I decided to change up my student birthday gift this year and tweaked an idea I saw on Pinterest. For the last few years, I gave each student a birthday postcard and pencil on their birthday. This worked, but I was never organized enough to have it ready and sometimes would not be prepared. This year, I’m doing crazy straws as the bday gift with a generic note from me. I got this cute container at Michaels and hot glued some buttons to the top part. The crazy straws I got from Dollar Tree – 6 for $1. The paper part I did myself with some help from My Cute Graphics for the clipart and border. Now, this year, students can grab a crazy straw on their bday out of the tin – much easier for me and a fun gift for them!
