{Looking Ahead} It's the End!

It's here!!! It's finally here!!! The end of the school year is this week, so I try to have something fun for my students to do to wrap things up. I found this "foodtivity" on pinterest from The First Year Blog:
Really cute, right? I thought they would be perfect; they didn't look too difficult, and it would be pretty inexpensive to do for our last day of therapy. Weeeell, ours didn't turn out quite the same. This one was mine:
And this one was a student's:
I wouldn't call it a complete "Pinterest fail"; the kids seemed to enjoy it. I used already made frosting & put some blue food coloring in it. I also took a short cut by buying the graham cracker crumbs. I also used the graham cracker fish instead of the regular goldfish crackers. Just the thought of putting the little cheesy crackers on the sweet stuff didn't sit well with me! The little jimmies and white balls (for the bubbles) are pretty hard to control. After we put them together, we played a game to let the goodies dry just a tad.
It was a free-turn kind of day; just a fun last day before summer break. The students really enjoyed Hopping Frogs from Super Duper. After we played the game, I put the Graham Crackers in a sandwich bag for them to take home. (I don't allow students to eat anything in my room...I insist that they wait until they get home to ask their moms in case there are allergies.) Here's a tip: When you put something like this in a sandwich bag, make sure there is some air in the bag to help preserve it until they get home.
There will be another round of Under the Sea Graham Crackers and Hopping Frogs for my other school, then paperwork and cleaning up so I can leave ASAP on Friday.
I have to give a HUGE shout out to the following for giving up a lot of time on Saturday to help me design my new logo"

These ladies are the BEST! I'm pretty happy with the end result:
It was very interesting to look back and see the first idea, then to see it evolve into the above. 
If you've stuck with me through the year, thank you. If you've just found me, look through and see if I can inspire you! If you have questions, leave a comment below, or email me!
