Color Hunt Outdoor Preschool Game Printable

Color Hunt Outdoor Preschool Game Activity Printable

I created my color hunt preschool activity and had fun in the sun with Banana Boat as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #BestSummerEver

Color Hunt Preschool with Free Printable on www.girllovesglam.com

I love finding fun activities that can be turned into something that is educational too. My three year old is at a pretty crucial age for learning. Thankfully I have an awesome teacher husband who can give me suggestions of different preschool activities I can do with our daughter each day that will be best for her particular stage. He mentioned that having activities where preschool aged children can match up different things and solve simple puzzles is great. He suggested doing some sort of preschool scavenger hunt with her where we could implement colors too. That is where the color hunt preschool game printable was born! [Read more…]

Lovebug Valentine Free Printable

I love seeing the cute valentines that are handed out in elementary schools. My husband was a classroom teacher and I loved going through his valentine box to see what kind of valentines the kids would choose. I distinctly remember being in elementary school and the three hardest decisions of the year where… what kind of backpack to get, what to be for Halloween, and what kind of valentines to hand out! They defined who you were in elementary school! It was always embarrassing when you got to school and someone else was giving out the same valentines, so that’s why it is so great that there are so many fabulous free printable valentine cards available now. I am sharing one with you today!

Psych Printable Valentine and Anniversary Cards

Who else loves Psych as much as I do? I haven’t had cable for a few years now, so I watched it as it came out on Netflix. I am sad to say that I finally just finished the final episode of the series. I am SO sad that it is over! Dave and I really enjoyed watching it together and were so sad to see it end. However, just because the show is over, it doesn’t keep us from quoting one liners from the show all day long! There isn’t any better Valentine’s Day card or anniversary card I can think of giving Dave than a Psych themed one. I whipped up two of them so I might just use one for each occasion!

Puffy Paint Snowman Kid Craft

Sometimes I question why I live in Idaho. That usually happens during the winter when I freeze 90% of the day. Now that my daughter is old enough to understand the fun that can come with snow, she wants to go outside all of the time! The problem is that I don’t always want to get all bundled up and freezing! Instead of feeling like a failure as a parent, I like to come up with fun activities that we can do in the house so we an stay nice and cozy. This puffy paint snowman kid craft has been a major lifesaver! She loves playing with the puffy paint and she feels like she is still building a snowman. Of course she named her girl snowman “Olaf” too. So, what do you say? Do you want to paint an Olaf? Do you want to build a snowman?

It is a quick and easy craft that kids of many different ages can enjoy and the best part is that you don’t have to get all bundled up to build this snowman!

Organization Board Family Command Center

In March 2012, I made an organization board to help keep my family in order. I made it with a baby strapped to my chest and decided to put it on my blog that I had just quit my day job for. Three months earlier, I had decided to take the plunge and be a full time blogger… at the exact same time as I had my first child. Interesting timing, right? Well, that little organization board tutorial went VIRAL! I had no idea what was going on. I just suddenly was getting hundreds of comments, emails, and my life was completely changed. That post is still one of my top traffic sources to this day, but I cringe every time I see it pinned on Pinterest, which is over 500k times… that is a lot of cringing! The lighting was terrible and I am SO over chevron print and the colors aren’t exactly my style anymore. You can see the full tutorial for my first organization board, here.

Organization board

I have wanted to change up the good ol’ organization board for a while now, but just have had ZERO motivation to do it. Once we moved, I decided to finally take on that project. I set my entire old board a side and started fresh! Ladies and gentlemen (for the one random dude who happens to come across this post), I present to you… The Organization Board Family Command Center version 2.0!

Ahhhhh… isn’t that so much better? I really wanted to bring in some natural elements with the stained wood, while keeping some funky features like the stripes and the metallics.

Homemade All Natural Hair Mask Recipe

Last week, I was getting into the shower and I wasn’t going to wash my hair. Let’s face it, I don’t wash my hair that often. I am so glad that it has been proven to be healthier to not wash your hair, because let’s face it, I didn’t wash my hair often before that was said. I hate washing my hair because it means I actually have to dry it and style it. What a pain, right? Well, last week I put on my shower cap and my daughter saw me. In that two year old brain of hers, she probably thought that aliens had tried sucking my brain out of my head because that is how she responded. She screamed, cried, and went and hid under a chair. I am pretending it is because I had the shower cap and not because she saw me totally naked before hopping in the shower. THAT, my friends is probably enough to scar a child for life on its own, but I am hoping it was just the shower cap!

The reason I share that semi humiliating story with you is to point out just how much I dislike washing my hair. Next to washing the dishes and vacuuming, it is one of my least favorite things to do. I do however think it is important to really treat your hair well, starting with what products you use in the shower. One of my favorite ways to really get my hair healthy, is with hair masks. Hair masks are great ways to get your hair the extra kick of nutrients it needs. I like to make my own hair mask because I know it isn’t going to be full of random, harmful ingredients and it will is much cheaper to do it that way too!

Homemade All Natural Hair Mask Recipe on www.girllovesglam.com

This hair mask is easy to make and is made from products that you probably already have at home! You will have no excuse not to treat your hair with a little r&r now.

This hair mask consists of four ingredients.

DIY homemade hair mask ingredients

There is a reason for each of these ingredients.

Coconut Oil- Coconut oil is a natural conditioner for your hair. It will make your hair feel silky smooth.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil- This is also a great conditioner for your hair. It is also really good for damaged hair.

Honey- Honey helps add the glow to your hair that is probably long gone. It adds moisture and makes your hair feel exquisite!

Baking Soda- Baking Soda will help eat away some of that hair product that gets stuck to your scalp and hair.

Now that you know a little bit more about why I use the ingredients I use, now it is time to make your homemade hair mask!

DIY Hair Mask Recipe on www.girllovesglam.com

Homemade All Natural Hair Mask Recipe
Author: McKenzie at Girl Loves Glam
Ingredients
  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
Instructions
  1. Put all of the ingredients in a bowl and mix together with a hand mixer, or put them in a blender and blend them all together until they are mixed into a cream.

I use a hair mask about once a week. Note, this hair mask WILL make your hair look greasy! I repeat… this hair mask will make your hair look greasy! BUT it is only for the first day after you put it in your hair. That is why I recommend washing your hair at night once a week, putting the hair mask on in the shower, letting it sit on your hair while you wash your body and shave your legs, then rinsing it out. Then in the morning you can wash your hair again like usual. This will cut down the greasy look a lot. The grease you will see is actually just the coconut oil that is sitting on your hair. It is good to have the oils sit on your hair so they can really soak in, so if you have a day that you know you will just be hanging out at your house then use it on that day so that your hair will look greasy all day and night instead of just at night while those oils really soak in. Your hair will feel amazing when you wash it again!

Another thing to note is that this recipe will make enough for me to use about twice. For the jar that is pictured, I had to triple the recipe. This is a great gift to give your friends who seem to have everything. I recommend doubling or tripling the recipe (maybe even more if they have more girls in the house too) and putting it in a jar with this cute little printable that I made for it. They will love it! Just make sure to tell them how to use it so they don’t secretly hate you for making them look like they have greasy hair when they decide to use a hair mask on the morning of their wedding day or something.

To print off your own printable tag, just go to this link HERE.

Save the image and print it off. I just punched a hole in the top and tied it onto the jar with some twine. Cute and easy!

This hair mask is also great to give as a gift with this face mask too!

Now for my Father’s Day idea. My husband and dad are both tech geeks. My Father’s Day gifts to them are always centered around technology in some way. This year is no different than years in the past. I am sticking with the techy theme again and I knew I needed just the right gift tag to go along with the tech gifts.

Now for some great tech gift ideas! I am giving my dad a handlebar mount for his phone to go onto his bike so he can use the GPS on his phone for his long bike rides. I am giving my husband a fine point stylus for his iPad that this free printable will look great on as well. This printable would look fabulous on Apple gift cards, Best Buy gift cards, a new laptop bag, a phone cover, iPod arm band, iPad, or any tech gift you can think of!

I hope your dads have great Father’s Days! Make sure to show them how much you care!
