September Reading Rockets Goodie Bags

At my daughters school the have a program called Reading Rockets! Each grade has a number of minutes (kindergarten has a number of books) that they are supposed to read each month. At the end of the year the kids can get a gold, silver or bronze medal, but to encourage the kids to read during the year each class has a Reading Rocket mom. I am that mom this year for my daughters class. So I get to do rewards/incentives for the kids each month who met their goal. This is what I did for the kids who met their goal in September.


Let my daughter help and we picked up some goodies and some halloween themed pencils.  We got the bags at Hobby Lobby and when we were on our way out we saw these cutest little witches hats so we picked those up to go on our lollipop ghosts!



We let my 3 year old son pick out the ribbon for the top of the bags and we used Everyday Paper Dolls to cut out some Halloween Kids to put on the front of the bags.



Here is how they all turned out!

These are so cute. I wish we had something like this program to encourage middle school age students to read. What kid wouldn't read if they knew they would get a special prize. I know I would. LOL.

The kids will love those. And if it kid didn't make the goal this month, they will be encouraged to do it next month so they don't miss out.

Great job!!!! I'm using them on a Halloween card but my skeleton is not turning out as well as yours. What did you use for outlining the white. I use a white gel pin but it seem to be to thick for the lines.

Thanks
