I’m going to keep this post short and sweet just like the tutorial for the post. I made this floating tray with dollar store and dollar section materials. I have to tell you this isn’t 100% an original idea because I saw something similar. However, this is a much easier way to make it. I saw a tray that was made with pool floats and it included a lot of cutting and gluing to make the finished product. I don’t know about you but when I’m hanging by the pool I want to be lazy and relax. That is why I made this simple dollar store floating tray. It includes just a simple round tray and round float. If you cant find the round float at the dollar store check the grocery store for just a simple small float.

This year my daughter knew right away what her party theme would be. She has been obsessed with Moana lately and wanted to have a Moana party. It’s actually a really good movie, one of the best kids movies I have seen in a while. I couldn’t find a lot of actually Moana decorations but this time of year the party store is filled with colorful, tropical fun so I snatched up all of those fun decorations! I love how everything turned out and my daughter really loved it. Of course I had to DIY a few things but most of it was simple to put together. I hope I can give you some inspiration and ideas to make a fun Moana party! Let’s get this party started!
I’m going to keep this post short and sweet because I’m moving this week and tired. Pardon any grammar mistakes. I also started this project one way and ended it another so I didn’t get pictures of the process for what worked.Originally I was going to use tissue paper for the firework part but it didn’t quite stay on right. In the end I used glitter glue to draw on little fireworks and I love how easy it was.
What you need to make them:

Who doesn’t love fireworks! Ok dogs usually don’t and sometimes firework shows are just too crowded. However, once those beautiful shining fireworks start it is all worth it. That is one of the best parts of the Fourth of July and I wanted to make fireworks fun for kids too. Not with anything flammable because kids and fire do not mix! I’m talking about the squishy fun tissue paper kind. Kids can throw them all around and make their own firework show. They are also super cute for a decoration at parties! So lets bring on the summer and the Fourth of July with some fun fireworks!
These flamingos are almost too cute to eat but they are edible! I made some cute cupcake and donut flamingos that are super simple to make with printable flamingo heads to add as toppers then pipe cleaners for the legs. They are tall but they have to stand tall like a flamingo to be a true flamingo treat. This is another one that I made a video for hopefully the video will help show you how easy they are to make. I also have some easy instructions for the bodies.
All you need are cupcakes or donuts. I have to say I prefer the donuts with the candy melts but with frosting piping the cupcakes would look adorable!
Mexican food is one of my favorite types of food to make. I am especially a fan of the easy recipes.Quick and easy is kind of my specialty. I especially love to make Mexican food probably because it is one type of food I could literally eat every day! Mexican food is also always a crowd pleaser. Who doesn’t love chips, salsa, guacamole, and tacos? It is one of the best foods to make for entertaining. This easy chicken taco bite appetizer is a fun appetizer to serve for guests. They look adorable and are guaranteed to disappear in minutes.
Graduation is such an exciting time and reason to celebrate! I remember how excited I was to graduate and move on to the next exciting stage of my life. I have some fun graduation party game ideas for both high school and college graduation parties. You don’t need anything too complicated or cheesy to have some fun at graduation. You can pick a couple games you like from the ideas I have that fit your crowd.
It’s been a long year for teachers and it is time for us to show our appreciation! My daughter is almost done with Kindergarten and she has had such a sweet teacher this year. I have a lot of respect for anyone that can control a class full of tiny humans. It must be exhausting being a teacher! My dad was a teacher and his parents were as well. Teaching might be in my blood but the teaching gene skipped me. It’s hard to give a gift that can show full appreciation and really be useful for the teacher. I think most teachers get through the year with the help of a lot of caffeine! That is why I made this fun and easy teacher appreciation gift with free printable tags. I made some cute and funny printable tags to go with a coffee gift. This can include tumblers and coffee mugs. Add a printable and a gift card inside to a coffee shop then you have an easy gift. Coffee cards, money, or Target cards are fail proof gifts for teachers.
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.
Easter has so many cute treats you can make. From bunnies, eggs, chicks, and baskets. There are so many cute Easter desserts for kids to eat and help make.
