What is more exciting than your child's very first day of school? Make a starting school treat cone with your child and learn about the charming German custom of Schultüte.
In Germany parents celebrate a child's first day of school by making a hand-made cone called a Schultüte. They fill it with school supplies, snacks, and other fun things. Children then carry their Schultüten with them on the first day of the school year. To make your own Schultüte, start by rolling a piece of poster board into a large cone.
Glue the edges down with Crayola® Glue Sticks. Trim the large opening with Crayola Scissors so it is flat. Add a few staples at the top and bottom for extra support.
Roll construction paper around the point of the cone and glue. Tie brightly colored ribbon or string around the bottom.
Using Crayola Washable Markers, decorate your Schultüte with your name, shapes, swirls, and pictures of your favorite things.
Glue tissue paper around the top edge of the cone. Fill your Schultüte with goodies. Gather the tissue toward the center and tie.
