Disney Themed Teacher’s Appreciation Week

This week was Teacher’s Appreciation Week, and I wanted to do something really special for RaShad’s teacher. She is AMAZING, and our family really appreciates her. I started brainstorming ideas over a month ago and changed my mind just 2 weeks before. I mean, it only makes sense to do a Disney theme since we are planning a Disney vacation in a few months and have Disney on the brain. She knows we’re in Disney mode as RaShad is constantly talking about our trip, and we have a Disney movie night every single Friday night. I took some of my favorite quotes from Disney movies and tied them together with a gift.

Monday: Alice in Wonderland
Quote: “Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast” 

Gift: Breakfast – banana, muffin, yogurt

Easter 2016

The kids had egg hunts at school and church so we just did a small one inside of the house. I used recycled eggs 🙂 and just filled them with fillings left over from the eggs I sent to the school. It was all the same to the kids 🙂 I hate to give them candy so they mainly had gummy bears, goldfish, stickers, erasers and other small toys. I hid them in plain site in the house (about 40 eggs). They had a blast finding the eggs, but even more fun opening them! After the hunt, we had brunch.

Later in the day, they made and decorated Easter cookies then got to open their gifts (How amazingly awesome is it that these bags were $20 total!) We ended the evening with a family movie – HOP.

Boo to You!

I typically don’t make cute bentos for lunch on the weekend, but I couldn’t resist!

Ham & cheese ghost sandwiches, 1/2 Zone Perfect Chocolate Caramel Cluster Nutrition Bar, carrots+ranch dressing, Horizon organic milk

I got four Halloween themed cookie cutters from Michael’s for $2.25. Woot woot. For some reason their Halloween stuff is 25% off plus I had a 40% off coupon :)) 

We also got a ton of Halloween decorations because RaShad requested we make the house “spooky.”

We also got an easy Halloween craft from the dollar spot at Target. These cute little wood pumpkins came with paint & a small brush. Such a steal at $1 each! Can you guess which painting belongs to who??


Tomorrow’s lunch: ham & cheese pumpkin sandwich (I tried sooo hard to tint the bread orange, but it still looks a little red :/), cheddar crackers, yellow and orange marshmallows + m&ms for color, tangerine, Cliff Organic Kid’s Bar. They will have Mots for Tots apple juice to drink.
