Science Teacher Gift Idea - Periodic Element Thank You

Teacher Appreciation week is coming up and I’ve been trying to think of a thoughtful gift to give when I saw these Method Pink Grapefuit Cleaners caught. These are my all time favorite cleaner (they’re even on my Amazon subscribe and save). Nothing freshens up a room like a citrus scent! And well, kids are messy and smelly so I figured teachers will appreciate it as much as mom’s do. When giving teacher gifts I aim for a consumable, something they can enjoy and use up so it doesn’t create clutter. And I try to not give treats or food, unless I know what their favorites are.

Spring Cleaning Checklist

Hello again Crafting Chicks! I’m Michelle from Michelle Lea Creative. Today I am sharing with you one of my favorite things! You’ll laugh when I tell you that it is a Cleaning Checklist. I love this cleaning checklist and use it each week to keep the house picked up and ready for a knock on the door. I have to be honest though… there are many times when I would die if someone showed up. My house can look like an episode of Hoarders on certain occasions. This cleaning list is meant to encourage you to do a little at a time and stay on top of your calendar for the next day… not to remind you of what you haven’t accomplished. There are far more important things than a spotless house.

My cleaning list doesn’t involve cleaning for hours each day. I believe in breaking things down into 15 minute or less tasks. The cleaning list also targets a different area/task each day. A big helper for me is preparing for the next day at night when the house is calm.

I have also listed 7 deep cleaning items to tackle each month. I typically work on them on the weekend or a day that I have caught up…. or when those dust bunnies on the fans have driven me crazy.

Cleaning Tips from the not at all great cleaner 🙂

1. Keep your cleaning products in a location that makes sense. I have all of my extra bottles in our laundry room, but I keep the supplies that I need to clean up the kitchen under my kitchen sink. I also keep the supplies needed for the bathroom in one central bathroom. This helps to cut down on my time spent running all around the house for the right cleaning supply.

2. Limit yourself to cleaners that do double and triple duty. I know that there are some cleaners that you just have to have, like stainless steel cleaner. But I use my window cleaner for way more surfaces than just windows and mirrors.

3. Have an area just inside the door you use to enter the house to drop your shoes, backpacks, etc. Leaving shoes at the door cuts down drastically on the dirt, mud and icky stuff that ends up all over your floors. I also use this area for keys and all of the mountain of things that I transfer to and from my car.

4. 15 minutes. When areas are getting out of control or you just don’t feel up to cleaning. Set a timer for 15 minutes and get everything done that you can and then give yourself a break and relax. You will be amazed at how relaxed you are after and how willing you are to finish cleaning and tidying up the rest beyond that 15 minutes.

5. Amazon Subscribe and Save. This probably sounds funny to some people. But I order my toilet paper, paper towels, detergents (dish, washer, and dishwasher), and cat food from Amazon Subscribe and Save. It automatically sends out another shipment at the interval that you choose and you typically get a discounted price for your larger quantity order. I’m also an Amazon Prime member so I get free 2 day shipping which is soooo awesome!

Years ago, I had tons of cleaners for every little situation. And I still have a few unusual cleaners in the back of my cabinet, but these are my everyday messy tacklers. I also really don’t like chemical smells, so many of the cleaners I use are more natural… at least to my nose.

let us do the dishes gift tag

I love giving little Christmas gifts, and neighbor gifts are about as small as they come. Although, inexpensive gifts don’t have to be dumb.  When it comes to neighbor gifts 3 things make it a success, in my opinion.

1. No Calories

2. Useable

3. Nothing to store

And if it has a cute and clever tag to go with it, all the better!

These “dishes” tags make giving a practical gift easy. It says “Lets our family help your family do the dishes this busy holiday season.” There are quite a few variations you can give with the tag.

dish soap / dishes christmas tag

You can tie it on to a bottle of dish soap.

Plates Gift Tag

Tape it onto a package of paper plates. I would sure love an excuse to not have to do dishes and a stack of paper plates would help for quite a few meals!

detergent gift tag

Or clip it on a package of dishwasher detergent. I won’t load the dishes, but these detergent tabs will make sure they are clean!

I made a sweet little jar that will hold all of the feathers and pens by simply wrapping a mason jar with some fun paper and ribbons.

Hi everyone, Kiki from Kiki and Company and I am back to share a fun craft project to do with your kiddos this Halloween season. My kids LOVE Halloween. They love to WEAR Halloween on their shirts, their socks, and anything else they can get their hands on! So today, I thought it would be fun to do just that. Today we are going to make rings for Halloween and they couldn’t be easier!

Halloween Rings from kiki and company. Love these!

 

 

To begin you will need the following:

  • Free Halloween Printables
  • Ring bases similar to THESE
  • Hot Glue gun and glue
  • Modge Podge or Diamond Glaze

Halloween Rings from kiki and company. So easy and cute!

 

To make the rings couldn’t be simpler:

  1. Download, print and cut out ring printables
  2. Hot glue onto ring base.
  3. Put a few layers of Modge Podge (the glitter one would be fun!) or use Diamond Glaze to add a nice finish and hardness to the top of the ring.
  4. That’s it! You are done!

Halloween Rings from kiki and company. My kiddos will LOVE making these

 

It is so fun doing simple projects with your kids, and this is definitely one that they will love doing with you and wearing around Halloween time!

Halloween Rings from kiki and company. Cute!
