We’re counting down to Thanksgiving around here. Last night at dinner, we each shared one thing for which we have to be thankful. We have a book we write them in, but I created a free printable that I think would be great to use daily or at Thanksgiving dinner. I put mine in a frame and put out a wet erase marker. I was surprised and delighted to see that almost everyone who visits our home has written something on it, and I didn’t even have to ask them to do it.
It’s my hope that this Thanksgiving season will truly be filled with more gratitude and thanksgiving for all the blessings we’ve been given!
One of the things at our little man’s party that ended up being so fun was the photo booth.
We just set up the foyer with a backdrop (tablecloth) and some buildings (boxes). We provided masks (David’s collection) and some signs and let our guests have fun with it. The boxes were various ones from our many orders from Amazon. My crafty daughter painted them black and then stuck aluminum foil squares on it to make the windows.
The signs were from a blog and were part of a pack of free printables. We laminated them and placed them in the dress up box.
I loved how creative some people were.
This was just such a simple thing; but it really added such a fun and memorable touch to his party.
I always love putting together a cute goody bag for the party-goers to enjoy at home. I try to make everything fit with the theme in some way. For this party, I let David paint his hand print on a white bag and when it was dry, I made it into a Spider-Man.
We filled the bag with fun little things. Each bag had a silly straw (Target’s dollar bin), strawberry applesauce pouch and Avenger fruit snacks (both from Kroger), Spider-man gummy, sweet tarts, and a lollipop (Wal-Mart). It also had a container of silly string (Dollar Tree or Target’s dollar bin) which had a label on it that said “Web Blaster”. It was a free printable from Reading Confetti. I also put some Spider-Man stickers and a bug viewer (both from Oriental Trading) in each bag.
Everyone seemed to enjoy their treat to take home.
