For some reason, I was in the mood to celebrate May Day this year! I have fond childhood memories of making baskets out of Dixie cups with pipe cleaner handles. Then we would fill them with treats–usually popcorn and maybe a couple of chocolates. Then the fun began! We would walk up and down the block leaving them on our friends doorsteps, hoping they wouldn’t see us in the process. Am I the only one who remembers this fun tradition?
This year I decided to give May Day baskets to everyone on my team. I thought it would be a fun way to brighten their day! So, I put together a little treat basket, made from some small canvas bags with cute notepads, microwave popcorn, and some chocolates.
If you are looking for a way to let your team know you are thinking about them—and APPRECIATE them—here are some more ideas:
- Tie pretty ribbon around a small plant, herbs, flower, or even a vegetable plant. These are inexpensive and available at every grocery store or garden center. Add a card that says, Thanks for all you do to help others (children, youth, etc…) grow in their relationships with Jesus!
- Get the smallest gift bags you can find and fill them with mini bags of candy. Add a note that says, Everything you do–big and small– is making a difference.Thank you!
- Most stores have bright colored plastic ware for summer. Pick up an inexpensive tumbler, stick in a fun straw and a packet or two of Crystal Light or other drink mix. Add a sticky note that says, You deserve a break today for all your hard work! Thank you for all you do!
