Simple Thank You Presents

9 Jun

For the last year my boys have attended Royal Rangers at our church every Tuesday evening.  It was an hour and a half of wicked fun, Christ-centered goodness.  They learned Bible verses, first aid, knot tying, made derby cars (both boys ranked respectively first and second for the turtle award – we may have to google designs next year!)  and so much other rockin fun!

This week was their awards banquet so I wanted to make sure to say an extra big thank you to the men that volunteered their time week after week to our sweet guys.

The boys agreed that they wanted their thank you to be camping themed and after explaining that mommy’s budget couldn’t afford to buy them all tents (sorry guys!) we settled on s’mores kits and flashlights. Now this isn’t dairy free but still totally cute.

What you need:

Large Mouth Mason Jars (have I mentioned just how much I love mason jars?  Seriously, buy me a dozen, I will love you for-eva!)

s’mores makings (graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate)

snack sized baggies

small flashlights (I found these in the dollar section of the local craft store)

ribbon and fabric if you’re so inclined

Simply put your s’mores making goodies in the baggies and layer in your jar.  Cut a piece of fabric in to a square large enough to be screwed between the flat lid and the ring.  And then I cute the string (or ribbon) long enough to go around the rim of the jar twice, threaded the flashlight through it and we were done.

Now here is just how cheesy I am (you may never read my blog again after reading this), and note that the fabric had bees on it…  We attached a card, that both the boys signed, with this written on it:

“thank you for bee-ing the light to help me fall s’more in love with Jesus this year”

Yup, groan away.

    I found dairy, soy and nut free dark chocolate bars at Natural Grocers, “Boom Choco Boom” by Enjoy Life. A bit pricy at $1.50 per bar but totally yummy! Grme
