For the first one, I cut out little kidney bean shaped jelly beans from construction paper.  For the second, we used real jelly beans, which are usually pretty easy to find year round.  I tried to stick with the colors that come in most packages.

Candy Corn Counting Math Worksheets {Free Printables}

Candy Corn and Pumpkins Free Printable Halloween Worksheets 1

Sooo… Easter’s kind of around the corner and I’m over here like, gee… I haven’t posted any of my Halloween stuff yet…

Well, better late than never, right?

Hopefully you agree.  :)

Candy Corn and Pumpkins Free Printable Halloween Worksheets 2

For last Halloween, I made these to help my kids practice counting.  My girls are in preschool and kindergarten, and these worksheets have a variety of activities for them, including counting the shapes, matching the candy to the shapes, figuring out which is biggest and smallest group, and tracing the numbers both as figures and as words.

For the Candy Corn Counting worksheet we used regular candy corn.  For the Pumpkin Patch Counting worksheet, we used the pumpkins out of a bag of mixed mallowcremes, but you could also get a bag of just the pumpkins, or even something like these jelly pumpkins.

If you’re trying to avoid giving your kids any extra candy, you could pick up some Halloween erasers instead, which you can usually find at a dollar store if it’s actually, you know, around Halloween.  Or you could pick up some on Amazon instead.  The erasers are also good because you can keep using them for other math activities afterwards.

Or, you could avoid both the candy and the toys altogether and just color in the shapes.  No toys to lose and nothing to eat.

Even though the eating was, you know, my kids’ favorite part.

ABC Teacher Thank You Tags and Cut Out Cookies (Free Printable)

Printable ABC Teacher Thank You Tags

Well, now that the school year is starting again, I am reminded that I never posted about the Teacher Thank You tags that I made for my kids’ teachers at the end of the last school year.

Better late than never, amiright?

Anyway, I printed these up so that we could make some letter-shaped sugar cookies for their teachers and put them in little baggies.  This way the teachers would get a gift the girls made themselves and one that wouldn’t take up a bunch of space somewhere.

These tags obviously work best for teachers in preschool or kindergarten, but I think they would be pretty cute to give to a high school teacher too….. or is that just me??

Plus, I left a spot for your kids to sign the tags.  And that photo at the top of the post?  That scribble is actually how my 3yo was signing her name at the time.  I just wrote out her name on the back so that the teacher could remember who it was from.

Printable ABC Teacher Thank You Tags

All you have to do is print out the tags, punch a hole in them, and tie them to whatever gift you’re giving.

I picked up these snack baggies at Target and the string at the dollar store.

Printable ABC Teacher Thank You Tags and Cut Out Cookies

We made A B C cookies to match the tags.

Well, actually, we made A, B, C, D, and then the first letters of both of my girls’ names.

And we used these Wilton cookie cutters.

And the recipe I used was the same one I made last year to make some autumn leaves.

I just used different cutters and icing colors this time around.

Printable ABC Teacher Thank You Tags and Cut Out Cookies

I love baking with my girls.  They enjoy being in the kitchen and cooking is a great way to learn all kinds of concepts, though mostly we just enjoy eating the food we make.  :)

Printable ABC Teacher Thank You Tags and Cut Out Cookies

Remember to roll out the dough extra thick so that you get nice, soft cookies.

And don’t over-bake them – they’ll appear “almost” done when they’re actually done.

Printable ABC Teacher Thank You Tags and Cut Out Cookies

Mix up the icing using some Meringue Powder to make it nice and shiny.

This stuff is great.  It smells good and it lasts forever.

Printable ABC Teacher Thank You Tags and Cut Out Cookies

You can do just one color.  If you do multiple colors, please remember that you don’t need a lot of food coloring in each dish.  Unless you want super bold colors, like mine.

I had intended to go for a pastel look….. but I didn’t get there, obviously.  Can I blame it on my kids?  They WERE the ones distracting me after all…….

Printable ABC Teacher Thank You Tags and Cut Out Cookies

Anyway, the best way to ice them cookies is by just dipping them into the bowl of icing.

Make sure you stir the bowl between each cookie and let the excess drip off (or scrape it off the sides with the fork if it’s a LOT of excess).

Printable ABC Teacher Thank You Tags and Cut Out Cookies

Then just put them on the racks and let the icing harden.

See how thick they are?

*drool*

Printable ABC Teacher Thank You Tags and Cut Out Cookies

It makes plenty.  So you’ll totally be able to save some for yourselves.  Store the extras in a covered container.

And feel free to experiment with the icing – my 5yo did a few tie-dyed cookies.

So, first, here are is the PDF of the printable tags:

ABC Teacher Thank You Tags

And here is the cookie recipe that I used.  It’s the same one I used to make some colorful autumn leaves (scroll down for printable PDF):

Soft Sugar Cookies with Icing

Ingredients:

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla (or almond) extract
1/3 cup sour cream
3 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Icing:
2 cups confectionery sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons meringue powder
1 teaspoon vanilla (or 1/2 teaspoon almond) extract
3 to 4 tablespoons water

Cream together the butter and sugar with a mixer until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg, sour cream, and extract until smooth. In a small bowl, combine the flour, salt, and baking powder, then slowly mix into the wet ingredients until just combined. Do not over mix. Separate the dough in half and roll each piece out between two sheets of waxed paper to a thickness of about 1/2 inch. Refrigerate dough for an hour.

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Remove dough from refrigerator and cut out desired shapes with cookie cutters. Gently gather scraps and reroll on a floured surface. Place cookies an inch apart on parchment lined cookie sheets and bake for 9 to 11 minutes. Do not over bake! Take them out when they appear just about to be done, and before they brown. Let cool completely on a wire rack before icing.

Mix all of the icing ingredients together with a fork. Start with 3 tablespoons of water and add more, about a 1/2 teaspoon at a time, until you reach a consistency where a thick line of icing slowly and smoothly drips off of the fork when lifted from the bowl. Dye it your desired color, dividing it between separate bowls first if using multiple colors.

Dip the tops of the completely cooled cookies into the icing. Gently pull out the cookie and use a fork or skewer to scrape off excess icing without touching the cookie itself. Set cookie on top of a wire rack that’s positioned over waxed paper or foil and allow to harden completely, letting the cookies sit for at least an hour. Store covered.

Valentine’s Day Free Printable Tags for Pens & Pencils

FREE Valentine's Day Tags for Pens and Pencils

I recently posted some Printable Valentine’s Day Tags for Bubbles, which were the treats my kids handed out to their classes for Valentine’s Day.

Then I realized that their teachers may not want bubbles as a present….

And as I browsed the shelves, looking at everything from candy to candles, I wandered into the school supply aisle and spied some colorfully decorated gel pens.

I thought they looked fun, and teachers always need pens…..

Free Printable Valentine's Day Tags for Pens and Pencils

So I picked up the pens and made some printable tags for them.

The tags have an illustration of a pen on them, which is light so you can write over it, and after you cut them out, you just need to use a hole punch to add a hole to the one side.

I made them in both red and blue, so you can pick whichever you like best, and I tied them onto the pens with some bakers twine.

The gel pens actually make a really cute gift for older kids as well, and it’s a great non-candy option.

Here are the two tags in printable PDF form:
