Summer vacation seemed to go so fast this year and its already time to go back to school. Which also means time start thinking about breakfast and lunch for the kids.
For the last few years I’ve been making a German Schultute for my son on the first day of school. A Schulute a cone that is decorated and filled with surprises for the first day back to school. The cones are filled with back to school supplies, sweets and toys. My son loves baseball so this year I made the schulute baseball themed and filled it with school supplies, baseball Mad Libs, baseball shaped eraser and some Ballpark Mystery books.
Step #2: Make the cone:
Cut a triangle shaped section for the poster board so it will roll into a nice cone shape. I like to pre-roll it to figure out how much I want to cut. Then I fold my cut line, unfold and cut.
Roll cone and secure with staples and glue. Trim corner of poster board so that you have a nice cone shape.
Fold the bottom third of the tissue paper so you have a nice edge to work with.
Add glue to outside edge of cone and attach tissue paper.
Step #3: Add items to the cone – school supplies, treats, toys, books
Step #4: Tie ribbon around tissue paper to close top of cone
Step #5: Decorate with stickers and write your child’s name on the cone
