Confession time: Im the terrible when it comes to remembering my students' birthdays. Every year I have the good intention of doing something special for my kids but I always forget or realize there is no time... sound familiar? This year I promised I would not let that happen, especially since I know that many of my kids are not celebrated at home.
I created birthday bags for each of my kids. I knew I would have to come up with something budget friendly since I have 20+ kids and it can get expensive!! I went to the dollar store and found this:
I thought they were perfect! 10 bags for a dollar??? I'll take them!
Then I went on to the fun (but hardest) part... finding treats. Of course, my heart wanted to get different things but my wallet wasn't so sure...
Luckily I found some HAPPY BIRTHDAY pencils at Target for $1.
These I think were the "most expensive" items I bought. They were a dollar yes, but it only had 6/pack. I brought them anyway! My kids love them!
Some erasers from Dollar Tree 12 for $1 is a great deal!
Then I went to the party section and found these awesome sticker boxes!!
Every bag also included Smarties
You can grab them for FREE here. I've also included a Spanish version :)
What do you do to celebrate your students' birthdays???
