If you recall from my robot treat post, schools in our area don’t allow parents to bring in homemade goodies for kids on their birthdays. For most parents, this should be a relief or a free pass to go to the store and pick-up the bakery cupcakes without feeling an iota of guilt about not being Betty Crocker.
Unfortunately, I am not most parents. The store-bought treats I have taken in the past haven’t done much to spark my imagination, until I came up the robot birthday school treats. I’ve been wracking my brain since then to think of something unexpected to do for my daughters’ birthday treats this week. This is what I came up with.
I bought doughnuts from the grocery store (which may have been day old to save me a boat load of money. Hey! Class sizes are huge these days!), and packages of Twinkies and placed them in clear plastic treat bags so that they would make a 1-0.
I designed this topper to say “Donut you want to help Kira celebrate her Terrific #10?” I just folded the topper over the end of the plastic bag and stapled. We served the packages with small cups of milk.
You could easily use two twinkies or other favorite treats like zingers for a #11.
So am I the only one crazy enough to complicate store-bought class treats? Any cute fun and easy treats out there?
