That’s not true.
I don’t love January. Especially when I have to deal with this..
There is so much snow…EVERYWHERE.
And word on the street is…we are getting more on Monday.
So no, I don’t heart January. But my Weekend Warrior gals and I have come together to give you some great ideas.
But I do love February! And Valentine’s Day is my FAVORITE holiday (My husband says I say that about all the holidays).
I love the candy, treats and most of all the love!! But, although I love Valentine’s Day…I don’t have a single picture of my classroom set up on V-Day. I have no idea why…but I’ll be sure to take tons of pictures this year.
My most favorite part of celebrating V-Day with the kiddos…is how excited they are to share their cards and treats with all their friends and loved ones. Since I started teaching, I always struggled with how to help my kiddos store all their goodies.
I’ve used tissue boxes.
I’ve used cereal boxes.
I even got desperate one year and just used Ziploc bags.
I just couldn’t get it together.
And finally one year it clicked…
I’m not sure if I saw the idea online or if a friend told me about it but…
I started using gift bags.
But they have one rule:
You CANNOT decorate over your name.
The kids do a great job passing out treats with these bags. They simply slip in their treat and move on to the next bag.
Then, at the end of the day I staple the bag shut and have them place their bags in their backpacks.
Easy peasey clean and easy.
I find the Kraft bags at Michaels for 12 for $6.99.
And if you’re like me you download ALL the coupons you can before you go.
