Birthday Balloons and Light Bulbs

This has been the craziest week of summer.  I have quite a few "made-its" but most of them are not post-ready.  Soooo.....your going to have to wait until next week, or the week after that to see.  I do, however, have two quick things to share:


I got the bright idea for the light bulbs from There's No Place Like Second Grade.  I cleaned out the dollar section at Target and purchased all the light bulbs they had.  They are amazing little stress balls that will serve as a perfect brain boost for my little ones who are stuck coming up with an idea.  I can't wait to try them out this year.


I'm not sure where the idea for the birthday balloons first originated.  I found out about them last summer on ProTeacher.  I love that site!  So many great ideas from teachers who love to share!  Got a question?  Post it there and your sure to get a great response.  I apologize for not having a link to this great resource.  If you recognize them and know who created them let me know and I'll copy their link into my post!

Well, that's all for now, but I promise I have more coming.  Stay tuned ... and while you wait, link up with Tara for Monday Made It!

Love your projects!! I'm so sad because our Target is fresh out of Light Bulbs!!

Sara said...

I'm so jealous! My Target doesn't have any of those light bulbs...and I haven't had the motivation to drive around to search for some in neighboring towns... hehe! So cool that you were able to clean them out! :)
