Here's what I did last year:
I bought some red plastic cups at Walmart. I think they were like 4 for a dollar. I bought some random things that I put in the cups. I included some fun pencils, erasers, 3 dice,
On the cups, I put this cute little poem that I found online. I printed the poems on large labels and attached them to the cups. I tried to make it so the kids could wash their cups but it just wasn't working for me. After I finished with the inside stuff and the label, I wrapped the cup in blue cellophane and tied it at the top. With the gift, I included some BUMP game boards and some fun summer activities.
I created a label for this year with a poem that I wrote for the end of the year. I loved the one that I found online last year but it was a bit too long for the labels. To use these labels, download a copy and print on Avery 4"x 2" shipping labels.

Today, I went to Target and found some beach balls that were 97 cents so I got a supply for my class. I plan on giving to them on the last day of school and letting all the kids sign each other's beach balls. If you have time and help. you could also have them do hand prints on the beach balls. So fun and a great summer present! I plan on attaching this card with the beach balls.
This is what I am planning this year but I may change my mind depending on what you share. I can't wait to see your gift ideas!
I would also love to see what you do if you make gifts for your students' parents at the end of the year.
