Curls Gone Wild Shirt Design Download

Having daughters that are 5 years apart makes it a little tricky when I want them to wear matching outfits. I have been lucky to find some really cute matching outfits, but sometimes my options are little to non existent. Thankfully, it is really easy to make matching shirts with iron on vinyl! That is exactly what I did when I made these adorable “Curls Gone Wild” shirts for my two curly haired little munchkins.

I love just how easy making custom shirts can be with just a little vinyl and my Silhouette machine. I whipped these out in less than an hour and you would never know that they were handmade! [Read more…]

If you have been here for a while, you already know that we are huge Disney Junior fans. I am thrilled to have Disney Junior sponsoring this post today! As soon as it was announced that there would be a new show on Disney Junior, we were excited. We set our TV to record and we watched Puppy Dog Pals right when it was released. We were instantly hooked and have watched every episode since! I have been trying to do fun activities this summer and thought it would be perfect to make fun paper bag puppets, inspired by our new favorite show! These Puppy Dog Pals puppets have been so fun to play with together and I even plan on bringing them for a long road trip we have coming up.

Minnie Mouse Slime Recipe

We have officially caught the slime bug! We love making slime at our house and I love coming up with new recipes and new themes for each batch of slime that we make. I recently started playing around with a slime recipe that includes lotion in it that ends up making the slime so soft and smooth! I knew I needed to use that recipe when I created this fun Minnie Mouse Slime!

This slime is fun to play with just as regular slime, but it is also fun to try and treasure hunt to find the different designs that are hiding in the slime. It is a great sensory activity to play that also helps work on fine motor skills as kids use their fingers to search for the little pieces. Obviously, this isn’t a toy for kids that are too small because the beads in the slime would be considered a choking hazard. For my Minnie Mouse loving 5 year old, this slime was perfect!

Elena of Avalor Glitter Slime Recipe

We are big Disney Junior fans at our house. I think I enjoy watching the shows on there as much as my 5 year old does! That is why we are so honored to have Disney Junior sponsoring this post. We have our favorite shows set to record on our TV so that we can watch them together. Our TV has a busy day of recording on Fridays because of Disney Junior‘s FRiYAY morning schedule this summer on the Disney Channel. There is a new episode that premieres each Friday and we look forward to catching all of our favorite shows that way.

One of our favorite shows to watch together is Elena of Avalor. My daughter loves that the show is full of adventure and she loves Elena’s dresses, while I love that the show teaches great values. I really like that Elena had the opportunity to rule the kingdom on her own, but she chooses to have a council to help her. It teaches that no matter how big of responsibilities you might have, you can always surround yourself with good friends to help support you along the way!

We have recently discovered the art of making slime and thought it would be fun to make an Elena of Avalor themed slime! [Read more…]

Cars 3 Coloring Pages, Activities, and Recipes

When we were preparing to go to Disneyland two years ago, I realized that my daughter had never seen the Cars movie. Knowing that we would be spending time in Cars Land, I wanted to prepare her so that she would know what she was seeing at Cars Land. I had her watch the Cars movie and she fell in love instantly! She immediately wanted to watch Cars 2 and has been watching those two movies on repeat for the past 2 years. We were more than just a little excited when we learned about Cars 3!

A few weeks ago, I surprised my daughter by taking her to the Cars 3 Road to the Races Tour. I surprised her by giving her one of the brand new Cars 3 LEGO Junior sets. I gave it to her and told her that she needed them to play with on our road trip to this fun event. I am SO sad because I took the cutest pictures of her when I gave her the LEGO goodies and told her, but the pictures were lost somehow. Just imagine pretty much the most animated 5 year old hearing just about the best news she has ever heard, then times that by about 10! She was SO excited!  [Read more…]

Handwritten Water Bottle Teacher Gift Idea

My husband used to be an elementary school teacher. It was always interesting to see what kinds of gifts his students would bring him. A lot of times, he would end up with loads of candy. Candy is nice, but there is only so much candy one person can take before it gets a little old! When it was time to come up with a gift to give my daughter’s preschool and dance teachers, I knew I wanted to give them something practical and personal. That’s when we came up with this darling handwritten water bottle teacher gift idea!

Handwritten Water Bottle Teacher Gift Idea

These water bottles turned out just so sweet with this little 5 year old handwriting and artwork. I know that they will be treasures for her teachers and will be sweet reminders of my daughter each time they use them. I think the best part was just how simple they were to make! Here is what you need to make your own… [Read more…]

Cotton Candy Easter Egg Bath Bomb Recipe

This time of year is a favorite for a lot of people. It is the time of year that stores carry Easter candy! Personally, I don’t discriminate between candy during any time of the year and enjoy Easter candy just as much as I enjoy Valentine’s Day candy, Halloween candy, or Christmas candy. I love candy! That is why I wanted this month’s bath bombs to smell just like that, cotton candy! This cotton candy Easter egg bath bomb recipe is really fun, festive, and will have your bath smelling like you just stepped foot into a candy store.

Moana Birthday Party

This post is all about the decor of the Moana Birthday Party. Tomorrow’s post will include all of the games and the printables you need for the games for the Moana party!

We were one of the thousands of families who totally fell in love with Moana after we watched it Thanksgiving weekend. It had such a sweet story with great messages and incredible music that we all left the theater singing! That is why it was no surprise to me when my daughter told me she wanted to have a Moana birthday party! I was excited to create a Moana party, but didn’t want everything to be so character themed, so we went with an island luau with a lot of Moana inspiration. I just love how it all turned out and it was a blast!

Shrinky Dinks Ornaments Kid’s Gift Idea

Getting gifts for your kids to give to their friends for Christmas can get SO expensive! My daughter really wanted to give her friends something for Christmas, but when you are four years old the concept of money isn’t quite there. We finally agreed on giving her friends some handmade ornaments. I was trying to come up with a cute ornament that could be personal, but easy and cost effective as well and I remembered Shrinky Dinks! I used to make different creations with Shrinky Dinks as a kid and I knew they would be perfect to make ornaments with too! The best part is that each ornament ended up costing about 50 cents each to make!

To make these, I used the print and cut option on my Silhouette Cameo machine. This made making these incredibly easy because I printed them out and just had the Silhouette cut them out for me and they looked great! Of course, if you don’t have a Silhouette Cameo, you could print off your own design on the Shrinky Dinks and cut them out yourself, just know it will take you much longer and they won’t look as crisp. But it can be done! [Read more…]

Christmas Truck Pillow Tutorial and Giveaway

I have become increasingly obsessed with all of the products featuring vintage cars and trucks carrying Christmas trees. It is such a classic holiday symbol and I love all of the decor that I have seen inspired by them. Last year, I picked up a cute cookie jar shaped like a truck with a Christmas tree on top and I bought another little ceramic truck this year. I knew I wanted a new Christmas pillow this year and putting this classic truck was going to be the perfect addition to the pillow! Making this Christmas truck pillow was incredibly easy, so follow along and you can make your own too!
