Cupcake Birthdays and School Valentines
Coming up we have a certain girl turning 8 years old, and Valentines Day. Nearly-8-year-old-girl is having a small birthday party with her friends at home in a few weeks. She chose a decorate-your-own-cupcakes party. Yay, easy!! (Or so I thought.) We were talking about activities and favors – I suggested aprons w the attendee’s names on them instead of treat bags, but I got shot down. Treat bags are in, treat bags are cool. And not to toot my own horn, but I stuff pretty nice treat bags.
So ok, yay! Cupcake theme, goodie bags, we can pull this idea out again:
Uh, no. Nearly-8-year-old-girl put the kaibosh on that. It’s been done, that’s so my-sister’s-6th-birthday-treat-bags. This child is NOT a repeater. So the search continues…. or begins. All suggestions welcome.
All suggestions are welcome for this, too: School Valentines. Last year we (“we” = “I”) made paperclip bookmarks for 1st grade
and the ever-famous “kid holding a lollipop picture” for kindergarten.
No one wants bookmarks this year (that’s kinda a relief, that was a lot of work!), and little girl wants the lollipop picture again. That’s a fine idea to me, she only has one kid in her class from last year, so there will only be one repeater. The lollipops were 10 for a dollar at Walmart, so it’s not terribly expensive, either.
So now we’re looking for some cupcake-8-year-old-birthday ideas and one set of super cool and crafty Valentines. I’m a little off pinterest right now, I feel like there’s too much junk to weed through these days. I guess it’s back to google and any ideas you’ve got for me!
