Hot Chocolate Valentines Printable

hot chocolate valentines day card

It has been a cold winter for us in Washington. Last week, it was so cold they pushed back school 2 hours due to ice on the road, and my kindergartner already starts school at 9:15. It was a crazy week, and all this cold has made me want lots hot chocolate. We love hot chocolate in our house and my kids get pretty excited to drink it whenever we have a chili morning. With Valentine’s Day coming up and knowing it will still be pretty cold, I thought it would be fun to put the two together! And as many of my printables, it’s easy to assemble.

 

Here’s what you’ll need:
-Hot Chocolate packets (I used the swiss miss 7.3 oz packets)

-Washi tape

Screen Shot 2017-01-16 at 9.10.31 PM1. When printing out the printable, make sure you DO NOT hit “Fit to Page” “Fit to Scale” in your printer settings when you print. This will throw off how you cut your printable and the print on the front will not be centered. Make sure you select “Actual Size”.

2. Cut down the middle of the page and fold it in half – for those of you who still remember the elementary term “hamburger style”.

3. After you’ve folded your print in half, unfold it and tape your hot chocolate at the top (and bottom if you prefer, mine stayed intact with just one) of the inside.

4. Fold it back up and tape it shut at the top with washi tape, and totally optional – place some washi tape at the bottom to give it a little extra something. And that’s it!

If you prefer to save some paper, I’ve also included a page of tags to print off and you can wrap a tag around a packet of hot chocolate with bakers twin or use the washi tape to put on the front of your packet.

Night Before Christmas Gift Tags

I’m know we’re not the only ones, but it has always been a tradition in my home for each kid to open up one gift on Christmas Eve, our choice. It was so fun, and made it that much more exciting to see what was left under our tree the next morning. My husband’s family also got to open one gift before Christmas, but they were always pajamas. When I joined their family, I loved the idea that you would be getting a new set of pajamas each year (or every other year – that’s how we’ve worked out Thanksgiving and Christmas with our families).

While still carrying on my families tradition of opening one gift on Christmas Eve, I’ve converted to my husbands family tradition with making it a new set of pajamas each year for my kids. In order to figure out which gift our kids get to open the night before Christmas, I’ve made these gift tags to make it easier to find. You will no longer need to make extra notes on your gift tags reminding you to “OPEN ME ON CHRISTMAS EVE,” buy an extra roll of wrapping paper to determine which ones are the “night before Christmas” gifts (unless you enjoy doing that which isn’t a bad idea) or set them aside in another room until it’s time open.

I’d love to see how you decorate your gifts using these gift tags on Instagram or Facebook! I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

We’ve Been Booed Printable

weve-been-booed-printableI have never done this before, so I’m pretty excited to do it this year! If you’ve never heard about the “Boo” game, it’s pretty easy! All you have to do is stick a couple of goodies inside a bag, trick or treat bucket, etc. and print out 3 copies of this printable. The “We’ve been Booed” sign goes on the outside, and the instructions along with the remaining two copies you printed off goes inside your goodie bag.

halloween-printable-tag

It’s National Popcorn Popping month, and with Halloween around the corner, I’ve decided to “dress up my popcorn.” With all this candy floating around the stores, it’s hard to not want to buy any before Halloween, am I right? So if you’re like me, or have some extra candy lying around, you’ll want to try this popcorn recipe, because it is pretty stinkin’ good! And believe me when I say I will be making this again after my kids get their haul on Halloween.

Things you’ll need:

Original SkinnyPop Popcorn (4.4 oz) or 2 bags of microwave popcorn

Orange Candy Melts

2 Cups Chopped Chocolate (mixed variety)

Sprinkles

First of all, meet Danny. This recipe has been Danny tested and Danny approved! And his approval is important since he is our popcorn eating machine! ๐Ÿ™‚

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-3

Pour half of your popcorn in a bowl and pour melted candy melts over the popcorn and mix well. Make sure you cover as much popcorn as you can with the candy melts.

Lay out your chocolate covered popcorn on a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil and sprinkle as little or as many sprinkles your heart desires. Stick it in the freezer for 5 minutes or until the chocolate has hardened.

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-0

While your chocolate covered popcorn is in the freezer, roughly chop your candy. My mix included Twix, 3 Musketeers, Snickers, and Milkway, but you can use whatever chocolate candy you have.

trick-or-treat-popcorn-munch-5

Pull out your chocolate covered popcorn and start mixing in the rest of the ingredients in a large bowl. If some of your chocolate popcorn is stuck together, go ahead and break it up, it doesn’t have to be perfect. If you’re serving this at a party, set aside some sprinkles and chocolate and sprinkle it on top.

Or if you’re handing this treat out to friends, use some bakers twine and this Halloween Printable to hand them out with! I hope you’re enjoying this time of year as much as we are!

4th of July Banner

4TH OF JULY BANNER

We are getting dec’d out in our home for 4th of July… sort of. I’ve always been a slacker at decorations during the holidays, not because I don’t want them. I blame the hubby, and the fact that sometimes I like to spend money on other things that last all year long. But, as we get further into our marriage, I hope to have a bazillion decorations set up for every holiday.

But, this banner is helping our home look more festive, and it’s perfect for the upcoming Olympics this August! You can keep this baby up for another month!

St. Patrick’s Day Survival Kit Printable

ST. PATRICK'S DAY SURVIVAL KIT

We aren’t very big into celebrating St. Patrick’s Day in our house, but as a kid, I’ve always hated the idea of getting pinched if I didn’t wear green. Green also wasn’t (and still isn’t) my favorite color so I usually had nothing in my closet for St. Patty’s day. Fortunately for my kids, they are big Oakland A’s fans and they have no problem sporting their green and gold pride. With that being said, I still thought it would be fun to give them a little goodie bag of knick knacks to keep them pinch proof on this upcoming green holiday, and I’m sure you’re kids (or friends) will love getting this St. Patrick’s Day Survival kit too!

ST. PATTY'S DAY SURVIVAL KIT

It’s the easiest thing to put together. Just round up some St. Patrick’s Day goodies from the Dollar store, or Target’s $1-$3 spot. Could be anything from a green necklace, temporary tattoos, stickers, buttons, nail polish, socks, etc. Stick them inside a Party bag (I used 4in x 9.5in / 10cm x24cm), and seal them up with these St. Patrick’s Day Survival Kit. Your kids and friends are going to love getting this, especially if they completely forgot to wear green on St. Patty’s Day!
