Isn’t the birth of your country just grand? I mean, you get a day off work in one of the sunniest months of the year, and you have an awesome excuse to colour co-ordinate everything!

A very happy 4th of July to you my American friends!
And in case you missed it, don’t forget you can download and print these bad boys for some extra patriotic fun!

On a side note, I’m off to take an intense one week course as part of my post-degree special ed program, so I’m having to bid adieu for a week.
While I’ll have my nose buried in multiple books, or rather computer screens as my course is on assistive technologies (I get to build a website – YESSSS A+!), I have left you in very very good hands. Be sure to come every day next week for some fantastic guest posts by some incredible ladies! I can’t wait for you to see what they have in store!

DIY/Printables | Canada Day Sparkler and Candy Cone Free Printables

Time to get out your red and white, Canada day is near!
So often I find fantastic printables for the 4th of July that I admire but just can’t use. When I hopped on Confetti Sunshine and saw Sara’s sparkler holders, I knew I had to make a Canadian version. Sparkle on Canada! I don’t know about you but I’ll definitely be lighting up these bad boys Tuesday night (yes, Tuesday night, start planning!).
When browsing the dollar for sparklers I saw a bag of twizzlers. My thought? “They’re red, so obviously they’re Canada day appropriate.” So I also created a “Happy Canada Day” printable cone for you to fill with treats. Yummers.
