Printable Thanksgiving Table Activities

Happy hearts and full bellies is what we’re shooting for this Thanksgiving season. And man-o-man we think we have nailed it this year. Well, at least the happy hearts part that is (I’m relying on Paul for my family’s full bellies.)  Anyway, since I’m not contributing to the cooking (or ever will), I wanted to contribute to the festivities. So, we’ve come up with a set of table games to keep everyone occupied, from bored children, to hangry teens, to the honored elderly we think there is a little something for everyone in this line up to keep all satisfied until that tryptophan kicks in!

DIY Friendsgiving Table Spread

Garlands and gratitude galore!  What better way to spend a season of gratitude than with friends.  This year, we wanted to deck out our studio with a Friendsgiving extravaganza!  We used our Friendsgiving invitations, found here, for some perfect garland inspiration.  No party is complete without an eye catching garland full of shapes and color à la Lars.  Because of the bounteous holiday celebrations this time of year, we also wanted everything to be damage free and temporary.  So we set out to find just the thing. Cue the new Command® Adjustables™ Hooks and Clips.

Statue of Liberty and her NYC Tourist Halloween mommy and Me Costume

Here at Lars we live for a little holiday (well, not so little to us) called Halloween! If you don’t already know, I basically spend every day, spring, summer, winter, and fall thinking of what I should dress up as. I’m not even ashamed; to me, Halloween is the most wonderful time of the year! With this deep love comes a deep responsibility to dress up not just myself, but Jasper as well. I’ve got to make good use of the golden years, and by golden years, I mean a time when Jasper doesn’t get a say in what he would like to go as. 

As I thought about the many things that a mother could force her son to dress up as, I realized I could finally realize one of my greatest dreams. In my humble opinion, there is no better outfit for a mother and a mother’s boy than Lady Liberty and her loyal tourist. After deciding on a theme, we partnered up with Cricut to bring you the magnificent Statue of Liberty with the tiniest (and possibly the cutest) tourist you’ve ever seen. The most important aspects of the costumes consist of paper and Everyday Iron-On vinyl. The other pieces you can find in your closet or sew up for a quick liberty dress! To make this even easier, we provided a template you need to cut the elements out! Seriously, so easy.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine.

Valentine Advent calendar

Valentine Advent Calendar 2019-8778

Ok, I get it. A Valentine Advent Calendar isn’t a real thing…until now! I love a good countdown because oftentimes the anticipation of a holiday is most exciting than the actual event, no?! This Valentine advent is an ode to the season of love and how you can SHOW and GIVE love to all the people around you. I don’t mean to give the prompts away here (don’t look too closely!) but it’s simple stuff. You know, the kind of stuff that really can make a difference. This advent would be great pinned to a bulletin board or wall and used actively to ring in the season of love!

Our new Valentine’s Shop

Valentine shopWe have a very exciting announcement to share with you guys just in time for Valentine’s Day, only my second favorite holiday. We have added new items to our shop!

We’ve been listening to you over the years and the cries (well, subtle DMs–you’re all very well behaved) and we have a lot of readers who don’t want to MAKE our projects–they want to buy them! We get it! These days you really have to pick and choose where you invest your time and we don’t want such a delightful experience, such as Valentine’s Day (or insert any holiday), to be burden. Such a tragedy that would be as they are supposed to be celebratory. Over the years we have created some amazing Valentine’s Day projects, ones that you just can’t find in stores, and now you can access them all in one place. We are making it easy for you to spread the love this year with our new E-Book and Valentine Kits.

This E-Book is a complete collection of ALL the printable Valentines ever made at Lars. It includes 15 projects to help you sweeten up the season of love. We take care of everything for you, all you have to do is print it out. You will find everything from Valentines with sweet treats to party-ready paper crowns perfect for a Galentine’s soiree. There might even be a never before seen project or two!

If you don’t want to go to the trouble of printing everything out yourself, we have something for you too! We now offer pre-printed Valentine Kits. We send you everything you need to make some of our very favorite Valentines. They just show up on your doorstep and you assemble, which really is a part of the fun!

Hop on over to the shop now to check it out for yourself!
