Dinner Planner Printables

Hello there, HAPPY FALL!

It is our busy time of year! School activities, holidays coming up, my little one turns 5 in September, and Barbara’s turns 4 in October, not to mention both of our wedding anniversaries are in Fall! Where is the time going?

We try to make things runs as smoothly as possible by being as organized as possible and planning, planning is key. We plan our trips (apple picking time!), organize our schedule around activities, and try to keep our homes running as smoothly as possible (which for me, with 3 boys is not always that smooth).

One thing we both like to do to is meal plan. It helps with time, budget, and making sure our family eats healthy meals.

We have created and want to share with you this handy dinner-planning printable. It has a section for each day of the week along with a place for notes and a shopping list along the bottom. We have also created coordinating recipe cards, so you can quickly write down some of your favorite recipes and add them to you weekly meal plan.

Plan a Safari Day!

Hippo to Color

Adventure awaits when you plan a safari-themed party or gathering for your favorite people!

Whether celebrating someone's special day or just having fun with friends, a safari-theme is a great way to play!  You can set up a safari scavenger hunt, have the explorers search from one clue to the next and end it with a special treat!  If you have a wagon, you can turn it into a "boat" and take your guests on a jungle-themed cruise, setting up different scenes along the way, like a snapping alligator pond, rhinos on the savanna, elephants in a wading pool and giraffes munching from the trees (toy animals only, please).  A craft station is perfect for your safari adventure, create friendships bracelets or decorate hats.  Keep the foods healthy, fresh and light for the warm jungle, but give the food cute names like "Crocodile Cucumber", "Macaw Mac and Cheese", "Watering Hole Watermelon", and "Safari-So-Salad.

A fun themed event any day is a great way to create a memory.  No need limit you gatherings to just birthdays and holidays.

We want to help you get started with this coloring page, our gift to you, a fun (and funny) Hippo and his bird friend all dressed and ready for their adventure. Click here for your coloring page PDF.
