Great idea to create a background for those hundreds of pictures you take as the baby digs in to his or her first birthday cake. Could be done in any color to match any party theme.
Candy Buffet in any color you want. This could be a dressy idea for adults if you don't have kids. You could even trade out some hard candy for chocolate. If you don't have the same pins you could always take some of our brooches or hajib pins and decorate these. Another choice would be to get napkin rings to put on the ribbon and then just wire them onto the lids. Elegant.
Recipes to Try
This file has four printable pages to allow your students to practice extending patterns. The patterns feature clip art associated with going back to school. Students identify the pattern and determine which picture would extend the pattern; they cut the pattern pieces from the bottom of the paper and glue them in the appropriate place. These pages could be used for morning work, homework, or regular classwork. This activity would also make a great math center or math station. $
Have the kids draw themselves on little circles on the first day and then copy them and cut them to paste around a new page. Could be used for a class news letter !
This would be great as one page. Mama hen could snap open, and eggs with baby chicks inside could be underneath her. Put cord on baby chicks to take them out and have them play around mama.
This could easily be done with old book pages and any kind of silhouette. Great step by step instructions.

Another idea to help the feet!! Listerine: the BEST way to get your feet ready for summer. Sounds crazy but it works! Mix 1/4c Listerine (any kind but I like the blue), 1/4c vinegar and 1/2c of warm water. Soak feet for 10 minutes and when you take them out the dead skin will practically wipe off!

Pinner says, "They wanted a photo booth, but renting them was too expensive so they DIY'd it. built the structure out of PVC and hung red shower curtains. We used a laptop with the Sparkbooth software program installed on it, and set a box of props nearby along with small cards guests could take which had the address to our website, where the pictures would be." Great idea!

Girls sent in photo of themselves and bride, and either answer 5 out of 10 questions (“what’s the funniest thing you’ve ever heard Kasey say?” or “What do you like most about Kasey’s husband-to-be?” etc…) or gave them the option to just write their own special note to her. What we ended up with was about 30 pages of amazing memories. Every girl sent something in and it was darling. Could do for any major event- birthday, graduation, etc.
Simple portraits of the kids in a window. These could either feature faces obscured/covered, kids could be facing away from the camera, or the portraits could be taken of them looking out of the window hopefully.
