Discover and save creative ideas

    Following graduation a father handed his daughter a bag with a copy of "Oh the Places You'll Go," by Dr Seuss ...On the first page she saw a short paragraph written by her kindergarten teacher. He told her "Every year, for the past 13 years, since the day you started kindergarten I've gotten every teacher, coach and principal to write a little something about you inside this book." Do this for your kidlets :)

      Great gift idea (but you'd have to start early!) This Dad kept this graduation gift a secret for 13 years. He got every teacher, coach, principal, etc., since kindergarten to write a memory of/for his daughter in Dr. Seuss' "Oh, The Places You'll Go". Gave it to her on her high school graduation. Such a wonderful, sweet idea!

      Best graduation gift of all time? Quite possibly. I still can't read this book without tearing up. For 13 years, Bryan Martin kept the book hidden from his daughter, dutifully taking it to her teachers, coaches and school principals every year to have them append it with positive comments and messages. Finally, on June 8 — the day of her graduation from North Johnston High School in Kenly, N.C. — Brenna Martin received a special copy of the Dr. Seuss classic “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!’’

    Activities for toddlers on planes. ( I think even my 6 year old would like some of these!)

    Note to go along with Oh the Places You'll Go when you give it to the teacher to explain your graduation tradition each year. Great idea!!

    Cool blog for toddler activities, especially for boys. This mom is cre-a-TIVE! More importantly, even though you might think of some of these ideas, now you've got them all in one place to REMIND you!

    I love this money system for kids. It comes from the book "The Entitlement Trap" by Richard and Linda Eyre. Best parenting book ever.

    Write your child a letter each year and add some $ to the envelope. Then give your child all the envelopes for graduation. A keepsake and some cash!

    For all you Moms out there: put your emergency contacts info on the side of your carseats - if you were ever unresponsive in a car wreck the paramedics would immediately know who to contact

    Dr. Seuss nursery! **can I just have this for me?

    This woman has a journal for each of her children, filled with letters to the child and thoughts about them. She started each one the day they found out they were having the child. Gave them when the kids moved out. So sweet and sentimental.

    Road trip clips: One clip for each kid.... If they are sweet, clip stays up, if they are not, clip comes down. Everyone with a clip on the visor gets a treat at the next stop

    Sentimental gift for the future graduate. Buy a copy of Oh, The Places You Will Go, and have your child's teacher secretly sign it each year from Pre-K thru 12th grade.

    Instead of a birthday card every year for your kids, write a message in a book each year to give them when they are older.
