  1. this is such an amazing idea, especially when a child moves to a new school and is scared. i have school age kids and a college student and i plan to use this for all of them this year.. thanks for the ideas

  2. in my area, local businesses “adopt” local schools and classrooms with a stuff the bus collection. people donate things to be provided to local schools.
    my sister is a 3rd grade teacher. I am adopting her class room this year and hope to send little gifts throughout the year.

    This will be a perfect way to start the school year.

  3. what a cute idea! i hope to get these made and tuck them into their backpacks on the first day of school, which is wednesday. gotta get busy!
