So birthdays ~ it seems to be a hot topic nowadays. Michelle Obama has her opinion and so does everyone else. Over the last 2 years I have opted out of celebrating birthdays with food! Oh the horror!
I have decided to NOT celebrate with food for the past 2 years. I know, I know I sound like the worst teacher ever. But, the amount of allergies my students had have has risen significantly and it's just not worth it to me. Also my district has a healthy kid rule in place and the list of what a parent can bring in is very restricted. I mean how many times can you have a skinny cow in one month people? Instead I have the bday kid come up and we sing to them, then in years past I have left bulletin board paper on their desk for their classmates to write a nice note. Lastly the birthday child can receive a special something from me. This is what I just made for this coming year and...It's a freebie in my store right now!!! I would love to know how you celebrate birthdays in your school/class/district. Take a looksy and tell me what you think. They took me very little time to prep and I'm ready for the year...so easy!
Leave me a comment with how you handle birthdays... and swing by my store and grab my freebie too.
