Yay! It’s Thursday! Sarah, my Printable Contributor is here sharing another awesome printable with all of you. This one is All About My Mom for Mother’s Day and it is just adorable. I love reading Questionnaires filled out by little kids. They’re so honest and unpredictable. Here’s Sarah!

Hi everyone!

It’s Sarah here, back with another edition of your free monthly printable! This month, I decided to create something cute for Mother’s Day. I thought about when I taught Kindergarten and I worked on some cute “All About My Mom” sheets with my students. The answers little kids give to some common questions are so funny, and I know as a Mom, those are the things I want to preserve.

All About My Mom - a fun questionnaire for kids to fill out and a wonderful keepsake for Mother's Day!

I decided to create my own All About Mom questionnaire for kids to fill out. This would be great for teachers to use, as well as Dads, grandparents, and anyone else who can help a child sneak away from Mom for a few minutes to get some top secret answers. If kids can print themselves already, it is even cuter in their handwriting, but it also works when an adult writes it! (Here’s a pic my friend snapped of her son filling one out!)

All About My Mom - a fun questionnaire fo rkids to fill out and a wonderful keepsake for Mother's Day!

I created two versions – one in color and one in black & white, which you can grab here. I also included two sizes – one is a full page print, and the other is an 8×10 print, for use in a frame. If you are having trouble printing the full page print without your edges being cut off, the 8×10 print will work best for you too.

Hope you enjoy this printable and your kids have fun with it! Have a Happy Easter, and see you again next month!

I love Sarah’s idea of framing the Questionnaire. It would be fun to have kids fill out a new one every year and then replace it in the frame. I love comparing my kids projects from year to year. Have a wonderful Easter!

Dollar Bow Garland

Dollar Bow Garland 7.1

Here is another garland I made for Emilee’s birthday and to decorate her bedroom door. This is another great way to give money as a gift. To make the Dollar Bow Garland you can make as many bows as you like and in any denomination.

Dollar Bow Garland 5

My folding skills aren’t amazing so I decided on making a simple bow. Start by folding the bill in half length wise.

Dollar Bow Garland 4

Fold one end of the bill toward the center, then the other end. Overlap them slightly in the center.

Dollar Bow Garland 3.1

Accordion fold the center of the bill a bit then smush it together.

Dollar Bow Garland 2

Cut a length of bakers twine and wrap it around the center of the bill a few times to secure it. Tie in a double knot on the back of the bow and cut off the excess.

Cut bakers twine for the length of the banner. Thread it on a needle and take it thru the center of each bow. Space bows as desired.

Dollar Bow Garland 6.1

Emilee loved it! It would make a great necklace too. Just space the bows closer together and cut twine to desired necklace length. Graduation is fast approaching and any high school graduate would think it was fun to receive a few bucks like this, don’t you think?

I have one more garland I made for her birthday. I’ll be posting it in the next few days.

Under the bed is the perfect place to add more storage without taking up any much needed space in a bedroom or guest room. Since moving to a smaller home with smaller bedrooms, it’s been important for me to utilize any space available and under the bed was the most obvious and convenient. Many of […]
