Father's Day and Volunteers

Yesterday was the last day of school for students; we go back Tuesday for a teacher work day.  These last couple months have gone by very quickly!

We worked on a little something for Father's Day yesterday.  Each child made a card for dad, and took home a little candy treat and a picture with the theme "My Dad Rocks"!  My inspiration was this rock candy treat that I pinned for my Sunday School class around Easter.  I never made it for them, but it seemed like something my kiddos at school would like too.

The photo has a heart made from decorative rocks (thanks Dollar Tree).  Each child sat in front of it, and I took their pictures.  The "My Dad Rocks" was colored then used as part of their card.

I also sent home a little thank you to parent volunteers inspired by this pin.  You can get a copy of the tags here.  The tags were attached to a package of microwave popcorn.

What do you do for volunteers?  Do you "give thanks" each time or do an end of the year treat (or both)?
