red, white and blue badgeI thought it would be nice to be able to display part of the Pledge of Allegiance in my home to help us Celebrate the Fourth of July, our American Independence Day.  For some reason, these pictures turned out to be not as vibrant as the printable is in real life.  The entry area in my home is in a dark north facing area so getting a good picture in here is hard ;).

But anyways, I digress…You can use this printable to display in your home to add to your Fourth of July Decor, or use it to help add some festiveness to you Fourth of July Party/BBQ.

I made this printable so that it prints out for an 8×10 photo frame.  If you want it to be a smaller size than just change the percentage that you print it at.  To download the printable, simply click on the link below:

I decided to make a Lemonade Kit gift idea. This is so simple, but a really fun gift to give and receive. The gift includes everything you need to be able to whip up some amazing Homemade Lemonade. Simply gather up the following supplies:

  • Glass Pitcher (I found mine at Home Goods for $7.99)
  • 6-7 fresh Lemons
  • 1 cup Sugar (in a plastic baggie)
  • Baker’s twine
  • free printables

I placed the bag of sugar in the bottom of the pitcher and then filled it up with the lemons. Then I simply attached the printable Homemade Lemonade Kit Label and the Recipe to the outside of the pitcher. You will want to include these so that the gift recipient can be able to make the Homemade Lemonade by following the directions and just adding water.

I also made some printable Homemade Lemonade Labels for some cute Lemonade jars if you would like to use those as well. You could give a couple of the empty glasses with the Homemade Lemonade Kit or just make the Lemonade and give away some jars of Homemade Lemonade.

A simple and easy gift that anyone would love to receive. I know I would! I think I will be giving these away as teacher gifts at the end of the school year. A great way to say goodbye to school and welcome the summer!

Thanksgiving Game—Turkey Feathers

Entertaining the kids on Thanksgiving morning while preparing for your feast can be challenging.  Why not let them entertain themselves with this fun Thanksgiving Game? 

Thanksgiving Game e wm

The premise of the game is fairly simple.  Simple enough that even the youngest kids can play.  Each player takes a turkey card and gets 6 clothes pins or…Turkey Feathers.  Each player takes turns rolling once dice.   Then you simply put a feather on the number that you rolled.  If you roll a number you already have a feather on, then your turn is over.  First person to get all the feathers on their turkey wins.  Pretty simple right?  As I am typing this, I realized it might be fun to actually write some of the things you are thankful for on the turkey feathers themselves to help your little ones to be thinking of them while they are playing the game.  It would add a little more meaning to the game as well.

As far as making the game all you will need to do is paint some clothes pins in some fun colors.  Each player will need 6 clothes pins, so depending on how many players you have (this game can have lots so it is perfect for big family get togethers).  Then since I had some fun Martha Stewart Glitter Paint (which is sold exclusively at Michael’s), I painted a layer of glitter over the regular paint colors to give the Turkey Feathers some pizazz!

You will also need to print a card for each player.  You can find the free download for the game board here:

Then to make them sturdy, I glued them onto some thin cardboard (or you could use some chipboard) with some Mod Podge on the front and back.  This will help them to last through multiple games with little hands and allow them to be strong enough to hold up the turkey feathers.

Hope you enjoy them.  I would love to hear from you if you download the games and plan on using them for Thanksgiving this year.  This helps me to gage the kind of projects I share with you and the things that you would maybe like to see more of!
