    Hi all! I am a brand new teacher with a brand new 2 year old class starting on January 2nd. I was looking for a cute goody bag to give the parents for their first day away from the kids. I received one when my son had his first day of class and can only remember a tissue and a kiss in there. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Play doh...a reminder that my playful spirit is never far away.
    Crayons...many memories for the two of us will be made when I bring home my own artful creations.
    Hug (along with the chocolate kiss)

    The goody bag is for the parents? I like the tissue and the Hershey's Kiss. Students can make something to bring home for their parents' bags that day.
    Cute!!

    Thanks for the help! I decided to put a small pack of Kleenex and a handful of Hershey Hugs and Kisses in a small cute bag...tied it with white ribbon and added the following on a note.
    "To help you get through the first day of your little one going to school: Tissues for tears (happy or sad!) and Lots of Hugs and Kisses!"
    Since it is only a small dayschool (80 kids or so total) most of these moms have never left their kids at school/daycare before. This is something small to give them so when they get to their car they will have something reassuring. Its not easy being a stay at home mom and leaving them at preschool the first day. I will update on if I get any other suggestions! Thanks again!
