Beginning of the Year Reading Games

Can you believe it's already time to go back to school?  My kiddos started back August 10th!

Thanksgiving Party Game

Apparently I'm guilty.  Guilty of procrastinating with this room mom stuff again!  Although in my defense, I sincerely thought I was ahead of the game.  I went last Friday, a whole week before the Thanksgiving party, and a whole 2 1/2 weeks before Thanksgiving, to Hobby Lobby.  The Thanksgiving section was already reduced down to [...]

Free Halloween Party Game – Pumpkin Bowling

I'm in charge of getting the game together for our twin boys' Fall Festival at school on Wednesday.  (AND a craft AND a snack.  Guess who's room mom this year?)  I got a great idea from "A Girl And A Glue Gun"- Pumpkin Bowling!  Her pictures are soooo adorable!  She hand drew those!  One talented [...]
