I am thankful we are still allowed to bring homemade goodies, as long as they are peanut/nut free.
There are so many great ideas here. Now to chose a couple. I am going to have to make a trip to the cake store and check out the cookie cutters...I love any excuse to buy new cutters
Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
I hear that. I'm from Texas and my older sister lives in Harlingen. A couple years back a mother sent some brownies with her son for the teacher. This mother was mad at the teacher for what ever reason. Well the teacher ate some, and shared with other teachers. Within an hour about 6 Kinder teachers were all high!!! Yup them brownies were a little to home made! Ever since then everything has to be store bought.
OMG - seriously? That is awful.....but as a former teacher, I'd be leery of baked good from a dissatisfied parent...
I totally understand why they have these rules in place (allergies, health dept. issues, etc.) but what frustrates me is that we CAN send in items from local bakeries, (no ingredients listed) and the bakeries do not claim to be nut free...makes me so mad...but, it is what it is...
rumor has it in a couple of years no food will be allowed to be sent in - not even store bought...Too bad for the kids...
Off to make a cake!
