Did your children recently finish studying grapes or the color purple? Perhaps they just love the tasty fruit. Either way, you may want to mull over the idea of buying a handful of grape inspired rewards. That way, you can hand them out to the kids over the course of the year. With that said, here’s a quick rundown on several great gifts:
What’s purple, stinky and looks like a 6 inch rope? Why Grape Scented Twisty Stix Erasers of course! Based on my experience, they would make wonderful rewards at the end of a fruity lesson plan. You can typically purchase them through stationary, specialty and school supply stores. On average, a $21 cash or credit outlay will net you enough scented erasers for 28 students.
Keeping with the odorous objects, you could always purchase Grape Soda Scented Snifty Pens instead. The ones that I am familiar with are purple and covered with grape cluster illustrations. Each pen tends to retail for $2. If you are looking for a less expensive option, you may want to swap it out with Fruit Scented Study Buddy Pens and Highlighters. They often sell for less than $2 apiece. On retailer that traditionally sells both items is Everything Smells.
Cartoon Fruit Grape Scented Scratch-n-Sniff Stickers would make awesome rewards too. What I love the most about them is the price. Each pack of 100 stickers is apt to cost you a mere $3 and last for awhile. After all, how many stickers are you likely to hand out in a single day?
Pop-Out Tote Bags
Would you prefer to give the kids something unscented and practical? If so, I’d suggest giving Pop-Out Fruit Tote Bags some consideration. The kids could use them to carry their most cherished items to the park or library. The bags are purple and stand about 16 inches tall, not counting the cloth handles. Each one is designed to fold up into a shape that resembles a cluster of grapes. In most instances, two dozen bags will cost you $28.
Lastly, you could opt to reward the kids with grape licorice. If you do decide to go that route, I would recommend purchasing the licorice sticks in bulk. It tends to be more cost effective that way. On average, $5 will yield you enough licorice for more than 50 students. However, you may want to think about paying a little more for a box of snack bags. That way, you can place the licorice sticks inside individual snack bags for each student.
