*we had tablecloths that were cowboy themed
*each of the kids got a bandana to wear around their neck to take home. I ordered mine from Oriental Trading Company and I was pleased with the quality, but I found some at Walmart for less. I wish I would have found these earlier because it would have saved me $10!!
*I got a crazy idea the morning of the party that I wanted a poster to decorate the room. I googled and found a website that I could plug in an image into a wanted poster. Then I went to Office Max to see if they could print it quickly. If I printed this at a photo store it would have cost me a ton, but I read on a blog that office stores will print out black and white images on large poster paper for really cheap. So, I went to Office Max and explained to the manager what I was doing. He printed the poster in color and laminated it for the cost of a black and white poster (around $4). Score! I felt so blessed, I almost cried. Check out the poster:
|Isn't this amazing! I just love it!|
*We played the Over/Under game using apples and carrots. We divided the class into 2 teams and each team had to empty their bucket by passing apples and carrots over their heads and under their legs.

*We had a huge ice cream party. For the first time, I tried out one of those free online signup sheets. I loved it because it kept me from emailing parents back and forth. It saved a ton of time!
|This is Taylor with her fabulous teacher, Mrs. Carpenter. |
