Five for Friday {We Grew Candy Canes!}

I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five for Friday!

Here we go!
On Monday my kiddos arrived to find a note from our elf Flynn and this...

So we carefully planted our magic elf seeds in the magic sugar
and waited patiently.

The note promised that if we were extra good
we would grow a special treat in two short nights!

We arrived on Wednesday to find out that we had grown candy canes! 
Nothing short of a Christmas miracle!

To get in the festive spirit my daughter and I went and got
our nails done.  Super cute!
I wanted to share with you what I did for my student gifts.
I got these adorable mini lunch box tins and filled them
with some goodies.
I consider this one the absolute BEST!

Nikki over at MelonHeadz launched her MelonHeadz Addict Membership!
 I was #3 to join!
If you love her graphics as much as I do then you must go
and join right now!
Just in case you missed the pictures of my parent gifts I 
wanted to share them with you because they
were the best and easiest gift I have ever done
in the 20 years I have been teaching!
They were Pinterest inspired - of course!

I bought the plates at Dollarama and the kids used
Sharpies to draw their picture.
Then I took them home and bakes them at
300 for 30 minutes.

I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!

Bye for now,
