Sweet Little Christmas Gift

This is our first year with children in the public school system.  Naomi is in the 18+ program at our high school, for children with special needs.  Cooper and Conner are in the self-contained kindergarten class for children with special needs.  Everyone loves their school and the many teachers, therapists, specialists, and aides who work with them.


Since I’m a former a teacher, I thought about the gifts I was given that I really liked.  I LOVE sugar and sweets, so I loved the idea of these mason jar gifts.

We baked many cakes—red velvet, butter yellow, and chocolate fudge.  Then we crumbled the cakes and layered them in mason jars with icing and sprinkles and M&M’s.

Then we hot glued velvet ribbon to the rim of the mason jar lid and stuck a cupcake liner over the round metal sealing lid.

And last, but not least, we tied a card and spoon to the jar.

We made 30 of these to give to everyone who works with our kids.

Naomi was SOOOOOOOO excited to give her gifts.  She said everyone loved them. 


We wish you a SWEET Christmas, too!
