Owl Miss You! Sweet treats and special end-of-the-year student gift ideas...
Are you looking for a quick, easy and not too expensive little something to give your students at the end of the year?
I designed an “Owl Miss You” themed-packet of items I think you might enjoy.
I really like playing with words, and when I was surfing the net for owl clip art I came across that cute saying about a dozen or so times.
I like to give credit where credit is due, so if you are the originator of this sweet saying, let me know and I’ll post your name as well as link up to your site and whatever idea you had that you used it with.
In the meantime, candy is always a big hit with students and since I have a membership at both Costco and Sam’s Club I can buy in bulk and save.
The Dollar Store is also a great place to get goodies as well as Walmart. Simply watch ads for Dollar Day Deals all spring and summer long too.
Buy a box of Hershey’s milk chocolate candy bars.
Run off my “Owl miss you!” candy bar wrapper on tan construction paper, leave it as is, or add some color with markers or crayons.
Personalize them by writing your students’ names on the heart balloon.
Wrap the bars and seal them shut with a large heart or smilie sticker, or print off my owl labels by putting a sheet of large, Avery (30-on-a-page) labels in your printer.
These adorable owls on the labels, are from Laura Strickland's My Cute Graphic's clipart collection.
For added pizzazz, choose one of the owl bookmarks and tuck one inside the candy bar before you wrap it.
I also like to send home a variety of “Don’t forget!” kinds of things that my students can have fun reviewing over the summer.
I’ve included owl-themed traceable skip counting cards by 2’s, 3’s, 5’s and 10’s as well as counting cards from 1-30.
There are also cards for the alphabet, ordinal numbers, days of the week, and colors.
I've also made a note from the teacher as well.
