1 Free Printable with 3 End of Year Gift Ideas with Balls!

This time of year always seems to go on forever and yet happens in the blink of an eye. By the end of the school year the kids and I are both SO ready for the year to be over. It’s nice they want to be outside and I’m just tired of arguing with people to wake up in the morning and do homework at night. My daughter always wants a little present to bring the last day of school to hand out to her classmates. This year I decided to come up with a free ball printable that could be used for multiple gift ideas. That’s right, one printable but three great yet inexpensive gift ideas.

Most of the printables I’ve done in the past for classroom gift ideas have been very specific. This time I wanted to create a printable that you could pair with several inexpensive end of school year gift ideas. With the fun, summer beach theme of this printable it easily pairs with paddle balls, beach balls, splash/soaker balls.

Paddle Ball Gift Idea

The paddle ball gift idea was a last-minute add-on. I found some fun paddle balls at the party supply store for only 60¢ and they had fun designs on them.

Beach Ball Gift Idea

Beach balls are in stock everywhere now. I found them for 99¢ and $1 at several stores.

Splash/Soaker Balls Gift Idea

Splash/soaker balls are also in stock everywhere you go. The two packs I used were found at my local dollar store but I also found a giant bag of 24 at my party store for only $9.99 that you could easily place in baggies.

End of School Year Ice Pop Gift Idea with Cute Printable

End of School Year Ice Pop Gift Idea and Cute Printable

 

 

With multiple kids in elementary school it would be so easy to tell them that they are all going to be giving out the same end of school year gift to their classmates but my creative juices won’t allow me to do that. I like coming up with and creating fun little ways to adorn gifts. I didn’t do it with my older kids when they were little but back then I was allowed to bake treats or at least buy them for the class. Since that is no longer an option in our district I like to fancy up the gifts with a cute little note or card. I think it makes what could be a dull gift to a child into something with more personality and appeal. I think that this end of school year ice pop gift idea with cute printable is just one fun way to get small children excited and ready to make something fun in the kitchen this summer.

I love getting into the kitchen with my kids and making ice pops during the summer is such a fun and easy way to get creative, spend time together and end it all with a tasty treat! My daughter is finishing up kindergarten and she will be giving these out to her friends. I think they are fun and different from the standard chalk, bubbles and pencils that are given out. I found these ice pop molds at Walmart and they were only 88¢ each. That’s a pretty inexpensive gift for each child.

Print out the free printable and then cut them out and use tape or staples to attach the little cards to the ice pop molds. Just click on the picture below to print out the printable.

End of School Year Water Balloon Gift Idea With Printable

This is a fun idea for an End of School Year Gift for kids in your child's class. The fun comicbook theme is a fun design. #free #printable

 

 

I can’t believe it’s the end of the school year already but at the same time I am so happy that it’s here. Maybe I’m more excited about this year since I work at one of the schools in my district this year. So just like the kids I am excited about more time to do what I want and less time doing work. Every year though I do like to come up with little gifts for my kids to hand out to their classmates. It seems though that all you ever see for this online is ideas for bubbles or chalk. I wanted to do something different this year and I have. In fact, I came up with three different ideas and will be sharing each of them with you in coming days. Today though I will be sharing an end of school year water balloon idea with printable. This is a fun idea for an End of School Year Gift for kids in your child's class. The fun comicbook theme is a fun design. #free #printable

It’s pretty safe to say that I am a nerdy, geeky girl. I own that about me and am proud of it and flaunt it. In fact one of my recent posts gave me the idea for this printable. I am a huge Marvel fan and love comic books. I’m that parent that encourages her children to read them and graphic novels. So one day it just came to me that water balloons are such a great summertime thing plus they get the kids outside and playing but since you the play involves throwing stuff at each other it made me think of comic books. Of course that meant that I had to design a printable to use to hand them out that looked like comic book cells. 

To make these fun little gifts with your kids for their classmates all you need to do is download the free printable and print it out. Click on any of the pictures to download the printable.

The fun comicbook theme is a fun design. #free #printable Once the printables are printed and cutout all you need to fill is fill snack size baggies with water balloons and spouts. (I found two packs at Walmart. Each one had 50 balloons and a spout and was only 97¢ for the two. That makes this a really affordable gift idea.) Then fold the printables in half lengthwise and place the sealed top of the baggies in between the front and the back of the printable and staple. That’s it! Your kids now have a fun gift for their friends in class.

At less than 75¢ a child this works out to be an affordable gift that will get kids outside to play.

 

 


End of School Year Printable Bookmarks

Free Printable: End of School Year Bookmarks

The end of the school year is swiftly approaching for us here. We have two more weeks since we had so many snow days this past winter but I know some schools are finishing up this week, next week and some even further into June than our district. On the last day of school is when the kids give out their teacher gifts and some kids give the rest of their classmates something small as well. Before it may have been some candy or a parent may have brought in cupcakes, cookies or popsicles but now we are no longer able to bring in food treats in our district and I’m sure with all of the allergies many school districts across the country have the same policy. So this year for my first and fourth graders I decided to get a little creative and make bookmarks for the kids. Many public libraries have reading programs and the one in our town is quite popular so I figured this would be a fun way to tell their friends goodbye for the summer but with something useful, cute and very inexpensive.

I designed four different bookmarks so there is variety and I put them all into one pdf so you can print all four on one piece of paper. Then all you need to do is print them out on card stock or another heavy paper and cut them out. Your child can sign the backs of them too with a little note to make it even more special and then it’s all ready to go. You can take this a step further though and attach each one to a book so that each child has a new book to take home and read. You can always find inexpensive books at the dollar store, book resale shops, or your local library because they often sell used books for $1 or less. I’ve even found them on clearance at Target or Scholastic usually has $1 books in the school flyers.

I really like this whole idea because it promotes expanding a child’s mind and you just can’t go wrong with that as an end of year gift.
