Part of the joys of being at a Parent CO-OP school it the interactive sessions. Today was one of those, where we got to be snack helper in her class.
What does this entail? Getting there 15 minutes early to help get the class room ready, providing the snack for the kids that day and serving it, staying 15 minutes or so after class and helping clean up.
It’s fun watching your kiddo interact with their peers in a class room setting and seeing how they handle themselves. Snacks for 20 people are no big deal if you are clever with couponing — we served Juice (FREE), Goldfish crackers ($.50) and string cheese ($2). $2.50 to provide a healthy, peanut free snack to 20 kids…not bad!
The hubster and I usually tag team it – we BOTH show up and help out…it becomes kind of a neat “family” thing that way and Sarah seems so proud to introduce us to her classmates.
I will have to check the calendar, but I think we are off rotation for another 2 months…I think it will be time to pull that GoGurt (FREE) out of the freezer and add some more Goldfish Crackers- what do you think?
