Halloween is just around the corner! My son is starting to get to the age that he really enjoys stuff like this, so I’m really excited about taking him trick-or-treating.
As much as I hate to admit it, the last 4-5 years my husband and I were one of the “lights off” houses. We lived on a street that didn’t get much halloween traffic though, so it was much easier to justify being “that” house. THIS year, however, we’re on a new street in a new home and are guaranteed to be seeing more than a few little ghosts and gobblins out there.
Unfortunately, my husband leaves on a business trip the morning of Halloween, so there won’t be anyone to stay and pass out candy while my son is collecting his own. Not only that, we’re also going to be missing a special trick or treat session organized for our local fifth graders.
SO, in an effort to redeem ourselves from the past several years, I created a “please take one” sign for our candy bucket that we plan to leave out on the porch!
I made two versions of the sign. One orange and black, and another with purple as well. Please feel free to download your own copy here!
special thanks to mjranum for the Halloween shape!
Valentine’s Day is only a few days away! It’s not a holiday that I’ve always been a huge fan of, but ever since I had my son it has started to grow on my a little more.
As I have mentioned previously, my son is a huge fan of all things cars. However, there are several little guys in his class who also love cars, and unfortunately there are only a few pre-made car valentines out there this year. I AM aware that the kids wouldn’t mind receiving the same valentines that they gave out to their friends, but decided to go ahead and make a printable valentine to use instead! Here’s a look at the finished product.
I also made another version using bees.
I’m pretty happy with how they turned out! Links to download all of the files shown in the photos above can be found here. All you need to do is print, cut, and assemble! No special printer needed (These were printed using an old all in one printer that is about 9 or 10 years old). Just note that colors will vary depending on your printer.
For reference, these were printed onto Canon Matte Photo Paper which I found at my local office supply store. Regular paper works fine, but the finish on this paper is a little bit smoother and the color tend to come out a little brighter.
Hope you like them!
Special thanks to Goodness and Fun for the car clip art!
