1st Day Frame, Robot Snacks, & Quick 200+ Giveaway

Hurray for Monday Made It! Bless Tara's lovely blog for hosting such an amazing linkie party. You can spend hours searching through all the fabulous made-its from fabulous teachers.

This week I just had to create a 1st Day of 4th Grade picture frame.  Tomorrow (our first day of school) students will each get to pose behind this fun frame for a quick pic that I can email to their parents and/or mail home.  A bunch of these have been floating around.  Mine is modeled after one I found on First Grade School Box's blog.  I must admit, mine is not as durable as hers.  I snatched a piece of foam board from Staples, cut it out to look like a frame, and glued some letters and stars around the outside made with scrapbook paper from ACMoore.  It was quick and easy to put together.  I'm not sure how long it will hold up....but it will serve it's purpose on Tuesday!

I look a little tired in that picture....too many back to school dreams and not enough sleep.  The shadow in the background of my husband taking the pic doesn't help either....any suggestions for a good digital camera?  My birthday is coming up in a few weeks!

I also created some first day snacks for my kiddos. To coincide with our robot theme I made little bags of Nuts & Bolts (aka - M&Ms & Pretzels).  I was inspired by Wendolonia but had to tweak the baggie toppers to fit my bag size....and because I simply can not print in any more color.  My husband will pop his top if I have to purchase one more round of ink for our printer this summer.  He thinks I am turning into a print-a-holic.  You can download my baggie toppers here.  Just print them out, cut, fold them in half, and staple them to the top of some snack-sized Ziploc baggies!
