Happy Birthday Eric Carle! Celebrate with PercyVites!
Happy Summer vacation!
School let out this week and I'm already in love with beach days, trips to get ice cream, and later bedtimes. Losing the rigorous schedule of school, homework, and after school activities like speech, dance, and grading work is always a welcome respite (but to be honest, I end up missing it quickly! What can I say - I love structure!). As an English Language Arts teacher though, I never give up reading. My kids do it for fun (gasp! right?!) because it's just so important to me.
One of our favorite authors is Eric Carle and his birthday is this weekend, June 25th! In an effort to make reading a fun past time, we decided to host an Eric Carle birthday party and invite over some of our best friends to celebrate with us!
I've written about Percyvites before so I went right back to them for this as well!
PercyVites makes it easy to organize online invitations to send to your friends and their Eric Carle collection was just what we needed!
They are super easy to create, filling in pieces step by step with the party information and recipients. PercyVites even helps you keep track of responses!
We've got a bunch of friends who will be joining us and we even made some delicious Eric Carle inspired desserts for the occasion- seriously, what's a birthday party without cake?!
We also grabbed some easy decorations from Cakes.com - the Eric Carle / Hungry Caterpillar decopac was perfect to top our cupcakes!
And as if that's not enough, we're planning a trip to the Eric Carle Museum this summer! I love a good adventure and anything that ties literacy into fun is perfect for us!
I'm so excited to celebrate this weekend-- how will you be celebrating Eric Carles birthday?
