Yup, that's what I am this year :) Probably the next few, actually. My kiddos school as one day a month when the students can bring a parent, 30 minutes before school, have donuts, and read books together. It's a great program and I am so excited that I get to be over the activity! The past few years have been very dull and plain, but that's just not how I work! So for the past few months, I have been scheming and planning and purchasing :).
I got some of the most darling aqua gingham fabric to make a table cloth for the donut table I sit at :) Think pinked edges- just darling!!
I also found this printable online and enlarged it, covered it with felt that was close to the design, and will have the perfect welcome sign! I love how 3-D felt makes things look. The kiddos at school will love it too, I am sure!
Then for me, I looked everywhere, online and in brick and mortar shops for donut fabric to make an apron. Nothing spoke to me or had the colors I was going for! So I bought a precious apron from Hobby Lobby, using the 40% off coupon of course, and designed my own "logo". Then I pulled out my embroidery thread and got to work :). I just ADORE how it turned out!! The ruffle is so me, and the design is even more me!!!
I also found some hot pink melamine trays at Hobby Lobby too, with coupons of course, to set up the donuts on.
And then I needed something to give the kiddos that wouldn't be eaten in two seconds, and since they are reading with their parent, I thought of bookmarks. I tried designing one, but without a great editing program on my computer, and not being able to figure out how to draw on the picmonkey program, I was not sure it would work. Then I walked in Walmart a few days ago and saw a cart of school supplies on clearance. Yup, the coolest bookmarks around, in packs of 25- hot dog :)!! Buying the ton
I needed was still way cheaper than printing out my own- score! Now I just need an orange container for the bookmarks :).
So beings my first year as "The Donut Lady"! I am so excited and feel mostly ready to make this activity even more fun and looked forward to than it is :) Ready or not, here I come!!
