Happy Happy Birthday Baby

What do you do in your classroom to celebrate birthdays? We have a very strict nutrition policy at our school (No Candy, No Sweets!- Items must adhere to policy and be under 100 calories.) Personally, I do not understand why a delectable treat here and there is so detrimental especially when 3/4 of the students live on junk and mountain dew. Oh My-That was little rant!!

Last year, I saw these adorable balloons in pinterest from What the teacher Wants

(Too Cute, Huh!! They used XL Pixie Stix but this is a No No in my county! )


Mrs. Osterman from Kindergarten Rocks used Krazy Straws “Cute Cute Cute”

I have decided to add this adorable idea to my classroom using XL Neon Glow Stix from the Dollar Tree.

Simply click the pictures below to snag my polka dot version of the pinterest birthday balloons!!



Always, Melissa

  3. Love this idea. I've already copied my balloons onto cardstock and now just need to put it together. I love the idea of using glowsticks. Dollar Tree is one of my new addictions!

  7. Very cute! That's nuts that you can't give out candy! I would be fired! I hand it out like crazy!

  8. Great idea. We have the same policy, no goodies. We also make a birthday book but this will be a good addition to that! Thank you for the ver sweet share!

  9. I gave out the pixie sticks last year and the kids loved them. I will be snagging you cute balloon to attach to mine this year. Thanks a bunch!

  10. Sweet! Love it!! We are looking for creative ideas to celebrate bdays at school. We were actually on board w/the "no food" policy because WE want to be the one giving our kids the junk (and very little of it) and thank goodness we liked the policy because we now have a peanut allergy. Parents sending in food is a nightmare and honestly, very scary. Love Love Love this idea! Keep them coming. We've found some great ways to celebrate without food and the great part, the kids enjoy it I think ever more!!
