Do you feel like your child worries about his/her first day of school? Don’t you want to make it easier for them on this big day ? Well guess what! Do what parents did for over 200 years to make them feel good about it and try out this great thing called “Schultuete”.
A “Schultuete” is a large paper cone filled with candy, school supplies and other goodies traditionally given to a child on their first day of school.
My oldest is going to start school next year and I remember how it was for me when I started school. I remember how grown up I felt and how excited, but also know how scary it was. Since I grew up in Germany, I received a “Schultuete” like every other child that started his or her first day of school after Kindergarten. Every child received this from their parents and I remember it like it was yesterday. It was almost as big as me and filled with all kinds of candy, toys and school supplies. I loved it. This made my start in to a new school (first grade) so much easier.
I thought that I would share this 200-year-old German tradition, with you. You can easily make one yourself and personalize it individually to your little ones’ preferences. They will have the biggest smile when you give them this cone filled with presents and full of goodies.
I will show you how to make a small cone, but these are usually 3x the size. You can pick your own color and decoration.
This is what you need:
- 1x 22in X 28in Heavyweight poster board
- 1x String, about 21.5 inches long
- Quick Drying Glue (I used Gorilla Glue)
- A Measuring Tape
- 4-5 Elastic bands
- Wrapping paper
- hot glue gun
- 3-4 sheets of tissue paper
Lets make your childes day, amazing and memorable with this great goodie cone Aka “Schultuete”. Fill it up with things your little one loves: candy, school supplies and little toys. Let me know how his/her first day of school went? What did you put in the goodie cone for your child?
Talk to you soon
