My stuff arrived from Spectrum Nasco!
Each October I do a mass order to cover Hallowe’en and Chloë’s birthday goodie bags.
This year for our Hallowe’en treats I went with the eyeglasses-fake-nose disguise, punching balloons, temporary tattoos, bracelets, pick-up sticks and I can’t remember what else.
I like going this way because you can buy in bulk (it’s way cheaper), the kids can choose what items they think their friends will like and it’s something a bit different.
Okay, okay – truth is I ate all of the pre-purchased Hallowe’en candy and buying more will only result in further expansion of my rear end.
Toys are safer.
I was trying to come up with a neat way to package it all up, when I came across these treat toppers:
|Thirty Handmade Days|
She offers a free printable if you click over to her site.
6 toppers per page.
My treats were a little bigger after packaging so I needed to come up with something along the size of 4 joke toppers per page:
Free printable here if you want it.
I need treats for 2 classrooms, 1 Sparks Unit and 1 Brownie unit – approximately 100.
It would use way too much ink if I used my home computer, so I sent them off to be printed.
Spent an hour or so packaging it all up;
And divvying it up to where each has to go;
(I checked – divvying is an actual word)
Sure, I’m a bit early but this is just the tip of the iceberg.
Hubby has a birthday coming up and I’m hosting a Hallowe’en party for him, plus treats for the neighbourhood trick-or-treaters, followed up by Chloë’s birthday.
I gotta get a head start just to stay in the game this month!
