Stuck On You Valentines Printables

So I just shared about the Airplane themed Valentines Printables and now I'd like to share with you the Stuck On You Valentines Printable!  Yup, yup, I am most definitely a procrastinator so I didn't start making these printables until last night!  I found some sticky hand toys in a bin full of old Halloween favors (yup the same bin as the airplanes) and decided to make something to coordinate with them.  I got those favors from Oriental Trading and had an excess of them so now it's come to use!  But what's great about this printable is that you can use it with other types of favors too besides the sticky hand toys, like stickers, bubble gum and if you want to use it for an adult or someone who loves crafts...WASHI TAPE!  I love washi tape, anyone want to give me a valentine with washi tape?!

Airplane Themed Valentine’s Day Printables

Happy Valentine's Day!  I know these printables are coming a little late and I am most definitely a procrastinator but if you're looking for an easy and quick valentine's idea for your kids, you'll want to check these out!  I found some foam airplanes that I had from some past halloweens, bought from Oriental Trading, and decided to make some printables for them!  I am a fan of non-sweets for valentine's favors so if I didn't have the airplanes , I would have found some of those parachute toys, or sky themed stickers.  But candies would work too with these printables!  Enjoy and if you want a different themed valentine, you can check my "Stuck On You" and "Color My World" free valentine printables!

You Color My World & You Make Me Happy Valentine’s Day Printables

So for the last 2 years, I actually didn't give any Valentine's cards out for Kiggster's friends.  One, I felt they were too young to understand what it was anyways, two, I felt they probably didn't need more candy or other paraphernalia, and third, Valentine's Day always just crept up on me before I had time to think about it.  So this year, I was determined to do something for Kiggster's besties because she actually enjoys giving things to people and making some stuff.  So I decided since Kiggster's nickname sometimes is Rayne-bow, Rayne-drop and the like, I had use that theme when creating her Valentine's Day cards.  Since I didn't want to give out candy as I was sure there would be plenty going around already, I decided to go for homemade crayons instead.  However, these Valentine's cards would go well with store bought crayons also, which I have seen on sale right now at Michaels or sold in party packs for pretty … [Read more...]

DIY Upcycled Crayons Tutorial

This project can involve toddlers but would probably be better suited for an older child if you want them taking part in the whole thing. Since I didn't want to give candy as I was sure there would be plenty going around already, I decided to go for homemade crayons, just like the ones I'd seen on Pinterest...oh yeah, Pinterest addict here!  I did end up doing some revisions to the ones I saw online and if you go on pinterest and do a search for recycled crayons, you will pull up a ton of different sources.  I didn't have tiny oven-safe silicone molds and I also could not find them in stores so I had to improvise on the tutorials that I found.  Since this is a project that involved an oven, wax, and melting stuff, I made sure I read all the directions and went the conservative route!  This is what I ended up with and you'll see some * signs for lessons learned after the activity. Supplies: Around 20 broken or unused crayons, I had a mixture of … [Read more...]
