygiene Pack
I teach 5th graders, so good hygiene is really important. They're at the beginning of their growing years. I started the day with a hygiene lesson. Explained the importance of staying clean and healthy. We also watched a great video and sang a song from United Streaming Videos. At the end of the day, they reviewed all that they learned and then I passed out the gift. My sister in law is really good at couponing. So, I asked her if she could donate some stuff. She bought everything for all of my students (Thanks Patty!). They really liked it.
Friday- Hot Cocoa
Just put a packet of hot chocolate, some marshmellows, a candy cane, a straw (optional) in a cup and bag it up. Tie the sweet hot cocoa poem on it and voila! Below is a copy of one of the poems I made.
There you have it. I had a lot of fun making these little gifts. My students are very sweet and deserved it.
