Wrigley's Extra Gum DIY and Printable

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and it's advertiser. #GiveExtraGum #sponsored

Do you love gum? I have since I was a kid. My Dad use to bring me home a pack of sugary grape gum everyday when I was little. Grape was my favorite. When I was 5 I had to have silver caps put on my teeth because of cavities. Probably from the grape gum every day. As I got older I changed my tune from Grape to sugar free peppermint and spearmint. Thank heavens for Wrigley's Extra Sugar free gum! Yummy, long lasting flavor that won't kill your teeth. I love this stuff. I keep one in every bag and cup holder.

So when your at your Local Walmart and grab a few packs at the check out and use some for holiday gifts, stocking stuffers or Mistletoe Kisses! Today I want to share a few ways you can create and share with Extra gum this holiday season!

For Christmas give someone special a few "Extra" Kisses

Neighborhood Bunny Hop + Printable

Today's original post was an epic fail.  Ever have those??  Well today's was a big one.  So instead I am re sharing my Neighborhood Bunny Hop.  I love holiday ideas that can involve the whole family. With spring just around the corner, it's time to get out and see your neighbors again   Here in Idaho its been a long hard winter.  I think we have gone a little crazy cooped up in the house. If your kids are like mine they will love to make and deliver a secret treat to a neighbor. Not to mention this is a fun family activity. I love seeing how many homes participate in this fun neighborhood pass around. This one is super easy, just make a copy of the printable below. Pair with a treat and deliver.

Secret Easter Bunny + Free Printable

Recently a few of my friends and I started talking about Family Easter Traditions.  Most of my family's are just the normal ones, Easter Baskets, Egg hunt, Nice Dinner.  I have been wanting to start some new ones.  I want my kids to associate certain holidays with their beliefs.   So I came up with the Secret Easter Bunny. Similar to a Secret Santa but an egg hunt of sorts. My kids can pick out some treats and dollar store toys and find joy in serving and helping others. Christmas only comes once a year, but many families need help year round. Or do it to surprise a family you know and love.

Once there was a Snowman......Kit!

Well I am back again for another day of Corn Week.  Today we are going to talk Snow.  That's right snow. You might think I'm crazy but you are going to love this easy project.  Even the kids can get involved.

Everyone loves a snowman right??? When I was in college I had a snowman. His name was Winston. We had fun dressing him up and having him as our mascot.  As an adult I enjoy going out on a snowy day and building snowmen with my kids.  So a few years ago I came up with a fun little snowman kit. Complete with a corn cob pipe and a button nose.  I used them as my neighbor gift to my neighbors with kids. The key to my kit is to start planning now. So here is your supply list.

5x54 inch fleece or old scarf
Dowel knobs and Dowel (Size or dowel knob opening) for eyes
Large Button - You could also buy a carrot for the nose.
Rocks painted black for mouth. You could also use these for your eyes.
Hat- I like to use the 99 cent beanie hats at walmart
Corn on the cob (This is why we start now)

Corn Cob Pipe
Start with you corn on the cob.  Make sure to enjoy every bite. Thr butter, the salt every last yummy taste of summer. Once you have enjoyed your yummy delicious corn, cut your cobs into halves or thirds.

1.Trim off any access corn and leave your cobs out to dry.  It may take a few days.  You can also put them on low heat in your oven for several hours.You want them dry enough to drill holes in them. You can even dry them out and put them in a ziploc bag until you area ready to make them for Christmas.
2. When they are dry you will drill a hole in them, the same size as your dowels.
3. With a hot glue gun add a bit of glue in the drilled hole.
4.  Add your dowel and let dry.
5. Opt. You can spray your dowels with sealer.  This will help them last longer in a wet winter.

Eyes and Mouth
For the eyes and mouth have your kids gather some rocks from your yard. Wash them and  paint them black. Or buy some dowel knobs and dowels. Paint them black.  Either way your kids will love to collect rocks give them a bath and paint a shiny coat of paint on them. You can also pic up a bag of rocks from the dollar store.  They oftern have decorative rocks in black.  They are perfect for a snowman.

For your button nose you can buy a button or a carrot.  I am using a button that I am going to glue a dowel on the back so it stays in place on my snowman.

You can either use an old scarf or a long pieces fleece. 
Whatever you fancy.  I used fleece and cut the edges.  I had my kids sit and tie the ends into knots.  

I like to use the cheap beanies from Walmart.  But you could also make one out of foam or felt. For instructions on how to construct a hat See this post.

Add all your pieces to a fun little draw string bag or bucket.  Add the tag and you are ready to make a snowman. I added a vinyl face to my bucket or you could use iron on vinyl for a bag. No cutter needed just hand cut and apply. I love getting my vinyl here.   You can get all kinds and colors.  A lot or a little you choose.

A fun little addition would be to add hot cocoa or cider to your bucket or bag.

Right click each one and save to your computer.

It's a Wrap! Neighbor Gift

A few years ago, on Christmas Eve, a neighbor brought by a roll of wrapping paper, a roll of tape and a small plate of treats with a little typed tag attached. so I made up this cute little tag here to share, with a little improvement.

{Right click and save. Prints as a 4x6}

 I have been searching for this little tag for years and finally found it.
I loved the idea. And who doesn't need a little extra wrap and tape on Christmas eve.

You've Been Punk'd! Halloween neighbor treat

I love when neighborhoods are friendly and festive and take care of one another.  I live in one of those neighborhoods.  I especially love living in a great neighborhood around the holidays.  This is one of my favorite things to do.

When I was a kid it was always the Ghost that floated around the neighborhood to say Boo.
This year I wanted to start something with the same concept with a little twist.

You've Been Punk'd.

I got one of the $1 pumpkins from my local store and filled it with treats and a few tricks.
Printed my tags and attached to the pumpkin.
I glued the pumpkin and the poem on a piece of card stock. Oneon each side.  I think I may laminate it for durabilty. 
The tags shown here are 4x6. If you would like to use them right click on the image and save to your computer.  

Print the We've been Punk'd onto 8.5 x 11 photocopies. I did mine double sided to save paper. I am going to print 10 or so of these and include them in the pumpkin. 

You are ready to knock and run.  Play a nice trick or two and have fun!

Here are a few more fun pass around to start the BOO in your neighborhood.
