It's A Crafty Day: Free Fun Printables

When we go for bike rides or walks, we like to take along some of these cards that we have printed out. Ariana loves to sneak them into mailboxes like she performing some stealthy 007 maneuvers. I like that it helps the girls to be more aware of their surroundings, to literally stop and smell the roses, and to remember that it is always fun to share kind thoughts with people.

Recently we have been struggling with the girls and not being grateful or empathetic. I found this great activity for us to do at dinner time to help illustrate to us all how much we have to be grateful for. We started last night and it went well... let's see after we have done it for a few days if we can still be creative with our ideas.

I found this website, Indiefixx, that has the cutest printable artwork... for FREE. It is exactly the type of art I would create if I had the talent. I have printed and framed some for Acadia's bedroom because I was so in love with it.

This year I have moved to only let Ariana have hot lunch twice per week. Her school lunch program is less than optimal for healthy eating choices. In trying to make her lunch time a little more fun, she likes little notes in her lunch box. These cute coupons are a fun alternative once in awhile.

I also like this lunch survey- although she was just "too busy, mom" to fill it all out.

I just like these elephants to use for wall art... or note cards or just for the girls to play with.

Hope you enjoy these free printables as much as I did.


  1. Oh my gosh. You rock!

    The lunch survey is a fabulous find. I am going to slip it into my middle-schooler's lunch box and see what comes home, if anything.

    The garden note cards... how sweet.

    The 5 best things... again... thanks for sharing. We use "conversation cards" at dinner. This will be fun.

  2. You're such a good mommy! I love all the ideas you have and all the things you do with your kiddos.
