Handmade teacher appreciation photo frame with printable poem | DazzleWhileFrazzled.com

I dropped my kiddos off at school this morning. I did my yoga breathing as I battled the drop-off car line, rambled off my list of daily reminders of “be kind”, “eat your lunch”, “love ya” as the kids jumped out of the car, and took off to have a handful of hours of … quiet.


However, for our awesome school teachers, their day is just starting! Their patience, flexibility, superpower-like abilities to manage 25 kids. Wow!!

Anytime I can gift these special people with any token of appreciation, I’m on it. So I’m excited to collaborate with Windex® brand and Shutterfly® to bring you an easy DIY Teacher Photo Frame + Printable Poem craft. And how I clean up the crafty disaster that inevitably follows!

Have a germ free school year with Wet Ones wipes and free printable lunch box notes | DazzleWhileFrazzled.com

Am I the only one who feels like you repeat the same phrases over (and over again) to your kids? Here are some of my biggies: “Are you buckled up?”, “No touching each other!”, “Did you wash your hands?” And it’s the last one that I must repeat a dozen times each day!


Now I’m not a germaphobe in any way but with three young kids and a busy household, there’s like zero time for anyone to get sick.

So when I send my oldest kiddos off to school, I can only hope they are keeping their hands as germ-free and clean as a 5 and 8 year old can!

I was asked by Wet Ones® Hand Wipes to create some fun ways to get kids to keep their hands clean with brand new Specially Marked Wet Ones® canisters and travel packs.

Keep your eye out for how to win a trip to Universal Orlando Resort™ on these Specially Marked Wet Ones® Hand Wipes products, which are based on two of Universal Orlando Resort’s hit attractions – Shrek 4D and Transformers™: The Ride-3D.

lunch box notes for healthy school year with Wet Ones® hand wipes

When the doorbell rang the other day with my samples of the new Specially Marked Wet Ones® canister and travel packs, I had a trio of curious and fascinated spectators.

Would hand wipes with familiar characters make them more willing to clean their messy hands? I would think so! With a new school year upon us, I wanted to keep them healthy, happy and learning away at school instead of sniffing and sneezing on my couch! And their teacher too!!

DIY Reusable Chalkboard Sign for First and Last Days of School

INSIDE: How to make a reusable chalkboard sign for the first and last days of school.

Make a DIY reusable chalkboard for first day and last day of school | Dazzle While Frazzled.comHow do you mark the first day of a whole new school year? Or the last day of school before everyone is home…all day for the next two months?!

The morning I sent my little girl off to kindergarten, I cut up a waffle in the shape of a K. One year gone too quickly, I found myself shaping a waffle into a 1. Before I knew it, I was doing my best to form a 2 out of a frozen waffle. (Apparently, having a number shaped waffle has become our First Day of School tradition.)


The school bound child is then told to pose with a DIY reusable chalkboard sign. They balk but I convince them someday their children will want to see these photos. Eye roll. Sigh. Smile. Ten months later, I make them repeat this school milestone photo session on their Last Day of School.

Here’s how to make your own chalkboard school sign to make your own kids pose, smile…and balk at a motherly requests!

As a mom, we tend to pack with love. We lug around huge purses packed with on-the-go snacks, bandages, random small toys, and whatever stray crayons we pick off the floors of our often disastrous cars.

Easy School Teacher Gift and Thank You Note Idea

DIY School Teacher Appreciation Coffee Mug Gift and Thank You Note Idea | Dazzle While Frazzled.comSo, I’m big on thank you notes. Does that make me old school? My mom would make us write thank you notes before we could play with the gift. Painful as a kid but the habit has stuck.

Fast forward a handful of years later and I find myself arm twisting my own daughter to write a sweet and short note to her 2nd grade teacher as we quickly wrap up the school year.


An appreciative note is a “latte” better in a DIY school teacher coffee mug, don’t you think?

Make Easy Picture Frames From Old School Papers

INSIDE: How to use old school papers to make DIY photo frames for lifelong memories.

Turn old report cards into photo framesMy mother-in-law has been stopping by recently and dropping off some of my husband’s 40-year-old things. We’ve inherited old yearbooks, the leather folder his college degree came in, a collection of old toys and a rather large manila folder of his elementary school report cards. Oldies but goodies?!

Some of the items have been easier to slip into the recycle bin than others! But I did hold onto his old report cards. I had an idea on how to re-purpose them into a craft for our children and keep these old school memories…
