Birthday Printables


Pirate Party Table

I recently put together a quick and easy Nautical Party Tablescape using the Recollections™ Craft It™ party décor items from Michaels. All the decorations came together in less than a half an hour, thanks to the convenience of the line. Now that’s a really big deal, cause you know the “party moms” out there? The ones who start planning birthday parties 6 months in advance and spend hours and hours creating and decorating for that party? Whelp, I’m not that mom. So the fact that this went together so quickly with so little effort is a really big deal! I’m all about the shortcuts!

Nautical Party

The cake topper was made with 2 skewers, a piece of bakers twine with flags from the line attached with glue dots.

Pirate Party

The same flags were attached to skewers to create these donut kabobs. I think the crumb donut holes look like they’re covered in sand

Quick Ideas for Nautical Party

The blue banner was create from a pack of patterned triangles that I attached to baker’s twine with mini clothespins

Fingerprint Bugs

Fingerprint Bugs!

I’m excited to kick off Bug Week here on our Little Red Hen Summer Survival Series. These Fingerprint Bugs are so simple and fun for the kiddos. I loved watching to see what my girls would come up with.  Here’s what you’ll need.

Fingerprint-bugs-stamps

First off, download the fingerprint bug jar printable below. I printed these off onto some card stock so the stamps would not leak through the paper.  You could do regular copy weight if you’d like.
Download Grab some stamps or you could even use finger paints. I had a fun variety of stamps from Close to My Heart.

If you also have a nice fine tip black pen or maker they work well for adding finishing touches to the bugs.

Start by reading your favorite bug book. We read Bugs Galore

bugs galore

This book gave my girls some fun ideas on what bugs to add to their fingerprint bugs.

making-finger-print-bugs

Then I gave them the paper and stamps and they were off.

fingerprint-bug-making

Of course girls have to add flowers right?

fingerprint-bugs-kids

finger-print-bugs-with-kids

I was so amazed at their ability to make these bugs come to life.  They made each jar a little cozy home for their bugs. The best part is it kept them busy for a solid 30 minutes. I’m sure I could print more sheets out and they would keep making bugs.

Stay tuned the rest of this week as we celebrate all things BUGS!

Hi everyone! I’m Kiki from Kiki and Company and am so excited to be here this week for Fairytale Week. Growing up, I LOVED Fairy Tales. I loved to be read to, love to read them myself and eventually loved watching them as movies too! This summer, I am trying to add to my collection of fun things for my kiddos to do inside and thought this would be a perfect time to make a fun Fairy Tale Match game so that we could review them together!

Fairy Tale Match from kiki and company.

 

Playing this is a really fun way to involve kids of all ages, but also a great time to share some of your favorite Fairy Tales with them too! I had my 3 year old, 6 year old and 9 year old all playing at the same time…and it was FUN.

FAIRYTALE MATCH PRINTABLE CARDS

To make this game is SUPER simple.

SUPPLIES

  • free printables at the end of this post
  • glue (I used a spray glue)
  • scissors

DIRECTIONS

  • Download, Print and Cut out free printables
  • Spray glue on wrong side of patterned side and place red polka dot paper on back
  • Smooth out any bumps quickly and make sure to seal sides well
  • You are done!

Fairy Tale Match from kiki and company. LOVE it!

Hello! It’s Ginger from GingerSnapCrafts.com. I am sooooo excited to be back here today sharing this fun birthday gift idea! Yay! I have loved my previous visits with the Chicks when I shared a colorful burlap wreath & an easy chalkboard inspired spring block. Over on my blog I love sharing easy, simple & fun projects, recipes & ideas. I’m also a mom to 5 kiddos, & they keep me busy! One of my kiddos is almost a senior! Gulp! How did that happen? It won’t be too long before he leaves the nest & takes off on his own. I’m not too sure I’m ready! ha! Today I am sharing this easy Party in a Can tutorial with you with FREE birthday printable! This would be the perfect gift to send to your college student or missionary on their birthday. You better believe I’ll be sending a gift just like this to my kiddos when they are older. You can’t have a birthday without a little party! This would also make a great gift for a neighbor or friend. So let’s get started!

Party in a Can #birthday #party #giftidea

 

birthday party in a can printable label

You’ll need a few supplies:

empty paint can (I bought mine for about $5 at Home Depot. Look in the paint section.)
3 12×12 pieces of scrapbook paper
white card stock
this printable
spray adhesive
ribbon

First, you will print out your label. Then I used the print & cut feature with my Silhouette to cut it out in a circle. You could also use a circle cutter or paper trimmer to cut it out.

Silhouette Print & Cut 600

Next I cut 2 pieces of scrapbook paper the same height as my can. You’ll need 2 pieces of 12×12 paper to fit around your can. Be sure to measure & cut a little notch to fit around the handle on each side of the scrapbook paper.

I also used my Silhouette to cut a circle for the lid.

Next I used some spray adhesive to put the paper on my can. I love this stuff! It’s one of favorite craft products EVER!!! 🙂

Now my can looked like this! Isn’t it cute? ha!

Then using the spray adhesive I attached the birthday label right to the front of my can.

Now it was time to fill this baby up! ha!

Some ideas for your party can >>>>> cake mix, icing, cupcake liner, sprinkles, confetti, candles, balloons, streamers, party favors, party decor, candy for decorating, notes & gift cards

Then I put everything inside! It was pretty tight fit, but the mission was accomplished. ha!

Then I put the lid back on, and then I sealed it with a rubber mallet. I added a tag & can opener on the side with some cute ribbon.

I love how it turned out! This is THE perfect gift for someone far away. Pop it in the mail, and then just imagine their happy face when they open their package!
