Mom Banner Mother's Day Printable

For parties focused on parents I think it is fun to get kids involved in making the decorations. These printable banner is such an easy do it yourself for kids to make. All you have to do is print it out kids can color in the letters and around the letters on the pendants. The banner includes a few pieces that say Moooom! When kids say mom they often throw in a few extra vowels in there to really get mom’s attention. Since I was making this from a kids perspective I thought that would be a funny way to write it. My daughter loves to draw so this was the perfect project for her. Really any age kid can help make this banner maybe with a little help. I also tried to make the letters look a little childlike to match with the doodles.

Mother’s Day Gift with printable tag

| Mother's Day, Printables

Mother's Day gift with printable tag

This gift is inspired by my own mom. She is the queen of naps! She has a ton of energy is always on the go when she is awake but she also loves her naps. She is also the master at getting her grand kids to nap. She’s the baby whisperer, it’s a gift! When my daughter used to nap I would nap right along with her. When she stopped napping I went through nap withdrawal! I would get sleepy around nap time and just crave that nap while my daughter was getting into things. We both would get a little grumpy around nap time. I was trying to think about what moms really want for Mother’s Day. I thought a kid free vacation, a mani/pedi, alone time at Target and a nap where the top contenders. This Mother’s Day gift with printable tag is a Mom’s Nap Kit. You can get creative with what to include in the nap kit but I put a blanket, eye mask, fuzzy socks, and head phones. You could put some other relaxing treats like tea and chocolate. This should come with an offer to watch a mom’s kids while she takes a nap. That is a priceless gift! I’m also a sucker for warm and cozy things.

Little Printable Coloring Gift Boxes For Mom

My daughter loves to draw. We both love arts and crafts we also love to draw. She likes to surprise me with drawings but she is very serious about me not looking. If I take a peak at what she is drawing she gets mad. She is apparently a serious artist! I love her surprise drawings and how much she loves to draw. It reminds me of myself as a kid. When I was a kid I wanted to grow up to be a cartoonist. One summer I took an art class. Unfortunately I broke my arm at the beginning of the class session and had to draw left handed. I have to say considering I am completely right handed my drawings weren’t terrible. My daughter looks like her dad but her personality is a lot like mine. I wanted to incorporate drawing into my Mother’s Day posts since it is something we both love. Also, whether a kid is a great artists or not kid doodles are the cutest! There are tags for Mom and Grandma to put on these gift boxes.

Fiesta party printable banner

I’m ready for a fiesta and I made these fun Mexican blanket party printables for the occasion. I have a Mexican blanket that I use for picnics and I love it. The blanket makes it feel like a fun fiesta when we just go to the park. I thought those fun bright colors would make cute party decorations and I was right! I also added yarn to the edges to make it really feel like the real thing. These fun free fiesta party printables are perfect for Cinco De Mayo or even summer parties. I have the steps for you of how to add the yarn with my printable placemats. Here I have banners, toppers, and labels. Print the fiesta party printables on white card stock paper, this paper is thicker and better for printable decorations.

Free Printable Fiesta Placemat

Fiesta Placemat for Parties

Who’s ready for a fiesta?! I know it’s not quite Cinco De Mayo, but in my opinion fiestas can happen any time of year. I love Mexican food and a colorful party! I think spring is a good time to start the fiestas and keep them going through the summer. It is the best time of year in Phoenix to get outdoors and entertain before it is too hot. Although I love a good pool party too! If you’ve visited my blog you know I also can’t get enough of bright colors. That makes a fiesta the perfect fit. I am doing more Cinco De Mayo posts than Mother’s Day this year because I am in a colorful mood. Don’t worry I will also have some Mother’s Day fun as well! Last year I made these Fiesta Flowers that have been a huge hit and are really easy to make! They would look adorable with these placemats. This week is full of fun and colorful Mexican blanket printables! Just attach some yarn to the ends to make it feel like a real Mexican Blanket! The free printable fiesta placemats are really fun for serving food at parties. Let’s get this party started!

Colorful Spring Chocolate Bark

| Uncategorized

Chocolate bark in colorful spring colors

Spring is in the air and that means bright colors all around. The flowers are blooming and I just love this time of year. In Phoenix I think spring starts a bit earlier than the rest of the country. Here it’s in the 90’s and other places are having snow storms. Even if it isn’t quite outdoor entertaining time you can still make some fun colorful spring chocolate bark with kids. I happen to have a bunch of bright colors of candy melts that I needed to use up. I used white, orange, and green. These colors kind of remind me of a retro vibe. When I was a kid my grandparents still had the retro shag carpet in these bright colors. They also are fun for spring! Next time I think I will use pink, yellow, and orange. Then I topped them with colorful sprinkles and that is all that is needed. I am still trying to perfect the art of making colorful chocolate. It’s an art in my mind. Since I have made mistakes I will share what they are and what you can do differently.
