10+ Fun, Inexpensive Ways to Say Goodbye to Students

It is the end of the school year. The kids are done. I was *almost* ready to pack it in a month ago. Saying goodbye is important, but let's face it... we are out of money AND the energy for anything too spectacular. I'm here to help. Take a peek at these fun, inexpensive ways to say goodbye to your students!

These fun bubble tags will help you show your appreciation in both English AND French! I grabbed the bubble wands at our Wal-Mart for $1 each!   

My students LOVE sidewalk chalk, and I love these cute tags from Leah With Love!

These word clouds are fabulous and can easily be created with a site like Tagxedo! I love that everyone in the class contributes to this project!

These lollipop flowers are such a cute idea, and at only pennies per child!!

Make a treat bag full of any sort of goodies you wish and use these cute bag toppers!

What kid wouldn't LOVE these Kool-Aid and crazy straw gifts? I mean... I'm a grown-up, and I'D love them! :)

Your students will be made in the shade with some sunglasses complete with these cute little "Our future's so bright, we're going to need shades!" tags!

There are many heartfelt poems floating around the internet, but I love this one!

Some teachers provide beach balls with a Sharpie marker for writing messages to each other. What a ball!

What about recognizing how quickly "This year FLEW by!" with a labeled Frisbee for each of your kiddos?!

Celebrate the end of the year with bouncy balls and these free "This year has been a BALL!" tags.
