Last weekend I shared the post Celebrating the Chinese New Year. While I do not celebrate it on a regular basis, we did enjoy Chinese food and are very excited that it is the Year of the Tiger. (Go Bengals!)
On my Etsy shop Dancing Unicorn by Pam, I have several printable classroom Valentines and treat bag toppers, and will be listing Love Coupons this weekend.

Are you ready for some football? I know I am! I have been a life long Bengals fan, and it is so EXCITING to see them finally going back to the Super Bowl for the first time in 33 years!
33 years is a very long time!
The last time the Bengals went to the Super Bowl, I was a single college student watching the big game in my dorm room with friends. I am now a mother of three adult children, and the age of many grandmothers. Back in the day, I had a huge crush on the quarterback of the Bengals, Boomer Easiason. I even named my cat after him back in 1990. l now have a crush on Joe Burrows. He is the age of my oldest child, but I love how he has lead our team for the worst in the league to the Super Bowl in only two years. So this year, I will definitely be invested in the outcome of the Super Bowl.

Today I am having my first snow day off from school this winter. I live in an area that receives a pretty good amount of snow each year, but this year we have been way under our usual totals . Meanwhile in areas that are south and east of us, have gotten way more than their share.
Based on the national weather map, there are MILLIONS of kids who are celebrating having at least one snow day this week. Ten years ago almost to the day, I shared the Snow Day party that I threw for my kids here on the blog. All of the ideas, and treats are still perfect for today, so I am sharing them again.
In the picture at the top of the page, we built a snowman using styrofoam balls, pipe cleaners, google eyes, and scrap fabric.
My daughter and I made the drinking cups but drawing snowman faces and names on them.
I covered the table with white craft paper and gave the kids cups of crayons to draw winter themed pictures.
We cut up printer paper into several snowflake designs that we could hang up.
We had a create a snowman station out of marshmallows, donuts, pretzels, candy and food writers.
Here is just one of the yummy finished treats.
