While we’re waiting for those consistently warmer days ahead, the weather loves to play fickle! One day it’s sunny and 60 degrees, the next day we’re shoveling snow. The unpredictability of the weather can make it difficult to switch your seasonal wardrobe, so we’ve come up with some outfit ideas that can take you from winter to spring with ease. See our winter to spring style inspiration below.

This ice blue shade is all the rage this season, so wear it from winter to spring and get the most out of this trendy piece. In winter, style it with faux leather pants, ankle boots, and a faux fur vest. In spring, pair it with jeans, white sneakers, and a pretty pearl headband.

This feminine floral skirt is a great piece no matter what the weather is. When it’s cold, wear it with a cozy sweater, warm socks, and knee-high boots. When the weather gets nicer, style it with a button down, lacy bralette, and sweet sweater-style mules.

Take your LBD (long black dress) through all the seasons! In winter, pair it with a velvet blazer, velvet mules with jewel accents, and a jeweled belt. In spring, have fun with florals by adding these girly sneakers, a pink jean jacket, and a silky headscarf.

Tweed is super chic right now, and this style is perfect for transitioning from bleak chilly days to breezy mild ones. Wear it with a turtleneck bodysuit, bootcut jeans, and tweed slingback pumps in winter; and with a satin cami, midi slip skirt, and nude slingback pumps in spring.

The leaves are falling, the crisp air has arrived, and the season of goodies is upon us. October through December have multiple holiday events – Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and more, so that means classroom parties, various events, and the creation of goody bags, baskets, and more! Since my youngest daughter’s birthday is in October, I was invited to read a themed book, bring in a snack, and hang out with the class, and I used the opportunity to create pumpkin-themed buckets for her whole class! See our Halloween goody bag inspiration below.

My daughter turned five and is in Pre-K, so I kept it fun but still simple with a pumpkin theme: pumpkin buckets, themed cups, straws, glow sticks, and most importantly, snacks!

The snacks were fun – I found a lot of pumpkin-themed snacks like Entenmann’s pumpkin flavored muffins, gogo squeeze apple pumpkin spice applesauce pouches and decorative fun Skinny Pop popcorn bags.

I kept it pretty simple with Mott’s tots apple juice boxes, but I also ran across Swiss Miss pumpkin spice hot chocolate and just had to add it in. I read the book 10 Little Pumpkins, and the kids were super excited about their snack which was fresh fruit salad in waffle cone bowls topped with a dab of whipped cream – a healthy sundae!

Kristy is room mom for her daughter’s class this year, so of course she got right on her duties of helping to plan the first classroom party planned for October. She went straight to Target’s Hyde & EEK Bootique for plates, napkins, games and more goodies. She’s planning on serving slime punch in cauldrons and using festive food trays for snacks.

“You’ve been Boo’d” – yep that’s right, Kristy created Boo Bags for her kids’ classrooms! She took small clear gift bags and filled them with a bunch of fun little festive toys and a bunch of yummy goodies.

The options are virtually endless with what you can fill them with. Mini play-dohs, bubbles, the classic spider ring and themed pencils. I’m sure no matter what you come up with, the bags will end up being super spook-tacular! Happy Planning!

The anticipation of summer break for students and teachers starts in the month of May, but as June soon comes around so do the end-of-year school party planning! Room parents unite! Themes, games, goodies…nothing is left out during this exciting time of the school year. This event doesn’t have to break the bank either as most things were purchased from the $1.25 store. We’ve got the behind-the-scenes deets on how Kristy and Krista put together their festive and summer fun and circus/carnival end-of-year school parties!

Photo Stations – An easy task with few supplies is all you need no matter your theme! Grab a tri-fold poster board, spray glue a tablecloth to it, then use construction paper to make the arrows and post. If you have a Cricut you can create the beach letters, or purchase sticker lettering – the hanging sun was a dollar store find. Have the students decorate felt frames with stickers or just grab some photo props!

A thick poster board with some decorative items like laminated signs, tinsel foil fringe and photo booth props is how this circus/carnival-themed photo backdrop was created. These photo booths can be used both outdoors and indoors, in case the weather isn’t cooperative.

Activities – Grab canvas tote bags, and again if you have a Cricut you can personalize them with each student’s name, or have the kids decorate them! Students can use fabric pens to sign each other’s bags and bring all of their party stuff home in them – such a creative and fun activity.

Sand art bottles and rock painting are a couple more artistic ways to celebrate the end of another school year. The bottles for the sand art are from the $1.25 store and another parent had some extra sand laying around so they were able to utilize that – look at how cute they turned out! Krista grabbed rocks from her garden and the students painted them, added their initials and year, and could either keep them or hide them around town for their friends to find!

Face painting is ALWAYS a hit no matter what kind of event you’re putting together, so it was an easy decision to add face painter to the lineup for the circus/carnival EOY party! If our readers are located in the South Jersey shore area, Amanda Desouza comes highly recommended! IG: MUABYAD

Games – The F&T fav...the prize punches make more appearances for both of these EOY parties! They are super easy to create and even more fun for the kiddos to play; just fill with fun prizes like temp tattoos, stickers, snap bracelets, and squishy toys and you’re ready to go. Use a disc drop game for some added flair so the kids can punch the cup based on whatever number they landed on!

Think classic games…you can’t have a carnival without ring toss, right, and this large outdoor blow-up ring toss game is the cutest! And who doesn’t love bingo?! Add on a colorful parachute paired with a beach ball, relay races, and water balloon toss using reusable water balloons for some team play, and voila!! These games will never go out of style and are perfect additions to a successful EOY celebration!

Snacks & Treats – Simple and sweet is all that is needed here. Simple is a cute little goody bag with some snacks like sliced fruit, Annie’s GF goldfish {always check for any classroom allergies}, and a juice box or small water. Popcorn is a fan fav, too, especially in those cute little popcorn bags! How sweet are the Ice-Pop filled buckets…all the summer vibes for the kids!

No matter what theme you choose or the size of your class, these EOY parties are always a hit and the kids who have worked hard all school year always have a blast. A big thanks to all of the parents like Kristy and Krista who go above and beyond to create these kinds of memories!
