End of the Year Gifts!

For the very first year I am 100% on top of it and have my kiddos’ end of the year gifts and books done a week and a half early!! (Well the books are almost done… they are all put together, which is the hardest part! I just need to take their “jumping” pictures this week to glue on the covers!) No joke, last year I was up super late the night before the last day of school finishing everything up… not fun!
I am in LOVE with these sunglasses! They are from the Target dollar spot! Someone awesome (who I can’t remember now! ahhh!!!) posted about them on their blog and I ran out right away to get them! Cleared out almost the entire bin!
Then I typed up these cute little tags to go with them!
{You can get the tags for free at my tpt store here!}
In addition to the cute shades, I had also already been working on their “Survival Kit for Life” buckets!
They include some little goodies with bits of advice to go with each item.
{You can get the tags for free in my tpt store here!}
The buckets were 99 cents from Michaels! Plus I used my teacher discount to get them for even cheaper!
I am going to miss my kiddos so much! My class this year was so much fun, and I know I am going to get teary-eyed reading this to them on the last day!
I am linking up with sweet Tara for Monday Made It! I am looking forward to linking up more often during the summer with all the fun summer crafts I have in mind!

  1. Those sunglasses are adorable! I love the fun patterns! Your survival kits are super cute too! Thanks so much for sharing! Good luck finishing out the year!

    How can I get a copy of the tag you made with the sunglasses? I love this idea for my pre-k students!

  16. Nikki says:

    I love this idea. I downloaded the material on TPT and saw you also did this with water bottles. I was wondering if you could please tell me where you got those bottles from? I LOVE them!

  17. Laura O'Leary says:
