I am not as in to decorating for the season etc as some, but we did come up with a treat for my son's class mates and one for his teacher to celebrate fall and give them a treat in light of the upcoming Halloween celebration.
Here is what we used for the class treats
While the chocolate was still wet on the pretzels we sprinkled on our sprinkles. We let them sit until the chocolate dried hard. (I didn't time this part we just did some other family bonding while we waited)
There may have been an easier way to do this, but 20 kids are going to know today that they were thought of. That makes the time and effort well worth it to me. The pretzels were 2.50 the chocolate chips about 2.68 and I used most of the bag of each one, but there was a little left for us to snack on too. The witch bags I found at a thrift store unopened for .50. The ribbon I already had. The sprinkles were 1.50, and the Frosty's coupons were 10 for 1.00. I purchased 2 books. I spent a little under 9.00 to let my Prince's class mates know they were thought of. If you are a savvy shopper or a couponer, I bet you could make something like this to brighten someone's day for even less.
For his teacher we made a fall gift of Pumkin Spice Sugar Scrub. I can't take credit for the idea, I got the recipe from another blog.
I couldn't get her labels to print though so here was our end result
Our packaging for this was a recycled Pure Leaf tea bottle, I just cut the label off (of course the bottle has been completely washed with hot soapy water etc.) This recipe filled the 18.5 oz bottle 3/4 of the way full. We put ribbon around the top. If I could do it over, I would design a better label. But we didn't do bad in a pinch.
Hope you enjoyed this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
