The sacks ringed the the treat boxes, with note for the teachers explaining it all.~
Pick out a therapy sack in the fabric and scent of your choice. Choose the lavender scent to help you RELAX, or pick a eucalyptus one to help REFRESH your senses. Then, INDULGE yourself and grab a box of sweet treats to take home and enjoy all weekend.
Earlier in the week, the toddlers each picked their favorite paint colors and put their hand prints on a box. And the boxes were filled the cookies, brownies, bars, etc that many of the toddler parents volunteered to bake and bring in.
The instructions tags were tied onto a corner of the wheat sacks. Here's what the tags said, taken from Brassy Apple because Meg's poem was perfect and why mess with a good thing! And yes, don't worry, I asked for permission first. ;)
This little sack filled with wheat,
Is such a comfort that can’t be beat.
Microwave for 1 to 2 minutes on HIGH
and kiss those aches and pains goodbye.
Apply it to the troubled spot,
The heat will ease the pain a lot.
Or warm those little toes, so cold.
You'll find this nice to have and hold.
Or freeze it for a little while,
And fix that boo-boo up in style.
Instead of a compress made of ice,
Use this sack of wheat that feels so nice!
(I'm scented with LAVENDER to help you RELAX)
or the last line said --
(I'm scented with EUCALYPTUS to help REFRESH your sense.)
A few of the parents had bought their contribution, so we kept those out on a smaller adjacent table for the teachers to grab a bite of something right then or pop in and out throughout the morning. I didn't get a pic of that.
Sorry the pics aren't that great. I must have been using the wrong setting on my camera or perhaps it was the lighting in the room.
