Every year growing up for TThanksgiving we had a kids table. All the cousins would be there and we would just have fun visiting and playing together for the holiday. I though for this year I would make something cute and useable for our kids table. So I came up with this adorable Turkey Crayon holder. It makes and adorable center piece and holds your kiddos crayons for something to do. Watch for my kids activity page to go with it in a couple weeks! Just in time for the Turkey!

I love holiday shopping and finding great deals on toys, clothes and Tech. Each year I try to start early and end early. This year is no different. But I save those gifts on my list that will go on sale to buy closer to Christmas. That's why I love shipping at Target. They have amazing deals on toys, clothing and electronics in December! And I can buy every family member a gift in one store! Check out my gift ideas for my kiddos this year. My little's loved our shopping day at Target. They found lots of Toys to add to Santa's List.

Do you have a guy who love gadgets and gizmos? If so this may be the perfect gift. Do you remember Mac Guyver from when you were a kid?? My family loved it. Know you can watch it on Netflix. So I sat my kids down and showed them a few episodes. It is a little hokey looking back but if nothing else it brings back the creativity and problem solving kids need. Andie from Maybe I will came up with this adorable kit for her son and he is in love. I used it as part of my TV segment. He was thrilled when I brought it back home. Needless to say it was a hit! So head on over and check it out!

Make your own fun and educational lacing boards for your kids!
These lacing cards will definitely keep little hands busy and entertained in the car, on a plane, at restaurants, church or even while mom's trying to get dinner ready.
Lacing toy's encourage dexterity, fine motor skills, coordination and attention to detail, all while enjoying every minute of it.
I purchased the supplies at the dollar store.
A cardboard puzzle, a foam puzzle and two books with
the really thick pages.
I started with the Disney book and cut out the board pages.
This one book will give us six lacing cards.
The foam puzzle I left alone, but I took the cardboard puzzle
and glued the pieces so it would'nt come apart.
Next I took a sharpie and put a dot everywhere
I wanted a hole to be.
Then we drilled a hole on every dot!
I purchased a few bright colored shoe laces
from the dollar store to lace with.
You will need a long shoelace for each board.
You can let the kids take it from here.
They will have countless hours of fun!

I found these cute candy watches the other day at the dollar store. I loved these as a kid and begged my mom to buy me one at the store. Do you remember them?? Candy necklaces, lipstick and bracelets. They were the best. Well my little miss saw them and wanted them to. And for only a buck who can say no? So I came up with this sweet, easy valentine for her to help make. I used one of my favorite things... Washi Tape!

This year for my boys teacher, I wanted to find something fun and humorous for them. I thought this little saying says it all. "I hope you Valentines doesn't Suck this year. I paired with with one of those cool drinking cups that are ever so popular. Fill it with a yummy treat and you are ready to go.

I found a large package of boxed stickers at the dollar store. My little girls loves stickers. She sticks them wherever she can. I thought they would make a great valentine for a preschool or kindergarten class. I made a cute printable to print and stick to the front of the box. Or print and attach to glow sticks, pixie sticks, gum or those little sticky hands that kids love to get in the 25 cent machine.(I think they sell the sticky hands in bulk at a party store like Zurchers or Party city.)
