You make my heart spin - Free Valentine's Day Printable

You make my heart spin - Free Valentine's Day Printable

Valentine's Day at school was always so exciting when I was a younger. I loved filling out all my valentine cards for my classmates and decorating my valentine shoe box.
Now that I'm a parent, it's so fun to watch my boys' excitement as they work on their valentines for their friends and family. 
This year I wanted a card option for them that could incorporate a small candy-free valentine treat, so I made these free printable valentines
supplies:
Once you have all your pinwheels made, just add a little dab of hot glue to the backs of the pinwheels, and attach to a pencil. Add the printable cards, and you're all set!
Happy crafting!

Free Gingerbread House Coloring Page

Free Gingerbread House Coloring Page

We have the tradition of letting the boys & Jane make their own "gingerbread" houses. We pick out our favorite Christmas goodies, hot glue graham crackers in the shape of a house, and have fun eating treats while we decorate. Even as they get older they still want to carry on this tradition. 

A couple of years I thought it would be fun to make a coloring page for my littles to enjoy as well, so I'm sharing it with ya'll. You can print the gingerbread coloring page here.
From the Pen & Paint family to yours, we wish you the *sweetest* of holidays!

Advent Calendar - Display Suggestions and FAQ

Advent Calendar - Display Suggestions and FAQ

Our new Pen & Paint Advent calendars are here, and we are so excited to share this special tradition with you!

Each 2020 calendar comes with 27 individual pages including a front and back cover page, a suggested daily guide, display options, and a drawstring bag for storage. This year we have different sizes and display options available. 

Our hope is that each mini print will bring joy to the tradition you and your loved ones practice as you count the days to Christmas.

Suggested Guide - The suggested guide we provide is ordered with the four Sundays of Advent (Hope–Peace–Joy–Love) beginning on November 29th. We included 26 cards for the 26 days of Advent along with a card for Christmas Day. 

Display Options - Because we know many people celebrate Advent in different ways, our goal was to make our calendar as ecumenical and versatile as possible. There are no numbers or days specified on the cards and each print is blank on the back. 

Advent Banner Display-
 One way to enjoy your Advent calendar is to hang a new print each day. For this you can use twine & mini clothespins. Hang the twine on your mantel, below a shelf, or on the wall. Each day clip the corresponding print as you count the days until Christmas.
Advent Wreath Display -
Another way to enjoy your Advent calendar is to display it in the center of your Advent wreath. For this you can use the provided wooden stand. Each day display the corresponding print as you light the candles and count the days until Christmas.
Advent Ornament Display -
Another way to enjoy your Advent calendar is to hang a new print each day on your Christmas tree. For this you can use string & a hole punch. Punch a hole in each print and add a loop of string. Each day hang the corresponding print as you count the days until Christmas.
ADVENT CALENDAR FAQs
  • When does Advent begin? This year Advent begins on Sunday, November 29th and goes through December 24th.
  • Can I use this a Christmas countdown calendar? Of course. The purpose of this is for you to enjoy the days leading up to Christmas. There are 27 pages this year which will work perfectly for counting down days from December 1-25.
  • Is this calendar just specific to 2020? Yes and no. Yes, because Advent this year is November 29 - December 24, 2020, there are 26 pages and an additional page for Christmas day. However, because there are no specific dates on the pages, so it can be used for years to come.
  • What size are the mini prints? This year we are offering two sizes - mini prints are 4x4 inches and our larger size has 5.25 x 5.25 prints. We wanted them to be versatile so we made them a size that was suitable to hang as an ornament or a banner, fit in the center of an Advent wreath, or even be used as a gift tag.
  • Are the pages dated? No, but the suggested guide will give you a date with the description of the corresponding page so you know which page to display each day.
