Grandma Ideas Link Party 6

Here we are once again with another link party! My how time flies when you are having fun.

be kind or be quiet free printableI happened upon a wonderful site that had a wonderful free printable. The site was By Dawn Nicole. Her free printable says “Be Kind or Be Quiet.” Click on the picture to the right to go to her site to download it — it’s beautiful and I think that you’ll love it, too. (You might want to share it with your children so they can share the quote with THEIR kids.)

As I was growing up, my mother would always say, “If you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all.”

And, I said that to my children, too. But, this saying is more succinct. Plus, it’s catchy. I think it could become a family’s motto or catch phrase.

Well. I’m excited to see who will participate in this week’s link party and the wonderful things they will share!

Let’s get started!

St. Patrick’s Day Vintage Cards

Here are free printables for vintage St. Patrick's Day cards. Print and frame them. Place them on mantels, bookshelves, or in wreaths. I love vintage graphics.

Is that because I am vintage myself?

Probably!

What about you? Do you like them?

The Graphics Fairy has some wonderful vintage St. Patrick’s Day cards that are just begging to be used.They are so delightful.

Of course, you could use them as cards because that is what they were originally designed for. You could print them up to give to your grandchildren.

Or, you could print them up to use as decorations. Make a flock to display on your mantel, bookshelf, or end table.

Or, use them in your craft projects — in a wreath, as bookmarks for the grandchildren, Mod Podged onto a glass vase. Or simply print and frame — like I did.

I liked the one of St. Patrick so much that I decided to frame it. I had a white frame just laying around so I printed a 5 x 7 inch copy and put it in the frame.

Here’s St. Paddy if you want to print him up. Click on the image to get a the printable size. Isn’t he a cutie?

Note: when you click on the above images and open up the PDF files, the images will look grainy. But don’t worry. Trust me. It will print up just fine.

Here’s to having a wee bit o’ fun with these graphics!

Link Party 5

I heard on the radio this morning that our area has had above average temperatures for 41 days straight in a row. Wahoo!

Fifty-seven degrees Fahrenheit is much more delightful than 5 degrees below zero! Just sayin’.

However, the weatherman said that there is a good chance for rain or snow on Friday and Saturday. Boo!

Let’s not worry about winter weather, shall we? Let’s focus on having a fun link party instead! Sound good to you? Sounds good to me!

St. Patrick’s Day Mazes

I know how mothers are concerned about the amount of sugar their kids consume — especially around holidays. So instead of giving my grandkids candy on Valentine’s Day, I printed off a heart-shaped maze and gave them the maze and a pencil with red hearts on it. (I had some coloring pages and a little craft for them, too.)

That’s when I found out that one of my grandsons really loves mazes.

So that set my little brain a-thinkin’.

I decided to make some St. Patrick’s Day themed mazes for my grandkiddos.  Of course if I do something for my grandchildren I always want to share it with you, Dear Readers.

So ta da! Here they are.

Here are several St. Patrick Day Mazes for the kids to enjoy.


Here are three St. Patrick’s Day Mazes. One is a ‘gold coin’ maze (that is a yellow circle maze), one has a shamrock in the center, and one has a leprechaun that needs help finding the pot of gold at the other side of the maze.

Feel free to print them up and share with your grandkids. Or, you can send the electronic file to your grandchildren who live far away to print and do the mazes.

I was having so much fun that I created other mazes sans pictures or themes. You can print these four mazes, too.

I hope you enjoy them!
