Grab & Go Birthday Gifts!

Birthday Cups

I wanted to make sure to do something this year for the kiddos ahead of time since I will be out on maternity leave.  I love these simple birthday cups that I made.  All ready to grab and go! Since not everyone's birthday falls during the school year, we will have a class vote whether to celebrate 1/2 birthday's or have one big party to celebrate all birthday's not during the school year. 

I'm sure you get the idea from the pictures but some details are below. 

I went to Starbucks and I asked for 24 cups for a class project since I'm a teacher.  They were generous and grateful and handed them over. Make sure to ask for the cool whip lids with them. 

I went to the Dollar Tree and Walmart and purchased goodies that are in packages for birthday parties.  Some items: stamps, mini bubbles, bouncy ball, jumping frogs, yo-yo's, and candy.   I filled the bottom with some colored paper crumpled up and the top with some cellophane.  I topped them with a red Tootsie Pop to represent a cherry.  The straws I had on hand but I think they would be cute with a pencil or crazy straw sticking out too! The labels I made myself, printed and hot glued on.  The labels are on the outside not laminated. Nothing fancy. 

The finished product!
