Free Printable Back to School Banner

Pennants say "Hit the Books" - love this Free printable Back to School Banner from @PagingSupermom #freeprintables

The transition from lazy summer days back to a strict school schedule can be tough on kids. I like to decorate the house a bit to help the kids get excited for the change.

Love this free and cute Back to School Banner from @PagingSupermom #freeprintables

Before I tell you about our back to school banner, though, I wanted to let you know about a easy opportunity to help out the Adopt a Classroom foundation through Great Clips #GREATLIST program — all you have to do is download a free app!

Great Clips recently launched a super-convenient Online Check-In App that lets you add your name to the waiting list at your local Great Clips salon (with more than 3,300 salons throughout the United States and Canada, there is bound to be one near you). It’s not an appointment — what it does is let you add your name to the list before arriving at the salon to help save you time, and more time definitely comes in handy during the back to school rush.

The best part is when you download the FREE Online Check-In app, Great Clips will donate to the Adopt a Classroom cause. According to AdoptAC, on average teachers spend $1,000 of their own money to make sure their students have the resources they need to learn. Great Clips has pledged up to $20,000 to AdoptAC and every download of the free Online Check-In app helps.

Three Free Printable Banners

Show your #Olympic Pride with this Free Printable Brazil Banner via @PagingSupermom -- free Team USA Banner too!

With the World Cup going on now in Brazil, we wanted to share this free printable Brazil banner.

Free Printable Brazil Banner via @PagingSupermom -- would be great party decor for a Missionary Farewell or Missionary Homecoming or for a #WorldCup Soccer viewing party

Are we big soccer fans? Well, actually no. I’m pretty sure the only soccer games either of us have been to were for one of our kids.

Are we big Brazil fans? Um, no, not really big Brazil fans either, but I created this banner for my sister’s missionary homecoming earlier this year and figured soccer fans could get some extra mileage out of it. Also since we know there’s some debate about whether it’s “Brazil” or “Brasil” we’ve included both S and Z so you can use whichever you prefer.

If you’re with Team USA, of course we’ve got you covered there too — get our free printable USA banner.

Now in case you were interested in seeing some of the fun pictures from my sister’s Missionary Homecoming, I’m happy to share those too! (Don’t know about this whole Mission thing? Find out more.)

Missionary Homecoming Ideas via @PagingSupermom

The whole family was pretty excited to welcome Jenny back from Brazil, and we got together the night before to make a bunch of welcome home signs to hold up at the airport. It was a crazy, messy business using poster markers, glitter and glue with a bunch of kiddos, but it was great. We also made a fun sign for the house — more on that in a minute.

Winter Olympics Craft Idea: Russian Dolls

Our families love the Olympics, and we had a lot of fun with Olympic craft ideas for the London Games. With the Winter Games opening in Sochi tomorrow night we thought we’d share some updates to put a Russian spin on things. Our favorite Olympic craft project from last time was the family Olympic Time Capsule. If your family did a time capsule too, it’s time to dig it out and let the kids see how far they’ve come! (We’d also love to see so share a photo on Instagram and be sure to tag @PagingSupermom and #SupermomMoment.)

Preppy Navy Valentines LOVE Banner

Preppy LOVE Banner free printable at PagingSupermom.com #freeprintables #valentines

You know the whole cliché, “X is the new black?” Of course you do — that’s why it’s a cliché. Seriously though, I recently tried to find black, dress pants for baby Rockwell and everywhere had just navy?! I do like navy, it’s just that he already has a pair of navy pants; regardless, we’ve decided to fully embrace the navy trend with this adorably preppy Valentine’s LOVE Banner.

Frozen Birthday Party Ideas

Frozen Birthday Cake Ideas at PagingSupermom.com #frozen

Okay, I’m not sure, but I think this might be the LONGEST post in the world…. so be warned. When we shared our Tangled Birthday Party we broke it into several posts, but we found that a lot of people who arrived at our posts from the archives or Pinterest missed some of the ideas so we decided to give you all our Birthday Party ideas inspired by Disney’s Frozen Movie in one, massive post. At least there are lots of pretty pictures…

Frozen Birthday Party Invitations at PagingSupermom.com #frozen

Let’s begin with the Frozen Party Invitation because of course you need a cute invite to have a Frozen party right? We created this darling snowflake patterned invitation, and I get cold just looking at it!

I get really excited about little things, like the fact that we cut larger paper snowflakes that looked EXACTLY like the snowflake on the Frozen party invite. Anyone else realize how incredibly awesome that is, or am I just a bit crazy?? Be sure to read our tutorial on how to cut a perfect snowflake to see how to work this magic. Wouldn’t it be fun to tuck a folded up snowflake into the envelope with the party invites?
