Today I’m having a little fun and sharing one more gift idea...this is one that teachers can give their students’ families. It’s my “Dear Parents, Tag! You Are It!” end of the school year gift idea! Let’s be honest, it’s funny because it’s true! 😂 😂 With this little gift idea, teachers can thank their students (and their parents) for a great year and get them summertime ready with some sidewalk chalk or bubbles! I found these ice cream cone bubbles at the Dollar Tree (swipe to see them in the second and third photos). They were in a pack of three for $1! I think they’re so cute!! 🍦☀️🍦☀️ Be sure to grab the free printable tags at the link in my profile, friends! 💕

It’s Day 4 of Just Add Confetti Teacher Appreciation gift ideas, friends! 🎉 I’m so excited to share my sweet “Bloom in your Classroom” flower teacher gift with you all today. 🌼🌼🌼 I think this idea is so cute and perfect for Spring, teacher appreciation, and the end of the school year. I love the idea of taping the tag to a ruler as the “stake” in the soil of the potted plant. It also works so well to represent the idea of “growing.” 🌱📏If you want to make this gift for the teachers in your life, be sure to grab the free printable tag at the link in my profile! 💛

Grab some scratch off lottery tickets, chocolate foil wrapped coins, and my printable and you’ll be set! I really loved designing this one. I love the slot machine and the idea of switching out the traditional row of three cherries and replacing it with apples for teacher appreciation. 🍎🍎🍎 Have a great weekend, friends! Be sure to check back on Monday for another new teacher gift idea!


Time for Day 2 of Just Add Confetti Teacher Appreciation gift ideas, friends!! 🌯🌯🌯 If you have an “un-burrito-ble” teacher in your life, that really is all that and a bag of chips, then this one is for you! 😂 I am always looking for fun ways to dress up gift cards and it’s no secret that I absolutely love @chipotlemexicangrill so this idea was pretty much a match made in guac heaven for me! 🥑🌶️ If you want to make this teacher appreciation gift idea (and surely make your teacher laugh) grab the free printable at the link in my profile! ❤️ Check back tomorrow for another fun gift idea!


Today marks Day 1 of Just Add Confetti Teacher Appreciation gift ideas! 🎉🍪🍎 Over the next few days I’ll be sharing several different teacher appreciation gift ideas to get you ready for teacher appreciation day/week next month. As I know I’ve mentioned before, the work, love, energy and dedication of teachers holds a special place in my heart. I see it firsthand as my husband is a teacher and my mom is a retired teacher. So lets show all the remarkable teachers in our lives some love...starting with our first idea…my oven mitt “smart cookie” teacher gift! This is so sweet and easy to assemble. You can see all the details and grab the free printable at the link in my profile. ❤️ Check back tomorrow for another fun teacher gift idea!


Sharing some last few details of the kid’s table we created for our Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom Party! At the kids table, our little fairy and elf party guests found gold crowns, fairy wings, and elf hats at their place settings. I also put squares of artificial grass under each of the plates to add to the theme and atmosphere. To transform the drink bottles, I added a bottle wrap label and then glued the star from the top of Holly‘s wand to the purple straw. You can find all of the free printables from this party at the link in my profile! 🍄🌱🐞✨ Tomorrow, I’ll be starting a series of teacher appreciation gift ideas that I will be sharing over the next few days. Be sure to check back! So excited to share these cute ideas with you all! ❤️ #sponsored #benandhollyslittlekingdom


Starting this week off with a little magic! ✨ Princess Holly’s magic wand made the cutest party favor at our Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom Party. These little wands can hold any candies or treats you would like. I think they are also the perfect fit for a princess necklace or bracelet! I have included the step-by-step instructions for this sweet little DIY (as well as the free printable tag) on the blog! ⭐️🍄🍃 #sponsored #benandhollyslittlekingdom


Another fun little detail from our Ben & Holly’s Little Kingdom Party was The Great Elf Tree, Ben Elf’s home. In the show, everything is very, very small. In this tiny land, even flowers and grasses grow above the tallest towers! When planning the tablescape, it was so fun to try to convey the scale of the large grasses and flowers in juxtaposition with the tiny Little Kingdom where Ben and Holly live. Also, I love the graphic style of the show. The flat color illustrations and layers of foliage and flowers were all something that I wanted to portray. After I created the backdrop grasses and flowers out of paper next I added real, woodgrain textures, in the form of tree stumps and slabs. The largest tree stump was the perfect size to be transformed into The Great Elf Tree! Of course, sitting at the very top we had to have “Ben Elf Rice Krispie Hats” 💙 These were another favorite! Rice Krispie treats covered in blue candy melts with green candy leaves! 🌱🍄🐞#sponsored #benandhollyslittlekingdom


Two ingredient veggie flowers...doesn’t get easier than that!! They are so simple...I’m talking 5 minutes and you’re done, simple! Start by slicing a cucumber and carrot. Then, take your cucumber slices and cut a triangular notch out of each one to create the “leaves” of your flower. I also cut a tiny bit off of the bottom of the cucumber slice so that it would be able to sit up vertically on the pedestal. Next, cut two triangular notches out of each carrot slice. This will create the flower. Lastly, pierce a toothpick in both the carrot and cucumber to hold your flower together. (Just advise little party guests to be aware of the toothpick at time of eating.) To display “Gaston’s Veggie Garden” I added some edible Easter grass to the bottom of the pedestal and created some “hills” behind the carrot flowers with green Hostess Sno-balls. So fun! 🥕🥒🥕#sponsored #benandhollyslittlekingdom
