S'more People Like You!

Happy Nurses Week!
And Happy Teacher Appreciation Week (wondering if it's only our school or is everyone else doing this too?).
And Happy May Day, Cinco De Mayo, Children's/Boy's Day, Last Day of School, Graduation Day and Mother's Day!

When did the first few weeks of May become so congested with celebrations?

It's been crazy over here but one little time saver I had up my sleeve was to use the same cute creative idea for both teachers AND nurses. Over at domesticatedlady.com I found the cutest idea for a s'more treat that says "we need S'MORE teachers like you".You can go here for the free printable. Another helpful blogger at gluesticksandtape.com provided a two-up on a page printable here, and several different other versions based on the original at Domesticated Lady's. I used the two-up version to be frugal, and regular printer paper because that's all I had and it turned out ok.

For the second batch, I changed the wording to say nurses instead of teachers. You can right click and copy the jpeg here and paste two of them into a word document to make your own.

Please feel free to borrow it if you need to. Nurses Week is still on for a few more days.

Just to share, I ended up using 1 box of graham crackers, 1 bag of marshmallows and 12 Hershey bars broken in half to fill two dozen 4-1/4" x 6-1/4" bags  for the nurses, and six more for the teachers. That's 2-1/2 dozen! Not a bad yield, eh? The kids loved helping, and eating the extras too!

Materials Used:

Honey Maid Graham Crackers  - $5
Best Yet Marshmallows - $2
16 Hershey Bars (Milk Chocolate or Dark) - 4 @ $3 - $12
Crystal Bags - $5
15 sheets standard copy paper

Total cost - $24 + paper, ink/printing, staples

Note that I put in 2 marshmallows because it squared off the treat nicely, size wise and visually. We test drove the microwaving portion of the instructions on the back of the label and I suggest you just use one marshmallow or you'll get the lovely lake of liquid marshmallow that we got after the 10 seconds were up. Or maybe you might like that...?
