Let the kids do the work >> We're getting close to Mother's Day and one of the printable games by Print Games Now most loved by moms is the Mother's Day Treasure Hunt. It's packed with tasks for Dad and the kids to complete around the house, made fun in the context of a game. Just copy and paste this link into an email to your husband and let him take it from there. All he needs to do is to print the game out on your home printer early on Mother's Day morning (or better yet, the night before) to keep the kids busy while you sleep in!
If you and your family have not yet seen Disney Pixar's Coco, we highly recommend you head to the nearest theaters ASAP! This is easily one of our all time favorite movies. Coco is an educational, adorable and heart-warming animated film about Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). If you and your children are a fan of the movie seriously consider using the movie to inspire your next birthday party. Not only will your party be visually brilliant, its beautiful meaningful message will set your party apart from the rest, in only good ways! (This is a great theme for classroom parties as well).

What could be easier? Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties. We plan the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food. But we never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves. (except for children's parties where we plan and schedule every minute).
And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there. It is then we realize things aren't going so well. We have had political conversations go ballistic and strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing. There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation. That's where these Halloween printable games come in extraordinarily handy. In just a few minutes, we can change the course of the evening. Don't get caught in a scary spot. Plan ahead this Halloween by having a stack of pre-printed games ready at a moments notice. Have a fun-filled Halloween and party hearty!
One more thought … many of these print and play games work great in a classroom. Some are even customizable so you can tailor them to your lesson or set them aside for your classroom Halloween celebration.
Late summer and fall weddings are just around the corner so it is time to start thinking about your flowers. We love the idea of using gorgeous succulents, air plants, and wild and dried flowers to create fabulous bridal bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages. Best yet, not only are the bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages long lasting, they can be easily unwrapped and planted after your big day. Additionally, using succulents for your wedding flowers offers two more distinct advantages
- Succulent bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages are an eco-friendly choice for upcycling your wedding flowers.
- You and your wedding party can enjoy your wedding bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages for years to come.
We are particularly enamored with the showcased airplant boutonnieres and wildflower boutonnieres. These particular boutonnieres feature oregano, dried blooms, and assorted wild flowers, with a twine treatment on the stem. How fabulous! Here is another image showing the variety and detail available. Best yet, they are only $14.00 each! Continue Reading →
