It’s almost summer and what better way to celebrate than to bring a little bit of the season indoors? We recently updated the look of our fireplace mantle to give it a coastal look and I wanted to add a little more of that decor to my living room.
Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday for kids because they bring home a ton of “mail.” My daughter loves to hand out her Valentine’s cards and especially likes to receive them. It’s funny how when you’re little “mail” is a good thing. As adults we get excited if our mailbox is empty!
Each year I post about homemade tree ornaments; check out some from year’s past like the Santa Hand and Reindeer Hand Ornaments or the Cookie Cutter Ornaments. You’ll love this year’s creations because they’re easy and a toddler or elementary aged child can do them.
If you’re looking for some quick and fun Thanksgiving crafts for your kids, I have two you may like. Not only are they great for any age, but they are ones the whole family can enjoy together.
Fall lovers rejoice! It is our favorite time of year and we can now scream it from the rooftops. The crafts I picked this year are easy enough for preschoolers, but younger school-aged children would enjoy them, too. They just won’t need as much assistance.
This craft project came about after my family and I previewed a new children’s show on Amazon Kids called Niko and the Sword of Light. My daughter loved the headpiece one of the main characters, Princess Lyra wears, but I didn’t have anything similar in my craft box. So, we whipped up something else princess-y instead.
I’m a sucker for a holiday craft. I love to create grownup DIYs and love to help my kids. We are all super excited for the 4th of July. Mostly because there’s lots of eating, swimming and chatting. It’s always a good time.
Usually, I like to come up with my own creations, but this year I’m too busy to bother because baby #4 will be here in 22 days and there is just so much to be done. If you’re in a similar boat, fear not, I found some super cute craft ideas on Pinterest that your kids will enjoy making and very little supplies are needed.
While it’s fun to decorate Easter eggs the traditional way using food coloring, bowls and spoons, my kids also really enjoy trying out new designs. Check out some of the ideas we’ve done in year’s past.
While they’ve been around for what seems like forever, essential oils have become an integral part of many households in recent years. People use them for different purposes- from aromatherapy to cleaning. Absolutely chemical-free, extracts from nature, essential oils are pet and baby-friendly.
Of all of the dress-up costumes we have, my daughter favorites the princess gowns. We have a few tiaras, but her brothers always manage to break them or they get lost. Since I don’t like to re-buy items my kids are rough with, I got an idea to make a different type of crown with my daughter.
