Need a little help
Colby's class is having a Valentine's party, and although the teachers did not ask parents to send in something, it was implied in the newsletter that said "if parents choose to send in treats for the valentine's day party, please be cautious of allergies in the classroom". Well, there is a kid in his class that is allergic to nuts, and there is a kid who Colby says is "allergic to sugar". Well, after asking around, it's not that he's allergic to sugar, it is that his parents refuse to let him have any sort of "sugary" treat. At all. Poor little bugger. I really want to send in something, but it has to be nut free and sugar free. Broccolli? Carrots? Packages of oatmeal? Fruit To Go? I'm at a loss. I thought of going to the dollar store and buying valentine pencils or stickers or something, but hell, who really wants that? And since the choices are so limited I'm sure that there will be plenty of Rice Krispy squares already, even though the marshmellow is probably off limits to this little guy. I wanna do something "cool" as Colby would say, but I just don't know what to do that would allow them all to have it. Any suggestions?
