Last night we headed to the dollar store and picked up a great little lunch box style box and a whole lot of goodies. We put the whole thing together for about $12.
Here's a run down of what we got:
- hand sanitizer
- lip balm
- Advil (heehee)
- pony holders
- breath mints
- And most importantly some treats - Ferrero Rocher & Turtles
I don't know about you, but I would love a gift like this! Have your kids started back to school yet? Did you make up a little something for their teacher? I think teaching is one of the most undervalued professions out there, and teachers definitely don't get the recognition they deserve. This is just my small way of saying, "Thanks for all you do. We really appreciate it!" Happy New School Year!

Her teacher LOVED the survival kit! She said she was the only teacher who even received a gift on the first day, and all the other teachers were jealous. So I'd say this is a perfect 1st day of school gift!
