FREE Printable Easter Treat Tag

FREE Printable Easter Treat Tag at Happy Home Fairy!!!.jpgSo I found THIS PIN and I was like, “Oh, this is so happening.”

I called our church’s children’s ministry director and asked her if she wanted a little gift idea to give all of her amazing volunteers on Resurrection Sunday.

She said yes and boom.

I present you with the cutest Easter treat ever!

You will need some Rolos candy, the FREE Printable tag at the bottom of this post, some Ziploc snack bags, a hole punch, and some yarn.FREE Printable Easter Treat Tag at Happy Home Fairy - so cute.jpgFREE Printable Easter Treat Tag at Happy Home Fairy.jpg

Advent Paper Chain Countdown – FREE Printable

advent paper chain 1Y’all know I am passionate about Advent Calendars.

And you know that I have a wonderful FREE Printable for you to countdown to Jesus’ birth using Christmas Scripture verses each day (find it HERE).

This year, however, I wanted to try something different.

advent chain1I created a cute FREE Printable of a fun poem to attach to a paper chain.

I found an amazing FREE Printable paper chain over at Spell Outloud that shares 25 names of Jesus – one for each day of December.  I printed it out on red and green paper.

I am especially clinging to His names of Prince of Peace and Good Shepherd this season.  How lovely to spend the days leading up to our Lord’s birthday dwelling on who He is.

On all that God gifted to us through His son’s coming.

We made one for each of my 2-year-olds to take home and do with their families.  I posted about it on Instagram and someone emailed me and asked if I would share the tag I used here on the blog.

It’s not too late to start counting down.

To a Special Mum – FREE Printable!

This is SOOO adorable! Buy a mum (just a few bucks at Lowe's), attach adorable free printable tag and give to a mom in your world who you would like to bless!

As a mom, I am constantly thinking about how much I NEED my mom friends.

I called one up this afternoon and we each took a minute to share the day’s trials (like how one child has now decided that taking off his diaper and painting a carpeted room with his poo is perfectly acceptable and other child is having some trouble in school) and simply lament together how hard this whole mom thing is!

It was completely therapeutic.  She oohed and ahhed over just the right things and she affirmed me with these 5 powerful words:

“You are an awesome mom.”

By the end of the conversation I wanted to reach through to the other side of the phone and give my friend a giant hug.

Doesn’t it feel good to hear that little bit of encouragement when you are in the mommyhood trenches?

Doesn’t it feel good to be noticed?

Well, here is an easy way to give the gift of hope and life to a mom in your world who is roughing it with poo and meal-planning and budgeting and diapering.

mum 2First, pick up an inexpensive mum plant.

You can find adorable little pots at Lowe’s for just a few dollars.MUM TAG

mum 1Then attach my FREE Printable tag.

Next, drop it off on a mom’s doorstep for an extra special Fall-themed surprise.

And that’s all there is to it!

mumI gave a mum to my very own mom – who definitely deserves affirmation for being super special (note homemade fort in the background, courtesy of super special mom).

The Gospel Pumpkin – FREE Printable!

The Gospel Pumpkin! A super cute way to share the Good News with your kids or students. There is even an adorable FREE Printable poem to go along with it!

I wanted to share The Gospel Pumpkin with my precious, little 2-year-olds, but knew that actually carving a pumpkin during class was going to take way too long for their minuscule attention spans.

So I turned to the wonders of sticky foam!

The Gospel Pumpkin_0001I created a cute printable featuring The Gospel Pumpkin poem.

The Gospel Pumpkin 9Then I cut out the coordinating symbols from sticky foam.

The Gospel Pumpkin 2The Gospel Pumpkin 3The Gospel Pumpkin 4The Gospel Pumpkin 5The Gospel Pumpkin 6I gathered my students on the carpet and read the poem aloud, stopping to show them each symbol.

I let them each have a turn coming up to help stick the symbols on to the pumpkin.

The Gospel Pumpkin 7The kids really enjoyed learning about Christ in this way and they LOVED getting to participate!

The Gospel Pumpkin 8What a sweet way to share God’s special message to us during this season.

**HERE** is the FREE Printable if you’d like to do this with your own classroom or Happy Home.

A Fall Checklist – FREE Printable!

October is my favorite month.

South Florida living is not very conducive to enjoying a genuine autumn experience, so I have to be super intentional about creating fall in our Happy Home.

A few year’s ago I made a little checklist to help keep our family on track.

You’ll find all of your favorite fall activities on this list (I think mine would have to be going to the pumpkin patch – hopefully this year’s trek will prove to be more successful than last year’s).

I hope you will print one off for your own Happy Home to check off together.

Back to School Supply Scavenger Hunt – FREE Printable!

If you have even stepped two feet outside of your Happy Home, you know that the stores are overflowing with Back to School Supplies.

Does anyone else get a thrill out of a brand new box of crayons?? :-)

Last year I bought 75 boxes for 40 cents each at Wal-Mart.

I am not even kidding about that.

Here is a fun way to treat your Happy Buddies to their school supplies this year – give them a School Supply Scavenger Hunt!

It’s super easy.

Just purchase the basics – crayons, markers, pencils, notebooks, paper, scissors, glue, and a ruler.

Then use my FREE Printable Scavenger Hunt Cards to hide the supplies around your Happy Home!

Your Happy Buddies will just love racing from one rhyming clue to the next, filling their backpacks with the things that they will need for the new school year.

Here’s a peak at what your FREE Printable School Supply Scavenger Hunt Cards look like…

**GREAT IDEA ALERT!**

Want to use this School Supply Scavenger Hunt AND get your Happy Buddies thinking about others??

Simply put a double of each school supply at each of the Scavenger Hunt locations.

Then hand your Happy Buddy another backpack and tell him that he is going on a hunt not only for his own supplies, but for the supplies of a child less fortunate.

Finally, have your Happy Buddy donate the backpack to a local charity or organization that is having a Back to School Supply Drive – our church is donating backpacks and school supplies right now to 4 Kids of South Florida.

I think some Staples locations are hosting School Supply Drives as well.
