Play Money Coins

DIY play money coins for your play kitchen. Super easy to make!

My kids love to play store, restaurant, tea party and all that jazz! Not only do they love the play food but they love the play money. They even use the pretend credit cards that come in the mail. The play money coins that you can sometimes find are great. The dollar bills, not so great. I always find the paper money crumpled up or ripped. When I try to throw it away but I can't because my kids NEED money. I was tired of the paper money so I convinced them to only use coins. However, many of those coins have become lost. They are gray which somehow makes them magically disappear. I decided to make my own play money coins so that they wouldn't get lost and we wouldn't need to use the … [Read more...]

My kids were out of school for 3 weeks in July. We (my kids and myself) were gone for pretty much that entire time. We had 2 family reunions, went to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon then all the way down to Carlsbad Caverns (stopping at many places to see in between), up to my parents cabin, swimming, rodeo, shooting bows and arrows....a lot of family time. We had SO much fun that we were exhausted at the end. We came home to a party, had one day to regroup and prepare for school then off we went for the new year. Oh no the fun didn't stop, we had another family reunion that next weekend and now this week we have family in town and we aren't done playing. Since we were gone for so long … [Read more...]

Lunch box jokes are fun for kids to take to school. Use the printable jokes for kids, cut out, and then slip one into your child's lunch box each day.

I have been wanting to create Lunch Box Jokes for over a year now. I finally have completed my desire and goal. My kids love telling jokes for kids. They try to find jokes kids can actually understand. School for us started this past Monday. There were two things my kids were excited to bring to school that first day; a teacher appreciation gift and a lunch box joke. For school this year I compiled five jokes for kids each week to coorespond with 5 school days. These jokes have been tested on my 3 elementary age kids. They say they "get" all these jokes so my hope is that your kids will also. Jokes for Kids - Lunch Box Jokes Print and cut out the jokes for kids.  Slip the jokes … [Read more...]

Teacher Appreciation for the Start of School

Start the new school year off with teacher appreciation diy gifts with free printable. Teacher gifts are good year round.

Teacher appreciation can be celebrated year round because our teachers work hard all year. My kids go back to school today in a new grade because we are on a year round schedule. If you have noticed I have been a little MIA because my kids have had 3 weeks for their summer and we were gone all but a handful of those days. I shared about the Junior Ranger Program we did while on a 10 day vacation. We have also done swimming, parties, family reunions, movies and anything else we could cram into that short time. I think they are ready to slow down and get back to a routine. My kids are always excited to get supplies to take to school to contribute to the classroom. We thought, why not begin the … [Read more...]
