1. Coffee Filter Lollipop Ghosts
If you’re still scratching your head over what treats to send to school, wrap some lollipops in coffee filters, doodle a face with a black Sharpie and you’re good to go. You can even add a little custom to/from tag to the ribbon.
2. Monster Pencils
Halloween treats don’t have to be full of sugar. These cute little monster pencils make a great school gift for both teachers and students – plus your kids will have a blast making them. The ladies at 36 Avenue will show you how and offer free printable tags to finish them off.
3. The Candy Hand
Give your kids or your co-workers a hand – a candy hand, that is. Grab some gloves, a ribbon and a mishmash of candy and stuff, stuff, stuff. You can even add a cute little gift tag or one of our printable pocket cards which you can find here and another set here or here attached to the top to really make this stand out.
