I'm Lucky to Have You!

Dear Followers and Blog Readers,

I'm so lucky to have you! I love blogging, and I'm glad you take the time to read my rambling thinking!

Speaking of lucky (do you like my segue there?), I made these today for my students! This is a breakfast snack for the first day of school.

This is just a regular sandwich-sized Ziplock baggie filled with Lucky Charms cereal. It took me two boxes of cereal to make 26 baggies (happily, this particular cereal is on sale BOGO at Publix - sale ends today). I used one of my son's small cups to scoop it out; I wish I had taken a real measurement! Whoopsie :)

Then I cut some green paper. This isn't card stock; it's just regular weight paper. I thought it'd be easier to fold this even though I have some green card stock. 

I measured the top of the baggie, and it's 6.5" long. I cut the paper to be 6 3/4" long to cover a tiny bit over the edges. The height of the paper I cut is 4 1/4". I folded the paper over about 1/3 of the way. Check out the picture of how I folded it below.

Then I stapled the paper to attach it to the baggie. I covered the staple with the stickers I made that say, "I'm so LUCKY to have you in my class this year!" Want a copy of the stickers? Well HERE you go! This is for a 2x4 inch label, 10 to a page.


PS - I've been working really hard on my classroom, and I can't WAIT to show you pictures soon!


  1. Definitely "stealing" this idea! Great job!

    1. Thank you! I think it'll be a nice touch :)

  2. Thanks so much for sharing this!! I was looking for a label that didn't take a ton of color, and yours was perfect. :)
