Birthday Bags

Today's project was BIRTHDAY BAGS!  I plan to hang a handled birthday bag for each month across the top of my bulletin board using Command Hooks.  On each child's birthday, I give the birthday boy/girl a birthday crown to wear, a sparkly birthday pencil with a fun eraser, a birthday sticker, a birthday card, and a present (toys from the dollar section of Target or Dollar Tree - think stickers, toy cars, lip gloss, etc.) that he/she chooses out of my birthday box (which is a box wrapped like a giant gift).  This year I plan to have a gallon size Ziploc bag that already has the crown, pencil, sticker, and card for each child already in the monthly birthday bag hanging up ready to go so that I am not frantically getting those things together the day before (or of) the child's big day.  :)  I made monthly labels to put on my jungle-themed bags that I found at Hobby Lobby.  (I LOVE that place!)  Here is a pic of the bags.  I was pleased with the way they turned out! 

Here is what the finished product looks like!  :)

  2. Such a cute idea! I too am usually running around getting things together for birthdays. If I have time this summer I just may have to make some of these birthday bags. I also have a Jungle themed classroom so the bags would work perfectly with my theme.
