The Wheels on the Bus

The Happy Buddy went through a season where whenever I had to change his diaper, he would turn into a little rotisserie, rolling around and around.

Something had to be done or there was going to be a lot of poop everywhere.

One day I broke out in a rousing rendition of The Wheels on the Bus and suddenly the Happy Buddy stilled.

3,452,895 repeat performances later, that song is still a lifesaver!

As the first day of school approaches, what better way to celebrate than with some school bus-themed crafts and snacks for your Happy Home?

Some of This and Some of That had her Happy Buddies paint an empty egg carton yellow, glue some magazine cut-outs of kids inside, and slapped on a few paper wheels!

They gave these cute Egg Carton School Buses to their teachers on the first day of school!

    I’d love to have you visit our first linky party this Thursday! It’s a party specifically for kids and teenagers craft and other ideas, so your post will be absolutely perfect! Hope you’ll stop by!

  3. How cute!!! My daughters birthday is the beginning of Sept. One year, due to construction on the building, they started school late and we had her birthday the weekend before school started and used back to school as the “theme”. My aunt made her the school bus cake (she made it bigger and with her homemade cake) but instead of the cookies for faces, she laminated pictures of all the kids that would be at the party and put them on the bus. It turned out SOOOO cute!!!

  4. I am a Mama and a Kindergarten Teacher … and I LOVE this post!
