Coloring Dinosaurs Shirts

When I was a kid, I loved coloring in the outline designs that were printed on table cloths, and I still have one of them.

Kids love to color, and they also like to feel useful. With these fun dinosaur shirts, both boys and girls can get in on the coloring fun.

The outlines are also available individually on the shirt style of your choice.

Click on the links above to be taken to Zazzle, a print on demand company, and choose the style and size tshirt of your choice.

Happy coloring.

If they're not into coloring in the dinosaurs, this design also looks great on darker colored shirts.

A fun way to play hangman

Hangman is a spelling game, where one person thinks of a word or phrase and draws lines for the letters to go on. The other players guess the letters, until the word is spelled, or until the stick man is filled on on the hanging poll.

My daughter and I played this game the other night on a dry erase board, and it was fun, being able to play several games and then erase them.

So I thought it would be even more fun, for hang man fans, to not have to erase and draw the poll each time, or the letters.

With the letters provided, as they are called out, they are lined off with the marker, so everyone can easily see which letters are left.

You can order you hangman dry erase board by clicking on the link below, which will take you to the site.

The paper notepad version is also a fun and portable idea. These can be carried along in a purse or tote bag; then you can easily play in restaurants while waiting for your meal. This size measures 5.5 by 6 inches and has three hangman games per page.

Tool Shirts for the Handy Man

Have you ever watched the Red Green Show on PBS. The lead man in the show often says, "If they don't find you handsome, at least let them find you handy," or something like that. He is referring to men making an impression on women.

Impression or not, some men like working with tools. So here are some fun ideas to celebrate handy men.

This first design is spelled with a painting of tools:

If your tool man is less colorful, then there is also a design with just the outline drawings:

Did you say that your handy person is a woman? Don't fret; we've got ya covered:

Art on Products - Candy Jars

When I was a kid, I loved that our next door neighbor usually had some candy. She often bought some back from her vacations just to share with us kids.

She also had special candy treats for the holidays. These candies were usually red and white, or else green and white.

Our neighbor usually had these little hard candy treats in special dishes, so it seemed like even more of a treat, than picking some up from the Five and Dime.

If you are wondering what a Five and Dime is, it is a small department store, or at least it was. I don't know if there are any more left. But I do like the memory of my neighbor. She was a treat.

Do you have any special neighbors like that?

I think these hard candies would look cute in a special candy jar.

A Plus Apple Gifts for Teachers

I've read that there are teachers who want something other than apple gifts, but I am sure that there are plenty of new teachers who don't have many, if any, apple gifts, yet, and also those teachers that just plain like apples. So here you go.

This first gift is great for the home ec teachers. It features a red apple on a bib apron. It can be ordered in the short length or a long length.

This wide tote comes in handy for carrying papers, books, etc. back and forth between home and school.

This same design is also on mugs, for the teacher's beverage, or you can mix it up a bit with a sliced apple, with a prophetic message.

Be sure to let your teacher know what you think of them. There is a message on the inside of this card, which can also be customized with your own words.

Who is your favorite teacher?

Pizza Party Ideas and Supplies

Are you planning to have a pizza party, or pizza at a birthday party? Here are some fun invitations and ideas to help you out.

These pizza themed postcard invitations can be filled in by hand on the pre-printed form, or you can customize the text online before placing your order. They feature my painting of a whole pizza. The cover text can be customized to the type of party that you are having.

The pizza can be served up on fun paper plates:

Kids can color in their own pizza on canvas tote bags. The coloring design is also on canvas bags for coloring fun. I recommend fabric paint markers. There is less mess than with tubs and brushes. If you do the coloring activity, be sure to place a flat sheet of cardboard in between the fabric layers. It is also best for the painting to be done during the early part of the party so that the paint will have time to dry.

There's also a special apron for the chef:
