Happy Birthday Treats

First of all, let me mention to all of you how much I love Pinterest!  It is the most awesome site ever.  I cannot take credit for this idea....but I did try to make it match my classroom Monkey theme.  The pieces finally fell into place and I am thrilled with these cute little birthday treats! 
While shopping  at Sam's Club the other day I found these Giant Pixy Stix.  I was thrilled because I knew I had seen an idea where I could use these so I quickly scanned my brain to remember what I needed to do with them and could not remember.  So I bought them anyway and then came home and checked my Pinterest boards.  Yep, there it was the Birthday Balloon treats!

So I headed out to the hardware store and can you believe it.  They had bright green fluorescent spray paint! The cashier looked at me in a very puzzled way as I bought this stuff but hey I had a plan!

Found some cute ribbon and even cuter monkey at Hobby Lobby and then I quickly scoured my house for a container to spray paint.  Yes, I know I could have found one at Hobby Lobby but buy this time my wallet was pretty much empty!  So I went to work and sprayed my container, hot glued the ribbon and monkey on so it would match the Monkey theme!

Next I made a balloon template, printed it on pretty card stock colors, and taped it to the candy sticks.  Now my birthday treats are done and ready for the school year!
