Saying his goodbyes

My grandson along with his mom and step-dad are moving.  They've been so busy packing that Joey wanted to come stay with us.  We talked about making new friends and how exciting it will be to have a new house and new school.  He seemed a little apprehensive about leaving his friends and school.  So we decided to make his friends and teachers a little something.
I looked back on Pinterest and found the cute little gift that I made and gave out on Valentines day to a few of my friends.  He loved the idea so we bought enough Starburst to make those for his classmates.
He did all the work too (well just about all of it).  I printed out the tags and he filled in the names.  All of the names,  from memory, too.  He put 12 Starburst into each jewelry bag but couldn't quite get it to lie flat so I helped him with that.  Then I folded the tags and he stapled them on the bag....  So cute...  Such great work for a 1st grader!  He was so proud of himself too.

I have a cricut machine so I added each teacher's initial to a double sided glass to make a cute gift.  He wanted to add candy to make the cup extra sweet!

I hope he had a good last day Friday and will have a great first day tomorrow.
