If you have a plane enthusiast at home, these Plane Valentines are perfect for your little ones to pass out for valentines day. Staple these printables on top of a bag of a candy or a little plane toy and you’ve got an easy valentine ready to go!
Our family loves Star Wars, and my younger son is in major Star Wars mode right now. Whenever we go to the library, he’s always on the hunt for a Star Wars book even if we’ve checked it out before. For his Valentines, he wanted to pass out pencils as lightsabers, but I was thinking of how I could attach the “happy valentine’s day” part to it. Alas, I figured it out and love how these Star Wars Valentines came out! Super easy to put together too!
First, tape on the Lightsaber Pencil Wraps onto the eraser part of your pencil. I put a little tape on part of the pencil and the wrap in order to keep it from sliding off, and then wrapped the rest of the paper around and finished it off with another piece of tape.
Next, you’ll want to use an Exacto knife and make a little slit above the lightsaber, like pictured above. It is going to be bigger than the lightsaber in order for your pencil to fit through.
Put your pencil through the slit, leaving a little bit of the pencil behind the printable. Apply tape to keep it in place.
And that’s it! You’re kids are going to have lots of fun with these, and they’ll love pretending they have a mini lightsaber! My son loves using his pencil lightsaber to do his homework, and I’m guessing your little ones will too.
Ever since my son learned to read, he has been reading books non-stop. He loves it and will even take it to his bed at night before he falls asleep. I realize he is probably bringing it up with him because he’s trying to avoid going to sleep, but I am totally fine with it as long as he is quiet!
Since his sibling are younger than him and are constantly wanting to “read” the same book as his older brother, his bookmarks keep falling out and I always feel bad that they keep loosing his place. With Valentines Day coming up, and the constant battle with losing his bookmarks, I thought it would be perfect to make these magnetic bookmarks to pass out to his friends. These are the easiest Valentines to make, and might I add a very practical Valentine!
If you have a child that’s always wanting to buy something new, or wanting to make some money, this Printable Job Chart is one of the best ways to help your child keep track of the jobs they need to do in order to earn some money.
This past Christmas, my son had the opportunity to buy gifts for members of our family at school. My husband and I both agreed that if he wanted to buy gifts for everyone, he needed to learn the value of earning money and what it was like to spend his own money. He was totally for it, and we all agreed on what jobs he could do around the house and how much each would be worth. In order for him to keep track of what job he was doing and how much he was earning, I came up with this Job chart.
He loved it! Whenever he completed a chore, he marked it off in the box and would look at his chart to see what he could do next. During the week he would add up the boxes and see how much he had made so far and if he needed to make more money by doing more chores. At the end of the week he counted all his boxes and how much he made, and put it in the box under the date. It was great for me because I didn’t have to make sure I had money on the spot after he completed a chore, or make sure I always had quarters or dollar bills. Once the end of the week was completed, I’d go out and get him the money he earned.
What’s great about this printable, is you can actually edit the chores each week on the file before you print it off. In order to keep the same look as the chart above, download the font Moon Flower Bold. You can also use this Job Chart as a way for your kids to earn screen/game time. This is a great way to help your kids get started and learn the value of earning money.
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.
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!
First you’ll need to print out the letter on both sides and trim it down.
Fold the letter twice so that the opening of the letter looks like the picture above.
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!
