Saying Goodbye is Hard!

I really hate saying goodbye, especially to someone I won't see for a long time. In the last few months, I have lost two really great neighbors. I'm so sad!! Before they moved I wanted to give them a little something to let them know that they would be missed. I gave them "Bye"-Chews (Hi-Chews)... get it?!? This is the perfect little gift to say goodbye, because it is inexpensive and everyone loves Hi-Chews! I bought the large bag at Costco, but you could do the same thing with a small bag. (You may have seen this idea before, because I posted about it on Instagram a few weeks ago.)


I've also hopped on the bandwagon and joined tsū. T is free social networking site (it seems similar to Facebook) that gives the social revenues back to it's users. I'm pretty new to the site and I'm still trying to figure it all out, but it seems really awesome! You can check it out and sign up {here}.

 

HAHA! This made me giggle! He is too cute! :)

Silly {Little} Pumpkins

Please Note: This post may include Amazon affiliate links.

October is my favorite month! I absolutely love pumpkins, fall, and all things Halloween. So, when I saw this fanged pumpkin tutorial from Martha Stewart, I had to try it right away! I made them with my family and they all turned out so cute. (Side Note: At the end of the night, we were all covered in eyeballs and we were talking to each other while wearing vampire fangs. HOLY DROOL! Have you ever tried to talk with vampire fangs in your mouth?)


I found everything I needed at the grocery store. If you want to order through Amazon, you can find the fangs {here} and the googly eyes {here}. I used sticky googly eyes that stuck right on. Some of the kids had a hard time making them stay, though! You may want to use hot glue and have a parent volunteer help you out.


If you want your whole class to make these fanged pumpkins, then cutting out the mouth ahead of time is a MUST! Ask a parent volunteer to come in the day before to help you out. 



Mmmmmm.... Pumpkin Guts.... ;)


 The finished product is so darn cute and so fun. I have an assortment of these fanged pumpkins decorating my hutch and they are the best Halloween decorations I have out!


Be prepared for your students to get out of control with the googly eyes. I let my nieces and nephews put on as many as they wanted, but you may want to set a limit! 

The little guy who decorated this pumpkin sure is proud of it. :)
