Testing Treats

This week, our third grade neighbors will begin their first round of end of the year testing.  To show some support, I made these fun little gifts for the students.


I bought some Hersey's Kisses, microwavable popcorn, and a pack of mini bubbles.  Then, I simply printed the signs out, taped them to a paper straw that I purchased from Michaels, and stuck them into the basket/containers you see above.  Easy peasy!


Here are a few close ups of each of the gifts.



I knew that left over Easter grass I had packed away would come in handy!  I found these little mini bubbles at Michaels.  They are perfect!



I personally think that they should get to watch a movie while they chomp on this popcorn.  Testing is hard work, they need to relax a bit too!


Many of the kids next door were my own second graders last year, and the teacher is one of my closest friends, so I love being able to let them know that they are being thought of.  It's a small gesture, but I hope it makes them feel special and reminds them that they are supported.

Last year, I was able to include student made gifts, but unfortunately, our testing schedule wasn't released until last Tuesday, and I was in the midst of putting on a school play (my kiddos rocked that, by the way).  You can read more ideas about supporting test takers here
