I think it’s safe to say that Inside Out was a favorite movie for people of all ages last year. It’s lighthearted and kid centered enough to keep my daughter enthralled, but had layers of deeper meaning that for the big kids/adults. It’s the perfect movie to turn into a birthday party if you ask me!
One of our favorite movies last year was HOME by Dreamworks. OH, Tip (Gratuity), Lucy, Kyle, Captain Smeck, Pig the cat – the whole lot are hilarious! I love that the movies are geared for kids, but have enough wit and humor that adults enjoy them too. As I mentioned in my Cinderella post, my daughters birthday isn’t for 6 months, but this is one of the ideas we’re brainstorming for her party and I thought I’d share the ideas I have in case you’re looking to host one yourself. So, again, while I don’t have finished party photos – hopefully they’ll give you a good jumping off point!
2015 was a great movie year in my opinion! We especially loved the new Cinderella movie. My daughters birthday isn’t for 6 months, but we’re already brainstorming on different themes. The new Cinderella movie is one that she really loves, and while it is similar to her Disney Princess party from last year, I have come up with a few ideas I wanted to share in case you are planning a Cinderella birthday party.
Love is in the air, can you feel it? It’s almost Valentine’s Day! I’ve made a Love Coupon book for my husband in the past, but to be honest – it never got used. It was totally cute though! I thought these Valentine’s Day Love Coupons for kids would be a better way to go.
Each Monday night we have a Family Home Evening (FHE) where we share compliments about each other, sing, pray, have a short gospel devotional and usually have an activity or game that goes with the devotional. I plan to use these for my Valentine’s Day themed Family Home Evening this year. As a special activity, I am going to make a DIY punchboard (poster board with circles cut out and covered in thin tissue paper with sandwich bags taped over the back opening of each hole). Each punch hole will contain one of these cute coupons and everyone will get to take a turn punching to see which Love Coupon they get!
It seems like each year the kids get bombarded with candy from school. so I thought these would be a fun way to promote family togetherness and love without the focus being on the candy. Now, don’t get me wrong – I’ll be baking up a large batch of sugar cookies (using my favorite recipe) to decorate and we will for sure be making another Love Shack like this, but I’m hoping this will be a fun way to show love to my kids without the candy.
Best of all, I am including them here FREE for you to print and use for your family! I made 6 different options and I hope you comment if you use them and love them!

Entertaining for the holidays is one of my favorite things (along with rain drops on roses and red woolen mittens)! Being sponsored by Collective Bias, Inc. and it’s advertiser sweetens the whole thing considerably! #ShareTheJoyOfPie #CollectiveBias
A holiday pie buffet will give your guests a warm welcome to your home and invoke memories of family gatherings of the past. Best of all, pie can be served warm out of the oven, at room temperature or even cold – so no matter what else is going on that day, it’s the perfect dessert to serve at your holiday gathering. With the hurried pace of the holidays, using Marie Callender’s® Dessert Pie and Reddi-wip® Whipped Topping is the way to share the joy of pie without spending all day in the kitchen.
This is a bit of a spoiler alert for my friends and neighbors. These are the gift tags I’m using for our Christmas Neighbor Gift. I’m making this recipe for Gooey Chex Mix (also called Christmas Crack, or so I’ve heard) and packaging it up in cute little bags and containers I picked up at the Dollar Tree. This FREE tag prints 6 per page and would go great with any Chex mix – homemade or store bought! Hopefully this will make your neighbor gifts a little bit easier this year!

I get to host the Thanksgiving party for my daughters preschool and I’m having so much fun planning it! I put together these easy Paper Bag Turkey’s for the kids to make. I’m going to have them draw something they are thankful for (since they can’t spell quite yet) on each feather.
There are lots of cute Thanksgiving turkey crafts floating around out there but some weren’t quite at a preschool level like the ones I featured in this Round up of Thanksgiving Crafts for Kids. I came up with this one because I know the kids will be able to do it.
