Any ideas for a school celebration toy/souvenir? Answered
Every year we have a "School birthday" party with the whole school decorated with well-known and funny quotes (Star Wars, Sherlock Holmes, Alice in Wonderland, Master and Margarita, etc), some sort of act, games, tea, sweets, oranges, lots of former graduates, chatting, different competitions and a bit of dancing.
We sometimes have something resembling souvenirs: somebody prints notebooks with a funny school drawing on it, or even T-shirts, but last year I decided to make a smaller, but somehow more join-the-fun ones: I brought about 200 prepared floaties (not inflated), which all went away like hot pies.
You can play volleyball-like games with them, carry them in the dark winter streets, make them produce an awful noise and take them home as a present for a younger brother or sister, so that he or she doesn't feel so left out.
I'd like to make something similar, but I don't want to repeat last year. Also it needs to be a cheap project, that is quite quick to make...
I still have loads of time, the big day is the first Saturday of February.
