It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣

It’s not just day 1 of “distance learning,” but it’s also #nationalcrayonday so we thought it would be fun to make some art with @crayola crayons. ⁣

This is such an easy and fun project. Just hot glue glue crayons to a canvas and melt with a blow dryer. ⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

#ad This is a time of uncertainty throughout the world. As a self-employed family, we are having to make important decisions, to make sure that we are saving and spending our money wisely.⁣
⁣
After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣
⁣
There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number. They offer nationwide coverage and their 4G LTE runs on the nation’s fastest, most advanced networks. The company is online only so they cut out the middlemen and can pass the savings onto us! ⁣

It’s officially only been a few days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.⁣
⁣
There are so many things I should be doing but I need structure. Otherwise, I fall off course and my house looks like a tornado went through it. So when I saw my friend Amy had created a cleaning and organizing calendar, I asked her if I could share it with all of you and she was gracious enough to agree.⁣

Looking for a fun DIY idea to end the year? I’ve created a free printable time capsule page that is perfect for all ages! Just print, fill out, roll up and tie or place into a little jar or container and hang on the tree! What a special and inexpensive way to keep track of everyone’s year. And imagine how much fun it will be to open them up in 5 or 10 years! This free printable time capsule page makes a great New Years Eve project.

Every year, with the kids home from school for a couple of weeks, we try to come up with ideas to keep them busy. While most of these projects wind up in the garbage at some point (because who has the space?!), I wanted to find a way that one of these annual projects can be small enough to save. What’s better than a printable time capsule page that can be turned into an ornament for the tree?! Storage is a breeze because they fit in nicely with your own ornament storage!

This free printable time capsule page is a fun DIY, perfect for all ages, for the end of the year. Hang on the tree and open in 5-10 years!

Supplies You’ll Need for The Printable Time Capsule

Free Printable Time Capsule Page
Letter Sized Paper
Printer
Jars with Corks or Fillable Ornaments
String
Marker or Pen
Label Maker
Scissors
Glitter or Confetti (optional)

How to Put Together

  1. Print out our free printable time capsule page. It’s best to download to your computer and then print. It will fit any letter sized paper, but double check your printer settings to make sure it all fits on one page.
  2. Have the kids (or adults) fill them out.
  3. Fold paper and roll up (the size will depend on whether you are putting this inside of a container or if you are just going to tie a string around it and hang it that way).
  4. Tie a string around the rolled paper to keep it tight.
  5. Write the name and age of the person who filled it out. If you aren’t planning on putting it into a container, write the year as well. Tie an additional string with a loop and hang on the tree. You’re all done! If you’re using a container, continue onto step 5.
  6. Place rolled paper inside container (we used a little jar with a cork top that we found at the Target Dollar Spot but you can also use fillable ornaments). You may want to add some fun glitter or confetti! These particular little jars were already filled with glitter, so we used that!
  7. Seal the container (in this case, we just placed the cork back into the top.
  8. Tie a string around the container. This is how you will hang it back onto the tree.
  9. Using a label maker, create a label with the year and stick it to the front.
  10. Hang on your Christmas tree!

Now, it’s up to you to decide how long to wait before you open your time capsule. We are going to try to wait at least 5 years (maybe even 10). We can’t wait to sit around, as a family and read everything we loved, years before.

Do you have any New Years Eve traditions in your home? We’d love to hear about them! And if you decide to make these printable time capsules, make sure to tag us on social media so we can see how they turned out!

Looking for a fun craft idea for New Years Eve? This time capsule ornament can be made each year, as your child grows!

    This is such a cool little idea and would be fun to go back and look at later with the kids as they get older. They can see what they liked at a certain age, how their penmenship developed over time. I think they’d get a kick out of this activity. Thank you so much for sharing it!
