Remember the banner I posted a while back as a way to welcome your child to summer? One of my readers, Mandy, took that Family Fun idea a few steps further and really thrilled her children. Great, easy ideas and I'm excited that she shared with me.
Under the banner were goody buckets for each child. Including flashlights, animal crackers, silly string, book on CD, a passport, etc.
Taped to the side were pieces of paper saying fun things they were going to experience that summer.
And how about these passports?
"The passports were my favorite ... again, derived from an idea I read about in Family Fun magazine this spring. I broke out my scrapbooking sticker letters for the front, then doctored some recent pictures (not the ones with the best smiles by the way ... because who's passport picture is their favorite?!?) for the information page. I'll have to take a picture once they "authorize it" with their signature. The idea is that they'll take these passports with them as we run errands and do other stuff this summer. I'm guessing the grocery store clerks, post office workers, etc. won't mind stamping "something" on the pages (even if it's a date stamp or a sticker, maybe even a smiley face they draw). Should make doing errands a bit more fun."
So cute, right?
Thanks to Mandy for sharing these great ideas with us!
