Lock in Success – Student Gift for soon to be Middle Schoolers!

My 4th grade students are leaving me to embark on a new journey at the middle school.
At the middle school, they will have lockers so one of the items they have to purchase for next year is a lock.
So here was my end of the year graduation gift to them!

These were super easy to make and they loved them! I just printed out the card, cut two slits it the middle and put the lock through the slits.
I’m linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for my Monday Made-it!
Today is the last day for students! Summer is oooh so close! 🙂

      Sabra, I got the locks from Big Lots for super cheap! Hopefully you have one close to you!

    super cute and a practical gift! hope they were cheap though!

      Tessa, the locks were only $2.50 at Big Lots, so these were very inexpensive to make as gifts! I think locks are around 10 at Walmart, so I definitely got lucky!

    Cute! I've been meaning to practice locks with my kiddos but haven't gotten to it. I guess I better get on that…They are leaving me in 4 days! Cute idea!
