Pinspired

I just wanted to take a  2 blog posts (once I started adding pictures I realized how many there are!) to show you the things I have made that I have found on Pinterest. A lot of them were for birthday parties for A, B, or C, but I thought some of it could be used in the classroom for various themes or for your own kids parties. If I can find the original pin where I got the idea I will put it at the bottom of this post.  Have You made anything you have found on Pinterest?

These are from B's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Birthday Party.   The Turtle shells are marshmallows dipped in green chocolate with green sugar on them.  The water bottles have labels on them saying thank you for coming.  The other bottle have Ninja Turtle Masks that were made with construction paper and circle stickers that I cut in half.  I wanted to put black centers in eyes, but the new turtles do not have that.

I made the graphic for his shirt in PowerPoint and then put it on a t-shirt transfer. I bought the green lanterns through Oriental Trading and then used crepe paper and white paper to add the masks and eyes. 4th birthday shirtTurtle Decorations


These were made for C's Very Hungry Caterpillar Party.  The round cake was for his cake smash and made by one of my best friends, Desiree.  She found the idea on Pinterest for both cakes and went with them. You can check out her other cakes here.  The hat and shirt I also saw on Pinterest and another friend of mine, Tabbi, made them. (on very short notice I must add)  She does a lot of really neat stuff.  You check out her creations here.   The cake smash pictures were taken by the fabulous Lisa from Unmentionable Photography by Lisa.

The centerpiece I made using buckets I found in the Target dollar section.  I put the green floral stuff in the bottom (the name is escaping me right now) and stuck a piece of tissue paper over top to cover the green, then I just stuck in the lollipops and straws.  For the favors I found some candy that resembled food and put it in the bag, then added the top which I printed out on the computer.
