I dont know about you guys but every year right before Christmas I remember that I need to make/buy gifts for all the wonderful aids/helpers in my daughter’s school and I panic. I panic because there are so many people and I have no idea what to get them all. My daughter is so generous and she wants to give something to EVERYONE. When we make a list of the people that we should get presents for, the conversation sounds something like this:
“We need to get something for the other lunch aid. Not my regular lunch aid, but the other one, because she helped me once a few months ago when my regular aid was out and she is very nice.”
Then I stare at my list of twenty people and I wonder what I could possibly give them all for a few dollars each that would not be total garbage. This year, I found an idea on Pinterest that I am so happy with and I just had to share it with you!
I am not sure who came up with this idea. I did not. I am not taking credit. I am just showing you my take on it. Periodically I am going to post an idea that I find on Pinterest with you guys. Hopefully, it can help you, too.
So, to begin you must assemble your supplies. You will need:
– a glue gun and glue sticks (I have the cheapest one ever that I bought at Michaels years ago. I have used it thousands of times and it keeps on ticking. No need to buy anything fancy here.)
– one regular-sized Kit Kat bar for each sleigh
– 10 Hershey miniatures for each sleigh
– a spool of thickish ribbon (I used gold)
– a peel and stick bow for each sleigh
– 2 candy canes per sleigh
To begin, let your glue gun warm up and assemble your supplies. Then take a Kit Kat bar and put a strip of hot glue down each side and attach a candy cane.
Next, you are going to create a pyramid of Hershey’s Miniatures on top of the Kit Kat. I used four bars for the base. Hot glue those babies right on.
Next you are going to glue ribbon onto the sleigh and top it with a bow.
That is all there is to it! So cheap and so easy! Now the lucky recipient can eat the candy or save it as a cute decoration.
