We love celebrating people, in The Cirkles home. Making people feel loved and valued is so dear to our heart. One of my favorite "celebration tools" is the good old-faithful "Post-It Note". Here's why: 1. They're cheap.
2. They're colorful - it's like giant stick-able confetti.
3. They're versatile.
It truly is amazing how a little creativity can made a BIG impact in small ways to a person's day. Whether a birthday, achievement, or "just because" here are some ideas:
1. Post-It Note Celebration Calendar
This is what we did for Ryan this year for Father's Day.
Concept : Write a bunch of fun things on post it notes, then let the "celebratee" choose when he/she wants it by sticking it under an appropriate day.
For Ryan's Father's day I tapped this up on Monday. Fun things on post-it notes on top, and days of the week on index cards under. (Oliver helped me decorate).
Then day by day, Ryan "spread out the celebration" by moving a post-it-note on the appropriate day. It's a decoration, activity, and celebration all in one!
2. Post-It Note Blast of Encouragement
I had a team of gals that blasted my office with Post-It-Note encouragements on a big achievement day. Walking into my office to a flood of colors and slowly reading kind memories, scriptures, and thoughtful words was so so so very special. (Big impact for probably a $6 pack of post-it-notes)
3. Post-It Note Shapes I don't remember if this was for a birthday or "just because" but writing kind things on post-it-notes and then arranging them in a certain shape is a fun option too. I used a heart for Ryan, for obvious reasons, but you could do a number for a birthday, a house for a new move, a smiley face for a big-deal moment, etc. Even if the post-it-notes have simple things like "Yay! You did it! Hooray!" it adds such a fun element of celebration.
So - go buy some post-it-notes and add some color and celebration! A special shout out "Hooray" to all the dads out there on today's Father's Day! You are SO valuable! Happy Celebrating,
Abby *Don't forget... The Cirkles are cheering you on.
