Here’s a fun gift idea for you! Print out my FREE “For Your Mistle Toes” gift tags and attach them each to a bottle (or bottles) of nail polish with a little ribbon, and walla! You have a darling gift for teachers, neighbors, friends (great teenage girl gift idea!) and it’s very affordable too, as nail polish comes is such a large range of prices, starting as low as under $1.00!
Just go here to print out the Mistle Toes FREE Printable Gift Tags!
And if you would rather give your Mistle Toe gift in a gift bag, you can also print out my FREE Mistle Toes gift bag! These are very easy to assemble. Just print out the FREE Mistle Toes Gift Bag on cardstock, and then cut it out following the solid lines (I like to cut just inside the lines so the solid black line doesn’t show). And then fold along the dotted lines and use a glue stick or Elmers (or even tape!) to put it together!
I also like to sprintz these gifts with the spray glitter.. just because everything looks better with glitter Enjoy!
Here’s a really inexpensive and fun way to make your own mini gingerbread houses for your kids…They are are the perfect size for their little fingers to be creative.
Directions: Take about 1 cup brown sugar, place in a sauce pan and turn on medium heat stirring occasionally… it will take up to 10 mins to get it to the right consistency. Then just break up your graham crackers, dip and stick. The melted brown sugar works like glue.
Grab whatever goodies that you have on hand … and decorate!
*Do be careful with little ones, as it is hot… and will burn little fingers, so make sure to use care when dipping.
My Sis-in-law Andra is a wife, mom, photographer, and all around fun-creative chic …and I am bugging her like crazy to keep the guest posts coming, so hopefully we will see more from her in the near future! Thanks Andi!
We are still all giddy from seeing Disney’s Frozen, so we are all about snowmen this year! Here’s a fun Frozen inspired craft that you might enjoy!
My daughter LOVES to put together homemade gifts for people, so this year we have made a series of fun and FREE printables to share with all of you. I love that it is an activity that we can do together, it’s VERY inexpensive (paper and a printer, scissors and some glue) and it encourages the act of giving.
Just go here to print out the FREE Printable Snowman Handle Gift Bag that you can cut out and use as packaging. (I prefer to print mine on white cardstock, but plain paper works too, the bag just won’t be as sturdy.) Cut along the inside of the lines (so that the dark lines don’t show once you put your bag together… and then fold along the dotted lines, add a touch of glue (glue sticks work great for this!). You can even use tape!
If you enjoyed this fun FROZEN inspired idea… here are some other fun homemade gift and craft ideas: Check out my FREE Snowman Parts Snack printable, and make sure to check out my recipe for Magical Party Dip and my Homemade Bath Fizz Snowballs and FREE “You’re Snow Special” printable and make sure to take a peek at my Snowman Cheese Ball and my recipe for Homemade Sugar Scrub!

Thankful Turkey Coloring Craft for Kids:
Go here to print out your FREE I’m Thankful Turkey template! My kids and I had a ball making these…super easy and fun, and a thankful turkey is always a great way to put your life in perspective! We do a thankful turkey each year so that I can watch those little hands grow along with our thankfulness!
If you get extra creative, you can also glue things onto this craft: feathers, gems, noodles … dress up your thankful turkey for a festive holiday look. This is also a great project to share with teachers as it is very simple and easy on the budget, yet fun for the kids and parents love to hang this one up!

I’m headed to L.A. in just a couple of days for the red carpet premiere of Disney’s newest movie, FROZEN (more details here). I can’t wait, and in anticipation of this movie, we are we are rolling out all of our favorite winter inspired creations! I am always up for fun and affordable holiday gift ideas, and this one of our favorites… it’s a fun little project that you can turn into a party favor, gifts for neighbors or just treats for the kids!
Putting these fun treat bags together is easy, and you can get as creative as you like with the contents. We used mini marshmallows, mini chocolate chips, pretzel sticks and candy corn (you can still buy candy corn here on Amazon OR check local stores, our Walgreens has their candy corn on clearance 90% off) It’s fun to let kids fill their own if you are doing these at a party, or you can pre-fill them and hand them out as favors.
Just go here to print out the FREE Snowman Parts printable that you can cut out and use as packaging. (I prefer to print mine on white cardstock, but plain paper works too!) Cut out the squares and fold them in the middle, staple over your bag of parts, and you have a fun and very affordable wintery treat to share!

If you are looking for an easy and fun Halloween snack treat, here is one that we have made several times over the past few years in my children’s classrooms. I will warn you first that NO, they are NOT healthy, but YES, they were all kinds of fun to make and eat
To make these Oreo Cookie Spiders you will need:
Oreos, Black Licorice, Yellow Frosting, Red Hots and white paper plates/black marker. Open the cookies to add the yellow frosting (for some reason, spiders look cooler with yellow gush oozing out) and also add the licorice sticks (you can cut them in half for shorter spiders) … also use the yellow frosting to glue on the eyes.
Draw a spider web on the paper plate… walla…Spooky Spider Treats!
