My son starts kindergarten tomorrow and this morning I dropped him off for his last day of daycare. At least I made it back to the car before I started crying. He's been attending the same daycare since he was 6 weeks old so we'll miss seeing the staff on a daily basis. I wanted to make a little something to thank the staff for taking such great care of our son over the past 5+ years. I came up with this:
Homemade cookies would have been a nice touch but I've worked the 6 days leading up the start of school so I just ran out of time. Fortunately the Keebler Elves came to my rescue and I purchased 3 packages of cookies on sale for $1.99 each. (And those Keebler Elves are pretty good little bakers.) Simply put the cookies in a cellophane bag ($1 for 2 bags at Dollar Tree). I had to cut 8 inches off the top of the bag because it was a little big. Tie with a ribbon and use a binder clip and attach a cute tag (printed fom my computer):
I also included a handmade thank you card.
(And fingers crossed that I make it through tomorrow without any major breakdowns!)
