Crafty Thanksgiving Ideas for Kids

I had so much fun in October making Halloween treats. And you all seemed to like them too- because several of you have reached out and asked for Thanksgiving ideas! I will probably make most of my 'crafty' foods the actual week of Thanksgiving. But I thought I would do a round up today of the ideas I am hoping to create. I think this will give both you and I, a 'head-start' on some Thanksgiving fun.

Fall Crafting Ideas

October has just flown by! I did my best to squeeze in all those fun Fall/Halloween ideas I have been saving on Pinterest. Here are a few of the things I have been making.

My PTA friend, Sheri and I put together a "Trail Mix Bar" for the teachers at the middle school. They loved it! We made little tags for the bags, and the teachers filled them with their choice of trail mix ingredients.

80s DIY Costume & Photo Props

Who doesn't love the 80's?! My oldest had her first middle school social and it was '80s themed'. Having a daughter is basically like having a life-sized doll that you get to dress up :)

On Trend: Letter Boards

Are you on the "Letter Board" trend? I have not bought one--- I just keep pinning them. (So that's pretty much the same thing-- right?) I think letter boards have replaced the chalk board. They are pleasing to the eye, require no fancy hand-lettering skills, and they are easy to use.

Donut Themed PTA Event

To kick off the beginning of the school year, PTA does a big membership drive. The goal of PTA is to get families involved at school and advocate for children's education. To do this, local PTA's encourage parents and families to become members. Then PTA shares ways they can get 'plugged in' on their child's campus. To make this whole membership thing more fun-- we set up a 'meet and greet' at our school's "Meet the Teacher" event. We had a donut table and photo booth with the idea of "I DONUT about you, but I am joining PTA!". Food puns make everything better right???

"Game of Thrones" PTA Luncheon

This year I am all about the PTA! As you know, I have always loved volunteering at my girls' school. But this year I am kicking it into high gear! Since I am not teaching preschool, I am completely submerging myself in all things 'volunteer' related. At Maisy's elementary school, I am the Council Delegate and President Elect. And at Afton's new middle school, I am co-chairing the Teacher Appreciation position. I love getting to do so much at both their schools. It has helped me make friends, as well as get to know the staff better too.

Almost Fearless: Family Vacation to Lake Tahoe & Yosemite

Summer flew by and now we are knee-deep in school, sports, dance, cheer and the general busy-ness of life with kids. I finally got a chance to pull all my family photos together from our big summer trip into one blog post.  For those of you who have known us for years, you know that I keep all my family photos and stories on our family blog. Then once a year, I print that blog into a book. It looks like a coffee table book  and it is full of all the photos and stories of our family - for each year. So as I was compiling that - I thought I would share our trip here with you too! I hope it helps inspire you to take your kids to California or somewhere 'out-doorsy' soon!

My husband loves to plan trips. This one was a two-parter. (Lake Tahoe and then Yosemite National Park.) So, first we flew to Sacramento and drove to Tahoe. We stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Tahoe which is about a 15-20 minute drive from the actual lake. After checking in, we drove down to the lake and explored Kings Beach. Lake Tahoe has 70 miles of shoreline and the water is a brisk 55 degrees. The girls jumped right in!

Tips for Broken Bow, Oklahoma

Are you up for another travel post? I haven't been sharing many 'craft posts' this summer. It seems like traveling and playing with my kids has taken over my craft time ;) But I promise this post will bring you both a craft and some travel tips for Broken Bow, Oklahoma. So let's get to it!

Horseshoe Bay Resort - with Kids

We have been "on the go" a lot this summer. Due to the way the 4th of July fell on the calendar this year, Jeff ended up with a nice long weekend. So we decided to do a little get away with the girls to Horseshoe Bay.

7 Days in Nevis

Each year, my husband's company takes the top performers on a 'once in a lifetime' vacation to celebrate their accomplishments. And this year- Jeff's hard work earned us a trip to Nevis! I had never heard of Nevis prior to his win. But now... I will never forget it.
