This weekend is going to be sooooooo much fun! We are packing up the family car tomorrow and heading out for an adventure not far from Denver (in Erie) at Anderson Farms. I am most excited about just being together but the kids can’t wait to explore and play!
We can’t wait to see Colorado’s Longest-Running Corn Maze – Take a hayride out to the pumpkin patch on a wagon pulled by an antique Oliver tractor. They have pumpkins as far as the eye can see!
We might Get Lost in our 30 acre corn maze! The maze is open day and night and is never haunted. Plus they say the whole family will enjoy Pumpkin Launching, Mine Cars, Barrel Train, Farm Animals, Kiddie Korral, Pedal Karts, Gem Mining, Private Campfires, Hay Bale Maze and the World’s Largest Cornucopia. For the more adventurous of us we plan to check out Terror in the Corn and Zombie Paintball Hunt!!!
I can’t wait to share all about it. In the meantime, here is what we will be doing on the way in the car…free printable fall fun pages! You can get them free PDF to print by clicking on the pictures!
I will share about our fun and games when we return!
This post is sponsored but the excitement is truly all mine and so will be the opinions and sharing in my follow up post to come.
Last year Zoe painted on newspaper and her creations were awesome. The sad news is that newspaper doesn’t endure the test of time. This year we decided to step it up a notch and create autumn artwork on something we could keep, and use to decorate and celebrate and entertain with. I found these awesome buffet napkins today at World Market (6 for only 9.99) and bought them for her to use to create hand painted autumn napkins.
After school, she aproned up and got busy. Using Tulip Slick Fabric Paints and round sponge application brushes, she created six different napkins.
I helped a little and used a brush to paint the stems and leaves.
We put them aside to dry for a few hours before washing and ironing them.
I think she did a fabulous job. They are so autumnly gorgeous for our table and so special because they were “Made by Zoe”!
Happy Supporting Creative Kids,

I am a complete sucker when it comes to dips. French fries would not be edible if there were not many kinds of sauces and dips to submerge in before eating them. Chips would simply be lonely if there were not dips to keep them company before they get gobbled up, right? Recently my friend shared this Doxy’s Natural Onion Soup and Dip Mix dip with me and I really excited about it because it is not only gluten free, but also fat free and Non GMO. Score! The packaging rocks too so it even works for a little gift add on!
I kept it simple. I mixed it in 16 ounces of sour cream to make the basic onion dip and let me tell you, it is FABULOUS!
I tried it with veggies and pretzels alike and going both the healthy and not-so-much-healthy routes were super delicious.
There are lots of recipes on the website of ways to use it and things to cook. I am going to try out the French onion soup and then create a baked meatloaf recipe with ground beef and veggies.
Until then, go get some and try it! It will make your taste buds happy.
You can follow Doxy’s on Facebook here!
This post was not sponsored. I got it from a friend as a gift and all opinions are completely my own. That means this is authentic and real and all me!!!
Yes, today is National Play-Doh Day! I think that is pretty awesome. Because I believe that learning happens most through play and that playing something all ages should be doing, I created little Pay-Doh gifts to head out into the world with and spread creative love.
I started at WalMart and wowza kabowza there is some awesome Play-Doh fun happening these days. Check these products out.I bought the Rainbow Packs and brought them home to create little gifts with simple wrapping and custom little tags (of course) using one of my handwritten fonts.
If you love Play-Doh, Play Cloudy With a Chance of Wine has rounded up some free printables that you can download!
I LOVE this Play-Doh sculpture from Grease. It is such a great movie!
And these guys are like rock stars in my house!
And now I am heading out. First up is my favorite Starbucks barista. He is going to LOVE his Play-Doh, I just know it. And then I will adventure to the porches of a few friends. Yes, I think I will leave one in the mailbox for our mailman too!
Happy Celebrating the Things That Matter to You,
