Cute Christmas

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.

  1. Love the idea with the spoons! We have done hot chocolate cups before, but never with real spoons...might have to try it.
