An April Chalkboard {FREE!} Printable

I have been playing each month to create a new chalkboard printable, the idea being that by the end of the year I will have one 8X10 picture frame that contains a new cute monthly chalkboard written phrase which can easily be switched out.  On to April... and what phrase suits April better than this one!?!
Either print from your home computer or send to your local print shop to have printed as an 8X10 (I prefer this choice since you can often choose a matte or lustre finish!)

To download, just follow this LINK and enjoy :)

Looking for previous month's printables???

A {Girl Kinda} Superhero Birthday Party

Big sis just turned four... and big sis just happens to be a tough little cookie!  SO it wasn't that much of a surprise when she requested a superhero party... an orange superhero party, lol!  But her wish was my command, of course :)  Here are some shots from the fun little fiesta!

The Invites!
I found these fun (and free!) Superhero-ish fonts that made creating all our Superhero prints a breeze:
and you can find many more at this very cool Superhero Font site called Blambot Comic Fonts!  Check them out- they are amazing!!!

The Grub!
We decided on a simple menu: Superdogs and Veggies with Ranch... 
because Superheros Eat their Veggies!!!  The superdogs were easy to prepare too- we had two crockpots- one with the dogs and one with chili (because the adults need to eat too!) and a topping tray that I prepared the night before: onions, pickles, sauerkraut, cheese, tomatoes, and jalapeno and yellow peppers.

You can find the printables above by clicking the links below!

Sound Effect Bubbles- 4 X 6 Index Card Printable
The Banner was made from Scrapbooking paper of the colors above, then I glued on the following letters to create the: Happy Fantastic Four and simply hung on string- super easy banner!!

The Capes!
Of course superheros need capes, right?!  You can find the tutorial with free templates HERE!

The Activities!
We did a "Superhero Training Course" with a "Villain" pinata at the end.  We had tied up baby dolls (poor things!) that our little superheros had to rescue by completing the different obstacles... but it just so happened to be FREEZING that day (of course!) so we cut the training course short and skipped to beating up on the poor villain... which my husband picked out-on his own-and happened to really be a Mexican Wrestler- close enough I suppose?!
Fun stuff, right??  They seemed to all have a blast despite the frigid conditions :)  Anyone else out there have little girls requesting superhero parties??
