Hug a Coach!

If you have children that play a sport you should make a point of hugging your coach! I am a soccer coach and have been for several years! There is a lot that goes into coaching and sometimes it can be kind of a thankless job. Because I also organize our coaches I know how important it is to say a great big thank you to our coaches!! Sometimes you get lucky and your children get a good coach, sometimes you get really lucky though and your children get a wonderful coach! We were lucky in our league to have several wonderful coaches this year and so I wanted to do a little something for them to say a special thank you!

I made the baskets from 12 X 12 paper and stamped a simple thank you on them. I filled them with floral foam and then stamped the flowers and assembled them around wooden dowels. I made the center of each flower a soccer ball and mounted them onto the spiral punch. I filled the baskets with shredded paper and of course...chocolate! They were a a big hit!

Remember to hug a coach today!
