Well, there is a reason for that....this year our district has had a lot of training days for our teachers beginning with the first week of school in August! Yes, we start school in August in HOT HOT Southern California, we must be a rich state spending money on air conditioning!? Since the heat has been in the upper 90's we have had a lot of "rainy" day recesses, no Bueno. Anyhoo I'm a sub and I've been working a lot, everyday since the first week of school. I'm not complaining or anything but usually my blog, my home and my craft projects all get put on the back burner when I work this much because usually I'm off a couple of days during the week and I able to get in a craft in or putter around the Cottage on Cullen. Not only that my girls are in the middle of High School Volleyball and the Fall Club soccer season. We also have had tournaments on weekends for Volleyball and soccer games. In addition, Madison has taken on a under 8 year old soccer team at the YMCA for her Senior Project. So If my girls are busy then guess what...I'm busy. But I did manage to find this cute fall FREE printable at Balancing Home ,that is perfect if you teach little ones or have littles ones, they can give out to their classmates at school. When my girls were itty bittys we homemade all our treats together. They loved it and so did I! Now that they are older it doesn't happen anymore but I made them for my class this week. They were so excited to get them. We have been singing the song in class so it was a no brainer.
Too cute?! Right!! I've been teaching a lot about Pumpkins the past couple of weeks. Pumpkins are coming out of my ears. Speaking of pumpkins, Trader Joe's has some Belgian Pumpkin Chocolates in white, dark and milk chocolate. They are sweet and they melt in your mouth. Chocolate is a girls' best friend.
Here is another cute Halloween treat idea, it's a lollipop treat wrapped up in a tissue paper looking like a witches broom...you know I love all things Witchy, especially I love to cackle...I have that down pat, I sound just like the Wicked Witch of the West. If you like this treat idea... you can go HERE to find the link. I love how simple it is to make but adorable at the same time.
One more treat with this flying witch on the stem of some caramel apples....at No Biggie , I have a ton of great inspirational ideas on my Pinterest Boards one on all things Halloween called All Hallows Eve and my El Dia de Los Muertos and another board on a variety of teaching ideas labeled For the Love of Teaching, I have so many ideas and I could never ever try them all, not even half of them, not even a quarter of them but they are all there when I should ever need inspiration. Hope you are able to get your craft on and I hope you all have a great Wednesday!!
