Kindergarten Graduation Snacks ~ Healthy and Fun!

Do you have a kindergartener this year?  I do, and wanted to provide a snack for his graduation party.  I don’t know about your child’s class, but I think most of them get plenty of sugary treats during their parties!  That is fine, but why not have something cute, and at least somewhat healthy too?!

You will need:

Fruit cups or applesauce cups

4×4 inch card stock squares (1 per cup)

googly eyes

glue stick

Sharpie (optional)

bakers twine, thin strips of paper, or ribbon

Begin by cutting your squares of paper into 4×4 squares.

Then, Turn your fruit cup upside down and glue the square to the bottom of the cup.  The thin plastic to open it should now be on the bottom.  Once that is glued onto the bottom of the cup, glue the googly eyes.  I found they stayed on fine with normal glue stick, but if your fruit cup is textured or more round then mine, a hot glue gun may work better.  Glue the eyes on and draw a face with your sharpie if you desire.

Now, cut three strips (per cup) of bakers twine, ribbon, or even of paper.  Tie them in a small knot at the top and glue them to the top of your graduation cap. (The square you glued on first)

Feel free to write something on the top, or leave it plain!  Would work for any graduate.  Would also make a fun addition to a gift basket of supplies for the high school graduate that is headed to college.  I provided some links above for the products on Amazon, why not order them now and be ready to make them when the time comes?

You guys, you will not believe how thrifty a photo booth is to have at a party. You don’t need a professional photographer, or some intense backdrop. With a diy backdrop, some cardstock and skewer sticks, you can make your own photo booth that the guests are going to have a blast with.

*If you are using skewers, you may want to cut the sharp end off of them to make sure no one gets hurt.

You will need

skewers

cardstock

scissors

hot glue gun

It is so easy to cut out some fun shapes. I used my Silhouette craft cutter that I love. But it isn’t necessary. You can find some shapes online, many people have free photo booth props if you google it. Or make your own shape ideas. If you really want the ease of the Silhouette shapes, their software is free to use, you can print the shapes out instead of cutting them on the machine. Another great option is to search the shapes you are looking for on google and print a outline to trace on the cardstock.

Once you have them cut, hot glue them onto your skewer so that they can be held for a photo. So much fun, right?

Finger Print Flower and Poem ~ DIY Mother’s Day Card

 

I was looking at some old Mother’s Day cards my kids have given me over the years and I came across this finger print flower poem.  I loved it then, and still love it now.  So my girls made a few of them yesterday for a fun after school project.

The poem reads…

I made you a flower

With my finger and my thumb

So you will have these memories

For all the years to come

Happy Mother’s Day

 

Free PDF Printable Here:  Mothers Day Finger print poem card

To make these all you need is a white price of card stock cut into a strip, colored paper to make the card, green marker to draw a stem, paints and some cute little fingers.

Have your child dip their finger in green paint to create the leaves.  Then dip their pointer finger in paint to create the flower petals.  I found it was easier for them to follow a circle drawn with pencil.  Attach the poem and you are done!
