You're A-Maze-Ing Valentine by Stickelberry

Valentine, You’re A-MAZE-Ing!

How about an easy, no-candy, no-fuss Valentine for your child’s class? I have you covered my friends!A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

With very little effort, you can aMAZE your child and all of his buddies and give them something they all love — a puzzle and a pencil. I mean, the little things really get them excited at this time in their lives…. although, I tend to get excited about pencils, too. :o)

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

I have to say, creating a maze wasn’t as easy as I expected it to be – it took way longer than I thought it would! But it was super fun making it. (<—- Geek.)

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

I’ve made it easy this time — instead of fighting with your printer and paying for new ink cartridges (really, my printer is my nemesis), you can order these babies and have them sent to you!

A-MAZE-Ing Valentine

Then all you’ll need is a hole punch and a few minutes of time — you can even enlist your little guy or gal to help punch holes or insert the pencils. So easy!

They are double sided — the side with the maze has a matte finish, while the “Happy Valentine’s Day” side is glossy like a postcard – in fact that is exactly what they are, and they are nice and sturdy.

Candy Free Easter Eggs

Candy Free Easter Eggs – Last Minute!

(Woo Hoo for NEW Content!) 

candy free easter eggs

  Soooo… did you forget about your child’s Easter Egg hunt at school? Because I sure did. Woops.

But Fear not, my Stickelberry friends, I am here to save the day with a quick and easy last minute solution.There’s still time with Prime! In about 5 minutes I found everything, ordered it and had it shipped to my front door in less than 2 days. Boom.

My dear, dear friend, Amazon Prime helped me with the FREE two day shipping part. In our house, the nominal fee is SO WORTH IT. If you shop online regularly like we do (because, you know, kids…) you know the value of free shipping, and how pleasant and convenient it is to receive things quickly. Not to mention, we often find the best deal and value on Amazon as well… so if you haven’t tried Prime, do it! Free 30 Day trial right here, baby! Order your heart out – I get my baby formula, many of my beauty products, gifts for the kids that are hard to find, even clothes and shoes from Amazon. It’s rad. And they offer all kinds of streaming — music, movies, tv shows, etc.

Candy Free Easter EggsAnyway enough about them – let’s get to the eggs, already.

I wanted to be the super cool mom and send Logan to school with some really awesome eggs, like these cool silly putty eggs, or these play dough eggs… but I need 24 eggs, and both would have been a little over my budget this time around. Maybe next year?

What I do know is this: kids love stamps. They LOVE stamps. Everyday when I pick up Logan at school there is a lineup at the front desk where the ever-so-lovely Ms Cherine lets the kids do stamps and stickers before they leave. I think it’s Logan’s favorite part of the day!

Last year we did bubbles and stickers, so this year we are totally doing stamps and stickers!

Here it is people:

The Stickers

Stickers for the Eggs

I know the stickers aren’t necessary, and that any child would be stoked to get just the stamp, but how cute are these little guys? And so handy to come on a roll, all easy to cut up and stuff?

So, I hope I helped you out or at least gave you an idea of where you can find some GREAT Easter Egg fillers!

*Yep, I’m an Amazon Affiliate, and proud of it! I order from Amazon weekly and it has been a lifesaver for this tired and exhausted Mama!

Toddler Easter Candy Free

Candy Free Easter Basket, Eggs & A Gift Idea for Teacher!

Toddler Easter Candy Free

Candy Free Thomas the Train Easter Basket

Toddler Easter

This guy LOVES Thomas. It’s all Thomas the Train, all the time. Sadly, I know all of the character names, all of the songs, and every movie in existence right along with him. Such is the life of a toddler mom! So, when it came time to put his Easter basket together, I HAD to put some Thomas goodies in there. The Easter Bunny couldn’t mess that up, right? So using my super-sleuth shopping skills I found a plethora of Thomas goodies at Target to fill his Easter Basket with.

 

 

We live by the beach and spend many days there throughout the year so the trunks, rash guard and sunglasses were a must.  Thomas the Train Easter Basket

I realize the Cars socks from the One Spot don’t exactly fit with the theme, BUT the kid has another, yet slightly less, obsession with McQueen. Thomas the Train Easter BasketSome movies, a book and some containers filled with stickers to finish it up. I just shoved it all in a big yellow bucket with some tissue paper. Easy Peasy. Thomas the Train Easter Basket

Yeah, he totally rocked the Thomas gear. I wonder what he will be into next year?All Thomas All the Time

Candy Free Eggs

Logan’s school has a no-candy policy for their Easter Eggs so I decided on bubbles and stickers. What toddler doesn’t love bubbles and stickers?! I found this cool set of eggs with a handy-dandy giant carrying egg at Target, along with the bubbles and the pad of stickers. Candy Free Easter Eggs

I cut up all the stickers – – make sure you’re comfy, this takes a while.Candy Free Easter Eggs

Stuff those eggs!Candy Free Easter Eggs

And we’re ready to go!Candy Free Easter Eggs

What are some other fun little candy-free things to pack into these eggs? Some of the things Logan got from his friends: Temporary tattoos, shaped crayons, and those parachute men!

Personalized Easter Gift for Teachers

Target always has the greatest things in the One Spot (the dollar bins!). I found these adorable tin baskets and post-it notes and thought they would make really cute gifts for the teachers at Logan’s school. Personalized Easter Gift for TeacherOf course, I added some chocolate and a Starbucks gift card… had to make it worth their while! I wrote their names using a Sharpie paint pen, and added a cute little tag to make it complete. Personalized Easter Gift for Teacher
