bursting with excitement

When Stephanie started 6th grade, Greg had the idea to take a little gift when she went around the school following her schedule to get an idea of where her classes were located. Great idea! Why didn't I think of that?!

So she walked her schedule and introduced herself to the teachers that happened to be working in their rooms. I'm using the word introduce loosely here. I think Greg had to initiate some of the talking there. 

In 6th grade, she gave popcorn since she was "poppin' in to meet them." Last year, she gave her teachers candy bars in hopes of a "sweet year." We have to change it up every year because she has the same band teacher each year. Can't have repeats, now, can we?

This year, she is "bursting with excitement" and giving her teachers Starbursts.

I wrapped the candy with patterned paper, backed the printed tag with scalloped card stock, and tied it with baker's twine. I used yellow and blue because those are her school colors. We kept the patterns/colors gender neutral because we didn't know whether her teachers are male or female until we got her schedule while we were at school.

This is a cute, easy, and inexpensive way to make a teacher's day. What teacher wouldn't like to get candy in the days before school while they are busy planning and room rearranging?

Heather will bring her teacher a treat at the meet the teacher day next week.

Punch the circles out with a 2.5" punch or cut them out freehand. Your child's name can go in the space towards the bottom.  If you don't have a large scallop punch, you can adhere the printed circle to a piece of card stock and cut around it leaving a border. Wrap the Starburst with fun patterned paper (I cut mine 5" by 3 3/4") and attach your tag.

P.S. If you are someone who knows Heather's teacher this year, she has requested you keep this information to yourself so she can surprise him. Thanks. :)
