None of my boys are into giving “sweet” Valentines to their classes – they’re much more interested in funny Valentine cards! To that end, I’ve been looking at doing a really “cool guy” approved Valentine Mustache Card for my older kids classrooms. I found this cute Free Printable Valentine’s Card above – which is adorable but may waste a TON of ink

If you’re already thinking ahead of Valentine’s Day Crafts to do with your kids – you might want to start collecting old crayons! I don’t know about you – but I am ALWAYS finding stray crayon pieces around our house, in the van, under the couch cushions – I think this is the perfect Valentine’s Day Craft for us! Basically, you just melt old crayons in a heart-shaped mold and pop them out, voila! Heart-Shaped Crayons! They’d be great to give out to classmates – or if you’re a teacher, a great gift for your kiddos!
Here are some simple directions for how to make a flurry of pretty paper snowflakes – using Coffee Filters! This would be a fun way to pass the afternoon this Christmas Eve – my kids had lots of fun making theirs earlier this week!
Have you ever been printing several things when suddenly one item you were printing gets stuck? You go to investigate and there’s one print job that has an ERROR – and it won’t allow anything else to print. ARRGGHH!! I’ve been there too. So of course – you click “Delete” to cancel the troublesome print job – and it proceeds to delete until eternity… It says “Deleting….” but it never actually moves on from that point.
Now that Halloween is over, you’ll be able to find some awesome deals on costumes. Costumes make great gifts, they bring out kids’ imaginations and get them away from a glowing screen for awhile. Make a costume chest and you’re kids will always have a go-to place to let their imaginations run wild.
One of my kids’ favorite past-times is playing dress-up. They’re boys, and so for them that means dressing up as ninjas, pirates, knights, dragons, cowboys, cops and robbers – and of course, every superhero known to man. My niece’s dress-up box is full of princess gowns, ballerina tutus, feathery boas and sparkly wands. It’s all a far cry from my own childhood dress-up box, which was full of mom’s hand-me-down 70′s jumpsuits, and a few maternity dresses. Still, it was my favorite thing to play and I love dressing up still!
