Since I put Reagan in preschool two days a week this year (yes, we still homeschool--three days a week!), I needed to make teacher's gifts and classmate goody bags. After scouring pinterest for some ideas, I settled on these two--Hats and Cupcake Socks.
I put my own twist on both and wa-lah! The results are below! I have to say I had a blast and the gifts were simple and inexpensive to make. Breakdown is below:
2 pack of socks (each teacher gets a two pack!):$3.17 (60% off clearance sale at JoAnn's)
1 pail: $1.19 (60% off clearance at JoAnn's)
Cellophane paper, red pompom on hand (I picked up the cute checkered ribbon at JoAnn's as well for 60% off--but it's the same pattern they've had for years..I stock up every year after Christmas usually!)
Total cost for each teacher's gift: UNDER $5!
Hats: $1 each at the Target Dollar spot
Cocoa: $1.00 for 10/packs
Marshmallows: $2.50/bag (I only used half the bag that I had purchased for our own use at home!)
Cost per classmate: approx $1.21 (made 12 goody bags)
LOVED MAKING THESE!!
