Last Week of School - Wednesday

Hooray!  The favors for the last day of school are done!  Each of the grandkids made 24 which gives them 3 or 4 extras (for the teacher, principal, bus driver or yard duty teacher).  Here's a picture of all the Candy Airplanes...and the grandkids.

This is a fun project, but if you are doing it with 2 or more young children you will need lots of patience.  Putting labels and stickers on everything was fun for them.  None of the grandkids wanted help with the stickers.  They even enjoyed threading the rubber bands through the Life Savers.  The part they did not enjoy was getting the gum through the rubber band loops.  I heard many signs and lots of frustrated little voices asking 'Grandma, can you please help me with this?'  After awhile I would let them thread the rubber bands, then hand it to me, I would put the gum in, then they would put the candy roll in.  We had a little assembly line going.  It worked for us.

And the final cost for everything was only $36.00 for 72 favors (fifty cents each!).  The grandkids had to make 1 extra Candy Airplane for themselves - which they promptly took apart and ate!

Now, I've got to get back to work.  Not only is the laundry calling my name, but I've got over 50 decal listings to put up on eBay, several fused glass decal themes to finish before the batch can be sent to the printers, floors to mop, bill to pay . . . the list never ends.

Until next time, Happy Crafting!
