Free Printable Brave Party Kit

Our first printable was such a hit and I was so happy to have inspired you all to try a Frozen party for your little ones. I decided to pass on another free printable. Brave. I hope this party kit inspires you to get creative and throw your childs dream Brave party. I just ask that you take lots of pictures and share your ideas with other mommas to help inspire them with their party too.  Email me your pictures at I will try and post them with any other detail you would like to share. 

Here it is! Just right click and print from your home printer or Kinkos print shop. (I recommend printing on white card stock.) Then cut and assemble. It's so easy!

These are great for dressing up party favors in a simple ziplock baggie. Just stuff a baggie with whatever goodies you want to gift and fold over the bag tag and secure with staples. 
This 2" circle or square can be used for lots of things. Attatch it to a toothpick with clear tape and use it as a cupcake topper. Punch a hole in the top and string a ribbon through it and attach to your favor bags. Use clear tape and attach to straws for straw tags. Print on sticker paper and stick on your party cups to carry your Brave theme to your drinks.

These are really cool tented cards to carry the theme through to your buffet table or sweets table. Just print, cut and fold. You can label them with whatever creative food item you can come up with.
Thank you cards are so awesome to receive. Your guests will feel so special. These are of course cards that you can send to your guests after the party to thank them for coming and for the gift they brought. These are super easy! Just write a short note and send it as a post card. No need for an envelope.

I am also going to try and gather some more ideas from blog land and create an inspiration board. Do you have any leads? Comment with any favorite ideas you have seen. Let's inspire each other!

Does your child like the Disney movie Brave? How old will they turn? How did you decorate for the party? Do you have any creative ideas that you used that you can share with us?

And don't forget to check out my other party printables in my shop. Thanks for stopping by!

Healthier Chicken Salad on Crackers

This meal is so light and fresh. Perfect for a summer snack or appetizer. 
I had made baked raspberry chipotle chicken a couple days ago.  I hate to waste food and we really love chicken salad sandwiches but, the traditional chicken salad sandwich is a little heavy with all that bread so I opted to use rice crackers instead. It was perfect! So yummy and fresh (of course I used fresh ingredients from my garden).

You can use any baked or grilled chicken (pretty much any spices added will be fine).

You can use any baked or grilled chicken (pretty much any spices added will be fine). 

Pull it out of the refrigerator and cut it in cubes (no need to warm it).

Dice up some onions.

I grabbed some ingredients from the garden (lettuce, tomato and basil).  Feel free to add anything else you might have. Halved grapes, diced apples, crushed pecans, cilantro etc...

Dice everything up and throw it in the bowl.

Add in some mayo. Have you seen this mayo at Costco?

Mix it all up.

Hmmm... something doesn't look right.

Let's add some more tomatoes. There! Much better.

Kid approved.

We all really enjoyed them.

Here are the crackers I used. I found them at Costco.
