This Thanksgiving will definitely be different than years past. If you’re like us, you will be celebrating the day with those in your own home. Even though you won’t be surrounded by family and friends this year, there are still some fun things you can do. Here are 5 things you could do to make this Thanksgiving a good one!
With the holidays here I thought this would be a good subject to touch on. Not only is it great information to have while you’re doing a lot of your shopping online but there’s been quite a bit of freebies being offered! There are a lot of companies who offer Free Stuff in exchange for liking them on Facebook, giving them your email address or mailing information. There are a TON of freebies that I do not post about because the site looks fishy or because the company isn’t reputable enough to not sell your personal information to other companies. I really do my best to make sure I post real deals from companies that have a “personal information” disclaimer.
It’s that time of year when it’s too cold to comfortably play outside. My kids tend to gravitate towards screens when they are getting “bored” and they say there is nothing to do. I’ve decided I need to make a list of things that the kids can do inside the house. There really is a lot for them to do, but they need options. So here are 20 fun things to do inside this winter!
Now that Halloween is over, do you have a TON of candy? What do you do with it? How do you minimize the intake of sugar for your kids? Here is a great way to solve all of your questions- Make a Christmas Countdown Chain! This chain seriously saves me from kid tantrums and tears. Instead of them asking every 10 minutes if they can have another piece of candy, they know that they get one piece a day and each day means it’s closer to Christmas! It does take some time, but the kids can help you out! Here’s how you do it:
I don’t know why but summer seems to fill up with fun activities and things to do so quickly yet when fall and thanksgiving break comes around I draw a blank. It’s like I’m burnt out all my fun ideas for the kids over the summer and am still recovering when Thanksgiving rolls around. So before it’s here and we’re trying to find some last minute ideas of what to do, I’ve put together a fun list of things we can do while the kids are out of school or just need something fun to do on the weekend!
This year since a pandemic is raging around our country, Halloween will be a little different. We might be staying indoors and surrounded by our own family members. I was trying to think of some fun things for the kids to do this Halloween and I think I found them! There are TONS of super cute dessert and craft ideas that you can make with the kids this year. I’ve narrowed it down to 5 that I love. Hopefully these will be a favorite for you too!
This year will be a little different than past years for Halloween. Getting together in big groups and having large parties is high risk and one to be avoided this year. The CDC has come out with lists of low, medium and high risk activities for 2020. If you want to stay safe, here are 7 Low-Risk activities that you can do this Halloween, they are fun too!
The weather took a drastic drop here in Utah which means its soup weather! This is my favorite time of the year, I love the cooler weather and especially soups. My family might not agree completely with me but I’ve won them over with our Go To Creamy Chicken Enchilada Soup! The best part about this soup is it made up of things I usually have on hand and in my pantry and it’s a simple, easy dump soup that doesn’t take much effort or prep at all! I know you’re going to love it just as much as we do.
I absolutely LOVE the Fall season. Pumpkins, pumpkin spice, pumpkin cake, what’s not to love? One of our favorite recipes for the Fall is pumpkin sheet cake. It’s super easy to make and it feeds a lot of people. My kids even request this over and over again. It’s definitely a crowd pleaser. YUM!
I’ve talked to many teachers this year and they are having a hard time being both an in-class as well as an online teacher. It’s hard. It takes more time away from their families. It’s emotionally and physically exhausting. If we could help just a little bit to take away some heartache, then they would be a better teachers for our kids.
