Free Printable Taco Truck for Your Elf on the Shelf

Happy Taco Tuesday party peeps! We’re back with another adorable free printable for your elf on the shelf. Buddy the Elf’s favorite food includes a long line of sugar filled treats. Mine is tacos (or donuts 🍩 but more on that later 😉) so I created this North Pole Taco Truck to celebrate my love of all things south of the border. 

Free Printable Elf on the Shelf - Taco Truck

My besties babies are super picky eaters so we created this hoping that they’d at least try a taco since they were delivered all the way from the North Pole. All you need is a color printer, heavy card stock, scissors and some glue to create this adorable Elf Taco Truck. 

Elf on the Shelf Taco Truck

This free elf on the shelf printable also comes with a cute taco shaped sandwich board sign for your elf to wear and a Taco Tuesday sign.  You can attached the sign to a lollipop stick, paper straw or attach directly to the north pole taco truck.

Elf on the Shelf North Pole Breakfast

Our Elf on the Shelf will be returning in the next couple of days and my kids are over the moon with excitement.  They even dragged all the Christmas stuff up two weeks ago hoping he would return early.  I had to explain that Chippy was probably pretty busy putting the finishing touches on our 2014 North Pole Breakfast. To help the little guy out I created another free printable set for our annual Elf on the Shelf North Pole Breakfast.

Free Printable Halloween Banner

Halloween is just around the corner and after putting up my Halloween decorations I realized they needed a little refreshing.  I created this adorable free printable Halloween banner to add a little pop to my mantel.  I love the classic black and orange colors with the fun polka dot pattern, it is the prefect compliment to our Halloween Decorations.

Party Planning Checklist :: FREE Printable Party Planner

I am so excited to share another wonderful free printable that I have been using myself for the past couple of years.   I created this free party planning checklist to make sure I never forgot a single detail when hosting my kids birthday parties. Party planning doesn’t happen overnight.  The best way to ensure a successful party is to plan for one!!

Free Party Planning Checklist | 505-design.com

It’s no big secret that I love a good checklist and this free printable party planner will be your go-to guide for your little ones next birthday party. Whether you start planning a year or weeks in advance, start jotting down a few of the important pieces of the party puzzle. Will there be a theme? How many invitations do I need? What date should we pick? What type of food should we serve? What activities or games should the kids play?

After you figure out the party basics – Event, Party Theme, Date – move on to the guest list. For my little guy we still do a big close friends and family party. Between kids and adults it tends to be around 40+ people. I like to keep the kids/adult guest list separate for two reasons:
1. It helps to account for how much food I need and
2. So I know how many kids I need to purchase party favors for.

Tally up the number of invitations you will need to send and start shopping for the perfect invitation. I may or may not know of a super awesome place to shop for cute kids invitations…. 505 Design, Inc on Etsy!!

505 Design, Inc - Kids Party Invitations

The best part of our Free Party Planning Checklist is that the files are editable in Adobe Reader.  You can type in all your information and save the file to your computer or print off the blank party planning checklist and fill it in yourself as you go.

Use this list as your go-to guide the day of the event to ensure all the food out, activities are in order and favor bags are accounted for.

I hope you enjoy using it as much as I do!

Printable Valentine Tags : : Free Printable

I finished up my kids Valentine’s Day treats, completely last minute per usual.  Although they were not happy I forced them to choose only one thing to hand out this year.  Both of them had specific requests when designing there Valentine tags. I wanted to use “I’m a Sucker for you Valentine” for both kids but my daughter wanted nothing to do with that.  She requested pink, purple and girly. Done and done!

Here are the Valentine tags I created for my sons class – red, teal, black and gray. You can edit the name portion using Adobe Reader or leave them blank and let your child squeeze in there name.

2014 Calendar :: Free Download

Slightly behind getting the free 2014 editable calendar up this year. We have been digging ourselves out of a “Polar Vortex” full of 18″ of snow and sub zero temperatures. I loved the extra time I was able to spend with my little ones but it’s nice to get back to work.

Anyways back to the reason you’re here, our free 2014 Calendar. Some of you may have noticed the 2013-2014 school year calendar I posted back in September. My original plan was to extend that version into a full 2014 calendar, but that would be way too easy. Soooo, I ditched the old design for the most amazing calendar yet. I am in LOVE with this calendar! It is so bright and cheery, plus it includes one of my favorite trends right now – confetti.

Elf on the Shelf North Pole Breakfast – 2013

Christmas is right around the corner, can you believe it?  This Saturday our elf on the shelf Chippy finally came back and brought a fabulous “candy breakfast” for my two little sweeties.  Normally, Chippy and me have all our shit together.   This year we are a hot mess.  After searching the basement for 3 hours I found our elf on the shelf hiding in a Christmas Cookie tin.  Exactly where I would hide if I wanted to stay near the Christmas stuff  but in a place where no child dare look…if I was a magical elf of course.   Once Chippy was found (1 AM) it was time to create a magical North Pole Breakfast.  I whipped up a printable sign and letter using elements from an old Christmas design (it’s now pushing 2AM).  The super awesome breakfast consisted of powder sugar doughnuts, peeps on a pretty red and white lollipop stick, Hershey kisses,  candy canes, hot chocolate and milk in a fancy bottle dipped in sugar (hallelujah it’s 3am, and I am finally done!). Ooops, Chippy forgot to get the kids a gift.   Everyone was up early (of coarse they were) and super excited to see that there friendly elf on the shelf had indeed not forgot them this holiday season.

With all of the madness, scrambling around and lack of gifts my kids both thought this was the “best breakfast Chippy has ever brought us”.  Seriously? I almost feel foolish for the hours I spent last year getting everything together.  All they really wanted was powder doughnuts, who knew.

2013-2014 School Year Printable Calendar :: Free Download

School is back in session and my mind is filled with a million things to remember – times two.  Last year I drove myself crazy trying to keep a handle on which days to return library books, pack gym shoes, turn in homework, pack a lunch or buy lunch, bagel day, half days or early dismissals – it was all too intense. When I inevitably forgot something – which I did several times – my Type A personality had a near melt down.  After months of going off the deep end we installed a school drop zone in the den (more on that later).   The most crucial part of our Kiddie Command Center is my beloved calendar, this beauty keeps me on track like nobodies business.

Editable School Calendar by 505-design.com

In a nut shell here is how I organize our printable calendar.

1. I use the initials of each child to determine which kiddo has something to do on any given day.

2. I write all important dates for the whole year – school breaks, half days and so forth.  Both of my kids teachers happen to give us a sheet at the beginning of the year – super helpful for this OCD mom.

3. Every month I sit down and fill out school specials (which change quarterly for my oldest), hot lunch schedule, snack days for my little guy, the dates and times of any sports they are playing and so on.

4. I print it out and post it on the cork board – any birthday invites or schedule changes are written in by hand.

The editable calendar is honestly a lifesaver for keeping me on track of multiple schedules.  I hope you find it just as useful.

Countdown to Disney Calendar

We’re going to Disney!!!! My kids are over the moon with excitement (I am too) and have been asking non stop everyday, “When are we leaving”, “How long til we go”, “Can we go tomorrow…I’m bored”. Instead of checking my calendar and counting the days with them I decided to create this fun and colorful countdown to disney calendar.  My design inspiration came from the bright colors of the new Disney Art of Animation hotel that opened last year at Disney World.  The printable file includes the Countdown to Disney page along with the numbers 1-31 plus a mickey graphic for the day that you leave.  I also created a Disneyland printable for all of the west coast travelers.

Countdown to Disney Calendar | 505-design.com

Our Countdown to Disney Calendar is displayed on the cork board in our kitchen so the kiddies can see it every single day.  I placed the countdown sheet in a page protector and I use sticky tack to attach the number to the sheet. The cut out numbers in a goody bag that I cut down to size.
