The results are in, which means election season is officially over (well, except for the runoffs). It’s time to take those campaign signs out of the front lawn. Instead of throwing them away, why not put them to good use?

Disney's Family Fun magazine recommends turning those old campaign signs into special birthday signs for your children. Just prime and paint them with your message, like “Happy Birthday, Ryan!”, and reposition them in the front yard for a special birthday surprise.

Your kids will love this new tradition, and the signs can be repainted and stored for years to come.
