We are trying to limit sugar intake in our household.  So when I saw these darling Play-Doh Treat Bags on Pinterest I thought they were just perfect to give Hudson & Ella’s classmates this year.  So, I made up some play-doh ghost classroom treats and included a free printable tag to go with them.

Playdoh Ghost Classroom Treats

Items Needed:

- White Play-Doh (I bought a 3lb tub on Amazon.  Click here to view).

- Clear Favor Bags

- Ribbon

- Cardstock

- Twist Ties

- Hole Punch

Directions:

DOWNLOAD the tags.  Use Adobe Reader to edit the name (font used is Cambria Italic).  Print onto cardstock and cut out.

Simply portion out the Play-Doh according to how many classmates there are.  Place in the bag.  Use twist tie to secure closed.

Punch hole in the tag and string ribbon through.  Tie ribbon above the twist tie.

September was a busy month for us.  Here is what we were up to through Instagram pictures.  Follow along on Instagram here.

We spent the last day of summer poolside:Labor Day Pool Party

Even though it was 90 degrees outside we got cozy with a pumpkin spiced candle:

This is a girl after my own heart.  She adores crafting and will color, cut, paste, and create all day long:

In the Documenting Life Challenge we prompted mamas to document their child ready for school.  I shared my boys walking to the bus stop:

I finally got my hair done for the Influence Conference.  I realized I hadn’t had my hair colored since last December and cut since March.  So silly since my sister is my stylist.

Another prompt for Documenting Life was to capture your child with their favorite book.  Hudson and I read the Cat and the Hat:

We added a 3rd layer to our hallway gallery wall.  Eventually I would love it to go from floor to ceiling:
