Back to School is closing in on me. Must. Get. Ready.
I have been hammering away at my to-do list and I'm actually seeing some progress (wahoo!).
But before I share what I've been up to, you need to know that TPT is having ANOTHER back to school sale! Can you believe it?! This is perfect timing for teachers like me who are going back right after Labor Day and are really getting things ready right now. Even though I scored big during this month's earlier sale, my wish list has magically grown again, haha!! Be sure to check out my TPT Store for any items you may need to kick off the new year. And of course, use the promo code BOOST during check out! This sale is only one day - so don't miss it!!!
One of my summer prep projects that I've marked off my to-do list is making my Birthday Bags for the year. I've seen a lot of other teachers make these and they are such a great idea! I mean, what first grader wouldn't want a lil bag-o-fun from their teacher on their birthday?!
The best part is that they don't cost a lot of money (phew), they are easy to assemble (put mine together during an episode of Big Brother), and they are ready to go for the WHOLE YEAR! So when one of my little darlings has a birthday, I just pull out a bag and a crown and we're ready to celebrate!
|Finished product - so festive!|
|Assembly line - ready to go|
|Bags (from Party City) and labels to seal the deal|
|Birthday bookmarks (from School Speciality)|
|Bracelets - the BEST item in the bag, in my opinion!|
|Gotta have a pencil and a neon eraser!|
|Mini-notebooks (from Target's party section)|
|Mini-kaleidoscopes (from Target's party section)|
How do you celebrate birthdays?
