My daughter just finished her first year of preschool and I wanted to get a little reward for her classmates. I had no idea, initially, what would be a good gift for a four-year-old group, but then I remembered these fun little snack bags made by the lovely Cassie, which I made once before.

I sewed up a a few days, stuffed them with a soaker ball, a set of sunglasses and a note from my daughter and us thanking the kids for an awesome first year of school. It included our phone number and e-mail address so that maybe they can get together over the summer.

It was pretty inexpensive. I had the fabric and iron-on vinyl for the snack bags and I picked up the other items at the dollar section at Target (my favorite store). It was simple,  but it gave me the opportunity to say “thanks” and hand out our information to the other parents.


You could fill yours with any number of treats from fresh baked cookies to homemade Play-Doh. Plus, the kids can keep the bag and use it for lunch snack next year.

Stay tuned for my gifts to the teachers.

What a nice mother you are. And a cool gift at that. Can I have those sunglasses?
