Schultüte or “School cone” is a cone shaped bag filled with goodies such as sweets, toys, chocolates, school supplies etc. It is given traditionally by grandparents to kids the day they enter the first grade.

The grandparents also take the children out for dinner the night before. The Schultüte is supposed to ease any anxiety children might have when they return to school.

The tradition of Schultüte is more than 200 years old and is practiced in Germany, The Czech Republic, and some parts of Poland and Austria.
