spring treats

Every week Jenna's classroom honors one student by holding a "Marvelous Me" celebration. It's an opportunity for the kids to have show and tell and share photos of themselves and their families as well as what their favorite things are. Everyday the child gets to do something different and on Friday the student may bring a treat for the class (which is optional).

Normally I would have passed on bringing treats. I usually end up not getting anything done in time and I'm just not a go to the store and buy a pack of cupcakes kind of mom. Not because I think it's dumb or lazy, just cause I always have to plan to make something cute, and then run out of time to do it *lol* that's just how I am.

Anyway, I actually managed to do what I had intended to do this time! That's very exciting for me! We aren't allowed to bake homemade goodies so that wasn't an option. I chose to create a treat bag topper and fill bags with candy. Created the bag topper last night and had them printed at Wal-Mart today. Here is the end result:

The photo doesn't do them justice... they're really cute.


  1. Oh my gosh! That's adorable! What did her teacher say? I can't imagine having my kid bring home one of those from another kid in the class. I mean, how does someone top that?
    Great job! I'm totally going to try it.
