the girls raced into summer with squeals of delight and much much excitement. it's been a terrific year at a terrific school with so many inspiring and motivated people, and they have blossomed so very much. now that school has been out for a week or so, we've been enjoying days with less structure, even more reading time, crafting indoors and out, cartwheels and croquet, late night dinners on the deck, and even later night bedtimes (and cocktails for the adults).
ahhh, summer. i don't think i've ever loved you more.
in keeping with our tradition of putting together special treats for the girls' specials teachers, the girls and i once again made special somethings for all the special folks who have made science lab, music, art, library, physical education, and computer classes so much fun for the kids. these are simple to assemble and great to have on hand throughout the summer - in fact, we're making a few more tomorrow for their teachers + receptionist at the dance studio, and they'll be nice to pop into the neighbor's mailboxes over the summer months, as well.
to make, you need a variety of delicious teas, mason jars with rings + lids, scissors and the two printables (below). cut the sun tea directions into squares about the same shape + size of the tea bags, then put the instructions along with some tea bags inside each jar. use one of the jar lids to trace circles for the lid cover and cut them out. place a lid cover on top of a lid, set it inside the ring and screw onto the jar. and repeat. easy peasy happy summer!
click the printables below + print out onto heavy weight paper, then get to making. enjoy! xoxo
happy summer, friends. make it special. xoxo
