I can’t believe school starts in a matter of days for some and a few weeks for others. I love when my kids are in school, I’m not gonna lie. Teachers are my saving grace and I love everything they do and teach my children. I often wonder if they’re doing a better job than I am.
I made this printable using my iPad Pro and iPencil along with the Pro Create app. Super easy and the smoothness you get from the iPencil is amazing. It was definitely a high purchase item for me but I’ve found many uses for it so far.
I also grabbed some Neon Crayons from Amazon and just tied a cute ribbon so that it’d be secure on the box. Took me 5 minutes total once I printed out my file, cut it and secured it.
Your teacher will love this gift and who doesn’t need some neon crayons or dry erase markers? This is the perfect free Back to School printable and teacher gift, enjoy!

Make an easy DIY popsicle holder and save yourself a headache and a huge mess. These ABC, Always Be Chillin’ Free Printables are
perfect to add to your Summer treat. This post contains affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
These homemade popsicle holders are so easy and quick to make. These popsicle holders will catch all your drips and keep your hands from being a complete mess. They’re reusable popsicle holders that a quick straight-line stitch is all there really needs to be done.
You can personalize these popsicle holders however you like. Using some Iron-On Vinyl that you’ve cut with your Cricut or Silhouette would be perfect for a project like this.
How to make your own Popsicle Holder
Begin by cutting your coordinating fabrics and Pellon into 2.5″ x 12″ pieces. Then take your Pellon and sandwich it in between the fabrics. Sew both sides and if you’d like, sew the top and bottom. Next, you’ll want to create your hole for your tag. You can use a Crop-a-Dile Big Bite but this step is totally optional. I just pierced the hole and then put a brad in the middle and pressed. Next, line up the edges and sew again. I left a 1″ tab on the top just for a contrast in the fabrics. Cut the edges using pinking sheers or you can use standard scissors, just be wary of fraying.
If you don’t have pinking shears for your Popsicle Holder, just use some hem glue and it’ll keep your edges nice and solid.
After you’ve sewn up the sides, add your popsicle and your gift tag. Pass them out, wash them when they’re dirty and reuse them. Such a good alternative to a paper towel and great for our environment.
Supplies for your DIY Popsicle Sleeve
I just pretty much did whatever the fabric would let me do with this project, be creative and do whatever you’d like for your own custom DIY popsicle holder. Happy Summer and Happy Sewing!
Let’s also settle a debate, what do you call them? I call them otter pops and my husband has always called them ice blocks. The ice block is rubbing off on my kids and I don’t know if I can handle that 😉
Popsicle Koozies are the perfect addition to a mess-free Summer, but let’s be real, we all like to get a little messy.

Create this fun summer gift with some water balloons and a free summer printable.This post does contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support.
I got to share these over at Design Dazzle a few weeks ago and I wanted to share them here too! My kids love summer and what better way to delight them then to have them throw stuff at each other? These water balloon free printables are the perfect little something kids need to boost them in the summer months. To make these are simple and you only need a few items.
Click on the free summer printable and print them off. I added two holes to the top of the printable and looped my ribbon inside. I then attached the water balloons and tied a bow. You can choose how you want to tie it but I just did what was easiest for me. You can use twine or thick ribbon like I did but the fun in free printables is making them your own. This denim ribbon is from The Container Store when they had their Christmas ribbon up. That’s when I love to load up on the different ribbons that I use all year round. Paper Source is also a great place for ribbons.There it is. Have so much fun and be sure to have a Splashin’ Summer!

All opinions are mine alone. #FallIntoClean #CollectiveBiasI am terrible at cleaning, my kids have seemed to follow in my footsteps. Money is always a great motivator and it helps teach them financing at the same time as well as responsibility. Now that school is about to start, I need to get them back into the routine of helping out.
My main struggle as a mother is keeping my kids motivated to want to help under my supervision rather than just nagging them and almost forcing them to do something they don’t want to. I’ve come up with these FREE printable chore charts for you to frame and hang in your home so that it’ll give your kids some accountability. I’ve marked each category with a reward system to indicate what they will earn once they’ve completed that list. The harder the jobs – the more they’ll earn. I’ve also left some blank for you to add whatever you’d like and I also didn’t specify and so it can easily be customized for your family.
- Free printable
- Dry erase marker
- Reusable sticky strips
Each paper has two lists attached sized at 5×7″. Cut the lists down to size and frame. Add your reusable sticky strips to the back of the framed list and hang wherever you think is easiest for your kids to know what chores need to be done. Keep a dry erase marker nearby so that they can mark off their duty.
I have four kids but three are old enough to do actual chores. Each of these lists contains things that each of them can do. They can choose to do it together and split the reward or they can decide for themselves if they want to do it alone.
For each of these chores, I also have them use some of my favorite cleaning products, Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day®. We grabbed them at our local Whole Foods Market because Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® will donate $1 for each product purchased for the first 25K items to Whole Kids Foundation. Whole Kids Foundation will use the $25,000 donation from Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® to support edible learning gardens and salad bars at schools which every child can learn young to eat healthy.
