Bubble Wrap Advent Calendar

 Looking for a cute, clever & inexpensive advent calendar?

What you'll need:
Round label stickers
Large bubble wrap
Sharpie Pen

Using the bubble wrap, cut out a Christmas tree shape. Take the labels and have your little ones write out numbers 1-24. Place one sticker on each bubble. You can place them in numerical order or to make it more of a hunt, place them in random order.

Who can resist the joy of popping bubble wrap? I personally have no self control, so I'll leave this one for my daughter to enjoy! Haha!

Elf On A Shelf Planner

This year we're going to start the Elf On A Shelf tradition. While I'm so very excited - I'm also beyond overwhelmed at the thought of trying to plan the amazing mischief our little elf can get into. 
(thank heavens for Pinterest whenever I stumped!)

Today I found this helpful Elf On A Shelf planner from Lovely Living. There's a sheet to jot down crazy antics ideas, a calendar to plot the daily events and a planner to keep track of necessary supplies needed.

Go HERE to download your copy! Let the shennanigan's begin!

I'll be posting photos of our elf's ideas so stay tuned!

Thanksgiving Turkey Toes Treat

I wanted to create a fun Thanksgiving treat for the kids table. While Halloween shopping, inspiration hit when I saw the brown & orange version of candy corn. Forget the drumstick, it's all about the 'Turkey Toes' this year. Ha!

I made these Turkey Toes tags using a fun chevron turkey image I created. With a tag paper punch & some card stock, create the tag shape. Using a distress ink pad, create a gritty, aged effect. Add a hole with a paper punch and attach some raffia ribbon.

Add about two dozen candy corns to a treat bag & you are all set!

Turkey Hand Tee

Here's a modern twist on the Thanksgiving hand turkey!
My daughter and I made this a few years ago and we had so much fun I had to share it again!

Look at that sweet little face! I can't believe how fast she's growing up!

Three years later & she had to squeeze into the shirt one last time for some silly photos!

We followed the tutorial from Treasures For Tots as our guide. Using fabric scraps, ribbons & buttons, we made the whole thing in less than one hour & the best part... No sewing involved (woot)!

Now go create some memories of their sweet little hands and make your little one a fun tee to rock this Thanksgiving!

Pilgrim Hat Crayon Holder

Thanksgiving is right around the corner & I need some projects to keep my little one busy while we're visiting family. Paper placemats & this pilgrim hat filled with crayons is sure to do the trick!

What you'll need:
Black cups
Black paper
Scrapbook paper
Hot glue gun

Simply cut the bottom out of a black cup (I only had white cups so I sprayed mine with chalkboard paint). Hot glue the cup upside-down to a circle shaped piece of black paper. Cut a band for around the cup & add a scrapbook paper square for the buckle. Simple!

 These would also be adorable at each place setting to hold disposable silverware setting or fill them with candy treats!

Happy Thanksgiving!
