The end of the year School Picnic is something that both students and teachers look forward to. The parents supply the picnic and everyone has a great time at Greene Hollows Elementary School. With three legged races and other fun picnic games, it’s a day of old-fashioned fun that has been taking place for years.
This year the parents group decided that each child would receive a boxed lunch to enjoy instead of doing a buffet style lunch. The buffet style lunch was too hard to organize and box lunches would be easier to distribute and more of a picnic style meal. The class would all eat chicken salad sandwiches, an apple and a small container of potato chips and a container of milk.
One mother was concerned that the lunches would be easy to open in a simple box. That they should be sealed in some way. Another mother suggested getting personalized labels as part of the fun, making the event look more special. Getting labels that said “Greene Hollows Annual Picnic” meant that everyone was reminded these lunches were especially for this time. It was just another way to add to the celebration. One mom was worried about the expense of these personalized labels but ordering full color personalized labels in a batch was quite reasonable. It was far less expensive than ordering the potato chips or even the napkins for the lunches themselves! So it was decided: the personalized labels were a “go.”
Some mothers were given the assignment of making sandwiches, others to buy apples and others to put lunches together. But everyone had to agree that the labels added something great to these picnic lunches. They made the picnic lunch for the school look as if it was catered by a fancy place instead of done by the parents group for the school. The mothers thought that was pretty funny, as there would be no way they could put a caterer in the budget.
The day of the annual picnic was wonderful. It was sunny with just a touch of breeze. All of the kids wore their play clothes, shorts and tee shirts. There was lots of laughing and playing. It was a school day without any schoolwork. It was the perfect day to thank the teachers for their hard work and to celebrate the end of the year. With barely a month of school left, it was nice to take the time to gather together as a school and enjoy some time with each other.
The teachers were especially impressed with the boxed lunches. They thought they looked very fancy and pretty. The full color sticker had flowers and a wildcat, the school’s mascot on it. The kids enjoyed their lunches and had fun playing with each other.
Many moms decided they would use personalized labels for other events in their lives as they added that special touch. With children going off to summer camp, there would be many reasons to use personalized labels with them. With vacations coming up there would be many reasons to use personalized labels to pack and organize things. With family reunions this summer, there were so many great ideas bubbling up about how to use personalized labels. These personalized labels – all budget friendly and so pretty – seemed to make things easier and simpler. Best of all they added a special touch to any event, just what every hostess desires!
