Halloween Trick or Treat Printables

Every year on Halloween, we have a small block party and take to the neighborhood for our annual Trick or Treating. Since the whole family goes, we are never home to distribute any candy, but we always leave a big bowl and put the honor system in place. Last year, I made these adorable Halloween signs to place next to our candy cauldron and since Bunbun was new to Girl Scouts, I incorporated that as well.

Trick or Treat: How to make your own BOO Kit and #BOOItForward

Yes!!! It’s that time of year again. The weather is changing and the leaves are falling. Neighbors are taking out their Halloween decorations and sprucing up the neighborhood in preparation of the big night. As a child, my favorite holiday was Halloween. I was ‘almost’ a Halloween baby, so my Birthday and Halloween are within a few short days of each other. I absolutely love decorating and sharing in on the Halloween fun with the neighborhood children and of course my own.

When we purchased our first home back in 2012 the tradition of BOO’ing had just begun in the neighborhood. To join in the spooky spirit of giving, we made a BOO kit full of candy and goodies to bring to our neighbor’s house. We left it at the doorstep along with a card explaining what it meant to be Boo’d and an extra to encourage them to continue the cycle of “boo’ing.” They were then left guessing who left the tub of treats and something good to eat. While our identity remained a secret, it was up to them to pay it forward and create their own BOO kit for for an unsuspecting neighbor or friend.

A Witching Good Night Glow Stick Tags

I have been sucked into the vortex of Halloween multiple times this week. I have literally stocked up on decorations I don’t need and decorated the house more than a month in advance. Some may think I’m on a roll, but my husband thinks I’m nuts! While on a shop this week at my local Target, the Dollar Spot ever so softly whispered my name. I couldn’t believe how much they had for Halloween in that section! I think I spent about $55 in that area alone. But who’s counting?

Savings at Publix: Back to School Superhero Snack Station

Back to School Superhero Snack Station with Free Superhero Girls Printable

Week two of first grade brought homework. And lot’s of it! Bunbun has 10 spelling words, reading homework and a cute little about me poster project to complete. Last week, I purchased a new desk for myself and gave her my old one. I set her up with a little writing/art station using a bin I had purchased a while back. I took advantage of the back to school Savings at Publix and stocked up on some crayons, markers, colored pencils, glue sticks and scissors as well. I added scrap paper to another compartment and voila! Bunbun loves her new little set-up and it allows her to be creative with no restrictions on art mediums.

Back to School Sign Template and Tutorial

Wow! Can you believe it’s that time of year again? Our children our gearing up go to back to school! I have to admit, I have had Bunbun’s school supplies purchased and ready to go for a few weeks now. Her uniforms came in last week and all she needs is new sneakers. I honestly am not ready to send her back just yet. Can we just have a few more weeks? Months even? We have really been enjoying one another, keeping busy and spending time with friends. But, I guess we can’t keep them home forever, right?

Every year, we do a sign for the first day of school. This year, we are changing things up a bit and I am happy to share my files with you!

Easy Clothespin Princess Dolls

Summer has been quite the struggle (insert sigh). We ended up keeping Bunbun home and ditching the camp this year. It’s really been great having both kids home and spending time with them, but it’s been super difficult to keep her busy. My little guy is so easy going for being only three. He will find something to keep himself busy in any situation; Bunbun always wants something to do. A craft, a game, a movie, swimming…something! She just has to be busy. She loves to collect things and is currently into the Shopkins craze, which is probably going to make me broke very soon.
