Gingerbread 5K- Fundraising for Give Kids the World

gbr-logo

Just a quick update coming at ya. My children will be participating in the Give Kids the World Gingerbread 5K this year and are fundraising for this event. Give Kids the World is a charity right here in our backyard that has helped make dreams come true for over 146,000 families with terminally ill children. Give Kids the World is a storybook resort that offers all expenses paid for their families and offer so many magical amenities. To read more about this charity please visit their website http://www.gktw.org

My children are only 7 and 12, but have big hearts and have a passion for helping others and sharing God’s love within our community. They are trying to raise $1,000 for this event and I am asking all of my readers to stand with these munchkins and help them make a difference here in Kissimmee with Give Kids the World by sponsoring them with a monetary donation on our GoFundMe and/or purchasing a pair of these super cute Lego Earrings that my daughter has made and is selling on Etsy. The earrings are $8 a pair and 75% of the funds will go to Give Kids the World towards their fundraising goal. The remaining amount is for supplies and race fees.

 

Thank you for your support! Please share with your friends and family.

Lightsaber DIY

noodle

Star Wars Lightsaber from a pool noodle!!!   This is a fun DIY that is perfect for the lil Jedi in your life!

All you need for this DIY project:

pool noodle

electrical tape

duck tape

You can find all materials at the Dollar Tree.  To make a double sided lightsaber just place two stripes of the gray duck tape in the center of the noodle.  Make stripes and buttons using the black electrical tape.  Smaller lightsabers can be made by cutting the noodle in half and placing the duck tape and electrical tape on one end of noodle.

Now get ready for hours of fun as you and your child engage in the ultimate galactic battle!  Perfect fun for a Star Wars party theme for all ages!

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, my friends!  Lucky me, I’m Irish and I am super proud of my heritage and our family traditions!

Speaking of traditions….a few years ago we were visited by a very mischievous leprechaun, who called himself Leppy.  Every St. Patrick’s Day since, my children have tried to catch Leppy by making a very intriguing trap filled with gold coins and every year he gets away!!!  But not before he takes the time to stir up some trouble around the house and a message with some SKITTLES!  Better luck next year!

As you can see he made a mess with the toothpaste and left the kids a shamrock clue on the wall!  In an effort to trap him and demand he take us to his pot of gold…we failed…or did we?  The kids scored another clue!!!  Skittles!

Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

1It’s Seuss Day!!!!  We had a lot of fun putting this look together!  We had a shirt from a Penguin play that was perfect for this Cat in the Hat look.  We paired it with a pair of black shorts and knee high black socks.  For the hat, we took red felt and glued on white paper for the stripes.  We rounded the felt and glued the edges together making a pipe hat.  Once dried, we stuffed the center of the pipe hat with tissue paper and secured it to a white paper plate.  We punched two holes on either side and attached stretch cord.  Using white and black face paint to create the Cat look we magically transformed this  adorable child into the Cat in the Hat!
