thanksgiving hat treat boxes {diy}

November 8, 2013

Are you having little ones at your Thanksgiving table this year?  Wouldn’t these little hat treat boxes be so cute for them?  Take a peek at how to make these fun Pilgrim Hat or Indian Headdress boxes that can be filled with any little surprise your heart desires!  Most likely you have most of the items in your craft stash.


For each hat:  Cut a piece of cardboard tube to about 3 inches.  Cut 4 ‘notches’ in the tube.  Then cut two of the sides at an angle.


Tape it up so you get your hat shape.


Gather some strips of black and white tissue paper.


And get some spray adhesive.


Spray the outside of the tube and first cover the top with a piece of tissue paper.  This is going to be where the candy comes out of.  Then wrap around the outside of the tube, using more tissue paper or spray adhesive as needed.  Tuck in the bottom.


Embellish your pilgrim hats and Indian headdress.


Fill each hat with your treats.  Get a 3 inch circle (for the pilgrim hat) or a 2 inch circle (for the Indian headdress).  Hot glue to the bottom to seal it up.


Once finished they are like little piñatas.  The kids can pop the top and see what surprises are inside!   



 Wouldn’t these make great place settings as well?

Seuss Celebration: Seuss-O

February 25, 2013

Big Birthday coming up this weekend…Dr. Seuss!  I am a huge Dr. Seuss fan and have used his books over and over again, as a parent and as a speech-langauge pathologist.  I think Theodor Seuss Geisel was a genius.  I am one of a million, I am sure.

In celebration of the good Doctor’s birthday, my friend and some of her neighbors threw an afternoon party with a Dr. Seuss theme for their wee little ones.  I had the privilege of designing some of the printables, creating the decor, and helping to style this spur-of-the-moment party…which I will share this week.

One of my personal favorites included for the party were these fun, Bingo-style, party favor games…



complete with candy bingo markers.


You can find the printable for both the Seuss-O game and the calling cards below.  While you are at it, go ahead and print two of the calling card files and you have yourself a little memory game!
