Did your kindergarten students recently complete a unit on ice cream? Perhaps you just want to reward them with something special at the end of the year. Either way, I happen to know of several items that you may find favor with. Here they are:
Novelty Bubble Bottles
If you ask me, Ice Cream Bubbles are one of the cutest rewards to give the kids. The bottles are designed to look like soft swirl ice cream sitting on top of cake cones. The inside of each bottle contains a food scented bubble mixture and a built-in wand. You can typically purchase a case of the bottles through U.S. Toy for around $30.
Scented ice cream stickers would make cool rewards as well. They generally look like little scoops of hard ice cream on top of sugar cones. In addition, each one typically smells like a flavor of ice cream (i.e. chocolate, mint and vanilla). The stickers are often sold through stationary shops, school supply stores and specialty retailers. Prices vary but tend to be reasonable.
Ice Cream Pens are another item that you may want to think about purchasing. Like the name suggests, the pens are designed to look like soft serve ice cream on top of sugar cones. The tops of the pens come in assorted colors. However, the bottom portion of the pen only comes in a light brown color. After all, it is supposed to represent a sugar cone. You can typically purchase them through party orientated businesses like Oriental Trading. In most instances, a dozen pens are apt to lighten your checkbook by about $20.
Novelty Water Shooters
As long as you have older children on your classroom’s roster, you may want to purchase Ice Cream Water Shooters instead. They are plastic squirt guns fashioned in the shape of soft serve ice cream cones. The push button trigger is located on the body of the cone and is designed to be the same color as the ice cream top. On average, you can purchase a package of the novelty shooters through toy stores and discount retailers for less than $8.
Finally, you could always opt to purchase Picassa Ice Cream Cone Cups. They are made with plastic materials and tend to come outfitted with a funky looking straw. Personally, I like them because they also tend to come with a screw-on lid. Thus, the kids are less apt to create a mess with them. Furthermore, the cups are often sold through discount and toy stores for less than $3 a package.
