Halloween Class Parties

Fall is my favorite time of year! I know many others who feel the same way. Fall/Halloween classroom parties are the best! It's time to start planning for it now.

My youngest is in fourth grade this year. It's bittersweet to say this will be the last year for classroom parties at our school. Being a room parent was one of my most favorite creative outlets! It allowed me to be involved in my children's celebrations at school as well as give me the opportunity to be creative and have fun with them. I'm going to try to make the most of it this year!

I'm helping to coordinate the Halloween/Fall party for my daughter's fourth grade class. I'm going to be in charge of the favor bags that go home with them. I haven't decided what I'm doing yet, but wanted to share with you what I did for my son's class last year. He's in fifth grade this year and even though they don't have actual classroom parties, I might try to think of something. Fifth graders still like yummy treats, right?

Anyway, here's what I came up last year to send home with the students in my kids' classrooms. I designed the tag myself, although I got the main gist of the idea from Pinterest.

Hope you like!

Teacher gifts for Easter

Wow! It's been too long since I've added anything fun to my blog!! I've been busy with my kids playing basketball, homework, substituting at school and just plain living life -- which is always a good thing. We've just started 4-H, soccer and baseball, so that will take over for the next couple months or so! Not complaining. I'm so glad they're interested and can do it!

Our school is out Thursday through Monday for Easter. Even though it's not a full week, it's still nice to have more than 2 days off in a row!

For Easter this year, if you need a quick and easy idea, this is a pretty good one! I had to go with something quick and easy because we have been so busy, but I still want the teachers to feel appreciated this holiday. I made mini baskets for the teachers, principals, secretaries and bus drivers.

I bought the pink cups at $ Tree. I should have stocked up because they were so cute and I could have used them for party favors.

I bought a few candies and filled the cups with "grass," chocolates, then wrapped them up in plastic treat bags. I designed the tags for them as well.

Hope you have a wonderful Easter and Spring Break!!!
