• Project: Have Fun with it Friday: End of school Year Tradition {Good-bye 1st Grade, Hello 2nd Grade! Hello Preschool!}
Hayden had just completed 1st grade and Morgan will be doing another year of preschool (so hers just said “Hello Preschool”). It was a cute thing for the girls to wake up to on their last day of school to find these cute popsicle sticks in their breakfast!!

• Time: 5 minutes
• Would I do it again? yes! the smile on the girls faces was priceless…sometimes it’s the little things that they remember 🙂
• What I would do differently: Wish I would have started this when Hayden was in Preschool!
• Items used: Card Stock, Popsicle sticks, and adorable printable from: Crayon Wishes and Popsicle Dreams

Project: day 94: crafty kiddo/ diy printable happy birthday banner for Hayden’s 7th birthday spa/sleepover!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2. Hayden wanted to help with all of her birthday plans this year, so she was a great helper!
• Would I do it again? yes! Hayden picked out the color scheme of this banner, but you could easily switch it up for a boy, or any other party colors
• What I would do differently: use a circle cutter or any other better tool other than scissors and craft wave scissors! A touch difficult, but it still turned out ok!
• Items used: adorable banner idea from: http://www.karaspartyideas.com/2010/03/spa-cupcake-party.html
