Marvel Universe Live Kansas City Ticket Giveaway

Disclosure: I will receive tickets for my family to this show from Feld Entertainment. I am not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are honest and 100% my own.

If you were to look into Connor's room right now you would find more superhero toys than you can count. He has Captain America's shield, Thor's hammer, an Iron Man helmet, and even Hulk smash fists. He loves all of the Marvel characters but his favorite by far is Hulk. I can't wait to see his face when we take him to see Marvel Universe Live next month at the Sprint Center in Kansas City! 

We've seen Feld Entertainment's Disney productions before and they are always amazing so I'm excited to see the Marvel show for the very first time. I wasn't sure if Grace would be interested but once she saw the preview she was hooked and keeps asking if we can go see the show now. She loves Black Widow and I'm happy to see that many of the female Marvel heroes are included in the show.

Marvel fans, assemble! Marvel Universe LIVE! is taking the live entertainment experience to a whole new level, with a mind-blowing show unlike anything you’ve seen before.

Christmas Teacher and Class Gifts for Preschool

Christmas is sneaking up on me and I realized the other day that I need to get on the ball with gifts for Grace's teachers and classmates. I had so much fun making things for them last year so I thought I'd share if anyone else is desperately searching Pinterest (like I am now!) for inspiration. I decided on a reindeer theme last year and I started with gifts for each of her classmates.
Preschool Christmas Class Gifts

These Reindeer Chocolate Bars are simple and ADORABLE! Grace got so many compliments on them. 

Full size Hershey bars
Brown wrapping paper (I found mine at Hobby Lobby)
Brown pipe cleaners- one per reindeer
Googly eyes
Red glitter paper (found at Hobby Lobby)
Black marker
Red ribbon- optional
Silver bells- optional 

1. Wrap each Hersey bar with brown wrapping paper, leaving the ends open
2. Cut circles from red sparkle paper to create nose. Glue on googly eyes and nose. Draw mouth on using a marker.
3. Cut brown pipe cleaner into 6 pieces. Attach 2 to the top of the reindeer's head as antlers with tape and wrap the other 4 pieces tightly around the antlers to complete the look. 
4. Put bell onto ribbon and attach ribbon around using tape.

I taped a gift tag on the back to cover the ribbon seam saying Merry Christmas from Grace. 

I had several smaller gifts for her teacher that I wanted a gift bag for and decided to stick with the reindeer theme. This bag was inspired by a tutorial on Fiskars and I was so pleased with how it turned out. A simple paper bag is easily created into a reindeer with some paper shapes, a red sparkly nose, and a pipe cleaner rolled into the top of the bag. I filled it with a chocolate bar reindeer, a Barnes & Noble gift card, a homemade cinnamon ornament featured below, a picture that Grace colored, and a handwritten thank you note. 

Preschool Teacher Christmas Gift

I wanted to create something for the administration staff at her preschool so I gave them each some candy as well as a homemade cinnamon ornament. We used this recipe from McCormick and I have to say that my house smelled delicious for days after!

I used silver elastic cord instead of ribbon for hangers and let the kids decorate the majority of the ornaments with metallic markers. They had a great time coloring away and it added a personal touch for her teachers. I wish I had made more for our tree because I love them!

Now back to the drawing board (ie Pinterest) to search for ideas for this year. I'm running out of time! What is your favorite gift to give teachers for the holidays?
