Yep, it’s almost that time…summer time, no school, moving across the country. Oh, wait, that last one is just us. Anyway, you know I won’t let the kids go to school on the last day without some gift for their teachers. We gave these S’Mores Buckets last year, as well, and I think they’re the perfect way to say, “Enjoy your summer!”
They take only minutes to assemble…if you’d like, you could wrap the ingredients in some patterned paper, bakers’ twine, or your favorite gift wrap, but the kids were making these, so we kept it simple. We bought the buckets and roasting sticks at the dollar store, then picked up marshmallows, graham squares, and chocolate bars at the grocery store. In each bucket, we put a bag of marshmallows, 3 packs of graham squares, and 4 chocolate bars, along with two roasting sticks. In all, about $5 per bucket, including the bucket.
We downloaded some summer subway art from Two Yellow Birds and resized it to print six to a page. After cutting each out and matting on cardstock, we wrote a thank you on the back and used curling ribbon to attach the tags to the bucket.
Like I said, it took about 10 minutes to assemble five of these. Then we headed outside to eat the leftover bucket ingredients! Waste not, want not and all that.
