Grace started preschool for the first time...and I have volunteered to be a room mom for the first time.
I have found myself in charge of goodie bags for her "fall" party. Since it's a "fall" party, we were told to avoid using ghosts, witches or anything that has a Halloween theme.
Fortunately, timing is everything.
Erin from Just*Grand shared a tutorial for Pottery Barn Knockoff Decorative Matchboxes and she used the cutest pumpkin graphic from The Graphic Fairy.
Inspired, I decided to use that pumpkin graphic and print it out on brown paper bags.
I copied the graphic to a word document, adjusted the paper guide on my printer to securely fit the brown bags and printed them out. *It did take a few runs to get the placement of the graphic right. To help the paper bag feed through the printer, as the printer was grabbing the bottom of the bag I was also applying gentle pressure to the top of the bag pushing it down.
18 bags later, I think they make the perfect "fall" party goodie bags.
And, I've already started to fill them. I found a quick and easy play dough recipe from Musings From a Stay at Home Mom. One batch made 5 rolls of play dough.
So, experienced room moms out there...what else do I fill these goodie bags with?
This may be my first time as room mom but I am determined to make sure it doesn't look like it's my first.
