Pepper has been busy planning teacher and friend gifts. Last night we put it all together and it turned out so cute! I picked up some little "tea" spoons at IKEA and she dipped them in chocolate and then crushed peppermint to make a great "stir in" for hot chocolate.
Once the chocolate melts off, you still have this cute little spoon.
In the bottom of the cup is a packet of peppermint marshmallows and a packet of Ghiradelli chocolate chips.
To finish the package she added two packets of hot chocolate and a couple of peppermint sticks.
Most of her teachers are getting bento boxes this year. I hope they will enjoy them!
In other news, I just finished a great book which I think will be helpful to all my kiddos and not just The Captain. It's a book by Heather Forbes: Beyond consequences, logic and control: a love based approach to helping children with severe behaviors.
