Halloween Decoration Idea- Mummy Door


When it comes to decorating, I love big and bold things.  I wanted to make something fun for my front door, so I thought that I would mummify it :).  It was easy to do and cute and fun!

I took 4 yards of white fabric (you could use paper too) and the big googly eyes I got from Target.

I stuck the eyes on the door.

Then started wrapping it with the fabric.  I cut them into 8 inch strips.  I also used clear tape to stick it on (use a lot of tape).

And that's it.

DIY Seahawks Shirt #NFLVinyl


Disclosure: I was given product to use to create these shirts, all opinions, ideas and content are 100% my own.

Our whole life we have lived in the west.  We grew up in WY, moved to Kansas, Utah and Nebraska.  Do you know what all of those have in common?  The closest NFL team was Denver, so naturally we became Broncos fans.  My husband has always liked the Broncos!  Well we are now Broncos fans in Seahawks country.  Now that we live in Washington all we see is things for the hawks.  Even though we are still Broncos fans, I thought that it would be fun for my kids to have some Seahawks shirts.  The idea of buying them just sounded expensive.  I can't afford to buy 4 or 5 shirts that cost $15 a piece.  So instead I bought some shirts at the dollar store and then used heat transfer to make the design on them.

 Here are the shirts that I bought at the dollar store.  Can't beat a shirt for $1!

I then cut out the #12 and #GoHawks out of the heat transfer vinyl.  Make sure when you are cutting out the heat transfer, you make sure you mirror the image horizontally and you have the shiny sign down on the mat.

I ironed on the green heat transfer.

Then I ironed on the blue directly onto the green.  Doesn't the layered look look awesome?!

Here are the boys' shirts.  I love how they turned out!

Doc McStuffins Slumber Party Game Ideas #JuniorCelebrates #CollectiveBias


This shop has been compensated by #CollectiveBias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

My little girl is obsessed with Disney Junior right now, she just loves it!  She especially loves Doc McStuffins and likes to watch it all the time.  I like it because it's educational and it's teaching her life lessons that she will need when she has to go to the doctor's.  Since we love Doc McStuffins so much, I thought it would be fun to invite a couple of my daughter's friends over and have a little party with them.  We had so much fun playing games with them!  These games are all super easy and most of them are games that I came up with using stuff that I bought at the store.

I headed to Walmart to get all the Disney Junior supplies.  We got a super cute comforter for my little girl, some fun Hasbro games and some American Greeting decorations.

Here is all the things that I got for the party!

Using the decorations and some band-aids, we played the game, pin the band-aid onto the doctor.

I also made a fun scavenger hunt for the girls, to get ready for bed.  Each note had a little rhyme as a clue to what they should do next.  Here is what the clues said.
1- Get a Drink:
It has been fun but playtime is up
Time to get some liquid and fill up a cup.
2- Go Potty:
Bed time has come and before you go to your room
You need to go and use the bathroom.
3- Brush Teeth:
You are done eating all your food and beans
Now it's time to make your teeth squeaky clean.
4- Put on PJ's:
Before you go and do something strange
Go to your dresser and get changed.
5- Read a book:
It's almost time to go to bed 
Go get something that can be read.

I also made the girls a big book of boo boos so write and draw in.

The kids had so much fun playing all the fun games.  They thoroughly enjoyed the board games that I got.  I thought that this Operation game was just perfect!

Then we played Doc McStuffins memory game.  This actually kept them entertained for awhile (I love those kind of games).

Next we played pin the band-aid on the doctor.  It was a big hit too!  Plus it was so easy to make.

Their all time favorite game was parachute with the comforter.  They had a blast!!  They had so much fun doing it over and over again.

Once we were done playing the games, it was time to settle down a little bit.  So I let them draw in their big book of boo boos.
