Pt 1 of 2 end of year classroom treats on a budget

With end of the year fun comes lots of little treats needing to be made for classroom friends and end-of-the-year parties. I have two kids in school , both with birthdays this month too, ironically enough! So, since I feel like I always have to scour Pinterest for ideas for stuff, here is the inspiration for this project, though mine is a different twist. Here

-sandwich ziplock baggies
-gummy worms
-yarn to tie things off

Lets get started…


If you have an eager helper, put them to work using their counting skills to count out the gummy worms and marshmallows! ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜˜



Now, lean the sweet goodies to one side and zip the zipper, then tie with yarn in the middle of the Baggie so you will have a vague butterfly shape.



Insert carefully the pretzels until the other side is completely full and zip the Baggie completely.


TA DA!!! Butterfly treat!!! Now, finish making how many you need and prep the labels…


Now thankfully I lucked out, and had one of these scrapbook kits on hand, and it so happened to have just enough sticker labels for my goodie bags. So I labeled them, and tied them onto the baggies rather than using them as stickers. I had to come up with something witty to write on them in order to tie in butterflies, and thankfully, I felt, came up w something cute. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
They say “This summer “butter-fly” by so I can see you again soon!”




Once your labels are made, tie them onto the baggies, and send them to class!! I also purchased these great water bottles at the dollar tree dollar store, which have a remove able snack cup on the bottom!! The snacks were also all purchased at the dollar store, making this butterfly project cost under $5 for the entire thing. (12 classmates). I hope this helped!! Post any great ideas you had too! I will have many more years of this ahead of me.
