MOPS Worker's Gifts

I wanted to share with you the gift that we made during one of our MOPS meetings for our Moppets workers for Christmas.  We wanted to give them something to show we appreciated, but of course, we were on a limited budget for the year.
The Sparta MOPS right now has three round tables that we sit at for our meetings, so we divided making the bags into three different chores.  One table made the cocoa and bagged it up, one table made the card on the front, and the other table assembled and bagged everything up.  I wasn't sure how this would work out for us, but it went really smoothly and we had a great time working together, too!

 So, the inside of the bag had hot cocoa, a bag of mini marshmallows, a candy cane, peppermint stirring sticks, Hershey's kisses and Andes mints.

We had a cute poem that I found on the internet, but now I can't find it.  I am so sorry to whomever I stole it at this point.  I had it earmarked and for the life of me, I can't find it again!  Here's what it says:

Was told you've been real good this year,
Always glad to hear it.
With freezing weather drawing near,
You'll need to warm the spirit.  
So here's a little Snowman Soup,
Complete with stirring stick.
Just add hot water, sip it slow,
It's sure to do the trick!

We asked if there were people in our group if they wanted to contribute ingredients to make these, and we got donations for everything, except the bags!  We made enough so that each Mom in the group could take one home, plus six extras for our Moppets workers for around $4!  Not bad for Christmas gifts!

Check out those blogs I love to link up to.  Have a very blessed and Merry Christmas!
