DIY School Gift Cone Schultte

"I have always admired the German tradition of giving children a Schultüte as a gift on their first day of school. As it happens, my niece is starting school, and instead bringing her a boxed present where I also include school supplies, this time I decided to make a paper cone and add up a little bit to the overall excitement. For the paper cone (and its content), I used the following: 1. A cardboard (50 x 60 cm) 2. Gift wrapping paper. 3. Crepe paper 4. Glue (white Elmer's) and sellotape."

Well, at the start of school the kids do tend to be a little excited about getting new supplies. Gifting them in a cone is not a necessity but I am sure those little ones just starting out in kindergarten or head-start would really find this interesting to say the least.

I was not aware that Schultute was a German tradition. Not only school children but we all love to start out with all new supplies. For the children this would be a cute option to present them with a few school supplies. Some times the way the gift if wrapped can be just as special the the gift it self.

I agree! I wouldn't mind someone bring me a cone filled with goodies for my sweet tooth!
