Santa + Reindeer Gift Tag – Kids Crafts

Santa and Reindeer Gift Tags Kids Crafts

My kids love to do whatever they can to help with the holidays. They love to decorate the tree, make cookies, and any other holiday craft we can find or come up with. I thought it would be fun for them to make some gift tags to put on presents for their teachers and our family.

I love that my kids had fun putting these together and how cute they look on the Christmas gifts! The best part, they don’t have to be perfect and they still look pretty cute.

Here’s what you’ll need:

If you don’t have a Cricut, I also have a printable file that you can print onto your cardstock and cut out the pieces.

For the Reindeer Gift Tag:

Glue your antlers onto the brown gift tag, making sure some of the antlers are coming off the tag like pictured above.

Add your googly eyes with modge podge or hot glue (which ever sticks better onto the paper. I had success with both, but sometimes the modge podge wasn’t sticking).

Santa Letter Printable

Printable-Dear-Santa-Letter

I’ve been wanting to make a Santa Letter Printable for a while, and my kids were so excited when I was finally done. They’ve been anxiously waiting to write Santa a letter and send it in the mail.

When I was helping my 3 year write his letter, I asked if he had been naughty or nice this year, and his first response was “Naughty.” It made me laugh, and he recognized that he definitely had some rough patches this year, but it was perfect to go over the things he was trying to improve on this year.

These letters are the perfect way to get your kids excited about Christmas and let Santa know what they’re wishing for this year. It’s super easy to put together and you don’t need an envelope since it’s a tri-fold letter!

Santa Letter

First you’ll need to print out the letter on both sides and trim it down.

Santa Letter Printable

Fold the letter twice so that the opening of the letter looks like the picture above.

Dear Santa Letter Printable

And the “to” and “from” side look like this.

Place a stamp on your card and they’re ready to send it off to Santa!

Leftover Thanksgiving Tags

Thanksgiving-Leftover-Tag-Printables

I’m very excited that Thanksgiving is just a couple of weeks away, and while normally I’m not a huge leftover fan, the Thanksgiving leftovers are an exception. My favorite sides from the whole meal are most definitely the stuffing and rolls. I am usually the first one to the fridge to start eating those two the next day, but luckily with these Leftover Thanksgiving tags I won’t have to worry about anyone in my family eating my favorite sides! I’m sharing these Thanksgiving Printables over at Eighteen25.

Printable Thanksgiving Leftover Tag

If you have a big family over for Thanksgiving, these labels and containers will be helpful at sorting out all the leftovers at the end of the night. You can use any type of brown kraft box or even an ice cream container to put your leftovers in and tape on these Thanksgiving Tags with Washi tape, or print them on Avery Sticker labels before the big meal. To make it easier for families taking home multiple containers, grab a basic kraft bag and place the Leftover Printable on the outside of the bag and label which family it belongs to. Grab your printables now to make the end of the night a little bit easier!

Halloween Donut Tag Printable

Out of Treats Halloween Printable

It’s almost Halloween, can you believe it? We are counting down the days and are excited about going to all the Halloween festivities these next couple of weeks! We have 2 trunk or treats we’re going to back to back next week and my kids will have candy for days! I have a massive sweet tooth, so it will be really tricky to avoid all those treats!

OUT OF TREATS SIGNSpeaking of treats, last year I shared this Out of Treats Halloween Sign over at Eighteen25 and it worked out perfectly at our house. As soon as all our candy was gone, I switched the sign and nobody knocked on our door when the “Out of Treats” sign was up. It was great! It’s super easy to make and you only need a picture frame and ribbon to complete this look!

Uncommon Goods Christmas Gift Ideas + Holiday Shopping List Printable

I know it’s a little crazy to be thinking about Christmas when we haven’t even had Halloween yet, but my husband and I have been talking about what we’re going to get everybody for Christmas. I’m pretty sure my mother in law does her Christmas shopping as soon as school starts, something that I wish I could be better about! We’ve been busy working on our budget for Christmas this year and have been putting money aside at the end of the summer so that we aren’t left stranded this holiday!

Taking my 1 year old into the store has been challenging lately so I’ve resorted to shopping online as much as possible. While trying to figure out what we want to get everybody for Christmas, I came across a site called Uncommon Goods. They have Christmas gifts for everybody and all of their products are cruelty free. None of their products contain leather, feathers or fur and have also featured products that contain recycled components. Another great thing about Uncommon Goods is they have a passion for giving back and created the Better Give Back Program. When you make a purchase through their website, Uncommon Goods donates $1 to a non-profit organization that you choose at checkout.

I don’t know about you, but I have a hard time finding gifts for my family, especially the men. My kids are generally pretty easy, and are helpful in letting us know what they want for Christmas. If you’re struggling with some ideas, I’ve found some great Christmas Gifts for Men and Women you have to check out:

Halloween Lunch Box Jokes

Lunch-Box-Jokes-for-Halloween

My 1st grader is a total goofball and knows it. He also loves hearing jokes and tries to make up his own knock knock jokes even if they aren’t very good. Now that he’s able to read, I thought it would be fun to put some Halloween Jokes in his lunches when he goes to school so he can get a bit of a laugh during the day. Now he can try and make his friends laugh in the lunch room too!

Halloween-Lunch-Box-Joke-Printables

All of the answers are on the bottom of the of each cut out and upside down to make it a little trickier for your kiddo to see the answer. I like to print these Halloween Lunch Box Jokes onto cardstock so they don’t get destroyed in their lunch box. Scroll down below to grab your own lunchbox printables for your kids!

October Wallpaper + Printables

October-Halloween-Calendar-Wallpaper-and-Printables

Who’s ready for the holidays to commence? The 1st of October means, to me at least, that the beginning of the holidays are finally about to start! I remember thinking last year I was just ready for them to end, but it’s amazing how another year flies by and I’m ready to get back into the holiday spirit!

This month’s wallpaper is a tad bit difference as I’ve added a Halloween Countdown Printable into the mix! You can print it out, frame it and use a chalk paint marker to write the remaining days until Halloween. My kids are so excited to dress up, our second kid can hardly contain his enthusiasm. We purchased Danny’s costume at the beginning of September (at little too early, right?) but we couldn’t pass it up since it was the costume he really wanted and we just wanted to get it out of the way. Our kids are going to be “what they want to be when they grow up” costumes. JD is going to be a baseball player, Danny will be a pilot, and Riley will be Doc McStuffins (a cuter version of a doctor). My husband has had their careers all lined up even before they were born, it is insane but somehow it has managed to work for the first two!! We’ll see how Riley feels in a couple of years.

Hopefully, these wallpapers + printables will get you into the Halloween spirit of things! Enjoy the month of October!

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.

Dad's Stache Father's Day Gift

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. 🙂

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. 🙂
