Darn! I went to my local Dollar Tree earlier tonight (before your post) to get the neat tupperware looking holder that another PTer posted and even tried scouring all the aisles for Pixie Sticks...no luck! I'm super jealous you found them.
But I ended up going to Party City to get them...too bad I could not have saved half of the price though. Mine cost a total of $15 (30 for $.49 each). Not too bad considering I used to do goodie bags filled with stuff and a birthday pencil from Really Good Stuff. I'd say I am going to save some $$$ doing the balloons in the long run.
I know what you mean about the food police. I have decided to do these anyway.....I am thinking that I will some how disguise them so they won't know what it is.....our principal is really big on not giving candy....hey.....this is flavored sugar not candy.. hehehehehe
Haha! The food police at our school are some of the parents. They will call the principal and rat you out if you send home candy with the wrong children. I have one coming to me who is deprived of anything with any sugar at all. These kids think the granola bars we serve for breakfast are like hitting the jackpot. If I sent home a straw of sugar she'd have my head!!!
