It's FINALS WEEK here in the Weber abode, and normally my kids would be at school focused on wrapping up all of their classes with their end of the semester exams...but with COVID still running rampant here in SoCal, all three of my kids are taking their tests from home.
Normally the PTO at their school has a fundraiser where parents can purchase "Finals Survival Kits" for their students to have some snacks while they are testing.
Since there's no school, there are no "Survival Kits", and having a senior this year (#worstyearevertobeasenior) I'm doing my darndest to make her last year as special and meaningful as it can be, so I decided to make my own survival kit not only for her but all three of my kids!
Honestly, it wasn't hard at all...and was actually kind of fun!
The toughest part was creating the tags, but I already did that for you, so you've got it "made in the shade" to make your own!!
Let me walk you through what you need and how to do it!
- A Bag (or if you are mailing it to a college student, you'll want a sturdy box)
- Snacks/Treats/Goodies (I got most of mine at the dollar store so this won't break the bank!)
Here are some of the treats that coordinate with the tags: (Note: you don't need to buy ALL of them... I had about 10 -12 items in my bags, and that was plenty!)
A Bag of Chips
A Pack of Gum
Any Type of Nuts
Granola Bar or Candy Bar
Apple Juice, an Apple or any Apple Flavored Snack
Nacho Chips (ex. Doritos, Takis)
An Orange or any Orange Flavored Treat
Tootsie Rolls or Fruit Roll-Up
Popcorn or a Soda Pop
Crunch Candy Bar
Once you have your treats, print out the tags, cut them, and affix them with tape to the coordinating tag! SO EASY!!
Wait 'til you see the smile on your kids' faces when they know you were thinking of them!! They are going to wish it was finals week EVERY WEEK (okay, probably not, but they will totally dig the treats!)
Are there any things the kids once did at school that you are now doing for them so they don't miss school as much?? I'd love to hear!!
Until next time, cheers to us all rocking this pandemic homeschooling gig, and cheers to you!🥂
