Dance Team Push Pops

Dance competition season has begun again! Time to troll Pinterest and the candy aisles for ideas! 

At each competition, I give the girls a candy good luck gift and a ribbon. As the seasons and years go on, the ribbons add up to make a big fluff of ribbons on their gym bags. 

Yesterday's good luck gift was Push Pops. 

One thing to note on these is the blue ones make their tongues blue!! :) 

Instead of myself giving out a ribbon this time, a team member made ribbon key chains. They are adorable! 

Happy dancing!

Custom notebooks

My daughter was invited to the neighbor girl's for a birthday celebration. As a teacher, I have a bit of an obsession with school supplies and I just bought a few sets of Mr. Sketch smelly markers on sale. What little girl wouldn't love smelly markers?! But... You do need something to write on so we made her a customized notebook! 

This notebook measures 7"x7" and has plain white paper on the inside. The first page contains a personalized note from my daughter. 

We made the covers out of chipboard. The front cover is torn strips of scrap paper selected by my daughter. We then used the Cupcake Lite Cricut cart for the lettering. 

We made this personalized birthday notebook in under an hour and are ready for the party!

Under the Sea Book Fair

I love Book Fair time! This Spring, Scholastic's theme was Under the Sea. We had a lot of fun decorating my library spaces for the fair!

Classroom Wishlist made using the general idea from Scholastic but with my own twist using the Life's a Beach cartridge!

Dance Team Good Luck gifts

It is competition season for Dance Team and I wanted to do something cute for the girls. After perusing Pinterest for awhile, I decided on Pop Rocks!

Each competition the girls also get a piece of ribbon to tie on their bag. By the end of the season or a couple of years they have a really cool poof of ribbons on their Dance bags!

I'll add more as we go along!
