Shamrock Number Matching & a Flash Giveaway

Shamrock Number Matching & a Flash Giveaway

I don’t usually do much decorating for St. Patrick’s Day.  With two little ones running around, I’ll be honest, the day is going to probably be a pretty normal one, with maybe a little pinch or two.  My days of enjoying a green beverage at happy hour are long gone!

I am excited however to share a simple and fun Shamrock Number Matching Game today!

This is an easy creation that you can use again and again with your little ones {especially if you get it laminated, like I chose to do}.

All you’ll need to make a number matching game is:

Microsoft Word {to make the number mats}

Cricut Explore {to cut the shamrocks}

green cardstock

mini stickable velcro dots

laminating machine

scissors

tin to store shamrocks

I created the mats using Microsoft Word and used a fun font that I had downloaded ages ago, called Miss Smarty Pants.  To cut the shamrocks, I used my brand new Cricut Explore.  Cutting was a breeze {as usual} and I used the Cricut Spatula tool to pop the shamrocks off my mat in a snap!

I realized that I’d need to get the game laminated if I wanted it to last at all.

Toddlers + Cardstock = quick way to ruin an educational game.

So I headed to Staples and they were able to laminate everything for me for about $3.  I think in the future {especially when I’m homeschooling, I need to invest in a home laminator}.

Once I cut out each shamrock, I used mini velcro dots on the number mats and also on the shamrock cut-outs.  Yes, I realize that makes the game pretty easy seeing the correct number of dots already on the mat, but hey, my little guy is only 2 and he’s just starting to truly learn and understand what his numbers are.  This will only help him!

He loves it and took to putting the little shamrocks on all by himself immediately.

And the best part?!  Since the number mats are plain, I can create lots of different cut out shapes for future holidays and events!

The Gathering of Friends Ebook Giveaway

The Gathering of Friends Ebook Giveaway

I’m thrilled to share an awesome giveaway with all of you today.  I’ll be the first to admit, most of my recipes nowadays are either tried and true family favorites or new recipes that I stumble across on Pinterest.  Another of my latest go-to sources are the new Gathering of Friends Cookbooks.  I’ve got two hard copies including this one:

And I absolute LOVE the recipes and pictures.  I’m a big visual person, especially when it comes to cooking and preparing food.  Knowing what meals should look like, always give me something to look forward to at the end of cooking.

Another thing I’m LOVING about The Gathering of Friends line of products are their beautiful aprons.

Would you believe that up until they so graciously sent me a Tessi Apron, I didn’t own or use one!?  It is gorgeous {and will hopefully motivate me to get into the kitchen more and more}.  The feature that is just awesome about each apron is that there is a detachable necklace!  So, do your cooking wearing your super cute apron, then just unhook the clasps of the necklace away from the apron itself, and it can still be a part of your outfit…so cool {and very stylish}.
