Teacher & Parent Committee Gift Ideas

Super easy and inexpensive gift idea for parent committee members: mints 

I got the mints and snowflake jar from the Dollar Tree.

Also an easy gift for teachers: nail polish

"For Your Mistletoes" 

For a work grab I added lotion, a foot scrub, nail file, and other pedicure goodies! Super easy!

My Niece Aubrie had a Frozen Birthday party over the summer and of course I was super excited to help out! I made the candy buffet labels, olaf treat bags, snow playdough, and paper crowns for the kiddos to make.

Here is the gift I got for Aubrie. A beautiful cape inspired by Elsa's from Frozen with her name embroidered on it, plus a golden grown!:

Preschool Graduation: Bug Picnic

For our preschool graduation this year we had a BUG THEME. We set up picnic tables with picnic style tablecloths and set up a food table inspired with bug themed food:

  • spider crackers
  • dirt cups with worms
  • ants on a log
  • very hungry caterpillars (grape skewers)
The kiddos sang bug songs:
  • Ladybug, Ladybug
  • The Buggy Wuggy (hokey pokey inspired song)
  • Very Hungry Caterpillar by the Learning Station
We then gave out awards, certificates/diplomas and handed out these cute bug explorer gifts:

Batman Birthday Bash

Bat Signal Favors
For my nephew Micheal's 4th birthday party I made these super easey batman favors:
How I made these super easy favors:
  1. I bought the multi-colored flashlights from the Dollar Tree. I ordered them online. I also got DD batteries from the Dollar Tree as well.
  2. I ordered the batman stickers from Check them out here.
  3. The stickers were great and super easy to apply.
  4. I then found the batman thank you tags here. I printed them out and mounted them on yellow poster board. I then just gave it a hole punch and wrapped yellow ribbon through.

They really work too!
