Treat Tree

I was catching up with one of my scrapbooking student's Mum the other day at my youngest daughters end of year prize giving at school.  She was telling me about what she was doing last week for some children in her neighbourhood.

Mrs G has a lovely tree that is planted outside her house near the street.  she decided she wanted to do something special for the children that go to the school that is pretty much right outside her gate.  Each day she would go out to her tree and hang little treats for the children.  Each day she tried to make it a bit different.  What a lovely idea this is.  She hung lollipops, and candy canes.  It did not take long for the children to realise these were left for them.

What was also really special was that one of the children left a lovely card for Mrs G as a thank you for all the treats of last week.  Personally I think it is really cool and a great way to share the Christmas spirit at this time of year.
