As suspected, the competition was fierce for the construction birthday party invitations. After carefully reviewing all of the two entries, I could not make a decision. Both entries offered some very creative ideas for activities, treats, and party favors that included setting up a construction site in a sand box and designing a play roadway with cones and yellow tape. See the original post and comments to learn more.
To pick the winner, I set up a double blind drawing with the help of my daughter (who picked the winning name out of the bowl). I know the anticipation is killing you, so congratulations to… Aunt B. It is your lucky day! I will be contacting you shortly with all of the details, and we will want pictures after you host your party. A special thank you to Phyllis (the dark horse) Ford for participating.
To everyone else, please keep reading. My daughter’s kindergarten orientation is on August 17, and if I time my arrival correctly, I should be able to make it to the parent volunteer sheet before anyone else and snag the title of Kindergarten Room Parent. Wish me luck and stay tuned for more tips and tricks to help you navigate the school year.
