So, when I recently needed some inspiration and ideas to thank the volunteers of our Kids' Club, I checked out Pinterest. The illustration is my version of a pinned idea I found there and it was so easy to prepare. And the recipients of my little 'thank you' gifts? ... laughed, groaned at the pun, and happily passed them around to each other. We ate them while we discussed our next term of Kids' Club (and which flavour doughnuts we preferred.)
If you'd like to use this simple design, I've attached a file ready to print off. I purchased the jam doughnuts but the cinnamon ones would be fine. Simply wrap each doughnut in food-safe cellophane. (It's a bit thicker than the gift wrapping variety.) If you're using jam or cinnamon doughnuts, wrap the 'Thank you' strip around the doughnut and then use double-sided tape to adhere the circular note of thanks to the top. I added a final ribbon bow, as well. If you decide to use iced doughnuts or Krispy Kreme style doughnuts, then omit the strip around the doughnut. (It won't be long enough.)
Our volunteers enjoy helping out at Kids Club and love being part of the group. They don't expect any thanks, but.. they certainly appreciate it when it's given, even if just as a simple bit of fun like this one. And.. it helps create an atmosphere of acceptance and appreciation of each other within our team.
