I have an addiction to Snowmen. Lot's of them. Everywhere.
I like to share my addictions. So every year during Christmas, I do.
I just finished stuffing 70 Ziploc baggies with mini marshmallows and Tootsie Rolls, attaching a poem and stickers.
Every year a put together these bags for my students, as a last day before break snack/sugar rush/get hyper in someone else's class gift. *snicker*
I usually don't have a problem putting these together. The way it goes is in half the baggies I put mini marshmallows, and in the other half I put Cocoa Puffs. I purchase the pretty holiday Ziploc baggies and I attach a poem which reads:
Now here's the scoop!
All you get for Christmas is some Snowman (Reindeer) Poop!"
I started using Cocoa Puffs for reindeer poop when I realized that not every kid liked marshmallows. You would've thought that would have been my first indication given my chocoholic-ness, but I didn't realize this until after the first year. So now I am considerate of those chocoholics who would rather the puffs than the mallows.
This year's Poop bags, not so easy.
Mini marshmallows? Check. Easy to find. :)
Christmas baggies? Nope. Not a one.
Cocoa Puffs? No Cocoa Puffs. What the hell??? I couldn't get my hands on anything that resembled Cocoa Puffs. Not even the generic Malt-O-Meal puffs.
Now shit is getting real. Now I am getting a case of the ass. So I start thinking how to make this work? I am not giving up dammit!
So I did what every great mother and teacher does. What you ask? Improvisation
I gotta say it was a success!
Baggies were just plain baggies. Then I got my hands on holiday stickers and decorated them up with stickers.
For Reindeer poop I used the next best thing: Tootsie Rolls.
Yea, I did it. And it worked. I done good. ;)
Now let's see what the jury says. They better like it. Or else!
Actually, it doesn't matter. They eat the sugar, toss the bags and chuckle at the poem. The whole thing lasts like 10 minutes, which is a long time given the audience. They have the attention span of a gnat. But I digress....
I am just happy everyone is getting poop tomorrow.
Happy Friday tomorrow!
