    I love the mat idea and may feel the need to copy and apply an Alaskan theme to it! Thank you for sharing!

    I love these and would love to use the idea in the future. Where might I find a pattern to make cute tags like this?

    :)

    We were just assigned our FE groups... There are 4 teens. Any suggestions on what to do or make for them? We are on a budget, but want to do something nice.

    They turned out really cute. I'd suggest getting the Dishie yarn from Knit Picks. If you look on my ravelry page, I tried Sugar & Cream, Jil Eaton and then Dishie. Dishie was so much easier on my hands than the other two and you get more yardage AND it is less expensive.

    Here is my ravelry project page:

    I am somewhat stuck on that too. I purchased Disney cups from Walmart (87 cents a piece) and filled them up with a bunch of candy they can take to the movies. In the girl's cups I also put a sheet of some cute peace, love, etc... tatoos (have one on my ankle right now...my DD said it was a must;)). I am clueless as to something else little to put in the boy's cups. We have a pretty large FE group. Any suggestions are welcomed!:thumbsup2

    You could always ask the FE groups to be split. We had 12 staterooms and less than 50 people individually. I thought if it was any more than that, I wouldn't have been able to swing it. Luckily we had a great organizer!

    We have a great organizer as well. There had been discussion about splitting into groups, however I guess some people didn't think it was necessary. We have something like 34 staterooms and over 100 and some people total. This being my first time doing FE, it is a little overwhelming.

    Love your cup idea.
    As a Mom of a teen boy with braces, he can't eat some candies, but would love one of those lunchbox size things of pringles or chips since you were thinking about movie snacks.
    Pirate tatoos are also a good idea since you were putting tatoos in the girls' cups anyway.
    What about a glow stick on a string to wear or glow stick bracelets might be "manly" enough.

    No way...that's too many. People will be overwhelmed and the quality and quantity of gifts will suffer.

    We are on the same cruise!! I was planning on doing something different for your son since you noted he had braces.:) I kind of separated my gifts by ages for both boys and girls. I gave something different for the 1-5 year olds. The 6 and up and I was doing the same thing so I wouldn't go crazy. We have some older teen boys too. Do you think they would like the glow stuff? My husband mentioned bouncy balls, but not sure how that would go over with other passengers. ????

    I would say no on boucing balls. That would drive some people crazy and could prove dangerous.
    I've seen teen boys at church with the glow things different times for night events or halloween or even at scout camp.

    So looking forward to our cruise. I was at the gym this morning and I kept saying to myself, "2 more weeks, 2 more weeks"

    We are already split... A 16 and 19 year old boy is hard. Thoughts about asking the Mom?

    Was thinking...what about a seek and find or Sudoku magazine/book? Would give them something to do if they were just hanging out. I think they make small ones for like 99 cents. Sometimes Walmart has some cheap card games. That would be fun to play with family or friends.

    On one of our cruises, which had over 50 FE families, we received at least 3 decks of cards, plus a few sets of dice. We've never used any of them. Just FYI.

    Trying to find an eco-friendly gift. I was really thinking of doing the Johnson and Johnson first aide kits, but I am kinda'.... We are going on Earth Day and that's like my favorite holiday. I was thinking of making flower/seed bombs.
