oh, what a relief it is

Today I sent the kids off to school with these for teacher appreciation week: popcorn, soda and an alka-seltzer-inspired rhyme.  We do this every year.*  Sometimes we include a pair of movie tickets.  This year it was just popcorn and Izzes.  The kids have new teachers every year, so it's new to them, but the p.e. and music teachers have received this at least three times.  Does that bother me?  Nope.
*These photos are from last year. This year I was out of clear bags, so I hole-punched the popcorn and tag, and tied everything up with twine.

*Me friend, Deb, gave me this idea.  We also used it for teacher appreciation in Primary one year.

I love this idea. I'll be using it again this year for my choir seniors. Thanks for reminding me how it looks.

Funny, we do the same thing for our teachers too! Good thing our kids go to different schools! Yours look way cuter than ours though, may have to copy the wrapping idea.

So great! I'm "borrowing" it too, for my kids teachers. . .they changed it to "School's out! Pop, pop, fizz, fizz, oh, what a shame it is!"

Thanks!!
