It is getting the time of year where we start thinking of end of the school year gifts for teachers.  If you have more than one child in school, that can get spendy rather quickly!  Why not take some of the stress off and make them something one of a kind and personal?  Don’t have a teacher to buy a gift for? How about a friend or bus driver, garbage man, a friend, or even yourself!

You will need

A mason jar style tumbler with straw and lid

Outdoor vinyl

I know I mention my favorite craft tool of all time a lot, but as you can tell, I use her (yes mine is a she) all the time!  If you are into crafting I strongly recommend getting a Silhouette of your own, you will not regret it!  If you don’t have one, find someone close by that can cut the vinyl for you.  You would be surprised how many people are willing to do it for cheap!

I found a package of 4 of these glass jar tumblers at Ross one day.  They even came with the super cute lids and matching straws.  And they were at least half the price of the plastic ones that don’t last very long at Walmart! Score for me!

I couldn’t find the exact ones but found some close ones here.  Or you could get these adorable lids and some plain jars and turn them into cups!

Make sure you use outdoor vinyl because it will last where regular vinyl will not.  Also it is important to hand wash to keep the vinyl from wearing off quicker.

Throw in a bottle of their favorite soda, or even a 12 pack and you will be their favorite!

New Years Eve Activities For Kids~ “Goody Bags”

New Years Eve with kids is an experience.  Sometimes that is good, sometimes…not so much.  No matter how tired they are, or how bored they become,  some kids are determined to stay up until midnight when they have the choice.  So why not make it more pleasant for everyone that has to  gets to spend New Years with an over tired child? Don’t get me wrong, it can be fun too! My kids enjoy it for the most part, but they get a little bored at times and having something to look forward to each hour really helps the night go faster for all of us!  This thrifty idea gives them a reason to celebrate each hour, and if you have the right items in your bag, can keep them entertained the rest of the time!

You will need:

Brown lunch bags

A marker (to write on your bags)

Items for the inside of each bag

You could do this for as many hours as you like.  My kids go to bed around 8 on a school night, so I thought that would be a good time to start the surprises.  They aren’t anything big; maybe a treat for the first or second one followed by some small activities.  If you are planning this for multiple children, dollar store party supplies work great.  Here are some ideas I came up with:

coloring books and/or crayons

candy

magazine or book

puzzle

yo yo

play-doh

card game (go fish, crazy eights, uno)

play makeup/ hair supplies

etch a sketch or magnadoodle

craft supplies

paints

Silly string

nail polish and nail stickers

Lego set

recipe for a favorite treat you could then make together in the kitchen

have them fill out a printable about who they are and what they want to be in the next year (great for older kids)

DVD or video game (Redbox rental would be great)

homemade photo booth props and then have your own mini photo shoot

The possibilities are endless depending on how much you want to spend and what your kids like to do! You don’t have to spend a lot of money,  can even be things from around your home that you already have.  I promise that this will help everyone from getting bored and keep your sanity so you can enjoy making memories as you introduce your little ones to the joy of New Years Eve.  Now, if we could just find something to put in the bag to guarantee they will sleep in the next day!

Snowman toilet paper Christmas card, #thrifty, #neighborgift, #gaggift, #funnygift, #christmascard, #snowman, #snowmancraft, #toiletpaper, #Christmas

Snowman Toilet paper Christmas “Card”~ Thrifty Neighbor Gift

Looking for something thrifty, different, and fun to give your neighbors this year?  Or something to leave the mailman, paper boy and garbage man?  With how thrifty this craft is, you could make one for everyone that has ever done anything for you for next to nothing! Not to mention giving them a little chuckle at the same time!  Sounds pretty good, right?

Introducing the first ever “toilet paper Christmas card”.  You read that right.  Attached is a little note that says;

” Money is tight

And times are hard,

So we are giving you this

Instead of a card.

Hang over or under

Whichever is pleasin’

And remember we wish you

A great Holiday Season!”

Silly right?  You don’t normally encourage people to wipe with your Christmas card, but why not ;)?

You will need:

snowman toilet paper Christmas card, #neighborgift, #neighbor, #thriftygift, #thriftycraft, #thrifty, #snowman, #gaggift, #funnygift, #toiletpaper

Roll of toilet paper

Gallon size Ziploc bag

 ribbon (Curling ribbon or fabric ribbon either is fine)

glue stick

orange paper

googly eyes

black paper

hole punch

Poem attached to some cute Christmas paper

I created a printable of the poem. If you would like to size it to a 4 x 6 size, or whatever size you want you can open it in a free program like Picasa.  That will then give you the choice as to which size to print it.  I have used Picasa for years, and it is very easy to learn and use.

Begin by sticking your toilet paper inside the Ziploc bag.  I then trimmed the zip top off of mine.  I like the look of having it tied with a ribbon.

Glue on your googly eyes.  Cut out an orange “carrot” whatever size you want.  Cut 4 round stones for the mouth.  Attach all of those with glue.  Print off your poem and glue it to some cute Christmas paper.  Punch a hole so you can stick the ribbon through it.  Tie that to the top so that it is sealed tightly.

There you have it!  Almost as easy as filling out a card, right?  I guarantee this one won’t be thrown away or forgotten anytime soon!
