Valentine's Day Goodies
Although I enjoy baking, I've decided to lay off the baked goodies this holiday. Several of the kids will be distributing candy, cookies and cupcakes for the party. I am opting to go with a non-food treat.
When deciding what to bring, I thought about something my son loves. And that is, Play-Doh, the moldable, squishy, ball of fun.
I ordered a couple of miniature Play-Doh party packs that I found at Target. It can be found here. I picked up some clear cellophane treat bags from Dollar Tree, found here. And, I made some labels to fold over and staple to the bags. I just made this using a simple Word document. All the supplies I used are pictured below.
I dropped the Play-Doh in each treat bag, folded the card around the opening of the bag and secured it with a staple. It took me less than thirty minutes to do thirty treat bags for the class.
This is a simple idea that can be done at the last minute for parties. Since I missed the Christmas party last year, I am trying to be more organized and come up with these ideas in advance, hence another reason for the non-edible treats. As I come up with more ideas like this, I will post them here. Hopefully, these quick ideas will help my fellow working parents out there.
