Do your Last Week of School plans include end of the year activities and craft projects? Are with your students or remote virtual distance learning? This last day of school activity (or any day) is one of the best gifts for students you present to them.

It's more than just an end of year craft activity and better than a memory book. You can even have the kids design their own containers as an end of year STEM activity. Your 1st , 2nd, 3rd, 4th or 5th grade kids will think of you when they use it with their families in years to come. Use the included end of school year writing paper for a letter to parents or a note to students from the teacher. The editable or blank cards are great for reflection questions. It's one of the most popular Clutter-Free end of year activities in our TpT Store. Best of all, it includes digital and printable versions for other holidays and seasonal events so you can reuse it with future classes for:

  • Father's Day Craft
  • Back to School Activities (first day of school or first week of school)
  • Grandparents Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Hanukkah
  • Christmas
  • Valentine's Day
  • Easter
  • Mother's Day

It is so much more than a craftivity because it helps to strengthen your students' relationship with their parents and caregivers and other loved ones and also helps to further develop a stronger home to school connection. The final product is such a great way for families to learn about what is happening during their child's school day.

This will be one of your go to Last Week of School activities because it is meaningful and special. It is also low cost and easy to make in the classroom. It will quickly become a favorite annual project. Your students’ families will surely thank you! It truly is A Gift That Keeps on Giving!


❶ Unlike a craft that will be tucked away, hundreds of parents have reported how much they LOVE this gift because it brings the family closer together.

❷ It is the perfect combination of NO PREP, LOW COST MATERIALS and EASY TO DO yet more valuable than any other gift you could have your kids make.

❸ It makes it easy for students from non-traditional families to make more than one gift so both homes are equally included.


Every year I would struggle to come up with an idea for gifts that my students could make for their families. Some of the obstacles I faced included time, cost, and level of difficulty. Many of my students came from non-traditional homes and would therefore need to produce more than one gift. Also, not all of my students celebrate the same holiday so I needed to come up with something that was versatile. This has been a hit in my classroom for years as well as one of my most popular products.

I recently gave it a complete makeover with updated fonts and images and made the optional blank cards differentiated with and without lines to meet the needs of all your learners. It’s designed to be used with short Pringles cans, but you can use any container (jar, can, paper bag, mason jar, etc) Teacher use it for Christmas, Hanukkah, Valentines Day, Mothers Day, Fathers Day, an End of Year Project and as a Back to School Activity.

Be sure to read the wonderful feedback this has received over the years. It is one of my favorite products of all time and something I cherish using in my own house with my three children as it really helps us stay connected when life gets busy.
