"POP" Soda Sleeve
Isn't that just sweet?
What a really cute Father's Day gift idea!
FYI Father's Day is the 3rd Sunday in June each year (here in the USA).
As you can see from the label picture (without can), there is a "Nutritional Facts" chart. I am sure that this was what sold me on the whole thing! Two thumbs way up to Alison at oopseydaisyblog.com!!!
Following this link will not only lead you to the place to download this, it also gives pretty clear directions and a little back ground info about where the idea came from! (I love the personal touches!)
Note: If your "Pop" drinks "ZERO" soda's, this would even blend in with the can! :)
Today I stumbled over these super awesome choo-choo train birthday party stuffs at poofycheeks.com. There are (as shown below) cupcake toppers, bottle labels, (not shown below) invitations, and "thank you" medallions.
These are a few of the things that I have put together from a few of my favorite posts. Links to the project page is listed to the side. :)
This one was just a precursor for what is to come, kind of like my rough draft. I was just wanting to see how hard it was. I used PowerPoint to edit and it was really easy!
BEAR IN A BALLOON GROWTH CHART
This is in a corner and was sort of hard to get a full-length picture of, but it is really super cute! Denver is now 86 cm or 33.9 in. tall today! :) You may not be able to see it, but there is a ladybug tag-thingy (included in download) marking that number and I wrote the date on it. This project made me truly happy! :) Note: This has very tight corners at the head area of the bear that have to be cut out carefully! Its big and the instructions are pretty intense! But I do not regret the effort! .......Please don't tell the people at Canon, but I shave off 20 minutes and a lot of stress by lining up the pieces by "eye balling" them and using tape instead of a tooth pick, glue and a straight edge. I know, shamefully lazy right? I have a toddler, I do what I can, when I can, as quickly as I can!
I have done other things, but these are my favorites! :) Please feel free to email me pics of the projects that you have found here at freeprintablefun.org, (give me the good, the bad, and/or ugly, let's have fun together) and I will share them too! :)
HAPPY DAY, HAPPY PRINTING!

Here in my old Kentucky home (literally, it's old) I have woke to the sounds of wind and lightning more times in the past few weeks than I care to mention. Twice now my lights have been out for an hour or more, and today is very overcast so I am not sure how long the juice will stay on today. All of this being said, when I was looking for something to blog about today I though..hmm...BEN FRANKLIN! The genius with a key and kite, the father of electricity and much, much more.
I wasn't sure what all I would be able to find that was both "free" and "printable", but the internet love's "free & printable Ben"! (Except for when it's his face and it's on money, we have older post free-printable-play-money-beware which will give you more insight on that one.) Back to the subject at hand; I found a wealth of great teaching aids on the life, accomplishments, quotes, inventions, etc. of Mr. Benjamin Franklin. I have several links listed below to several different websites, grab up a copy of all of them! :)
These first two will go hand in hand, but I must warn that one is a downloadable digital presentation telling of the life and times of Benjamin Franklin, the other is a timeline that can be filled in as the presentation goes is played. Here are the links for those: Digital Presentation B.F. Timeline , Timeline Worksheet.
The next item up for grabs is a The Animated Hero Classics Resource and Activity Book. This is based on the popular PBS cartoon series "Liberty's Kids". It is a 40-something page printable activity book with Parent & Teacher Resource pages. I love this!!!
Here are directions for making a "Putting Together Benjamin Franklin" kite. This is cute interactive craft that has opening panels and and is sure to make learning fun!
The second to last things that I am listing are all from the same place, studenthandouts.com. These are all separate links to black lettering on white page quotes from the man himself, and they have life lessons that I believe are worth posting on the bulletin board ALL year round! :)

And lastly, a cute Kite Puzzle brought to us by homeschool.about.com. It's just a print, cute, fit together piece, easy-peezy. Great for all ages! :)
Happy Day, Happy Teaching, Happy Learning, Happy Printing! :)

I am posting to links below. Both links lead to pages that make learning the art of ZEN TANGLING tangible for even the most many-thumbed of us.
Learning Zen Tangle Waves
Learning the Art of Zen Tangle
Both are fairly simple to follow with pictures to guide you. To print the pages of directions without printing the whole page simply right click the image and "save as".
Good Luck To You All! :)
(I am going to try to make the pretty flower at the bottom of the page from the second link, so wish me luck too!)
This map is so stunning that it could easily be printed and matted to be hung as a lovely piece of wall art. This could be a part of a history lesson for my homeschool moms out there, for any history teacher for that matter! Scrapbook paper, wrapping paper, done up as a book cover, edited to make stationary...this royalty free image is to awesome for words and with more potential uses than I have words! :)
There are directions on the left hand side of the page for how to save, but to save you the time of having to look for said directions (it's hard to take your eyes off of the map) I will tell you that it's as simple as finding the image (this one is the second image on the page, the other is lovely too), right clicking and "save image as". Have fun with this one!
HAPPY DAY, HAPPY PRINTING!
Everyone knows that I have a small "blog crush" on Free Pretty Things For You. Keren Dukes is always coming up with some of the most adorable vintage style printables and for every need (or real close to it!) Recently Keren from freeprettythingsforyou.com became a new member of the highly respected Shabby Blogs; a big congrats to her! :)
