Celebrating Student Birthdays: Birthday Tub Fun!

· · · ·

Today I was sitting in my classroom making birthday gifts– I don’t usually do candy for birthdays– instead I give them something like a special pencil, bookmark, and birthday brag tag! I used to make bags like this:But after a few years I started making birthday cups that were always a huge hit! 

Anyway, I realized I needed a place to store them. I feared if I put them in a shoe box on the shelf I would forget about them! So I found an empty ice cube tub and put the bags in there! They fit perfectly!

In case you’re wondering– the ice cube tub came from Walmart and cost around $1. The brand is “Mainstays” and it’s on the row with the dish drying racks.

I then decided I needed a cute label for my tub– and why not put student names and birthdays on the side as a reminder of their big days. So here is the end result: I left blank spaces just in case new students move in throughout the year– but I LOVE how it turned out. So bright and fun– and that confetti paper is one of my favorites!
