Fortune Cookies

I had this wonderful last day of school gift idea for Makayla's teacher.  The plan was to make fortune cookies dipped in chocolate and sprinkles, and have them in a chinese food to-go box.  I found these great books online, the first was a children's book, for the classroom, called fortune cookie fortunes, the second a little book full of different fortunes for the teacher.  Next, put it all into a basket with a clever little tag saying "I was so fortune-ate to have you as my teacher". Great idea right?  Un"fortune"ately, my free shipping coupon was only good during the memorial day holiday weekend, and the books I had hoped would arrive on thurs. (the day before the last day of school), actually didn't make an appearance until friday around 3 or 4:00. After school, and too late.  So instead of a basket full of all these wonderful ideas, she received the cookies in a to-go box, and Misty even made a cute little tag with a fortune cookie on it.  I was a little disappointed at first, but it was fun making the cookies with Misty, and I'm sure her teacher was just happy it was the last day of school, books or no books.


  1. You are so clever, I love this and also the rice krispie treat idea! Did you make the fortune cookies from scratch too? If that's the case I'm even more impressed! (I tried that once and it was a complete bust)

  2. Adorable! I really love how they turned out. I love the box too. You're way too creative. Sorry the books didn't come on time though - that sucks. Way to go for makin' do!

  3. thanks for putting the idea out there AFTER school is already out!!!! That would have been great for ashley's teacher, I guess there is always next year...
