Last Day of School Basket

I know most of your kids have been out of school for a while, but mine just got out for Summer on Friday.
I like to have something fun waiting for them when they get home.
This year I packed a basket with treats and toys.

We spend almost everyday in the pool so a lot of the things relate to water.
And of course I had to include some of their favorite treats.

This is how they found the basket.

Zach read the card then they dug right into the goodies.
I think the squirt guns and silly string were the first things they played with.

Now that they’re out of school we can start checking things off our Summer Fun List.
I’ll have a post on that later.

Don’t forget to link your projects to the Home Decor and Organizing Link Party every Wednesday.
I’m excited to see what you’ve been working on this week.

    You’re such a good mom! I want to remember this for when Malea starts school. 🙂

    I love this! I really want to do this once my little one starts school (though that won’t be for a few years)!

    That is just such a fun idea! I’m sure your kids loved it and I love that it helped build the anticipation of summer. Think I’ll have to steal this idea next year!

    Super cute idea!

    We do so much for teachers and the classrooms to celebrate the end of the school year, but giving your own children a celebration basket as well is such a great idea. 🙂

    Cute! I give my kids Last Day of School Gifts, too – new beach towels, super soakers, swim goggles – all the summer essentials!
