Silly St. Patrick’s Day Photo Props

Silly St. Patrick’s Day Photo Props by Erin of Strawberry Mommycakes for I Heart Naptime.

Silly St. Patrick's Day Photo Props Free Printables!

Hello all! I’m so excited to be back at I Heart Naptime with these Silly St. Patrick’s Day Photo Props! I have been taking it easy enjoying my new bundle of joy (you have to go see the pictures…he’s adorable), so my holidays are a little more low key this year. Photo props are so fun and the kids always love them, plus they’re super easy to make! All you have to do is print, cut and glue!

I made these photo props extra cute by decorating the wooden dowels I glued onto them. It took me just a couple minutes longer, but I think it makes a HUGE difference.

Silly St. Patrick's Day Photo Props Free Printables!

To make these, you’ll need:

  • My FREE Printables, for personal use only
  • Card Stock
  • 3-12″ Wooden Dowels (mine are 3/16″ in diameter)
  • Tape
  • Green Acrylic Paint
  • Glitter Washi Tape
  • Hot Glue Gun

  1. First, download the free printables. Print and cut them out and then set aside.
  2. To decorate the wooden dowel, first tape off sections you don’t want painted. I couldn’t find my masking tape, so I used regular scotch tape wrapped around a couple times and it worked great!
  3. Paint the dowel, then let it dry. I set mine on a small bowl so it was resting on the taped parts.
  4. Once the paint is completely dry, wrap the washi tape around the dowels.
  5. Glue the dowel to the back of the printable (in the middle for the shamrock and mouth and to the side for the hat).

I’m pretty sure the most exciting thing I’ll be doing for St. Patrick’s Day this year will be to wear green…but as long as I’m not wearing yoga pants, I call it a win! Actually, wearing green yoga pants would be a total win. How will you be celebrating this year?

I think we all know someone in our lives who is going through a tough time. Someone who may have lost a loved one, someone who lost their job, someone who is going through a divorce, someone who is struggling with a child, someone with infertility …or maybe someone who is just dealing with the day to day trials life can sometimes bring. If you’re looking for a way to show you care but live far away, or are just not quite sure what to do … send a box full of sunshine! It will make their day!

I remember first seeing this idea when my Uncle passed away a couple of years ago. Someone had made my Grandma a pot of sunshine and painted it yellow. They filled it with all kinds of happy and yellow things. I thought this was such a sweet idea. Then after going through my loss last summer I received a box full of sunshine from my dear friend Tiffany. It totally brightened my day and was honestly just what I needed.

Since I loved this idea so much, I thought I’d share it with all of you and include some free printables, so you can send your own boxes of sunshine!

  • yellow confetti
  • chapstick
  • nail polish
  • candle
  • lemon sugar scrub
  • lotion or soap
  • starburst

  • gum
  • peanut m&m’s

Easy Pizza Pinwheels

Easy Pizza Pinwheels by Yellow Bliss Road for I Heart Nap Time.

I’m Kristin, back again with a fun and delicious snack idea. These Pizza Pinwheels are super easy to make, can be adapted to be kids or adult friendly and make a great after school snack, or even a light meal.

Easy Pizza Pinwheels on iheartnaptime.com

When it comes to my kids, when they’re hungry, they want something good and something fast. These little roll ups are made with Pillsbury Crescent Dough (or refrigerated pizza dough) and can be made with jarred pizza sauce or if you have a little more time, my homemade marinara sauce. They take just a few minutes to prepare and they bake in just about 12 minutes.

Of course they’re not just kid-friendly, they’re a perfect appetizer for grown-ups too. Instead of pepperoni, add some chicken, diced peppers, onions, mushrooms or any other specialty ingredients you like.

To make them, you’ll need to flatten out the dough. You can use refrigerated crescents or pizza dough; they both come out to roughly the same size. Be sure to flour the surface first to avoid sticking.

Spread on the sauce and add some toppings. Each roll makes about a dozen pinwheels, and you can divide the toppings to get more variety. If you’re using crescents, you’ll want to make sure you press the seems together.

The next step is probably the hardest, but the great thing about these roll-ups is that they are very forgiving as they bake even if they look sloppy after you roll them up.

You’ll need to roll them lengthwise; I usually start by folding the edge and then continue the rolling motion, doing just a little bit at a time to keep the filling from falling out.

One tip I got from a reader who tried my Jalapeno Bacon & Cheddar Pinwheels was to freeze the roll for 10-15 minutes before slicing to preserve their shape. I thought that was a great idea if you have the time.

Aren’t they pretty? They definitely look impressive and no one will no how easy they were unless you tell them.

My family loved these! In fact, we loved them so much that I decided to try a BBQ Chicken Pizza version.

Easy Pizza Pinwheels on iheartnaptime.com

Yield: About 12 pieces

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

1 can Refrigerated Crescents (or Pizza Dough)
1/4 cup pizza sauce or marinara
3/4 cup shredded Mozzarella Cheese
Pizza toppings of your choice

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover a cookie sheet with foil and spray lightly with cooking spray.
Lightly flour a large wooden cutting board. Roll out dough onto the floured surface, pressing seems together as you go.
Spread pizza sauce evenly over the dough, to the edges.
Top with shredded Mozzarella and your choice of pizza toppings.
Roll pizza width-wise (the longest side) and seal the and slice into 1 inch pieces.
Place pinwheels on the prepared cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 9-11 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
Allow to cool for a couple of minutes then serve with marinara or ranch for dipping.

For larger pinwheels, roll lengthwise (the shortest side). You'll want to make sure the fillings are the same for the whole pizza if you choose this method.

These 4-ingredient pizza roll ups come together so easy and are loved by all! Perfect for a quick dinner or snack.
