    Thank you SO much! I just bought those boxes this past weekend!

  9. Amber Unger says:

    No joke… I was at the Dollar Tree this evening and I saw those Valetine Day boxes. I wanted to buy them, but I thought that I shouldn't unless I had an idea already in mind. Thanks for giving me a good reason to go back and get them! 🙂

  10. I LOVE all of this…of course! You are amazing!

    We did some fun activities with blends. We made smoothies with blend foods and then the kiddos made their own blenders that are just presh! I would love for you to come visit and check it out!

    Thanks for the freebies. They are so appreciated! We also just started ch. 12, so this is perfect!

  16. Tania Knapp says:

    If you have a Michael's or AC Moore… they are in the baking section…close to the baby shower stuff 🙂

  17. Thanks for sharing these fun activities! BTW LOVE Hunger Games! I've read all three books, I couldn't put them down until I finished all three.

  18. Veronica says:

    I used my boxes for contractions. I numbered the boxes and put cut up contractions in them. On a master sheet, numbered to match the hearts, I listed the original 2 words to be made into a contraction. They record the contraction they made on a sheet with hearts. To use your cute sheet without the boxes, I'd use the hearts from a deck of cards (at least for low numbers). Pick a card or add 2 cards to get a number for the center and then carry out the rest of your idea.

  19. Traci says:

    I love those Be Mine Boxes.

    And your Sealed with a Kiss activity is adorable.

    Thanks for sharing!

    I have the mystery box activity on my wish list-now I can get it!! I grabbed all of your freebies! Thanks a bunch! You are amazing! Just started following your blog! I pinned these activities on Pinterest.

  23. I just want to bottle up your creativity. You rock!

    Love the sealed with a kiss, but I'm not going to lie…those lip clips are a bit freaky. 😛

    I'm on the hunt for large heart doilies. Looks like I'll be trekking to to the Dollar Tree.

  36. We use the heart boxes for a word scramble, (kind of like Cara), but we put valentine-y words in our boxes. We shared a freebie of the game if you want:

  38. I love The Hunger Games! I'm even having a Hunger Games themed b-day party this year just because I am also obsessed and because I can…hehe 🙂 Your activities are adorable as usual 🙂 I got the pink mystery box from Target too! My kiddos just laughed and said of course it had to be pink for Mrs. Lizak! Have a great rest of your day my friend!

  42. Thanks for the heart box head's up (I ran out immediately and bought up all I could find!) and the freebie! My Dollar Store had camo eggs that I just KNEW had to be dino eggs– so I made a recording sheet like Cara's for the dino eggs, too! The same one had car "eggs" too. I snatched up a whole bunch of those. Imagine the possibilities. For my money unit, I'm thinking it needs to contain coins to find the amount. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the inspiration.

    Thank you for being awesome, and sharing all your lovely ideas!!!!

  47. Hi, Abby!
    I just wanted to let you know I found your same exact brown cardboard mystery box at Hobby Lobby for $0.99!! I found it in the gift section and was so excited!! If you don't have a Hobby Lobby near you, you can purchase decorated gable boxes from their website. I hope this helps seem they seem to be challenging to track down!

    🙂 Alex
