Hey guys!!! Can you believe it’s MAY?!?! Yes, May!!! How in the world did that happen?? Seriously!! So many of my friends are on the countdown. Let me just tell you…I HATE the countdown!!! It gives me severe anxiety!! Please don’t yell “We only have 3 Fridays left!!” in my ear. Or “Only 17 more days to go!!!!” YIKES!!
Don’t get me wrong…I’m totally looking forward to Summer, just like every other teacher on the planet!!! But, May is the craziest, busiest time of the year for me!! Soooo many things to do! So many projects to get done! So many things to remember!!! Ahhhhhhh!!!
Here are a few of the things I’ve been working on…
We make our own hats and tassels. I did a post on it a MILLION years ago! But, if you want to see how to make tassels, it does the job! Ha!!!! You can read it HERE
Our tassels are done…our caps, not so much!! We still have 3 weeks and nowhere to store them, so those will have to wait 🙂
But here’s how our tassels turned out! I bought little graduation table confetti from Dollar Tree this year and we hot glued it to the 2016 to the tassels!!! SUCH a cute touch!! LOVE!!!!
We are of course, practicing our songs!!
Here are a couple of favorites:
2. Thank you gifts for Parent Volunteers
I buy these plates at Dollar Tree and the little stands from Dollar Tree too!!! My friend Erin from Eberharts Explorers has a GREAT tutorial on how to make these!!! You can find it HERE!! $2 for these adorable gifts!!!!! Can’t beat it!
3. Mother’s Day: Mommy Spa

I started making these a few years ago and Man, when I posted them, people just loved them! I did a little tutorial post about them HERE! But, they are ALL over pinterest now! So, you might be able to find other tutorials as well 🙂
8. Portfolios/Memory Books
I just LOVE these portfolio/memory books!!! They were one of the first things that I posted in my TPT store. I wanted something that could track their growth and progress throughout this very important year!! So, now, I’m busy sorting pictures and gluing every child’s pictures in for each month. It’s sooo worth it though! They are so adorable and such an awesome keepsake!! You can read more about them HERE! It’s an OLD post. Sorry! 🙂
