Birthday Bouquet

Happy Wednesday! Today I am sharing a new project I’ve been working on which I am absolutely in love with…

The best part about this bouquet is that when one of your students birthday comes around you no longer have to scramble for a certificate, candy, hat etc… All you do is send your student right on over to the Birthday Bouquet to go pick out a “flower”. Then when the student removes the “flower” from the bouquet they have a special birthday pencil and on the back of the happy birthday flower is a little surprise…

a NO HOMEWORK Pass good for 1 night of absolutely positively

Isn’t that the best birthday present ever?????

    These are so cute! Working on this project right now!

    I am wondering if you'll have students return the flower part when them redeem the homework pass so you can reuse them, or let them keep it. Trying to decide if I should laminate.

    I'll let the students keep the flower part as part of their b-day gift. However, I would initial the HW pass w/a sharpie to make sure it is not used more than once ;0)

    I love the idea of having the birthday thing done so I don't have to do, create or gather…I always seemed to do it last minute. Thanks for sharing this on Manic Monday, now I have a great freebie and have found a new blog 🙂

    I love it, but what do you do with the kids that don't have their birthday during the year? Won't they feel neglected?

    GREAT question… I usually celebrate students who have summer birthdays during the first week of school. Seeing that my daughter is a summer birthday herself and has missed out on school celebrations, I make sure that my summer b-day kiddos are not forgotten. They LOVE that we celebrate their special day during that first week!

    Mel, I LOVE this. I saw it done with Pixie Stix on Pinterest and have started working on it with those, but boy oh boy do I LOVE the NO HOMEWORK PASS!! I will definitely have to add this to it.

    By the way, I also LOVE your blog. Thanks for telling me about it. 😉
