Anyhow, I've come across two linky parties with some end of year gift ideas, and I figure I'd do a quick blog post about the gift I gave my kids last year!
Their gift included:
-a beach bucket and shovel
-7 books (see my previous post here to find out how to get books for dirt cheap)
-a wiffle ball
-a toy car
-a necklace for the girls (the boys got two toy cars)
The kids loved it because it was simple and fun! And it was pretty inexpensive thanks to dollar store deals. But.. this gift had a catch! Their end of year gift may look fun (and it was!) but it also was academic! Check out my letter below to see how this gift helped them practice key skills over the summer!

Let me know what you think!
