I'm happy to report that I'm way ahead of myself this school year, at least in one area: the first day of school treat. That's right, folks. I already know what the first day of school treat will be, and I've already made half of it. This is something that doesn't usually happen until...oh...about 2 hours before the first kids come home on the first day of school.
Aren't you just insanely proud of me?
Yeah. Didn't think so. Whatever. Thought I'd share, just in case you're not as on top of things as me (see that? That's my tongue planted firmly in my cheek. Anyway...).
I was inspired by this, found in an image search. I borrowed it, added some text, et voila! A cute little tag to attach to a bag or box of m&ms candies. Adorable, right?
I'm actually giving this one to Bubby's teacher. He's kind of a health nut, so I don't know if he'll appreciate m&ms, but eh...I'm going with it's-the-thought-that-counts on this one. And maybe, if he doesn't want them, he'll give them to one of my favorite Mrs. Ws...
For the kids, I decided to go a step further. You know I'm planning on making these cookies once the freezer empties out a bit, so for the boys, I made these:
Thank goodness I still have a little over a week to ruminate and ponder and contemplate and fixate on this question (there goes my tongue in my cheek again).
Do you have any first day of school traditions? Please share in the comments.
