My son helped a classmate celebrate his birthday today - the young man's clever mom brought kool-aid popsicles with frozen fruit inside. What an excellent idea - plastic cups, plastic spoons, grapes & strawberries & bananas, and kool-aid. I wish I had thought of that.
I'll probably copy it, since there are cupcake-shunning food wardens patroling our public schools. Aahh, the days were every mom brought thrity-two homemade over-frosted cupcakes to celebrate a birthday. Almost makes me want to move to Texas, where I hear that they have a law that you CAN bring homemade cupcakes to school. (I don't know if that's true - it's just what I hear. (that was my disclaimer in case I'm wrong) )
The other best birthday celebration idea was fat-free sugar-free pudding cups with whipped cream. The kids loved that.
What are your good ideas for birthday celebrations at school?
