Just print this file (can print in color or black and white) on white or colored cardstock. Then cut and attach the balloons to stick candy (PixieStix, Nerd Rope, peppermint sticks, Twizzlers, etc), pencils, or crazy straws, and you have an instant, inexpensive birthday gift for your students!
I teach fifth grade, and I've tried tons of birthday ideas-stickers, pencils, candy bars, certificates, etc-and this has been the easiest on me and the most appreciated by my students...they LOVE this!! On their birthday, I put out a laminated birthday sign in the hallway that I write their name on. Then when they come in, I let them go and pick a birthday balloon. They spend time picking out the perfect balloon for them!
