Easy, healthy & delicious berry smoothie

Pin It

I came up with this recipe on one of these days where I felt I needed something fast, easy and healthy.

It makes one serving, as pictured, and I really like it..

* 1/2 cup cranberry juice (100% juice)
* 1/2 cup Greek vanilla yogurt
* 1/2 cup strawberries (I used fresh)
* 1/3 cup raspberries (I used frozen)

Put it all in the blender & blend till smooth.

Free Chalkboard Valentine Printables

Pin It

I really like the chalkboard art I've seen everywhere lately.

I gave it a try, and happened to find my attempts again today.

So I thought I'd share :)

They could be used as a card or home decor.

And the following one is a variation on this printable I created last year.

And as always: for personal use only please...

Valentine Pencil Flags - Easy handmade Valentines (Free printable)

Pin It

Do you need a fast and easy, but cute Valentine?

You've come to the right place!

The colorful text on these flags wishes you a Happy Valentine's Day,
while on the back there is room for the giver to write their names.

They're fast to make, and your kids can help, or they could even do it.

You can use Valentine pencils, or any other kind of pencil would work.
We picked plain ones for the boys and patterned ones for the girls...

Below you see the sheet you're going to print out.

One page makes 11 flags.

You can print on regular printer paper, 
colored cardstock, or scrapbook paper...

Use a paper trimmer or scissors to cut the page in strips, 
as pictured below.

Let your child fill in his or her name at this point, before they are attached to the pencils.

Use a glue stick to put glue on the strip. 
You don't need to put it on the whole strip, but make sure to put it a little further than the center of the strip. 
(So I mean more than half of the strip has glue on it.)
Hmmm, does that make sense?
This will make sure that the flag stays in place.

Cut out a little triangle.

And that is all!

Simple, right?!

My girls are excited to give these to their classmates on Valentine's day!
