My daughter is in her final year of Pre-K, she’s been going since she was 3 and is so excited to finally be moving up to Kindergarten next year. There are three Pre-K classes at her school and while some of her friends are moving up with her there are some that have another year or two to go before they move up to Kindergarten. This will be a big transition for all of the kids. The ones that don’t move up will have new kids next year that they don’t know and those that are moving up will have to adjust to there being many more kindergarten classes and maybe having only 1-2 friends from Pre-K in their classroom next year. They’ll be transitioning to a full day of school instead of 2.5 hours. For these reasons I wanted her to be able to hand out a nice gift to all of her friends on the last day of school. I came up with a Sidewalk Chalk End of School Year Student Gift Idea & Free Printable.

I had seen other sidewalk chalk ideas where people banded them together with a paper printable and that was my original idea and then I realized something that’s very, very important when dealing with chalk… It’s a mess! If you don’t package them then it can break easier and it will get all over everything and even if it doesn’t break little bits will fall off or it will just rub against everything in the backpack! I’m sure all of the parents would just love to get loose, busted up chalk all over the inside of their kid’s backpack as a fun end of year surprise. So, I decided to package them in snack baggies and do a printable for the baggies.
