I love to find fun ways to teach with food and I think I found another good catch at the store the other day. I bought two boxes of the Scrabble fruit snacks and used them for a word work activity. I have done this before with Scrabble Cheez-It, but I loved how these were already in bags. My kids loved recording all their letters and making words. They made it into a bit of a contest to see who could come up with the most words. I made a printable to go with this, but the one pictured is one I had to cut and paste to make work on short notice. I feel bad because I can't even remember where I got it from. Anyway there is a link below to print out my recording form.
I also wanted to share a cute idea I did for Nurse’s Day last week. It is hard to find cute ideas for this special day. Our nurse is amazing and I wanted to give her a little themed basket. I found a ton of cupcake themed things at JoAnns in the dollar bin. I filled it full of cupcake post-its, cupcake pencils, candy, a cupcake scented candle, and vanilla frosting scented lotion. I also put a water bottle and peach tea packets in it too. I loved the tag I made that said, "You're Tea-rific." I got the tea-rific graphic and the large cupcake from Lettering Delights.
