7 Awesome Valentine's Day Boxes for School

Valentine's Day is coming up and the kids are getting excited about giving their Valentines out to their friends. One year we did conversation starters made out of recycled crayons and they were so cute! We also did Girl Scout Thin Mint Cookie Pops to give out. They were delicious! I remember my first real Valentine's from my best friend, Lynn. She went all out.

How to have a TMNT Party for a Four-Year-Old

How to have a TMNT Party for a Four-Year-Old

I love doing Birthday parties for my kids.  It’s fun to organize, brings out the creativity in me and makes me feel like a kid again! Last year we had a very successful LEGO Themed party for my three-year-old.  This year he’s turning four-years-old and wanted a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles themed party.  I can’t say I was happy he chose that, especially since he doesn’t watch it or even know what it is.  He must have heard of it from school or maybe saw his brother play a Ninja Turtles game.  Either way, I was disappointed. I was hoping Unicorns or Superheroes.  A mom can dream, can't she? So, I brainstormed and thought of a way to have a toned-down Ninja Turtle themed party while …

How to Make Non Candy Valentine's Conversation Hearts with Recycled Crayons

I'm not sure how long the Valentine's Conversation hearts candies have been out.  I've been receiving them since I was a little girl.  I never even liked the taste of them.  They always ended up going to waste. Every year the kids come home with candy for Valentine's Day and every year I take some and dump them.  Don't get me wrong, they get candy.  But we don't need more dentist visits so I'm particular about what they keep.  No chewy candy that can sit in their teeth.  This year I bought tiny heart lollipops for my little one's class. But for my older one who is six-year-old, I wanted to do something different. I wanted to do a DIY Valentine's Day gift project with him. One …
