This Year is Looking Bright {Back to School Gifts}

I have been working on a back to school gift idea for my students this past week.  Our school hosts a "Meet and Greet" the Friday before school starts and I always set a little something out for the kids.  I also like to give them a little something on the first day of school.  Is it necessary?  No, but I think it helps put the kids at ease and it makes them happy!

I plan to share this cute and simple gift with my students at our Meet and Greet.


I originally saw the idea on Pinterest (click HERE to see the original pin), but it was a dead link.  I was hoping the pin might lead me to a free tag, but no luck.  So, I made my own!

To make this easy gift, simply print the number of tags you need and cut them to size. You can grab the tag {HERE}.

You will also need to cut some scrapbook paper (I cut mine 4 x 6 inches).  Clearly, I like a wild combination of prints, but use whatever makes you happy!


Next, tape two glow bracelets (I got mine at Michael's: 15 bracelets for $1) to the center of the cut scrapbook paper.


To attach the label to the scrapbook paper, glue along the top and bottom only.  Then, place the label over the bracelets (by placing the glue at the top and bottom you avoid getting glue on the bracelets).  I used rubber cement, but a glue stick would work just fine.


That's all there is to it!  Click {HERE} to grab a copy of these labels.  I left some space at the bottom of the glow stick label for your signature. ;)


Are you still here?  If so, I've got another back to school freebie for you!  Just print, cut, and attach to a bag of Goldfish crackers.  Click here to download.  Enjoy!


Toodles!!

  21. Hi Aimee!

    These are sooo cute! I want to do the "o-fish-ally" tags for Open House, but I teach Preschool. By any chance would you consider doing a "Preschooler" tag?

    All the best,
    Jenny

  25. Aimee, Thank you for the labels! On the glow sticks label you mentioned that you left space for a teacher name. How do I add that....doesn't seem to be editable.

    1. This freebie is not editable. There is space at the bottom of the note to write your name by hand, which is always a nice way of adding a personal touch to your gift. :)
