A little something to let our primary class know we are thinking of them. These are also great for kids to give to friends to let them know they miss them. You can drop them off at their house and get a face to face conversation for a few minutes, just like the good old days.
Doing acts of kindness like this is what keeps us going in our house. We feel so much better when we are still connecting with people outside of our house. Hope this inspires you to do something nice for the important people in your life too.
I miss my friends. I miss our girls night out, I miss the long chats sitting on the couch catching up while the kids play and I miss never hesitating to give a hug or inviting someone in. I wanted to do something to let them know that I’m thinking of them, and missing them, and hopefully give them a little something that will allow them to find some quiet time to themselves to grow during these challenging times.
Inside the goodie bags: a succulent, candle (that smells like clean laundry so they can pretend that it’s all done and they are all caught up 😊), matches, chocolate, the book The Power of Stillness (cannot recommend this book enough. LOVE it), and then of course a little card.
I wrapped the small box of matches because look how much cuter it is. 🤗 If you do that, just don’t forget to not wrap it all the way around so you can still strike the match. Also, make sure you have the paper back a little ways from the scratch pad for extra safety.
Then it’s just a matter putting it all together. I can’t get enough of using the tiny clothes pins to hang your card (or in this case, cards). Why are things just so much cuter when they are so tiny?!
I hope this little goodie bag helps some friends feel extra loved and special because they sure are! I can’t wait to get together soon and discuss the book, such a good read!
I hope everyone is getting through these times reprioritizing and appreciating all that we do have. I hope doing a little something special for some friends brings you as much relief and joy as it did for me!
