I would love to make the pixie stix balloons, but we can't give out food. Besides straws, does anyone have any other ideas of what to use??? I was thinking about using pencils or the glow stick necklaces from Dollar Tree.
We technically aren't allowed to give anything sugary unless it's during a class party. So, I will be giving them to my students at the end of their special day or at the beginning with the understanding that they can't eat it till they get home.
I have decided to have a variety of balloons and let each student pick one from the bouquet on their birthday.
I love the Pixi Stix idea and finally found them on Amazon (50 ct) and Oriental Trading (40 ct.). I couldn't decide on which size I wanted though. Amazon's are put out by Nestle and are 22 inches long, while Oriental Trading are put out by Wonka and are 11 inches. Does anyone know which will work better for the balloons?
