This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for Paramount Pictures.

When a magical meteor crash lands in Adventure City, it gives the PAW Patrol pups superpowers, transforming them into The MIGHTY PUPS! For Skye, the smallest member of the team, her new powers are a dream come true. But things take a turn for the worse when the pups' archrival Humdinger breaks out of jail and teams up with Victoria Vance, a meteor-obsessed mad scientist, to steal the superpowers and turn themselves into supervillains. With the fate of Adventure City hanging in the balance, the Mighty Pups have to stop the supervillains before it's too late, and Skye will need to learn that even the smallest pup can make the biggest difference.

Grandparent's Day Craft Free Printable

 I am happy as can BEE because the best Grandparents belong to me! I was searching for an easy printable craft to make with my 2k preschoolers for Grandparents Day. I found some on Esty, but they either had spelling errors or they weren't at the price point that I thought was fair to other teachers, especially private school preschool teachers. Since I am pretty handy at making printables, I thought I would give it a shot. A free bee image later and here is what I came up with. ENJOY!

Grandparent's Day Craft Free Printable

Different Types of Printables to Boost Your Kid's Learning

There are many different types of printable activities to keep kids interested in learning. Find out what works best for your child!

The most effective way to get kids interested in learning is to provide them with fun activities that encourage them to learn. These printables are great for young children because they make learning fun and easy.

Besides encouraging children's vocabulary development, they also provide an opportunity to teach them letter recognition and much more. Here are nine printable activities that will boost your kid’s interest in reading.

Free Printable Classroom Valentine for Fidget Toys

Valentine's Day is right around the corner. Looking for a non-candy kids valentine idea? I have been trying to be a little creative each year with my kid's school valentines. This is a craft idea that you or your child can do because it is an easy printable! Fidgets and Pop-Its are all the rage in our house so I thought, why not create something that my children's whole class would enjoy! Plus, I have made it into an easy, cute printable that you can enjoy with your loved ones too. You could also use this printable for blow pops or pop rocks as well.

Thanks for Making My Valentine's Day POPPIN' {Free Printable Classroom Handout for Fidget Toys}

I remember handing out valentines in school. You spent the day making a box to keep them in. There are so many creative boxes now. When I was in school it was just a shoebox and I think the most creative that I ever saw was someone made a mailbox. That's what I love about Pinterest because you can find so much inspiration. I have found so many easy Valentine Box ideas. Pop Its allow for people to give their bodies something to keep themselves occupied, which permits them to focus on learning in class, reading or whatever the activity may be. Due to fidgeting behavior becoming common among adolescents, more products are being designed to support this habit

"You've Been Booed" - Halloween Sharing Treats

Halloween time is here! I love celebrating every holiday to it's fullest and if I can take this time of year to show my neighbors or people close to me how much they mean to me, then that is what I am going to do. When we first moved into our neighborhood, someone sent us a neighborhood Christmas gram and we never figured out who did it, but it was such a fun idea! I wish I had taken a picture of it. So I have decided this All Hallows Eve (Spooky Season) season that I would share a fun printable to get into the spirit and share spooky treats with my neighbors. With Boo Baskets becoming a trend again, this a fun kid-friendly option that they will surely love!

This year, all my goodies came from Oriental Trading because they have everything you need for a one stop Halloween shop at a great price. They have exclusive candy items like Unicorn Poop marshmallows, costumes for the entire family, decorations that range from spooky to seasonal, graphic tees for all, and so much more. I love working with them and it's has been one of my go to shopping places since my mom told me about them years ago. She loved shopping there for supplies for her classroom when she was a teacher.

"I Like You a Bunchie, so Here's a Scrunchie" - Trendy DIY Valentine Idea Free Printable

This Scrunchie Valentine Free Printable was created for every VSCO girl. And while I love creating these easy FREE printables for you to enjoy, I do include affiliate links where I make a small commission each time you make a purchase, but you still pay the same low price.

Scrunchie Trendy Valentine Idea

With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I was trying to think about what my daughter and I have created together for her to hand out to her class mates. From everything to a homemade Unicorn Valentine Box to easy, no fuss printables. This year I wanted to create something trendy that I knew she would enjoy handing out. Plus I am always trying to think of new non-candy Valentine ideas that kids or even teenagers will actually enjoy.

When I was trying to think about what to make with my daughter for our annual Valentine school handouts, I tried to think about the things she likes. As she thinks being a VSCO girl is the new hip thing (she is only in third grade after all), she loves her Hydroflask, saving the sea turtles one metal straw at a time, and of course scunchies. So I thought, why not create a cute printable for my readers that would make the perfect, non-candy school hand out.

First of all, what is a VSCO girl?

This is a craft idea that you or your child can do because it is an easy printable! Squishies are all the rage in our house so I thought, why not create something that my children's whole class would enjoy! Plus I have made it into an easy, cute printable that you can enjoy with your loved ones too.

Thank You Essential Delivery Drivers Free Printable

I have been wanting to give something back to my delivery drivers (Amazon, USPS, FEDEX, UPS, etc.) because I receive so many packages and I know so many of us are getting extra deliveries due to current pandemic.

Thank You Essential Delivery Drivers Free Printable Care Package Idea

With the holidays upon us, they are working more than ever and I thought it would be nice to show my appreciation by creating this little goodies care basket so they could pick something they might like. PLUS along with it, I made a FREE printable sign that you could use as well if you would like to show your appreciation too. You could also include Door Dash or InstaCart in your essential delivery as well.

"Not All Heroes Wear Capes" Teacher Edition - Free Coloring Sheet

If virtual learning has taught me anything, it is that I am NOT cut out to be a teacher. And everything our public teachers are having to deal with is so much on their plates. At my children's school they are having to figure out how to do a hybrid learning situation for those in class and online at the same time, all while trying to keep everyone engaged, paying attention, and on task. That has to be so stressful. So along with my nurse/doctor printable coloring page that I made back in March, I have decided to create this "Not All Heroes Wear Capes" Free Coloring Page about teachers.

Teacher Free Coloring Page

Just click on the image above to print. Please tag me @mrsdchastain on IG/Twitter or @DianasDeals on FB if your children color this as I would love to see them.

Bring Home Abominable TODAY + Giveaway

I received a complimentary copy of ABOMINABLE from Dreamworks Animation to provide this post. But, as always, all opinions are my own.

If you have been following me on Instagram, then you know my daughter had a slumber party for her 9th birthday. She had so much fun! We played games and made ornament crafts, but the hit of the night was getting to watch ABOMINABLE.

ABOMINABLE is “an epic, colorful journey home. Beautiful and exhilarating to behold” (Glenn Kenny, The New York Times). From the studio that brought you How to Train Your Dragon, this heartwarming and humorous story follows teenage Yi (Bennet) as she encounters a young Yeti on the roof of her apartment building in China, she and her mischievous friends, Jin (Trainor) and Peng (Tsai), name him “Everest” and embark on an epic quest to reunite the magical creature with his family at the highest point on Earth. But the trio of friends will have to stay one-step ahead of Burnish (Izzard), a wealthy man intent on capturing a Yeti, and zoologist Dr. Zara (Paulson) to help Everest get home.

Easy Teacher Gift Idea {Dunkin Donuts Gift Card Free Printable}

I know I have already shared some Teacher Appreciation gifts with all of you, but I have one more that I created and I wanted to share with all of you. Dunkin Donuts is a popular place where we live because it is the closest coffee shop around. I love giving all types of gift cards to my kid's teachers because I feel like they will get the most use out of them and if not, they are easier to trade in. But I love these pun-filled free gift card printables.

Easy Teacher Gift Idea {Dunkin Donuts Gift Card Free Printable}

If you didn't give a gift around Christmas and completely forgot Teacher Appreciation Week, then end of the year parties (right before summer break) are a perfect time to show those people that have influenced your child's life just how much they mean. One of my favorite radio stations did a poll about what Teachers actually want and don't want. Here are the results:

Thanks for Making Me Brighter - Teacher Appreciation Gift & Free Printable

Teacher Appreciation Week 2019 in the United States of America will begin on Monday, May 6 and end on Friday, May 10. At my daughter's school they do something different each day with a theme. I have linked some below that I have used as well. I love making printable and they have seriously made my life so much easier in the past for cute gift ideas. I made a Chick-fil-a Gift card printable last year that I shared at Christmas.

Teacher Gift Idea Free Printable

If you saw our Unicorn Easter Basket, then you know I was sent some Hallu bath bombs and I thought what a perfect opportunity to create something new to show appreciation to the many teachers in my children's lives. I created this printable so you can easily give a cute little Teacher Appreciation gift that they are sure to love. Simply click the image below to print. You can make it smaller with your printer settings and then print more to a page like I did (since we have three teachers not including PE and music teachers) or you can make a card. This could even be a cute gift for a dance or gymnastics (etc.) instructor as well.
