My brother and his family just moved to Germany.
When I say just I mean like 3 weeks ago.
Right after they left I found out about the Schultuete (school cones).
Thank you pinterest.
They're a German back to school tradition that started in the 1800's.
Its basically a cone filled with school items.  Germany's make huge ones with
first day of school outfits, pens, markers, anything you could need for school really.

I new right away that I wanted to make some for my brothers kids heading off to a new school 
in a new country.  He only has 2 in school full time right now but I decided not to leave out the
little ones and made one for each.
Since I didn't have a lot of time on my hands and I wanted the schultues 
to reach them before they started school.  I used mostly what I had on hand.
I ran to Targets dollar spot it get the school supplies.

I also sent some Chic Fa La sauce for my brother and his wife.
Who doesn't love this sauce?
