Favorite Pins Friday- Back to School Ideas for Gifts

Hi there!

I don't know about you, but I have been pinning back to school ideas like crazy.  I probably already had a ton of back to school ideas pinned, but there's always something new popping up!

I wanted to share a few of the new ones I've seen (new to me anyway)!

(You can find the original link to each of these by clicking the picture of what I pinned!)

I was a guest blogger over at Christy's blog Teaching Tales Along the Yellow Brick Road and I blogged about how I'd use this pin:

Check out the post at Christy's blog by clicking the link above the picture to see how I'd do this!

The next ones were completely new to me!  I had no idea that you could buy push pop containers to fill!  You can find them at Amazon!
Pencil Push Up Pops
These are pencils made from cake!!  I looked at the directions because I was curious of what it was and it looks really easy!  I can't see myself making one for each student in my class (time factor) but I think it would be adorable to have for my personal kids when they got home from school on the first day!

I thought these were cute!  They are filled with York Peppermint pieces!  I think I might put something else on the label that says Edible School Glue but I haven't gotten that far with my thoughts since so many ideas are rolling around in my head- something about eating paste maybe... ;O)

I definitely love this idea from Teri at A Cupcake for the Teacher.  She has the printable on her blog if you want to head there to check that out!

I think the pretzels are cute and super simple, plus she has the tags on her website that you can print right off!!

Here's another one that looks pretty simple!  I searched high and low to find the original source, and this is as close as I could get (by clicking on the picture)

I was hoping if I could find it there would be a free printable, but no such luck.  Maybe you can check out the link and tell me how to get to the site?  It looks like a Crystal Light container with Andes Mints inside!  Simple enough!

Ok, so there are just a few of the pins that I came across this week!  Hopefully this next week I will be able to get myself focused and commit to what I really want to do...right now, there's lots of ideas just floating around and I need to just take the plunge and commit!  

Maybe that's kinda the downside of Pinterest!  There's always one more idea I might want to try instead!  ;O)

Be sure to check back at Cara's blog The First Grade Parade for more pins from the week!

Have a great weekend!  Oh, and make sure you've entered our big clipart giveaway!!

  5. I love all of these ideas. Especially the pencil push up pops. I have never seen that before!

    I did find the original site for the "mint" to be idea and you were right, she used a crystal light container. :) Her post includes a printable for the mint label and some other cute labels too, and a 'how to' about how she made the labels.

  6. I can not believe you said the cake push pops might not be that hard to make - they look super hard and I only have two kiddos at home to make them for. Have a great time at the blogger meet up tomorrow - I will send you a picture of me and some comments I would make so I can feel like I am part of it :)

  7. Cute pins - I am always looking for ideas to welcome kids to my class. Thanks for sharing.


  8. I love the owl set I bought from Pink Cat Studio :)

  14. Well, these ideas are really very much superb and looking very much beautiful and attractive as well. Handmade gifts are always found better and more beautiful than any other traditional kind of gift because these come with our effort and associated love and affection. The same case is here as well with these gifts and these are looking amazing.

  15. We would further be able to transform every possible fact as given here and for the future these will lay down a good foundation. personal statement writer
