Apples are So Last Year - Breakfast for the Teachers

You know when you have a good idea and it just kind of takes off?  My sister and I did that this week.  We’re responsible for Teacher Appreciation stuff for PTA at our kids’ elementary school, and we  came up with a fun Back to School breakfast idea for the entire staff.

Here’s the set up:

Funny Banana Breakfast for Teachers

We gave the teachers water bottles (with labels I created to go with our theme) and bananas (“apples are sooooo last year”).   Not just any bananas.  These were special.  Special because we wrote a different funny message on each banana.  Sayings like:

“I’m healthy and I know it.” 

“How many days ‘til Christmas vacation?” 

“We love you like a monkey loves a new banana!”

“Let’s make like a banana and split this joint”

“Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana.”

and

“Bananas are the new apples”

Oh my word…there was laughter! My sis and I giggled the whole time we were writing messages on the bananas (we prepared them the day before our breakfast presentation).  And we were relieved when it was a hit with the faculty! A very inexpensive idea that treated the entire staff! Score!
