Robot Valentine Sacks & The Perfect Valentine for BOYS!

Yay for February! It truly is the best month of the year. I really LOVE Valentines Day and it's even better in the classroom, because kids make it so much fun! One of the best parts about Valentine's Day is passing out valentines and it's super important to have a valentine box/holder for each of your students. So many of you have loved the Love Monster Valentine Sacks (click here to check them out), that I'm excited to share with you a new valentine sack craft.

Your students will adore these "Robot Valentine Sacks" and they are perfect for holding valentines on Valentine's Day for both boys and girls! I know your students will love making these because my little boy was over-the-moon excited to be making a Robot sack for his valentines-- and he sure loves his "robot guy!" 

Click (here) to check out these "Robot Valentine Sacks" in my TpT shop.


Your students will love creating their own robot and they will even get to write about them. On the back of the valentine sack, you can include an "All About My Robot" section. It's always fun to see what your students come up with and it also makes it more personal for them.  *Please Note: The download in my TpT shop only includes the patterns for the Robot Sack. The gift bag is not included in your purchase.

Okay and how fun are these Valentines for boys (or anyone, really)? I put them together for my little guy, but can I give them to my friends, please??? These whoopee cushion valentines are perfect for kids and adults, alike. I also love that these valentines are fun, but not a sugary sweet! I got these whoopee cushions from Oridental Trading (here) and if you hurry, I'm sure you can still get them before the big day.

Happy February!

DIY Easter Bunny Banner

Last Spring I fell in love with an adorable Easter Bunny Banner from Pottery Barn. Instead of buying it though, I thought to myself, "I could make this!" And this weekend I did make it and it was SO easy!! I love it even more than the one at the store, because I got to choose my own floral/spring patterns.


Pictured below are the materials needed for this project. I bought the Floral Flair Stack (here) from the craft store and I love the variety of florals that it offers! You will also need a bunny pattern to trace onto your scrapbook paper. You can find different bunny patterns here, here, and here. I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut out my Easter bunnies, and I bought the patterned for less than $1.00 at the Silhouette Design Store. If you have your own Cameo, click (here) to get the bunny pattern!


After I cut all my bunnies out, I hot glued a white pom-pom onto each one. 


When the bunnies all had their little cotton tails, I arranged them to my liking and strung the bakers twine through the ears. And then, I was finished! I had a hard time deciding where to hang it, because it looked so cute everywhere. 


Happy Easter, Sweet Friends!

St. Patrick's Day Joke Book (Freebie)

For St. Patrick's Day, you can give your students this fun, free St. Patrick's Day Joke Book! (You can print one out for each child or make one for your classroom library and read the jokes to your students throughout the day on St. Patrick's Day.) But let me warn you, once you give your students these books, they will be telling you these jokes all week, so start practicing your fake laugh! Click on the image below to download.


Warning: These jokes are super cheesy and very silly! (Which is what makes them super perfect for your kids.) These books also make great reading practice, because they will want to tell these jokes over and over again. Kids love it when they have a joke to share with their friends and family!


Shamrock Measuring is another fun March activity that your students will love.
