How Do I Do Birthdays?

Hey Ladies,

I just have a real quick post for you today but I want to share with you how I am doing birthdays this year.  Being in the position I am in, I see pretty much half the school, which is a lot of kids' birthdays to celebrate!  Even students that aren't my intervention kids will bring me treats on their birthday so I wanted to have something cheap and easy to give to them when they come! 
This year I ordered these awesome, FREE, birthday business cards. 
The design is one of their free ones and I just made up the text.  Love them, and 250 of them should last me 2 years at least! 

I got a big box of air heads, because who doesn't love them a good 'ole air head, and taped one of the cards to each one. 
Finally, I stuck them all in this cute cupcake bucket and set it on my cabinet so it is easily accessible whenever a kiddo comes by and is easy for me to grab when one of my kiddos has a birthday!

 So, that's it!  It's simple, convenient, and I think the kids will love them!  I know it's not as cute as those balloons, or silly straws but this works for me, and maybe it will for you too!
