A Disney Frozen Birthday

Yesterday, we celebrated Princess Anna's birthday. Her birthday is actually in the summer, but having had a summer birthday, I know many people will be out of town for her birthday. Because of that reason, I wanted to make sure she had a successful birthday, so we just celebrated 6 months early. As a family, we will celebrate on her birthday, but her friends were able to celebrate with her this weekend. Her newest favorite Disney character is Princess Anna. If you couldn't tell. Anyway, because her favorite character is Princess Anna, of course we had to have a Disney…

Word Searches for Preschoolers and Young Elementary – FREE PRINTABLES!

Last week, we planned to stay at home all week and do some different home activities.  One activity I had on our bucket list for the summer was to do a word search or crossword puzzle.  I was somewhat limited, as the kids I was planning for are 3 and 6.  There's only so much they can do with a word search and a crossword puzzle. So after a bit of searching through some blogs, my favorite websites, and (of course!) Pinterest, I ended up with these: I found this Curious George Word Search on TeacherVision.com.  Every so often I…

I LOVE this printable placemat that I found at Parents Magazine website.  They usually have a lot of good resources for activities, crafts, printables, and plain old parenting advice.…

Summer Scavenger Hunt (with FREE Printable!)

I know it's been a while since my last post.  I must have had a crazy week, because it's been a blur and now I can't remember what on earth I did.  I can tell you I didn't do anything I had planned, that's for sure! I did spend most of the day planning for the next two weeks at home, searching activities, creating activities, moving plans around, etc.  One thing I was looking for was a summer scavenger hunt.  I couldn't find a whole lot online that I really liked, and I had my own things in mind anyway,…

Hello Summer!

Well, as I announced to my Facebook friends earlier today, as of today we are officially parents of a preschooler, an elementary schooler, a middle schooler, and a high schooler!  I don't know whether to be excited or scared! No matter how you look at it, one thing is true: it's summer, and the kids are out of school.  Now officially begins our Summer of Fun 2013!  I'm so excited for more first summer (mostly) at home!  You have seen my calendar already, so you know we are booked for more fun than we can handle.  We've already started some…
