I've seen these carrot-shaped treats done before, filled with orange jelly beans or orange M&Ms, etc., but I wanted at least one non-candy snack for the kids' Easter baskets and thought of using goldfish crackers. Just a fill a cone shaped cello bag. I made some washi tape twist ties to close them up, but anything green would do.

We had a bunch of these stretchy bracelets in our party favor box:
So I printed out some little cards with a picture of Ellen dressed in a princess costume, cut slits in the side, and she put the bracelets onto the cards like a necklace:
(I made these in a rush, so I didn't notice that the font I chose apparently didn't come with punctuation marks until after they were printed. I would have tried to find a more suitable apostrophe and exclamation point. But then, these are for six year olds. Ha.)
We also had some bubbles in the party box, so the boys in her class got these:
I didn't make those cards; I found the free printable here.

I was taking pictures of Ellen and she was giving me that pained camera smile:
(Oh yeah, by the way, we had a baby. Her name is Kate.)

Never got around to posting these last year, but these are the valentines Adam gave out in 2013, our take on the glow stick light saber valentines we've seen around the Internet. Took a picture of him against a white background wearing his jedi robe and holding his lightsaber hilt and added some text. We cut a slit for a glow stick which we slipped in and taped onto the back.
We got the star wars style font here.
