A Fun Summer Countdown for STAFF


The last ten days of school, I always do a fun "Mystery Balloon Summer Countdown" with my students. So when thinking up gifts for my teaching staff, I thought, why not do a fun 10-day summer countdown for them too?

So I did! I surprised them with a gift every day for the last ten days of school! 

Here are the ten gifts, all less than $2 each (most less than $1), so you can do a 10-day summer countdown with your staff too!

Every day during the last ten days of school, you will give your staff one of the gifts. Here are some suggestions of how I presented the gifts each day to my staff.

Day 1 - Xtra Gum

Day 2 - Lifesavers


Day 3 - Rolos


Day 4 - Tea


Day 5 - Donuts


Day 6 - Mints


Day 7 - Clips of some sort. I found these at Walmart.


Day 8 - 100 Grand Candybar

Day 9 - Candles


Day 10 (Last Day of School) - Lotion


My aides really loved having a surprise waiting for them each day and it costed me just around $10 for each aide. Grab the labels for FREE here and do a fun summer countdown with your staff!

Even if you're not doing an end of year summer countdown, SAVE these gift tags for later! They're  perfect for individual gift giving too any time of the year!

Pin it to save it here!

 

Happy Summer Countdown! Hang in there...the end is near!

Mystery Balloon Fun Summer Countdown


I can see summer break in my near future! Our 10-day summer countdown begins tomorrow! When does yours begin? 

Our mystery balloon summer countdown is an all time classroom favorite for counting down the days to summer break! 

I place a slip of paper in each balloon prior to blowing it up. Each slip of paper has a fun treat on it. Each morning a student pops a balloon to reveal the daily treat! 

Treats range from no cost activities such as go barefoot in class for the day, sit wherever you want for the day, or write in pen today....to activities that may cost a little money like a watermelon or popcorn party! 

Try it in your classroom! Grab the treat/activity slips for FREE here

Summer Countdown Survival Kits for Staff


Sometimes those long waits for winter, spring, and summer break can seem like an eternity! Sometimes it feels like you're barely going to make it and you go into survival mode!

A survival kit might be just what the doctor ordered! These survival kits make adorable gifts for staff members, and gives them a little something to look forward to, to make those long days not feel so long!


You'll need some plastic containers. The ones pictured above are Sterlite Brand and were purchased from Family Dollar for 99 cents each. Another option is to use paper sacks or party favor bags. This is a cheaper option if you're making a lot or can't find the right containers.

This is what's inside. You'll need:
  • Chocolate
  • Notepad
  • Hand Sanitizer (trial size)
  • Lotion (trial size)
  • Mini Kleenex
  • Energy Bar
  • Jolly Ranchers
  • Laffy Taffy
  • Lifesavers
  • Chapstick

Print the free labels and attach to your containers or sacks/bags. I used double sided scotch tape to affix my labels to the underneath inside of the lid for a more professional look. The labels are available for spring break and summer break and are sized to fit the containers shown. Get your labels here.

I also added colored crinkle shredded paper to each container in the bottom.
