With the impending birth of a new sibling, we bought a couple dozen bottles of the bubbles that can be used for weddings, etc. and decided that Tegan (3 at the time) could announce the birth of her new sister in this manner.
Approximate Time: Seconds, depending on how many.
We typed into the Word Processor program and made a template filling the whole page with:
I AM A NEW BIG SISTER (putting big sister's name here)
We waited until the birth of her sister to quickly color the whole page in pink, totally scribbled like, and then cut the sheet to the size of the printed label. We peeled off the back and stuck it on. As we needed more bubbles to hand out, we just printed another sheet. By having it all done ahead of time, it was a breeze to take to the hospital or to hand out to friends. And since it was from a sibling, she got to give them to her friends.

What a cute idea! Beats cigars! It's very important to make the older child feel part of it all. You're smart parents.
What a great idea! We gave out bubblegum cigars when my daughter was born.
Thanks, rather I am the GRANDMA with the great ideas that gives me opportunity to share with the granddaughters, and do fun things ALL THE TIME! We enter things into the county fair with all the things we do, take home lots of ribbons and they get premium checks to bank. 2 yr old had $15, 6 yr old had $50 year 2008!
