We have all been blessed with talents and around our house I always teach my kids that practice makes us better. I thought it would be fun to create something fun for both me and the kids this month. My kids love being creative and I have been practicing my hand lettering this year. I thought a hand lettered printable coloring page would be something fun that we could all do together.
Get the kids in the kitchen to help make this fun Halloween treat. These OREO bat treats take 3 ingredients and 5 minutes to put together. Hi there! It’s Liz from Liz on Call and I’m excited to share with you this fun and easy Halloween treat to make with the kids.
One of my favorite things to do is give gifts. And teacher gifts are no exception. I love showing our appreciation to all those amazing teachers. I think a gift doesn’t have to be extravagant to be special. Simple gifts that are thoughtful or will mean a lot to the recipient are what’s important. Usually I don’t know all the little details of what a teacher does and doesn’t like. I give a gift that I hope they will like. But this year I thought I’d actually find out what my kids’ teachers really like.
For my family, get togethers either include the mountains or a pool. But I’ll take either. I also love doing fun activities with the kids for holidays to make special memories. Entertain the kids at your 4th of July get together with this fun free printable 4th of July word search.
Since my kids love helping in the kitchen, I thought it would be fun to let them help put together a fun and healthy snack. I had some yummy summer fruit in the fridge and decided fruit kabobs would be fun to make with the kids. I didn’t have any skewers but I had toothpicks, so mini fruit kabobs it would have to be. And they loved it!!

Some of you may still be experiencing some very cold weather so these popsicles might not be something you are thinking about now. Make sure and pin this recipe for when it starts to warm up. Your family will love them. And I say family because even my hubby enjoyed these lime popsicles.
This word search is one of those small activities I like to do with my kids to get them excited for an upcoming holiday. My son has asked me at least once a week if it’s time for him to wear his green yet. He is very worried about all the pinching. This St. Patrick’s Day word search will be a fun activity to do with the kids to not only help them get excited about St. Patrick’s Day, but learn a little something about it as well.
My daughter always wants to help me in the kitchen. Many times I am in a rush and don’t take the time for a little helper. As parents we can get so wrapped up in our busy schedule and the responsibilities of life and parenthood, that we may forget the importance of time with our kids. So we headed into the kitchen to make these chocolate covered strawberry crispy rice treats.
There is nothing I love more than baking treats during the holidays. Not only do I love baking treats, I love giving these homemade treats to our neighbors and friends. I know it’s not always easy to find the time to make homemade, so I try to find simple, but delicious recipes that I know everyone will love. That’s why these Christmas Tree OREO Cookie ball pops are such a great treat to make for gifting.
One of the easiest ways for me to focus on my kids during the holidays is to get them in the kitchen with me, making yummy treats for our friends and neighbors. It’s also more fun for the kids to deliver our goodies if they were involved in the making of the treats.
Crafting with candy is a sure fire way to get kids wanting to get creative. When candy is involved, I know my kids will be up for anything. 🙂 My son is a builder. He tells me that all he wants to do is build. Knowing his love for building (and candy) we used some Airheads candy to make a Snoopy Dog house.
