Personalized Pencils

My daughter started 2nd grade today so I thought it fitting to do a post on these adorable personalized pencils from Go Hobo in honor of our official back to school day.

These fun Go Hobo personalized pencils found on Etsy come in sets of five for $6 and can be personalized with any saying of your choosing up to 30 characters.

They are all handmade on a Kingsley Press, printed one by one in hot foil (color of your choice.)

The ideas on what you can do with these are endless.

I am thinking personalized pencil party favors (gotta love a favor that will actually be USED), personalized pencil teacher gifts, personalized pencil class gifts, personalized pencil birthday gifts, back to school gifts, I could go on and on.

Because really, who couldn’t use a good pencil?

I think I am going to do personalized pencil Valentines this year for the class with a little note like, “I think you’re sharp” or “I’ll get right to the point – will you be my Valentine?”

I mean, how cute is that?!

Visit www.gohobo.etsy.com to shop.

For all you moms out there with kids back to school – hope your transitions have gone smoothly. Cheers!

[Disclosure: I received my tinyoranges.com pencils as a gift and they were so cute I had to blog about them!]

Personal Gift Wrapping Idea for Kids

When I went into our gift wrap cabinet for paper to wrap my nephew’s birthday gifts this week, I realized I was out of any wrapping that could be considered even remotely “boyish.” Out of necessity, we discovered this personal gift wrapping idea for kids which turned out to be such a fun project, I wanted to share with you.

With the party a couple hours out, and no time (or energy) to run to the store I wracked my brain with something we could wrap it with…

Newspaper? Too messy. Magazines? Eh.

And then I spotted a roll of white poster paper we used to make a Bake Sale sign last year and thought, “Perfect!”

We wrapped his gifts in this white poster paper, and then both girls went to work making personal art creations for their cousin.

It was the perfect canvas for my daughter’s pirate message.

Many times my girls will want to include hand drawn or written birthday cards for their friends, so I thought this was a fun and unique way to make a personal gift for children.

Not to mention it was about a 30 minute project which was a nice way to fill some time in the summer afternoon.

Do you have any unique gift wrapping ideas for kids? Please share!
