Birthday Pencils!

This year, I decided to make my life easier. Instead of giving out candy or writing cards for birthdays, I made my bouquet of birthday balloons! I put a styrofoam ball in a flower pot. Next, I sharpened a ton of pencils. After that, I taped a Happy Birthday balloon to each, and pushed them into the styrofoam. Easy! I saw it on Pinterest with flower cut outs, so it would be a bouquet of flowers, but my classroom decor is black and white polka dots, so this worked with the theme better!

And now, when kiddos come knocking on my door to share their birthday treats, instead of stopping instruction to get them a treat or pencil, I just direct them to select their birthday pencil! Easy Peasey Lemon Squeezey!
