positive pencil pretzels

excuse me a sec while i whine.

WAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
SUMMER"S OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

sigh.
ok. guess i'm done whining and have to face the fact that school starts in 2 days.

no more sleeping in.
no more homework-less nights.
no more live without a care in the world cuz i don't have to work days.

what's a summer lovin' girl to do then?

hey think i'll make some school treats to brighten up the day.
cuz every student needs school supplies,
here's what you need to start making these.
ok cross those school supplies off the list and add some ghiardelli large chocolate chips,
yellow and pink candy melts, 
green cookie icing, 
black food marker and parchment paper.

now on to the how to:




now to personalize them,
and not with just a "no.2" either.

this time we are gonna make them special to help your kid/student/teacher/whoever get some motivation for a successful school year.


you could also write the kids' name on them, or their school, or anything else really.

then pack 'em up, with a really cool tag like this one, and send them off with well wishes of success.
just think what all the kids in an entire class would say if they got this!
cuz i'm sure any kid can't wait to hear when their teacher says, "ok kids, time to get your pencils out!"

  2. After I got over my shock of anyone actually complaining cuz summer is over, I went on.....and love these! Easy peasy chili beansies!! I really want to do these for my granddaughter...she's going into 8th grade and would love 'em!! As for the summer thing....I see your point, but I do live in AZ, where no one complains of summer being over!!!! So how about a little school cheer for you? Sis boom bah, rah, rah, rah, BBFF! BBFF! Rah, rah, rah!!!!!! (here's where I shake my pom poms). Dona

    1. well to be honest Dona i only love summer cuz i'm off of work-it's definitely not due to the heat! lol we always travel up north to get away from the heat and enjoy cool summers elsewhere :) nothing better than a school cheer from my BBFF as i need a lot of it to get myself motivated to go back! :>O

  3. These are just wonderful! Mmmmm I can just taste them too! But you better be careful, if it gets out to the kids that the school nurse has pencils to give out to "sick kids" the line of "tummy aches" will be wrapped around the building!

    1. LOL! fortunately these are for the other school nurses i know and NOT for the kids-gosh the first year i was a school nurse i gave out cool bandaids and stickers and that was the end of the line wrapped around the building-whew! what a close call J! hehe ;)
