Birthday Bubbles!

I usually send in cupcakes or cookies to school when it's one of the kid's birthdays. This year I changed it up because of all the different food allergies and eating habits of the kids in Vaughn's class. I wanted everyone to be able to join in the fun of celebrating her birthday. 

Vaughn loves bubbles and at the dollar store they can be bought 3 for $1. Score!

I decided to "fancy" them up by making new labels.

Print and cut them out, making sure to measure the bottle so they'll fit. 

I took the old labels off and used a glue stick to adhere the new labels. Vaughn, being a fancy girl, wanted to make them a little more, well...fancy! 


Vaughn loves butterflies and before we talked to her teachers and were planning on going the cupcake route, she wanted butterflies to be on top. So, after deciding to not bring in food I figured there still has to be way to incorporate butterflies. We found 3-D butterfly stickers at a craft store, in the scrapbooking aisle. Perfect!

Beautiful, butterfly, bubbles from the birthday girl. 

They were a hit with the kids in class, her teachers, and were cheaper than sending in cupcakes. A win-win-win! 

Linking up to these great parties this week!

  1. As a mother of a child with food allergies, non-food treats are much appreciated! These are very cute! Visiting from Homemaker on a Dime linky party :)

  2. Those are just perfect! Great for both boys and girls. They could probably have fun at recess time and play with them then, too!

  3. A great idea. It is so much more challenging to come up with something for these events than it used to be. This definitely works. Thanks for sharing this week on BeColorful
