First Day of School Sign Printable

First Day Of School Signs

I can’t believe that the beginning of the school year is just around the corner! The summer always seems to go by faster than I plan and while it has been fun, it has also been a little crazy in our house with 3 little kiddos running around (I’m sure many of you moms know exactly what I mean). This year, we’ll be putting our 3 year old in pre-school for the first time and I know he’s super excited about it! He’s been waiting to go ever since his brother started kindergarten last year.

First Day Of School Sign 2017-2018

Today, I’m happy to share with you a “First Day of School Sign” that you can use to capture your cute kiddos on the first day of a new school year. These make it so much easier to help you remember what they looked like on the first day of school in a new grade and what year they actually started that grade. They’re also great for scrapbooking or using them as a binder cover that you keep your child’s projects in for safekeeping.

I’d love to see how you use your First Day of School sign on Instagram! Have a great school year!

August Wallpaper Calendar & Quote

August 2017 Monthly Calendar & Quote

Since it’s the last official month of Summer, I had to throw in some popsicles for this month’s wallpaper. I cannot believe that we are already into the month of August and slowly starting to get ready for school to begin. Luckily for my kids, school doesn’t start until the day after Labor Day so we have 1 full month of summer left to play.

As hard as it is sometimes to have all 3 kids home with me, I have also enjoyed having the chance to play with all 3 kiddos and do fun things with all of them! We have gotten almost all of our Summer Bingo activities done already and have gotten at least 3 bingos! If you haven’t seen the Summer Activity Bingo Printable yet, check it out here!

Hope you’re all enjoying your summer! Now grab your colorful and fun wallpaper for the month!

Ice Cream Birthday Party

Ice-Cream-Birthday-Party

Last weekend we celebrated out little girl’s 1st birthday! She is our 3rd kiddo and each time I am amazed at how quickly that first year goes by. She has definitely been my hardest since she is a lot more clingy to me, but for the most part she has generally been a pretty good baby.

First Birthday Party

My boys and I are all winter birthdays, so I was pretty excited that I was going to be able to celebrate a summer birthday! I kept racking my brain on what we should do, and I remembered making an invitation for my niece last year for an Ice Cream birthday party. I loved how it turned out and thought it would be awesome to use the same invitation and theme for her 1st birthday! Since we just got back from vacation, I kept it pretty mellow (for me that is) and kind of threw it all together. So, if you’re looking for a really simple and easy birthday party for your little one hopefully some of these ideas will help with your own party planning.

Ice Cream Bar Birthday Party

For Riley’s Ice Cream party, I created a simple Ice Cream Bar with different types of toppings and used “candy bowls” that I found from Michaels to hold the toppings in:

-Mini M&Ms

-Chocolate Chips

-Sprinkles

-Toffee Bits

-Crushed Oreos

-Gummy Bears

-Strawberries

-Cherries

-Hot Fudge

-Marshmallow Fluff

-Magic Shell Chocolate

-Whipped Cream

Toppings Ice Cream Party

You may see that blueberries are pictured above. Nobody used them, but if you were looking for a healthier alternative, you could make a little fruit salad with the strawberries and blueberries and top it with some whipped cream.

Ice Cream Party Bar

I used waffle bowls that I found at Walmart for guests to use for their bowls, and found these super cute napkins in the party section at Walmart. They fit the color scheme so perfectly, and I loved the gold in the napkins! Here’s a closer look (because I loved them so much). 🙂

Ice Cream Party Decorations

And for anyone that wasn’t feeling an ice cream sundae, you could make your own root beer float or in addition to your sundae.

Ice Cream Birthday Party 1st

Riley’s smash cake was the centerpiece of the Sundae Bar, and if you look closely you can see that the cake was starting to melt because it was so stinkin’ hot in our house (and sadly lots of homes in Washington do not have A/C… we are those unlikely individuals).

Ice Cream Cupcakes

And to tie it all together, I made some cupcakes that looked like ice cream sundaes. I frosted them with a super delicious buttercream frosting, topped it off with chocolate sauce (I used the magic shell chocolate) added sprinkles, a chocolate Hershey’s kiss and stuck the cupcakes in the refrigerator after they were decorated so the shell would harden.

Ice Cream Cupcake Party

It was so much fun putting this party together, and we all had a great time! So happy to have this little girl in my life and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her.

July Wallpaper Calendar & Quote

I’m a few days behind with my monthly calendar, but I’ve finally got it ready! We’re going to Hawaii in about a week and I’ve got Island fever on my mind, hence the theme for this month’s calendar. Save this wallpaper on your desktop, smart phone or print it out on an 8.5×11 piece of paper to hang in your home or office.

A reader requested that if there could be the option of both a calendar & a quote to choose from, so the quote I’m going with today is simple and short, but in many ways powerful. I hope this helps remind you during those times you need it most to stand tall!

Summer Activity Bingo

Summer-Activity-BingoIf your kids are active like mine, we are always out and about during the summer. I have at least 1-2 big activities planned during the week, and at least one outing a day, whether that be at the going to the playground, library, playing baseball, etc. My son’s school recently had a “Bingo for Books” night for all the families where they did 5 rounds of Bingo and won a book or a prize for each round and since then my kids have loved playing Bingo.

With that being said, I thought my kids would have some fun staying busy and playing Bingo at the same time with this Summer Activity Bingo. I’ve made one with a whole bunch of activities you can follow along with, and one that you can type in and make up your own activities!

Here’s how to edit your blank Bingo Card:

  • Open the file in Adobe Reader
  • Click “Sign” in the top right corner of the window
  • Begin typing in the boxes.
  • When you are done, click “Done Signing” to save a copy or “Signed. Proceed to Send” on the right tool bar. Save a copy and/or send to a friend.

I’d love to see how your Summer Activity Bingo is going, so feel free to tag me in your posts on Instagram! Have a fun and safe Summer!

DIY Father’s Day Gift – Dad’s Stache

Father's Day Gift Dad's Stache

I’ve been loving all the “Dad’s Stache” printables floating around Pinterest, and I thought it would be fun to add a personal touch and add the kids to the jar with a printable. The boys thought it was totally hilarious and loved wearing the “mustaches” on their face. That’s what makes this jar even more fun and adds the perfect touch for Dad’s father’s day gift.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Picture of Your Kids wearing these Mustache Printables
  • Printables: Small Printable to glue on the picture OR Large Printable Mustache Sign to hold while taking the picture: Dad | Grandpa| Gramp| Papa
  • Sign to use as a prop (See instructions for number 1)
  • Large Jar
  • Candy
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Box Cutter/Knife

Father's Day PicturesFather's Day Picture Jar

1) Snap some pictures of your kids wearing the mustache and holding a blank sign (or some other prop they can hold to make it look like they’re holding the printable), or holding the Printable Mustache Sign. If your kids aren’t holding the sign straight, you can always shoot the picture at an angle. 😉

If you printed out the “large printable,” go down to step 4.

2) Once your picture is printed, cut it down so that it will fit the jar and use a box cutter to cut around their hands like the one pictured so you can slip the printable underneath. Getting the printable to fit will depend on your picture and sizes will vary. I made the border of the small printable sizes a little bit bigger so you can cut it down if you need to. You can either use the printable provided or make your own instead. 🙂

DIY Dad's Stache

3) Put glue on the back of the printable and carefully slip the paper underneath the kiddos hands.

Dad's Stache Jar Gift

4) Glue the picture onto the jar and stick some Dad’s favorite candy in and your Father’s Day Gift is all set! Since my jar was pretty big, I bought some candy bars to stick in the jar. This is perfect for Dad’s office, man cave, or his secret “stash” on the top shelf of the pantry. 🙂

 

 

June 2017 Wallpaper + Printable

June-2017-Wallpaper

As each month passes, I can’t believe how fast another one has gone by! We are approaching summer break and I can’t wait for some fun in the sun with my kiddos. Our first summer in Washington I was pregnant and always working. Now that I’m not doing either, I’ve been dying to explore the state of Washington! I’m looking forward to more hikes, exploring the Northwest Beaches (even if they are rocky), water fun, parks and so much more!

I kind of fell in love with this wallpaper, so hopefully you will too! I’ve made one for your desktop, smartphone & one for you to print out. Can you tell that I’m excited about summer yet? 🙂 Hopefully this fills up your space with lots of color and gets you in the spirit of Summer.

Pineapple Countdown

DIY Pineapple Countdown paper chain

We have a couple things to look forward to this summer. First and most importantly, school is almost out! The next big thing on our list is our family vacation to Hawaii, and let me tell ya, we are pretty excited about it. My 3 year old will do the hula dance and it is hilarious, I can’t wait for him to see the real thing! With Hawaii on our minds, I came up with this fun Pineapple Countdown. It’s the perfect way for all of us to see how many days we have left, and a great way to help our 3 year old learn to count (and get his numbers in the correct order).

Everything is easy to put together, the only party I had trouble with was the pineapple tops. I don’t know about your freehand cutting skills but my pineapple tops were garbage. So I made it easier on myself (and for you) with a printable that you can print on green construction paper and you can cut out as many as you need.

Pineapple Count Down

Here’s what you’ll need:

Green, Yellow & White Construction Paper

Pineapple Top Printable – (Print on Green Construction Paper)

Scissors

Tape

diy pineapple countdown chain

Get everything cut out and ready to go. I cut my strips about 1″-1.5″ thick, and cut it horizontally so I had more strips from one piece of paper.

Pineapple Countdown

Stick two pieces of tape onto the back of a pineapple top, as pictured above. This doesn’t have to be fancy, since you’ll be taking off the loops as you countdown your days.

Pineapple Countdown chain and printable

Place the pineapple top onto the middle of a green strip of paper, and then form a circle and hold it together with a piece of tape.

Countdown Pineapple Chain

Add another “chain” to the green strip by placing the yellow strip of paper through the green strip and holding it together with tape. Then add another yellow strip as pictured above. Your pineapple top may look like it’s going to move all over the place, but I promise once it’s hanging, you can adjust it the way you like and it will stay!

Countdown Chain

Then add a white strip of paper after the yellow loop and continue the pattern again. It should look like the picture above.

Pineapple Countdown Chain DIY

Keep on adding loops until you’ve reached the desired length of your countdown. These are also great for party decorations! I love how these turned out. My husband told me these cracked him up, but I think it got him pretty excited about our upcoming vacation!
