Orange you glad it's Friday
Cristin had given me the idea of putting an orange in my daughter's lunch every Friday to remind her it was the last day of the week and to get excited about the weekend. I started this about 3 months ago and would write on the orange, "Orange you glad it's Friday?"
After about a month my second grader said, "why do you keep putting an orange in there, I don't eat them and i don't understand why you are writing on it."
I tried to explain how cute it was, she was not too excited. So I started putting in the Brach's Orange gel slices covered in sugar. They come individually wrapped and she actually likes them and thought this would be the perfect reminder of Friday.
Then after about 2 months she said, "Mom I don't really like those"
So now I have just gone to Hershey kisses on Friday's and have not heard any complaints. If anyone thinks of any other cute ideas let me know. Even though I don't think second graders care about cute ideas, just yummy treats.
