End Of The Year Teacher’s Thank You Gift

Yesterday I shared with you an  idea for an infinity scarf teachers appreciation gift that included a simple sewing project.  Here is another quick and easy idea for those of you who don’t sew, or don’t have time to make a scarf before the end of the school year!  Stop and grab a nice bottle of nail polish in a shade that you think your child’s teacher will like.  Maybe a bright fun color for summer.  Then add a little tag that says:  “Thanks for helping me polish up my reading, writing, and much more!”  This would make a great little thank you for any...

Inexpensive Teachers Infinity Scarf Gift

Teachers are such an important part of our children’s lives and saying thank you to them is so important!  As the end of the school year approaches I have been thinking hard about a way to show them how much my kids have enjoyed having them as a teacher, and for me how much I appreciate them loving, teaching, and sharing in my children’s lives.  There are so many teachers appreciation gift ideas out there, but here is my take on a simple and inexpensive gift that my kids will be giving to their teachers this year to say Thank You to infinity for all that they do!  A simple DIY...

Repurposed Serving Tray To A Chalkboard Welcome Sign

Summertime is just around the corner and now that the weather is getting nice we are spending a ton of time outdoors.  Along with preparing the garden, doing some spring cleaning, and breaking out the summer decor we added a new welcome sign by the front door.  I received this serving tray almost 9 years ago as a wedding gift, and I bet I used it twice over those 9 years.  It was really  neat and nice, so I didn’t really want to get rid of it, so I decided I would just re purpose it into something that I would use and love.  A can of chalkboard paint and some painters tape took...

Traveling With Kids – Chip Clip Card Holder

My kids have loooooved playing card games since their first round of go fish!  We often enjoy card games on rainy days, game nights, and even on card trips.  When they were very young I noticed that they had a hard time viewing all of their cards at once without dropping them as they sorted through their stack, trying to figure out which card to play.  A stop at the dollar store was all we needed to to turn card games with toddlers into an easy and even “on the go” activity.  Using a large chip clip they can hold all of their cards so that they see them, but their competitors...

Kid’s Bird Nest Craft And Little Birdie Book Marks

Now that spring is officially here the kids are all about admiring the sweet little birds hopping around outside.  They seem thrilled to be chasing and “trying to catch” them as they move around the yard.  I’m not certain what they want to do with them once the catch them, but I am assuming they want to play with them as if they were little pets.  Luckily the kids have gotten no were near one, so I haven’t had to worry about it yet.   So,  I decided that we needed a fun craft project so the kids could make their own bird nests and birds to play with.  Here is a...
