End of the Year Gifts

Hi all!

Here's a quick little post on my end of the year gifts.

I did a gift for my Kiwanis reading volunteers (I adore them!). I had all the kiddos use their thumbs to put a print at the bottom of the jar. Then I turned their print into some kind of insect. When it was dry I put some cookies inside. E-A-S-Y!


And now for my kiddos gifts... We have been using dice all year for games and I found some at the Dollar Tree, so here we have it...


Inside are instructions for games to play with the dice! Now I only hope my students will use them... lol :) You can download the card below just in case you are still thinking about a kiddo gift!

Love this cute idea! (And I am also digging the fact the price is right!) A while ago I bought dice erasers at the Dollar Tree which I think my students would LOVE! Must see if I can find them now...

Cute ideas! I like that you included some ideas for using the dice so the kids would actually play games with them. :)

Oooooohhhhhhh . . . {mouth hanging open} . . . what an idea! Giving dice is perfect. Not only will it not break the bank, but it secretly pushes a little summer math. Student gift - done and done :) Thank you much!!!!

I love your dice games. I grabbed them a couple days ago. But then I had a question about them and couldn't remember who made them. You might want to add your name in small print somewhere on your work so others know who to contact for more of your good ideas.
Thanks!

I love this idea! I was just at the dollar store looking at the dice and wondering.... They also had decks of cards. Now to think about games to go with the cards and combine with the dice!!!
