Remember your favorite moments of 2017 with free 2017 kids journal pages! It's so easy with these fill-in-the-blank pages.

Create a book and add to it each year.

1. Get your journal pages below.

2. Print, color, and fill out.
I like to have my kids use these colored pencils for the coloring because they create a consistent color and don’t have those little hard spots that can damage paper like some of the kid brands.

3. Grab a binder and sheet protectors (I like THESE heavy duty ones).

4. Add your pages each year and enjoy!

If you love your pages as much as I do, scan the finished pages then save and email to yourself in case anything happens to the originals!

Avoid being the banned friend- 10 kids rules for visiting friends’ homes

Avoid being the banned friend- 10 kids rules for visiting friends’ homes

It’s so important for kids to make friends and learn how to be a guest. Here are 10 rules for visiting friends’ homes.

10 rules for visiting friends' homes to teach your kids. It's so important for kids to make friends and learn how to be a guest. Etiquette, manners, polite.

Recently a neighbor child stopped by to play. My kids were excited to have a guest, and it was fun for them to play.

Within a few minutes of arriving, the boy told me he was hungry. Dinnertime was approaching and I wasn’t going to feed my kids that close to dinner so that’s what I said. (*Please note: I know this child is well fed at home. If he wasn’t, I would’ve reacted differently)

He started wandering through the house and opening closets and such. I politely asked him to not open things without asking- that’s what I expect my kids to do at their friends’ houses. He stomped off to another area and did the same thing.

About this point, I told him I wasn’t trying to be mean, but at our house, I expect guests to follow our rules. I let him know he’s welcome to visit, and shared with him what I expect.

I honestly wasn’t sure how he would react but he looked surprised and said, “you’re the meanest mom in the neighborhood.”

It probably didn’t help that I started laughing.

So, maybe I’m mean but my kids are expected to use their manners at their friends’ homes.

10 rules for visiting friends' homes to teach your kids. It's so important for kids to make friends and learn how to be a guest. Etiquette, manners, polite.

Rules for visiting friends’ homes

  1. Remember to say please and thank you.
  2. Take off your shoes. Not every family does this, but it’s better show respect.
  3. Looking in rooms without permission. If you aren’t invited, don’t go there.
  4. Looking in the fridge, cupboards, closets, or drawers.
  5. Don’t ask for or help yourself to food. Have a snack before heading to a friends’ house. If they offer a snack, it’s fine to accept. It’s not fine to walk in the door and start nagging everyone for food. (This doesn’t mean I never give kids food…)
  6. Putting feet on or jumping on furniture. It isn’t allowed at home, so it seems like it would go without saying, but make sure they know it’s not okay at other homes either.
  7. Bringing along a pet without prior permission.
  8. No rough-housing inside.
  9. Remember certain toys may be off limits. Some are special or really expensive so plan to leave those alone.
  10. Be kind to friends’ siblings. They like to play too! Include them and treat them as well as you’d like to be treated.

Tips for school picture day- avoid an awkward disaster!

School picture day can be a great way to create memories. Use these tips to help the day go smoothly. We all want fabulous pictures!

Picture Day Clothes

  1. Pick a color that looks great on your child.School picture day can be a great way to create memories. Use these tips to help the day go smoothly. Kids, what to wear, pictures, class, student, teacher
  2. Stay away from busy patterns or logos.

  3. Avoid words/phrases. They can look cluttered and some of the words or letters could be cut off and look awkward. Even if you’re doing a full length photo, keep in mind the mini pictures on the class photo will be cropped.School picture day can be a great way to create memories.

  4. Be sure clothes are clean and iron if needed. Even small wrinkles are accentuated in photos.

  5. For small kids, consider sending an extra shirt in their backpack- just in case.
  6. Dress weather appropriate. You might love their new sweater but if it’s 90 degrees out, you could end up with a red face and an overheated look in the picture. Not to mention wet, sticky hair. Check the weather forecast to be prepared.
  7. Choose clothes that your child will be comfortable in. If they’re itchy, self-conscious, or distracted by their clothes, it will probably show in their portrait.

More things to consider

  1. Jewelry is fun but be careful not to go too big- you want the focus to be on your child’s face. Same goes for watches, scarves, and other accessories.
  2. Choose a flattering hairdo that’s on the sturdy side. If there’s a little wind or pictures are after recess, what will still survive?
  3. Hopefully pictures will be taken early in the day, but you never know. Avoid packing lunches with foods that could be really messy or stick in their teeth. No grape juice, broccoli, oranges, celery, chocolate, pudding, or foods that are easily spilled.
  4. Styles come and go but avoid extremes you might regret by the time their pictures arrive.
    School picture day can be a great way to create memories. Use these tips to help the day go smoothly. Kids, what to wear, pictures, class, student, teacher
  5. Good sleep the night before and breakfast in the morning will help avoid cranky and grumpy pictures.
  6. Relax! Don’t put too much pressure by giving your kids 20 things to remember. If your kids have fun during their picture, it will show through and give a better boost to the end result. You might remind them of a happy time to think of during their session.
    Yes, I said 12 then added an extra tip!
