I like to give my piano students a little treat at Valentine’s Day. What to give that is fun and yet doesn’t cost much? This year for my piano valentine treats, I decided to fill snack-size bags with gummy bears and add a topper saying “You’re a Beary Good Student.”
I had seen this idea on Pinterest, but alas, when I clicked to copy the copy art, the page had disappeared 🙁 Thankfully Daughter #3 was willing to create a cute bag topper for me. Here it is, and you’re welcome to use it if you like. Be sure to print it with enough space to have some flap to go on the back of the bag.
The gummy bears come courtesy of Walgreens (maybe CVS too; I can’t remember for sure). When I decided to do this, I watched for deals on gummy bears at those stores. Throughout the year, I was able to get a stash of gummies, all for free! The stores often offer them on sale for maybe $2 a bag, and then give you a $2 “register reward” when you buy it. Free is good! And gummy bears are a snack that most all kids seem to like.
I started by putting gummy bears in each bag. Then I put a topper on the top of each and stapled it twice. Prior to this, I wrote a brief message on the back of the topper, personalized for each student.
Voila! Easy and inexpensive piano valentine treats. Do you have any fun Valentine treat ideas to share?
