Parent Volunteer Thanks! *Freebie*

Hi Folks!

So, it'd be pretty hard to do what we do without the help from our parents...wouldn't it?  I know some parents find it hard to volunteer in the classroom {I'm one of them...I'm in my own classroom!!!} which means some of us are doing it all on our own...bless you!

I'm a lucky lady.  I have just the right number of parents who like to help out.  No helicopters in the bunch!  I mostly use parents as "station leaders" weekly during Learning Stations {centers}.  Our grade level also has parents come in and help with our Motor Parent program each week. 

It was time to cross that item off my to-do list {which grows by the day at the end of the school year}.  Barb {just search her name on my blog - you'll soon find out she's my "go-to-gal"} sent me the text with the cutest idea...thank goodness for that chicklet because I've been close to tears {or close to diving into the party bag of M&M's I used} for the past two days...no. brain. power. left.

Just grab some of these jars from IKEA {or ikea.com}...
And then grab yourself some of these {and some will power}...

And this...

Am I the only one who has a love affair with raffia?
And these...

Pick yours up by clicking on the picture {google docs}

And finally you'll get something like this...

7 1/2 more days {I'm countin'}...

Oh, and I just got this in the mail today....

...NOW I'm ready!
