EOY Awards using candy bar wrappers!



So I decided to whip up something a little different for my little nuggets. I threw them a major bash which was most of their EOY gift from me. With the help of some fabulous room moms the kids had a fabulous EOY peace party....that is a whole other post. 






I'm all about quick, cheap, & easy with 2 days left. Above gives you the directions on how to wrap the candy bars. You can use a glue stick or Scotch tape, either one looks great. I simply filled out the awards, signed them & wrapped them in 30 minutes. After our peace shindig I completely wore myself out & am now sick....BOO! I need quick, cheap & easy.

Here is a sneak peek of 24 out of over 50 awards to choose from. I just know my students are going to LOVE it!

Aren't they precious??? They are on sale at my TPT shop. Click on any pic above or HERE to grab your own set. 

OK.....I JUST HAD TO POST SOME OF OUR PEACE PARTY PICS...I JUST CAN'T STAND IT. I AM SO UNBELIEVABLY EXCITED OVER HOW FUN OUR DAY WAS. HERE ARE JUST A FEW PICS FROM OUR DAY...STAY TUNED FOR MORE! 







 If you read this far....you're in luck. The first five to post their favorite pic from our peace party with get the EOY Awards for FREE!

  3. I'm loving the sidewalk chalk 1st grader pic. I think I'll add that to my To Do list this week so it can make it in their memory book.

  12. I love that piece sign! I just told my co-teacher about it because she loves hippie stuff ;) I like the idea of incorporating candy bars and awards! I have my awards printed out already, but next year I might just have to add in some chocolate! :)

  15. Quick and cute - perfect combination! I really like the 1st grade chalk sidewalk picture; I'd do it this year but have someone not going on to first grade. Maybe I'll do "welcome summer" or something else. Thanks for sharing!

    I know I'm officially stalking you via social media but ---Will you consider putting the EOY candy wrappers in certificate form? We're not allowed to pass out candy at my school.
