Summer Reading Punch Card
It's official, my baby girl graduated high school. We had a wonderful week celebrating her accomplishments and spending time with her. I am excited to have some time to blog again now that things have settled down a little around here. I can't wait to share my photos of her graduation party along with some fun party ideas with you.
Today I wanted to share a free printable for a SUMMER READING PUNCH CARD I made for all you parents out there trying to keep your kids reading this summer. This is a great way to motivate them during the long summer months to spend time reading. Each card has a blank space for you and your child to choose the reward they want to work toward. Your rewards can be something as simple as earning TV or computer time, or something a little more special like going to a movie, a daddy daughter date night, or a family water balloon fight. It's fun to choose something that lets us spend some special one on one time with them celebrating their accomplishment. What reward you choose will certainly depend on how many books you estimate your child will read this summer, and just how much motivation you are going to need to get them excited about reading. No matter what reward you choose, the sense of accomplishment they will feel and practice this will give them to learn to set goals will be invaluable.
Meaningful and Useful Graduation Gift for Under $2
Can you believe that it is only weeks before high school graduation? I have a senior graduating this year (tear) and I am pretty much in denial that this it happening. If it has to happen, I guess I better get prepared.
This is a great graduation gift idea if you have to buy gifts for a group of graduates like your teens friends or a church class or youth group. You can buy the cheap little photo albums at Michaels Craft Stores or a lot of the dollar stores carry them. They are nothing fancy just simple little brag books. You can easily pull out the cardstock cover already in the book and replace it with the free printable cover below. I mounted my cover on scrapbook paper and then cut a square of that same scrapbook paper to insert in the back. Then you can fill the book with 3x5 recipe cards (you can download our matching recipe cards below) of your favorite simple recipes that would be great for a college student, missionary, or kid living on their own for the first time. This makes this gift meaningful because you put the thought and effort into compiling the recipes. If you don't have a lot of simple and easy recipe ideas, check out Our Humble Hive on pinterest. I have compiled a bunch of recipe links perfect for this gift on my "College Kid" board.
