DIY Easter Bunny Banner

Last Spring I fell in love with an adorable Easter Bunny Banner from Pottery Barn. Instead of buying it though, I thought to myself, "I could make this!" And this weekend I did make it and it was SO easy!! I love it even more than the one at the store, because I got to choose my own floral/spring patterns.


Pictured below are the materials needed for this project. I bought the Floral Flair Stack (here) from the craft store and I love the variety of florals that it offers! You will also need a bunny pattern to trace onto your scrapbook paper. You can find different bunny patterns here, here, and here. I used my Cameo Silhouette to cut out my Easter bunnies, and I bought the patterned for less than $1.00 at the Silhouette Design Store. If you have your own Cameo, click (here) to get the bunny pattern!


After I cut all my bunnies out, I hot glued a white pom-pom onto each one. 


When the bunnies all had their little cotton tails, I arranged them to my liking and strung the bakers twine through the ears. And then, I was finished! I had a hard time deciding where to hang it, because it looked so cute everywhere. 


Happy Easter, Sweet Friends!

St. Patrick's Day Joke Book (Freebie)

For St. Patrick's Day, you can give your students this fun, free St. Patrick's Day Joke Book! (You can print one out for each child or make one for your classroom library and read the jokes to your students throughout the day on St. Patrick's Day.) But let me warn you, once you give your students these books, they will be telling you these jokes all week, so start practicing your fake laugh! Click on the image below to download.


Warning: These jokes are super cheesy and very silly! (Which is what makes them super perfect for your kids.) These books also make great reading practice, because they will want to tell these jokes over and over again. Kids love it when they have a joke to share with their friends and family!


Shamrock Measuring is another fun March activity that your students will love.

Don't Eat Pete! (St. Patrick's Day Themed)

Don't Eat Pete is a classic game my family has played for years and it's been around for forever! In fact, when I was a tween, I would take this game to every babysitting gig I had and all the kids loved it! This {free} silly game is perfect for class parties, family nights, holidays, or just for fun!


HOW TO PLAY: Place one candy/cereal in each square of the game board. Send the first child away from the room and have the remaining children choose which green monster will be "Pete". Then have the first child come back and begin eating the candy/cereal, one at a time. As soon as the child tries to pick up & eat the candy that is on the "Pete" monster, everyone yells, "Don't eat Pete!!!!" Refill the game board and play again with the next child. 

Hint: If you are playing with m&ms, then I'd recommend the mini m&ms. They are easier to eat quickly! :)


Click on the picture below to download this fun freebie. Be sure to print it on white card stock and laminate... if you don't laminate it, it won't last very long... trust me!
