Gift's For Others ... We Love You to Pieces

A few weeks back was the end of the volunteer time for the kids youth group, most groups don't go through the summer.  My women's group goes all year round, so the kids group is very small and doesn't have all the volunteer's like it does during the other time of year.  

I wanted to do something special for those men and women that come in each Wednesday and play and teach the kids (believe me it's not an easy thing handling 30+ kids).  I had some Reese's Pieces that I had left over from a baking project.  So I went on a search to find a thank you gift that had "piece's" in it to tie it in together.  I found this FREE printable on Mrs. Lirette's Learning Detectives.  Her free printable went perfect with the little bag of Reese'sPieces that I put together.

What You Need:
Reese's Pieces (I buy in bulk section at Winco)
Small Clear Plastic Bags (50pk $1 at Dollar Tree)
White Cardstock Paper
Inkjet Printer
Download her FREE Printable
Stapler or whole punch w/ Ribbon (or twine like I did)

Fill small bags with Reese's Pieces, I evenly separated out with the number of bags I was doing.  She had it set up with four per page, with was perfect!  I printed on cardstock and then took my paper trimmer to trim the four cards.  I took a whole punch and punched two holes and ran some twine through to tie the bags.  I didn't have any ribbon that would match so twine it was.  You should have seen the faces of the volunteers, it was wonderful to brighten their day.  This was such a simple gift but it had so much meaning and a big thanks to those wonderful people that put up with our kids on a Wednesday night when you know they are cranky and not wanting to hang out and do studies at 7p to 8p at night.

I hope you make this for someone special!
Brighten someone's day!
