FREE Valentine Bookmark Printable

 If you have a child who loves all things reading, this FREE Valentine Bookmark Printable will be the perfect card for them to share with classmates this year!


If you've been around for more than two seconds over here, you'll know Kyle is obsessed with books and reading. When most other kids were playing with toys over Christmas break, Kyle had observed that he had 109 books in his bedroom, and was determined to read all of them before he returned back to school in January.

With Valentine's right around the corner, I thought it would be so fun and perfect to make a free Valentine bookmark printable to share with all of you, and for Kyle to handout at school. Now admittedly, Kyle found some Minecraft Valentine's that he's really jazzed to give his friends, but he has several teachers this school year, and he's 100% giving these bookmark Valentine's to them at their classroom party. 


Free Valentine Bookmark Printable:

This Valentine bookmark printable is pretty simple to make and cut out. There are two different color formats, a pink and purple template, and a red and blue template. To make these you'll simply print them out on card stock, and then using scissors or a paper cutter, cut along the thick black line to cut them out.

Best All in One Wireless Printer:

I bought the Epsom EcoTank Printer back in February 2020 and it's by far been one of the best purchases I've made. While the initial cost might be high, I can say that I've used this a ton and have not had to purchase new ink yet! The ink that the printer comes with is enough ink to print 4,000 colored pages and 7,500 black and white images. It is seriously the best feeling to not have to worry about running out of ink and being able to use your printer whenever you need it!

Nativity Advent Calendar

This free Nativity Advent Calendar is the perfect printable to make with your family this holiday season to help you celebrate the birth of our Savior and the true reason for the season.

I used to make an advent calendar for our family every year, and then the last two years our kids had advent calendars gifted to them, so I didn't make one. This year I decided to try my hand at making one again, and thought it would be fun to share it with all of you! This free printable nativity advent calendar is the perfect way to count down to Christmas and remember the birth of our Savior and the true reason why we celebrate this holiday.

Nativity Advent Calendar:

This nativity advent calendar can be printed from the comfort of your own home. There is a scripture for each day that you can read with your family, and then from there you can discuss as a family what is happening in the scriptures and break it down for young children to understand.

I simply wrote which scripture to read, and didn't type them out because I know so many people read different translations of the bible and I wanted to give families the opportunity to read whichever version works best in their home.

How to Make This Nativity Advent Calendar:

For this project you will need a printer, scissors, glue stick, tape, and string. 

To make this advent calendar you're going to need a printer to print out all the papers. You're going to print 8 pages of the star sheet, and then just one copy of each of the scripture pages. 

From there you're going to cut out all 24 of your stars, and then cut out around each of the scripture squares. If you cut as close to the holly wreath as possible on each of the scripture verses, you'll be able to glue them onto the back of each of the stars like I did here.

I made sure all of my stars were in rotating color order, "gold, green, red, gold, green, red, etc...", and then used a long piece of twine that I tapped onto the back of each star to form it into a garland in number order.

How to use the Nativity Advent Calendar:

I hung the garland onto my wall, and then each day leading up to Christmas we'll take one of the stars off and read the accompanying scripture and discuss it together as a family. I used stars as the shape for the calendar because the wise men followed a star to Christ. Likewise, we can follow these stars throughout the month of December to follow the journey to the birth of Christ.

How to Set a Table for Thanksgiving

Setting a table for Thanksgiving doesn't have to be a complicated process, and you can get everything you need right from your local dollar store! 

We've had quite a few Thanksgiving's at home by ourselves, and it's looking like we'll be doing that again this year as well. If you're wondering how to set a table for Thanksgiving, you've come to the right place! You can decorate a table for Thanksgiving with inexpensive pieces from your local Dollar Tree, without breaking the bank, and still walk away with a high end look!

How to Set A Table for Thanksgiving:

Decorating a table for Thanksgiving can be super easy! To start you're going to want to find something to use as a tablecloth. I recommend going to the craft store and getting a big piece of lace that you can use universally for all holidays as a base. Then you're going to want to get a long piece of burlap that you can use as a runner, again likely to be found at a craft store.

Next you're going to head to your local Dollar Tree where you can pick up some plates! I purchased these small white salad plates, the red plates, and the gold chargers all at Dollar Tree several years ago, and they've not only held up well, but you can still purchase the same designs this year too! 

When you place these on your table you're going to layer them with the gold charger on the bottom, then your red plate, and then your white salad plate on top. It's super easy and comes together for only $3 per person!

Drink ware is another great find at Dollar Tree. We purchased these tall glasses there years ago and are what we use for any holiday meal in our home. They're beautifully designed and made, and elevate your space for super cheap! I love how they give the look of real crystal without the hefty pricetag!

I love a good centerpiece, but these can definitely get pricey. The one shown here was originally $50 from Michael's but I only paid $25 after one of their half off coupons! Never go to the craft store without those coupons, it will save you so much money. If you want a fall centerpiece for even less money, check out the DIY I made last year on a budget.

Once everything was said and done, I spent about $60 putting this entire table together five years ago, and I've been able to use it every Thanksgiving since. It's been a great small investment up front that has lasted the test of time throughout the years. I especially love that these products are all annual products that most stores carry, so even though this was originally put together five years ago, you can still create the same look on a budget this year too!

Thanksgiving Treat Bags| Hand Turkey Treats

Thanksgiving Treat Bags are the perfect dessert to have for young children at Thanksgiving. These Thanksgiving treat bags made with popcorn and M&Ms will be the perfect addition to your holiday.

In the spirit of making Thanksgiving a fun holiday for kids who don't love all the Thanksgiving things, these Thanksgiving treat bags in the shape of hand turkeys would be the perfect addition to your holidays plans. I love that these treat bags take very minimal effort (although sorting M&Ms is like watching paint dry), and you can even get your kids to join in on the fun!

Thanksgiving treat bags. Hand turkey Thanksgiving treats. Thanksgiving treats for kids. Thanksgiving desserts. Thanksgiving dinner treats. Elegant Thanksgiving desserts. Fun Thanksgiving treats appetizers. Chocolate Thanksgiving desserts. #thanksgiving #fall #treats #dessert #kids

Hand Turkey Thanksgiving Treat Bags:

These Thanksgiving treat bags come together with very few supplies. Simply get some m&ms, plastic gloves, popcorn, an elastic hair tie, and you can put these bags together in just a few minutes. Even better if you have small children who want to be involved in the dinner making process, set them up at the table to make some of these while they wait for other guests to arrive. They'll love being big helpers, and there really is little room for error with this project. 

Best Plastic Gloves for Treat Bags:

For these Thanksgiving treat bags you're going to want to use clear plastic, non-latex, non-powdered gloves. I bought these at Walmart and got about 120 for under $2. However, I bought adult size gloves and quickly realized that used up a lot of M&Ms. I would recommend finding some child size plastic gloves.

Candy Variations for Thanksgiving Treat Bags:

I used M&Ms for my Thanksgiving treat bags, but you could totally switch this up with a lot of different things. Reese's pieces would be a great option since they're already fall colors. You could also use candy corn, Sixlets, Skittles, plain chocolate chips, the sky is really the limit!

How to Make Hand Turkey Thanksgiving Treat Bags:

To make these treat bags you're simply going to sort out all your M&Ms by color, and then put each color into one of the fingers of your plastic bag. Once your fingers are filled, put your popcorn into the middle section, and then tie it off with a small hair elastic. If you don't have hair elastics you could simply tie a small knot at the bottom, but the elastics make it much easier!

If you want to take these treat bags to the next level, you could totally glue a google eye, and a small orange paper triangle onto them to make them look like a full blown turkey. Or be lazy like me and know your children will appreciate these, even without the extras.

Thanksgiving Treat Bags| Hand Turkey Treats

Thanksgiving Treat Bags are the perfect dessert to have for young children at Thanksgiving. These Thanksgiving treat bags made with popcorn and M&Ms will be the perfect addition to your holiday.
Prep time: 10 MinTotal time: 10 Min

Ingredients

  • Classic M&Ms* See note
  • Clear Plastic Bags 
  • Popcorn 
  • Clear Hair Elastics

Instructions

  1. Start by sorting out all of your M&Ms by color. 
  2. Then place each color of M&Ms into the fingers of one of your gloves, until the finger section is filled. 
  3. Repeat this for all the M&M colors and finger sections. 
  4. Once the finger sections of your glove are filled, then pour the popcorn into the remaining open section of your glove. 
  5. Finally, tie it off at the bottom with a small hair elastic and you're finished. 
  6. Repeat this process for as many bags that you need to fill. 

Notes:

One shareable size bag of M&Ms was enough to fill one adult size glove. I recommend trying to find kids sized gloves to use less M&Ms. Purchase as much M&Ms and popcorn as you think you'll need to fill your gloves!

Turkey cupcakes are the perfect Thanksgiving treat for kids who want to enjoy a holiday treat. These turkey cupcakes are made with a boxed cake mix, nutter butter cookies, candy corn, and some creativity.


Holidays are so much fun to celebrate with kids, but I often find my kids don't enjoy eating pie or the other traditional Thanksgiving desserts. These turkey cupcakes are such a fun way for kids to celebrate Thanksgiving with something their little taste buds will enjoy. If you are going to be with children this Thanksgiving, consider making a batch of these super easy turkey cupcakes!

How to Paint Bathroom Cabinets

 Painting bathroom cabinets is a pretty simple weekend project that only has three simple steps. If you can tape, sand, and paint, you can paint bathroom cabinets.


Derek and I are no stranger to painting cabinets. We've hired it out and paid someone else to do it, we've done it on our own with a paint sprayer, and we've painted by hand twice. I can honestly say my preferred method so far has been painting them by hand on our own.

We paid professionals to paint our kitchen cabinets in Georgia, and they started chipping basically the same week they were done. When we bought our last house before this current one, we used a paint sprayer for our cabinets but it left them with a weird texture that can happen if you're not an expert with a paint sprayer and know exactly how to dial it in correctly. 

How to paint bathroom cabinets. How to paint bathroom cabinets without sanding. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Waterproof paint for bathroom cabinets. How to seal painted bathroom cabinets. #diy #Home #Bathroom #remodel #Paint #cabinets

We've done this hand painting method twice now and both times we've had consistent even results, no chipping, and it's held up perfectly! 

How to Paint Bathroom Cabinets:

To paint bathroom cabinets you're going to tape off all the walls. Unscrew the doors and drawers, sand everything down, wipe with a tak cloth, and then paint with 2-3 coats of your favorite satin finish paint. After everything is dried you'll reassemble your vanity, and you're finished! It really is such a simple project and the results have turned out perfectly for us the two times we've done this project. 

What Supplies Do You Need To Paint Bathroom Cabinets?

Best Paint for Bathroom Cabinets:

We've used Behr Marquee Satin Enamel (color matched to Benjamin Moore Hale Navy) paint from The Home Depot for both of the bathroom vanities in our current home. It's a paint and primer in one which is why we don't prime the cabinets in this project, so it saves you that step. The finish holds up really well in the bathroom and wipes clean easily without being way too shiny like a semigloss paint. This paint was recommended to me by someone else who has used and loved it, and although we only have three months of wear on the paint at the time of writing this, I can say that we have no chips or issues! I'll be sure to come back and update this over time, but we're super happy with how this is holding up!

Complete Steps for Painting Bathroom Cabinets:

To paint bathroom cabinets, you're first going to need to tape off your vanity from the floor, the walls, and the counter top above it. This will ensure you get nice crisp lines, and that you won't get paint where you don't want it. 

After everything is taped off, remove the doors and drawers and put all their accompanying screws into a zip lock bag. This way you'll have them when you need to reassemble everything later. 


With those things out of the way you're ready to start sanding. You're going to sand down your doors, drawers, and base cabinet with 220 grit sand paper. This is enough to take the old finish off of the cabinet, and will give the new paint something to grab onto. 

How to paint bathroom cabinets. How to paint bathroom cabinets without sanding. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Waterproof paint for bathroom cabinets. How to seal painted bathroom cabinets. #diy #Home #Bathroom #remodel #Paint #cabinets

Once you're done sanding everything really well, you'll grab a tak cloth to wipe everything down. The tak cloth is a super sticky piece of fabric that will grab and wipe away all the sanded sawdust so that it doesn't ruin your paint finish. 

Next take your doors and drawers out to the garage and set them onto painter tripods. This keeps them up off the ground while you're painting, but doesn't leave an imprint in the paint of your door or drawer. You'll need four painter tripods per door/drawer so that everything has a stable surface while you're working. 


Now you're ready to paint! I use a two inch angle brush to get into the detailed edging on the cabinet doors, and areas on the vanity that the roller is too large for and cannot reach. Once I've brushed everything in with my angled brush, I use the 4 inch foam paint roller for the rest. Always start on the backside of your cabinet doors and drawers so that the last coat you finish is on the front.

How to paint bathroom cabinets. How to paint bathroom cabinets without sanding. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Waterproof paint for bathroom cabinets. How to seal painted bathroom cabinets. #diy #Home #Bathroom #remodel #Paint #cabinets

I find it best to start with the vanity, and then go out to the garage to paint the doors and drawers, and then go back inside to paint the vanity again, and then back to the garage to flip the doors and drawers over and paint their other side. This just helps to keep everything moving and so that I'm not constantly washing brushes in between coats a million times. 

How to paint bathroom cabinets. How to paint bathroom cabinets without sanding. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Best paint for bathroom cabinets. Waterproof paint for bathroom cabinets. How to seal painted bathroom cabinets. #diy #Home #Bathroom #remodel #Paint #cabinets

Always paint with thin coats to ensure a smooth finish and allow for about an hour of dry time between coats before starting your next coat. I have never sanded in between coats, but if you have lines and feel like you need to, then sand between coats. Just know I didn't and I don't regret that decision.

Once everything has three coats of paint and has had plenty of time to dry and your doors, drawers, and vanity are not sticky to the touch, reassemble your vanity. After we paint a vanity we always put felt furniture pad stickers on the inside of the corner of the doors to ensure the painted door won't stick to the painted vanity. 

Note: We did not use a top coat to finish these. We didn't on our bathroom in our last house and they held up fine, and these ones so far have held up fine without as well. 


That is everything you need to know about how we painted our bathroom cabinets! Like I've said, we've tried all the methods so far and this has by far been the easiest method with the best results for us. I think we're planning on doing the same method for our kitchen cabinets in the next few months!

DIY Halloween Popcorn Party Favors

DIY Halloween Popcorn Party Favors are a quick and easy Halloween treat to put together for any family or class Halloween Party.

With Halloween right around the corner I'm getting excited for all the family parties, dinners, decor, and festivities that are ahead of us. Halloween is one of my very favorite holidays and I love celebrating it with my kids each year. Derek's family hosts a Halloween party each year for the nieces and nephews and it's something that we're looking forward to doing again this year. 


I made these Halloween Popcorn Party favors a few years ago, and I think that they would be the perfect Halloween party favor for any festivity that you're participating in this year. They can easily be adapted with seal snack size bags of popcorn for a class party, or you can fill your own snack size baggie with some popcorn and make yours how I did below! 

What You Need to Make Halloween Popcorn Party Favors

These Halloween Popcorn Party Favors are super easy to make! All you need is some popcorn, snack sized ziplock bags, construction paper or cardstock, and some spooky Halloween stickers to make this easy craft come to life. If you can't find stickers you could even cut out black construction paper into the shape of bats.

You'll also need some simple items from your home such as a pencil, ruler, scissors, and a stapler to put the finishing touches on your popcorn party favors. 

Halloween Party Favors. Halloween popcorn party favors. DIY halloween party favors. Class halloween party ideas. Halloween treat ideas. Halloween treats for students. Halloween soccer team treats. How to make halloween party favors. #halloween #diy #fall #party

How to Make Halloween Popcorn Party Favors:

To make these the halloween popcorn party favors the first thing you're going to do is trace your snack size sandwich bag out onto a piece of paper. This should give you a square/rectangle shape the exact size as your sandwich bag. 

Then you're going to cut out that square and fold it in half. Once your paper is folded in half you can then stick your bat stickers (or any Halloween stickers of your choice), or your bats that you drew and cut out, onto the center of your folded piece of paper. 

Once you have your bat on your paper you're going to stick the side of your baggie with the ziplock opening inside the folded portion of your paper so that the ziplock is covered. From there you staple the piece of paper in place to make a super cute and easy halloween popcorn party favor for your next family gathering or school party! Repeat this process as necessary until you have all the bags you need.
