happy summer

My sister-in-law is the best! All year long she is showering my children with little treats. Nothing extravagant but extra thoughtful. A little something on each milestone or holiday to make them feel special. This year she out did herself wishing my children a happy summer on the last day of school. She filled Sonic cups with tissue paper, straw and a Sonic gift card. Too cute and my kids loved them!

She wrote each child the sweetest note.

I loved her clever idea to celebrate the last day of school and made some printable tags so you could make them too.  From gift cards to water balloons you can get someone off to a happy summer.

Here are some tags with cute sayings for you to use.

  • Have a flippin’ awesome summer! – attach to flip flops
  • Hope your summer is bursting with fun! – attach to water balloons, Starburst candy or balloons
  • Have a ball this summer! – attach to any type of ball. (My daughter has worn out her basketball so she will be getting a new basketball with this tag attached)
  • Have a blast this summer! – attach to a rocket, water gun, Sonic gift card
  • Wishing you many happy hours this summer! – attach to a Sonic gift card (or any other fast food place with a good happy hour)
  • Have a rockin summer! – attach to pop rocks or an itunes gift card for pool music
