Summer it up!

Summer is here and at Greenacre, 
Grasping every hot, sunny day we get ....come on and join us!

It might just create a need for some coupons to 
reward the kids for good behaviour.
Never underestimate the positive effects of a fun slide!
 Here are some free responsibility rewards coupons I have created.

These were the lunch notes I made for my baby girl during the last weeks of school.
If you would like to create your own here are some blank versions I created.

These  could double for favour tags for a Summer or Beach party.
However you are spending these splendid days of Summer...
Make sure y'all

Fabulous Fall Inspirations

Fall is in full swing at Greenacre!
 We kicked things off by our first trip to the pumpkin patch. It was their opening weekend and God blessed us with the most perfect fall weather to enjoy it.
The day was filled with wagon rides, rolling hills, kettle corn, pumpkin donuts and pumpkins. Lots and lots of pumpkins.
A delicious feast for the eyes and senses that sung Fall is here!
To help spread the joy of this glorious season I am sharing these FABULOUS FALL INSPIRATIONS.

Free Fall craft and Scavenger hunt printable

Happy first Sunday afternoon of Autumn!. 
To commemorate the occasion at Greenacre, we made some beautiful Fall flowers.
It doubled as a scavenger hunt and opportunity to teach my twin toddlers about colours and for my six year old to practise her counting.

We are blessed to have a forest in the backyard so it did not take to long for the girls to find everything on the list. 

Here is a free printable you can download to make you own scavenger list with: 

ADVENTURE TIP- place the leaves books flat inside a book with something really heavy on top of the book for a couple It flattens the leaves which makes them easier to glue.
 I cut four squares out of scrapbook paper and had my daughters arrange the leaves into a flower. The leaves were glued to the paper then cut out. Placing the flower face down, the branch was glue to the back of the flower. To be secure the branch to the flower, I glued a paper X right on top of it.

A couple of weeks ago one of the twins stuck a fake berry up her nose. My husband tried to remove it using tweezers and even a toothpick , with no luck. Hello trip to the emergency!
I got super lucky and not only was it empty but I got a really good nurse that knew exactly what to do.
First place you finger on top of the unobstructed nostril, take a deep breath  then place your mouth on top of the child and BLOW!.  It will send the object flying out of their nose. 
This is the best tip I have ever received and something I will be putting to use frequently.

Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree.

Tuesday's Tips

Spring cleaning has left me with alot of baby clothing that the girls can no longer use. I don't know of any one that is having a baby girl to pass them on to. So I have come up with a couple of ideas that allow me to teach the girls about recycling and re-using things instead of throwing them out.
The first one is to use the clothing for dolls. 
Lucky for me I have 3 girls and LOTS of dolls they can dress up.
Try sewing some blanket's together to make a big blanket you don't have to worry if it gets ruined. 
These are my favourite! The twins wore them on their first birthday and it killed me to give them up. 
First I turned the shirt inside out and sewed along the bottom.
Then I sewed up the sleeves, stuffed them and sewed up the collar.
 As soon as Cesina saw them, she wanted all her t-shirts were to become pillows.
Seeing as there is no room for so many pillows, I decided a manicure would make her just as happy.
She came up with the rainbow nails and different stickers idea. The stickers can be found at dollar stores but make sure you use a clear coat because they tend to come off really easily if you don't top coat them.
The Halloween costumes also came out as the Spring closet cleaning continued and I was surprised that a size 7-8 fit the twins so well and they are a size 2T.

How perfect...a LPS bunny costume.I think I will have Cesina wear this as she hunts down the Easter baskets.
These are the tips I found online to deter snakes from your yard; 
  • Remove vegetation from your home
  • Kill any rodents you find outside of your home 
  • Place a mothball and water mixture in coffee cans and poke holes in the top of the cans. Then set the cans out to deter the snakes.
  • Seal any cracks around your home. Rattlesnakes tend to search for cooler, damper areas 
  • during the summer so it is advisable to cover existing crevices around garage doors or 
  • beneath basements to prevent them from entering these areas. 
  • Water or swimming pool pumps should be properly covered as well. 
  • Moist places in your yard, such as water fountains in your garden or any existing ponds, are ideal places for rattlesnakes
  • Eliminate rattlesnake homes and nesting-sites.  Which includes such things as wood piles, rock piles, garbage piles, long grass, brush, undergrowth, piles of building materials, animal burrows, etc. 
  • Think about the places that would be cozy for a snake to move into and remove them. 
  • But be careful when you remove them! There may already be a rattlesnake in residence.
I thought I might add praying to the list because I can not control the rodents, or do anything about the tall grasses around the property. The moth balls might not be a good idea until the twins are older. best option!

With Easter on our doorstep, I wanted to share these amazing free printables and ideas  I found.
