The holidays are upon us, and that means it is time to decorate, shop, bake and craft! Just walk into Walmart and the holiday cheer is ready to greet you. From the twinkling lights to the toys that are waiting to delight children of all ages, Walmart has got you covered. As a mom and teacher, this is my one stop shop for all my holiday needs!
One item that is ALWAYS on my list no matter the season are Ziploc® brand products. These are seriously one of the most versatile items in that store. If you are doing any baking, organizing or crafting, chances are you have picked up Ziploc® brand products to help you at one time or another. Maybe you have done what our family has done and picked up some Ziploc® brand containers to store your ornaments or gift tags in. Perhaps you have purchased Ziploc® brand gallon slider bags to fill with holiday treats to share with loved ones and friends. Ziploc® brand products can be used for far more than storage needs.
Every year, my school hosts three special lunches. Now that might seem like a lot to my readers, and I am sure the cafeteria staff and PTO would agree with you. It is also hard to plan for each year; however, the complements we get make it all worthwhile. Thankfully, we have come up with a plan that works well for us. We offer a Thanksgiving, Winter and Valentine’s lunch. This allows us to space it out. Why would we need to do that? With a student body of over 700 students, it is impossible to set aside one day to feed all the guests that attend. Two grade levels are assigned a special lunch, and they are also given the task of creating table decorations. This year our classroom has chosen to make turkeys, and what better way to do that than using the gold limited edition Ziploc® brand Holiday square containers. These are the perfect size for the body of our turkeys.
Naturally, I have got a wide variety of crafting supplies for my students to use all neatly tucked away in my classroom closet in Ziploc® brand Snap ‘n Seal large containers and Ziploc® bags!
The cool thing about these turkeys is that the students can take them home to use on their own tables. Plus, they have got their own Ziploc® brand take home container. If they are anything like my children, they will be filling it up with grandma’s special desserts or momma’s homemade macaroni and cheese!
In December, we use them for a very special purpose. Students bring in supplies for a care package. These care packages are taken to the local children’s home. Filled with school supplies and small toys, these Ziploc® brand containers are sure to bring smiles to the lucky recipients.
Talk about being versatile! Ziploc® brand products really are a holiday necessity! Which Ziploc® brand items do you use each year? Do you have a creative way to incorporate them into the holiday season?
