Moments Matter: October Photo Prompts for Moms

Pin It
The Moments Matter monthly photo challenge has helped me  to focus more on the little moments in our lives these past few months. I so hopeful that other mommas are benefitting like I am. Often the photo prompts lead me to look for moments that may relate in our day. It's made me much more introspective. If you follow me on Instagram, you can see how it has affected me. Or the prompts can act as ideas for daily activities. That's the beauty of this project... it allows us to focus more intently on ourselves, our family, or just life in general.
 
There are several ways you can join me in this project:
  • Use the photo prompts to capture moments in your day that fit them.  Join me on Instagram and share them or keep them for just you and your family to enjoy.
  • Use the topics to hone your photography skills.
  • You can also use the prompts as inspiration for activities for you to do with your children. 
  • If you can’t participate every day, no worries.  Just post when the prompts speak to you and relate to the moments in your day.
  • Share whatever photos you like with the tag #momentsmatter to share the special moments in your day.
  Here are the photo prompts for this month:
 
 
 
 
Don't forget to use the hashtag #momentsmatter when you share!  See you on Instagram!

Free Halloween Word Search for Kids {free printable}

Pin It
It's the Halloween season! Time to the pumpkin patch, make costumes, and go trick-or-treating. There are so many fun activities for kids during this time of year.  But one of my favorite memories from school is the "downtime" work that we would do. You know... easy things like crosswords and word searches that made me think... but not too hard. So I created this free Halloween word search for kids.
 
 
My son loves to sit and do word searches frequently. I appreciate them because, though they fall under the category of a "worksheet", they are fun for him. And he can use them to fulfill screen-free times. This free Halloween word search can also be used in the classroom as a break from curriculum or as bonus work for students.
 
 
Get the Halloween Word Search Printable here


I'm going to try to get one out a new word search for you every month. Are there any themes you’d like to see? Leave a comment below and let me know! You can also find other free word searches I've created here.
