A Valentines Day Countdown for Kids

Check out this Valentines Day Countdown for kids! I've included instructions to make your own Valentines Countdown and a couple of lists of Kid Friendly Valentine's Day Activities and FREE Valentine printables for kids!


For Valentine's Day this year, I wanted to do some fun things with my kids so we put together this Valentine Countdown for Kids! There is a little envelope for each day and inside is a little note, with a valentine activity for the kids or the family to do together that day, in preparation for Valentine's Day!  I'm excited about the things on our list (which I will share in this post)!

Snowman Snowball Toss Game

Here's a simple Snowman Snowball Toss Game that we played at Katrina's Frozen birthday party one year. I'll tell you how to play, what you need, and where to buy fake snowballs if you want to use them!

This game was a definite hit with the party guests- what could be better than indoor snowball games, without the cold?

31 Days to Declutter Challenge Worksheet

The 31 Days to Declutter Challenge for 2021 starts in a few days!

While you don't have to come up with a plan for each day of the month ahead of time, it may help you to brainstorm some ideas now, so that it's easier to decide what to declutter each day.

Of course you can just grab a piece of lined paper & make a numbered list of your areas, but if you'd like the ease of this simple worksheet I created, here it is!

5 Benefits of Setting Goals & Writing them Down

We all know it's important to have goals, but have you thought about the benefits of setting goals by writing them down and breaking them down into smaller pieces?  Here are 5 good reasons why you should!

I find it helpful to get things simplified and organized before taking on a new project. (If you're interested, you can always go back & try the 31 Days to Declutter Challenge any time) 

How breaking goals up into smaller steps helps

Today's post focuses on 5 Benefits I've noticed from setting goals, planning them out, and organizing those plans with worksheets (I've included some free ones here on the blog) or into a daily/weekly/monthly planner.

Rolling Stamp Wrapping Paper

When I saw these little foam shapes in a package at the store, I had the idea to use my rolling pin to create this rolling stamp wrapping paper. It turned out to be a really fun project with really cute results!

If you know us, you'll recognize that these are photos from an old project- we did this TEN years ago!
