Did your Pre-K students spend the last week studying the color orange or oranges? Do you want to give them a little goodie to commemorate the end of the lesson plan? If so, you may want to kick around the idea of picking up one of the following items:
Pop-Out Fruit Tote Bags are one item to consider utilizing. They are designed to fold up into the shape of an orange segment. You could feasibly fill the bags with fresh oranges and other items. Oftentimes, you can purchase two dozen of the specialty bags for around $28 through craft stores and party supply shops.
Orange colored flying discs are another item to think about investing in. On average, 72 small discs will lighten your pockets by about $16. If you do decide to go that route, you may want to consider customizing the discs with an orange sticker. You can typically purchase sticker paper and orange clipart through such places as office supply and craft stores.
Speaking of stickers, you may want to think about giving each of the kids an orange scented one. The stickers come in assorted designs and are sold at various price points. Personally, I prefer the cartoonish looking, scratch-n-sniff ones available through such retailers as Everything Smells. I like them because are cute, odorous and inexpensive. In most instances, 100 stickers will cost you less than $4.
Orange Buttermints are additional items to consider purchasing. They are inexpensive too. You can generally purchase a 120 piece case of the individually wrapped candies for less than $7 through wholesalers or party related retailers. You could place a few of the mints inside individual, snack size bags and give one to each child.
Scented Bubble Bottles
If you are feeling mildly crafty, you may want to make each child a bottle of orange scented bubbles. In order to make them, you’ll need to invest in a case of mini orange bubble bottles and a container of essential oil. The bubble bottles tend to retail for $7 a case through discount stores and party retailers. Each case should yield enough goodies for a large Pre-K class (48 students). A bottle of orange essential oil is likely to cost you $4 through aromatherapy related retailers. When you have your supplies on hand, simply add a miniscule drop of oil to each bottle. That’s all that there is to it.
Lastly, you may want to give the kids orange bouncing balls. They could use the balls to play outside with their family and friends. The balls are usually available for purchase through toy, discount and department stores. Sometimes, you can purchase them through party supply shops as well. Two dozen balls are likely to cost you $12.
