meet your neighbors idea {free printable!}

did anyone else move this summer? and have you met all of your neighbors? and i mean ALL of them? we haven’t either. so i  decided to take matters into my crafty little hands and see what i could do about that… i whipped up a cheesy little poem {a great spin off of ‘Roses are Red’, if i do say so myself :} and G-man helped me make a ginormous batch of chocolate chip cookies…..but instead of chocolate chips, we used red and blue M&M’s to go with the poem. G-man, my 2 year old, was the biggest helper. he LOVES cookies!  he did a really good job keeping an eye on them for me…..and tried to sneak one constantly! cute kid. love him!

there is a reason this is not a food blog. i’ll admit, i burnt most of the cookies. ugh. {don’t look too closely, you might see some charcoal. haha jk}

this would also be great to use to meet new people that just moved into your neighborhood, right?

and because i love you guys, you can get your own copy of my cheesy “meet your neighbor” poem to print these tags so you can meet your neighbors too!  i recommend printing them as wallet size images with 9 to a sheet.
