I don’t know anyone who is happy about how school ended this year. Teachers, kids, and parents are all sad and disappointed. One thing that my kids have found really difficult is that they were never able to say one more goodbye to their teachers. They weren’t able to say thank you, and hug their teachers, and that’s been so upsetting to them. It’s almost like they are lacking the closure for ending out this school year. So, we were thrilled to put together some last thank you gifts for their teachers this year and put together some care packages to send their way. My kids’ teachers seem to always love thoughtful, handmade gifts and that’s what our kids want to make for them too. So, we got out some awesome craft supplies from our most recent Babbleboxx on our craft porch and got to work.
We started with painting a picture frame for Tripp’s teachers (he painted it all himself) and I’ve ordered the sweetest picture of him with his teachers at their class pumpkin patch day to put in it. While he was doing this Maddie Grace was writing cards for her teachers and drawing pictures of her with them on there. One thing I love about this is that they really show how awesome her handwriting and spelling got during the time she was in their class. Then we made some shirts for them saying “I <3 my teachers” that they can wear when they take the gifts to their teachers houses and wave at them through the window. I think their teachers will really get a kick out of that. We are putting all the special items for their teachers in gift bags and taking them to them this week!

And naturally all this crafting left my kids wanting a snack. Because in typical summer form my kids want a snack every 5 minutes. Maddie Grace was so excited when we got this box and shrieked with joy when she saw the Quaker Kids Organic Whole Grain Bars and Bites because “THESE ARE WHAT MAGGIE GETS IN HER LUNCH!” And apparently this sweet friend has shared her snack with Maddie Grace and she already loves them.. Quaker Kids Organic Whole Grain Bars and Bites are a hit with both my kids and me. They have 11-19g of 100% whole grains per serving, no artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup, no added colors, and are certified organic and Non-GMO Project verified. They are delicious, a great snack size, and I love that they are designed especially for kids.
