Today was the last full week of school for my kids. That means only 3 more days until summer starts. YAY right? The kids are so excited they could burst. But as a mom I know that that excitement will quickly wear away by week two, day 3, 9am. It happens the same time each year without fail. And when it does, the kids will let you know. They will come up to you dragging their feet, and sour faces and exclaim with a sigh, “MOM, I’m SO bored!” and “There’s nothing to do!”. Here we have 2 choices. We can tell them to go watch some TV (and no judgement here, sometimes we all go that route) or we can direct them to an activity. So that’s where the idea for the “I’m Bored” Jar comes in!
Mother’s Day is almost here! Have you picked out the perfect gift for the mom in your life? I’m still working on finding the perfect gift for my own Mom ha! One of the things I love doing on holidays is themed crafts and activities with my daughter. So this year she told me she wanted to make a list all about me which she could write for Mother’s Day. So she and I sat down and designed a Free Mother’s Day Printable for her to fill out for me. I thought I would share our creation with you so you could share it with your kids and Mom as well! I’m going to frame mine when my little girl is done filling it out. It will make a great memory! Continue reading
It’s that time of year again, time to get together with family, have a great meal, and above all remember what we are thankful for! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because I love getting together with family and I like to cook! (And I’ll admit it, I LOVE Black Friday which pretty much starts on Thanksgiving now anyways right? Ha!). Every year before we have had our meal we hand out a piece of paper for everyone to write what they are thankful for down on and we share them during dinner. It’s one of my favorite family traditions. We have a box we keep them in so we can remember what we are thankful for during rough times that we might need reminding.
So this year I thought I would get a little snazzy and make a cute printable for our family members and I thought I would share it with you guys!
You can print these out, have your kids (and the adults!) fill them out and then you can discuss it while around your Thanksgiving table!
This year I am thankful for my wonderful family, my awesome job, and my small group of friends that I would be lost without. What are you thankful for? Let me know in the comments below!

Fall is coming with it crisp weather. The costumes have floated into the store. The kids are anticipating their night filled with fun and candy. You are of course trying to plan the perfect party or perhaps you just want something cheap and easy for the kids to do so you can make dinner in peace. Halloween happens to be one of my favorite holidays and I love doing Halloween crafts and games with my family. I came up with doing this bingo game after one Thanksgiving at a family member’s home. They had a bingo game and after one game my daughter was hooked. We now make one for every holiday. So for Halloween, I made this Free Halloween Printable Bingo Game for her, and I wanted to share it with you guys as well!
Bingo is so easy to learn and play, and I have found that adults and kids alike love to play. It is also a cost-effective way to have a party game for under $1. It is hard to throw a good party today on a budget but making your games is cheaper than buying them. For our Halloween Bingo Game, we use the printable, candy corn as markers for numbers called, and we make little Halloween treat bags as prizes. This Halloween Bingo Game would be perfect for a Halloween party, a classroom game, or something for your trick-or-treaters to enjoy! This great game can be given to trick or treaters if you forgot to shop for candy or you run out. You can print this and give it to the children with a couple of pennies so they can play the game at home. We hope that you have a Happy Halloween and feel free to share this posts with anyone you think would enjoy it.
So there you have it, a super easy and Free Printable Halloween for your family to enjoy! Happy Halloween!

Another school year is upon us! This year my daughter is entering 1st grade, and has decided that since she has a “super cool Frozen Lunchbox” she wants to take her lunch every day this year. (We will see how long that lasts lol!) So this year I wanted to do a little something special just to show my daughter I was thinking about her while she was at school by making these free back to school printable lunch box love notes for girls that I could sneak into her lunchbox daily. (Don’t worry mom’s of boys, I’m working on a set for boys too!). It’s a small (inexpensive) way to show your child you are thinking about them as they go through their day at school. I can’t wait for my child to eat lunch today and see her little note tucked into her sandwich bag, I’m sure it will bring a smile to her face! Continue reading
