Holiday Class Party Craft Idea!


Hi everyone!  I am excited to share a simple holiday class party craft with you.  It can work for all elementary ages, although you may wish to prepare some of the steps ahead of time for the younger kiddos.  I created this ornament idea specifically for my son's first grade class, so I did much of the prep work such as cutting, gluing and creating the "kits" prior to the party.

UPDATE: This craft was a huge success at the party!  I was impressed at how the first graders needed very little guidance...they pretty much figured it out on their own!  It only took about 5 minutes for them to complete (whew!).  The most challenging part was the little star rings, which could be left off.  Many of the kids took a yellow marker and colored the star topper.

Supplies needed:
Tree Cutouts on Green Paper (PDF Here) (Silhouette cut file here) - 2 per ornament
Wired Tinsel ribbon (3 feet per ornament)
Tape, Glue or Tape Runner
String & Scissors for ornament hanger (approx 10 inches per ornament)
Optional decorations:
Mini claw hair clips (also avail at Dollar Tree, Five Below, Walmart, etc)
Star hair rings
Wood Stars - Target Dollar Spot (Holiday 2017) or Star Stickers




INSTRUCTIONS:
1. Cut approx 10 inches of string to use for ornament hanger.  Glue or use a tape runner and attach the string to the top of one of the tree cutouts.  Glue the second tree cutout over top.  (For younger kids, complete this step ahead of time.)




2.  Tape the end of the tinsel ribbon to the back of the cutout.  Allow kids to wrap the tinsel ribbon any way they choose!  When complete, simply twist the wire to itself to attach.

3.  The kids will clip on the hair clips, star hair rings, stickers, etc. for decoration.

4.  Use tape, glue, or glue dots to attach a wood star or star sticker to the top of the tree.

5.  Don't forget to write child's name and year on the ornament!

Football Party on a Budget: Concession Stand Setup

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share some pictures from the Football Party we had for my son's 7th birthday over the weekend.  I took many of the Concession Stand ideas from Pinterest, purchased most of the decorations from Dollar Tree, created a couple banners, and used what we already had!  If you're planning a football party, Super Bowl party, tailgate party, etc., I hope you'll find some of these ideas useful!

Each guest had to "pay" for the concession stand items based on the "prices" above 😉. They loved it!!!!
MENU Banner - Made myself


Concession items included cotton candy, ring pops, chips, candy, soft pretzels w/cheese dip, popcorn, Gatorade, water and pizza.  My 5th grade daughter and her friends worked the stand, replenishing the food, taking "payment", making popcorn, etc.

2-Tier Wire Rack - Target Dollar Spot Spring 2017
Flags - Made myself
Football Cooler - Borrowed from my sister, but available at Walmart
I used a projector to project an image of a football field onto the wall.
CONCESSIONS banner - Made myself



My glitter football shirt - Made myself
Name tags - Made myself


I used paper cups on the chandelier (similar ones are at Dollar Tree)
Football hanging decor - Dollar Tree


Favors were Football Glasses from Dollar Tree filled with a trail mix (Lucky Charms, various flavors of Cheerios, Fruit Loops, M&Ms, Football Candy Corn, Mini York Peppermint Patties)
Label - Made myself

*********
If you are interested in purchasing the printable items shown above (favor labels, name tags, banners, flags, etc.), please contact me in my Etsy shop for pricing!

Free Printable Kids To-Do Checklists

Hi everyone!  I have to share a major struggle I have as a Mom: getting my kids to do what they're told, especially before school and after school!!!  I'm going to guess that I'm not the only one???  So I started to think about what teachers do at school to keep the kids moving smoothly from task to task and accomplish all that needs to be done during the day.  I think it's simply a ROUTINE.  That's where I fail at home.  I thought that my kids would know by now what they need to do each and every day before and after school. I thought my kids would be familiar with their morning routine. I thought they would know that they need to eat breakfast, brush their teeth, check the lunch menu, etc.  But it was always a struggle!!! 😜😜😜
UNTIL.......


This has been a game-changer for us.  It does take a minute or two out of my mornings and afternoons to go and print this (usually tasks change day-to-day), but my kids wake up and immediately go to their list.  When they get off the bus, they come home and immediately go to their list.  Now I don't have to keep yelling saying "Make your bed!", "Brush your teeth!".....I just have to say "LIST!!!!" Hopefully we'll reach a point this year where we don't need the lists each day, but for now, I'm not going to stop the train!!  It's working, so we'll keep it going!!!

Free Printable Behavior Chart

Hi everyone!  My kids' teachers have always been really big on using behavior charts (some use Class Dojo, the electronic version), so I've tried at various times to implement the same idea at home.   My son is much more motivated by the chart than my daughter is, so I have found it very useful for him.  Here is a freebie version for you to try as well!!  I also have an emoji editable one in my shop.  Hang on the fridge and use magnets with the child's name to move the child "up" or "down" based on his/her behavior.   Clothes pins work well too (as shown in example below)!  We always start each day on Green - Good Day.




On a personal note, my kids started back to school yesterday!!!!  Can't believe it!  Mya is in 5th, Mason is in 1st.  Little brother isn't so little anymore!!! 😯

Too Young for Cell Phone but Needs a Way to Call! Gizmo Gadget Watch

Hi everyone!  First of all, this is not a sponsored post.  I'm just very, very pleased about a product that I have to share it with you!!!!  Secondly, if you have a child who is not ready for a cell phone but needs a way to call or be reached, then this is for you...keep reading!!!!

Have you heard of the Gizmo Gadget watch?  Another Mom told me about this fabulous watch a couple years ago, and I have yet to see a single advertisement for it.  At least 5 people I know have purchased one for their kid since I told them about it.  I don't know why it's not being advertised!

(image from Verizon Wireless)

What is the Gizmo Gadget?
The Gizmo Gadget is a watch that allows the child to call (via speaker) up to 10 people that you program into the contacts.  It can also receive calls from those 10 people.  Other features include sending pre-programmed text messages, sending voice messages, receiving text messages (up to 30 characters per message) via the GizmoHub app, GPS tracking, location check-in, and step tracker.

What age group would the Gizmo Gadget be appropriate?
We got my daughter her Gizmo for her 9th birthday (she is now 10).  In my opinion, any child who can read well and who can be trusted to receive and make phone calls would be fine with this watch.  We're considering one for our 6 year-old because he's always running around the neighborhood into various friends' homes and it's difficult to keep track of him!!  If you don't have a landline, this would be a perfect option.

I think the watch may not be good for age 11/12 and up, only because it does not have the text capacity that an almost-teenager would probably need! There are no apps or internet browsers either.

How does the Gizmo Gadget GPS feature work?
There is a GizmoHub app that the parent must have on his/her phone to track the child's watch.  There can be a 1-5 minute search time for the app to locate your child.


My favorite features on the GizmoHub app and Gizmo watch:
--GPS Locator (as mentioned above)
--Messaging - While the child can only use pre-programmed, short messages to text the parent, they can voice text much longer messages.
--Battery Life Alerts - The app will alert the parent when the gizmo battery is low.  You can also check the battery life at any time through the app.
--Auto-answer calls feature - You can choose to have the watch answer after 10 seconds even if the child does not push the answer button on the watch.  This feature is helpful if the child has silenced the watch because then you can start yelling speaking and he/she will hopefully hear you!
--The cost - We paid about $150 for the watch and pay only $5.00 per month for the service (2-year contract).  That price may vary depending on your plan.
--Quick contact with my child!!!  No walkie-talkies or texting/calling the neighbor moms or dads to ask them to send my child home!!!  I can call my daughter directly!!!!!

Cons:
--If your provider is not Verizon.  As I'm typing this, I believe the Gizmo is available exclusively through Verizon.  However, other providers may have their own version.
--It's not waterproof.  Hopefully there will be an update to the watch very soon where it is waterproof.

I really have no other complaints!  My daughter wears her Gizmo all the time, even to school.  She calls me from the bus on the way to school if she forgets something (of which I may or may not come running to the school to bring it to her!!!).  I track her when she rides her bike two streets over to her friend's house.  I text her that it's time for dinner and she needs to come home or that I'm on my way to pick her up.  It's sooooo worth it and I highly recommend it!!!!

I'd love to hear your thoughts too!  Please leave me a comment below if your child has a Gizmo or if you have any questions about it!!
:)Jamie

Free Printable Daily Planner Page


Hi everyone!  Here is a new planner page that I created and wanted to share.  I've been a little overwhelmed lately with tasks and projects and Etsy orders and kids....etc!!!!  I decided that a full-week planner is not working for me and that I just need to take each day at a time.  I have switched over to daily to-do lists and what I don't finish one day, I just carry over to the next.  I'm finding that I'm much more productive and crossing off a lot more than when I was trying to put everything in a weekly planner.  I hope you will find this helpful as well!!! 
😀Jamie
