You know what middle school kids love that we don’t talk about here a lot? Sugar – especially sugary goodness that can be glopped onto any and every single thing they like to eat.
Right now, nutella is stepping it up their already impressive chocolate-meets-hazelnut-meets-gluten-free-spreadable-yumminess by labelling their jars with school years, 1st through senior. YAY!
Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t have time to run around my town, scouring the shelves for all the right grade labels for every friend I know. Thankfully, nutella’s website offers free labels for us to print and tape to whatever nutella jar we can find! HERE IS THAT LINK.
Here are some fun ways you could celebrate your middle school friends’ return to school using these fun jars of deliciousness:
- Deliver a jar to their home the night before / day of / week school starting.
- Use for a raffle prizes at events, however that looks for you!
- Take 2 jars to 1 student and ask them to help deliver the second (with you!) to a friend of theirs you’ve never met.
- With permission, stand outside the school at the beginning or end of the school day and pass them out. Perhaps add a little WyldLife signage or info for the year with each jar?
As always, we’d love to hear what other ideas you have for connecting with your middle school friends! You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
