Sweetie finally turned 4! She’s the youngest in my class…and she was sooo excited that she finally turned 4 and she was a “big girl like all her friends”! She was even more excited to share mini chocolate cupcakes and juice with all her friends at snack this morning! You would have thought she’d won the lottery!
And she got to wear our class birthday vest and birthday hat and she stood in front of the class as we sang happy birthday to her! Our birthday vest has balloons on it and our birthday hat is shaped like a cake with candles on top (I got two hats at the Dollar Tree last summer – great find). Everyone knew it was her birthday and this made her even more excited!
She also got to pick a sticker and pencil from our birthday box. Our birthday box is a shoebox I wrapped in birthday wrapping paper and I keep our hats, vests, pencils, stickers, and birthday cards (from the teachers) in it – very handy! I try to make them feel special on thier birthday – after all, it is the day they were born and it only happens once a year! I think Sweetie was very happy with her day and I got the feeling she felt very special!
For those of you that might want to purchase a birthday vest or two this is the website I got them from. I also got two star of the week vests for my leader of the day. Not incredibly cheap – but well made and totally worth it in my opinion!
