Christmas Matching Game Printable

Christmas classroom parties and Christmas break are right around the corner! There is going to be a lot of time to keep your kids entertained, before they have their Christmas goodies. When I was little, my mom made a matching game out of Halloween monsters and I loved it! We played it in my classroom as a traditional memory game, but when I was home I would play it and mix and match the parts of the monsters to make silly characters. I really wanted to make a version of this game for Christmas! So I created this Christmas memory matching game that can also be used as a Christmas character mix and match activity too!

Simple Reindeer Christmas Gift Tag

When I was growing up, we had a tradition where we would make Christmas gift tags after Thanksgiving dinner. It was always something that I looked forward to doing. As all of the cousins started to grow up, that tradition kind of just stopped. I miss making Christmas gift tags! I try to make a few every year because I still really enjoy making them. This year, I came up with this fun little reindeer Christmas gift tag and it was love at first sight!

Awesome Advent Calendars Your Family Will Love!

I have always loved advent calendars. I loved having some sort of Christmas countdown that I could do each day. It made me look forward to each day, rather than just waiting impatiently for the big day to arrive. When I became a mom, that love of advent calendars continued to grow as I watched that same magic unfold with my daughter as she got to discover what was in each day of her countdown. This year, we will probably have about five advent calendars going on at the same time and I love it! I think it will be so fun! Here are some of my favorite advent calendars and DIY advent calendar ideas that I just know your family will love as much as we do!

Wrapping Paper Neighbor Gift Idea with Printable

I love neighbor gifts for the holidays! It is a great way to show your neighbors and friends that you are thinking about them during the holidays. The holiday season can get so crazy, sometimes you aren’t able to visit friends as much as you wish, so giving a little gift is a nice way to show them that you are still thinking about them! Neighbor gifts can be really hard because the price can really start adding up when you are buying for so many people and making treats for so many people can be extremely time consuming. I love giving gifts that people will be able to use, which is why I loved the idea of giving wrapping paper as a gift so that they could use it to wrap their Christmas gifts this season!

Our 2016 Christmas Cards

As much as technology has taken over all of our lives, I really appreciate getting traditional mail. I love the act of walking out to the mailbox, pulling out envelopes and opening them up to see what was sent! Everyone knows that this is even better during the holiday season! Seeing family Christmas cards is one of my favorite parts about this season! We have ordered our holiday cards from Shutterfly for the past 7 years! Before we even had kids, I wanted to make it a point to send out cards because I knew that our loved ones would appreciate the thought that went into them.

It is pretty amazing to see how many different styles of holiday cards that Shutterfly has created over the years. There are SO many options now! I usually try a different style each year. This year, we tried out the glitter holiday cards and they are awesome! The sparkle doesn’t rub off and they just make the card look a little more festive!

The holiday season is upon us. As enjoyable as the holidays are, they can also bring a lot of unnecessary stress. I don’t know about you, but when I am stressed out, I freak out. I pretty much have a melt down when I finally get to the point that I feel so stressed that I might explode. Between holiday decor, gifts, parties, food, and winter driving conditions, I start feeling completely overwhelmed. I have learned over the years that it is important to be prepared before too much holiday craziness comes into my life. I am excited to share a few of my stress-free holiday tips.
