Free Printable Calendar – January 2014 (winter princess theme)

Published January 1, 2014 by MisMandie

I couldn’t find a printable calendar series for this year that I liked so I decided to make my own….here is January 2014 if anyone is interested (Winter Princess theme )  Feel free to use and pass along if you like for personal use.   I complied and arranged this calendar, but the images are NOT MINE, they were found via internet search and are the property of the image creator.

It is created in Word so you can add images and text before printing to keep your little one up to date on the upcoming events of the month. I have a few on there for Em already that you can reuse or delete for her checkup, art classes, and PapPap’s birthday day 🙂

What to do:

  • Cut out the shapes
  • Apply more glue to the top 1/3 of each stick and then place on the back of the mask to create a handle

Treasure Box – A 5 min craft project for kids of ALL ages!

Published September 5, 2012 by MisMandie

What you will need:

  • Cigar Box or similar (most tobacco shops will give you one free of charge if you ask!)
  • Pretty Duct Tape or Contact Paper
  • Foam Stickers (or normal stickers)

What to do:

  • Cover the lid inside and out and the sides of the box with your duct tape or contact paper.  I Used a beautiful butterfly print duct tape, but after all the stickers were on, it looked a bit busy so a simpler base might be better, but she still loves it! 🙂
  • Now let your little on go nuts peeling and sticking all over to make it their own.  They will work on their fine motor skills while making something that is just for them.
  • Now fill it up with all your little one’s treasures and have a blast!

Simple and Sweet Mother’s Day Gift

Published May 12, 2012 by MisMandie

This is what my little girl will be giving her Grammas this Mother’s Day.  They are accompanied with a note that reads: “This is just a little gift so that no matter where you are, I will Always be right beside you.”

What you will need:

What to Do:

  • Cut the photo to fit into one side of your compact.
  • Apply a generous and even amount of hot glue to the mirror surface and press the photo firmly and smoothly into place.

Notes:

  • The compacts I used are normal on one side and 5x on the other.  I used the magnified side to place my photo since NO WOMAN wants to see her face that close up lol 😉
  • Here is a link to the cards we will be giving as well since they were so darn cute, I had to share.  Text reads: “Everyone Needs a Fairy Godmother” – “Unless they have you for a grandmother.  Here’s wishing all of your dreams come true this mother’s day!”   ADORABLE!!!!!

Princess Tutu – Elmo Party Dress

Published March 5, 2012 by MisMandie

What You Will Need:

  • Tulle
  • Ribbon

What to Do:

  • Measure your child’s waist and cut your ribbon about 2 feet longer than that measurement.
  • Decide on the length you want and cut your tulle into 2 inch wide strips double the length you want.
  • Starting at the center of your ribbon begin knotting your strips by folding them in 1/2 then pulling the ends through the loop as shown in the photos above.
  • Keep going till you get the desired fullness and size.  Keep in mind it is easier to push them together a little tighter to shrink it than it is it pull them apart or add to it to make it bigger.
  • Leave about 1 foot of ribbon on each side so that you can tie a pretty bow in the back.

I paired mine with a cute Elmo T Shirt and White Lace Capri Leggings to make an adorable and comfortable party outfit and after the party it is a great addition to the dress up clothing collection 🙂

  • Thread
  • Ribbon (for Belle’s dress (optional)
