EASTER

Jelly Bean Bracelets

With St. Patrick’s Day and Easter being so close together this year I didn’t have much time to plan Easter activities. (Insert the feeling of failure and a touch of mommy guilt.) This week I’ve been racking my brain for some quick and easy craftivities for my little ones. I didn’t […]

Frankenstein Sun Catchers

These Frankenstein Sun Catchers crack me up! If you drive by our house they’re the first thing you see – and we’ve been getting quite a few compliments on them (from our neighbors, walkers, even the mail lady!). If you have little ones and want to spark their creativity, these are the […]

Valentine’s Day Glasses + Card (Freebie!)

We recently learned my son needs to wear glasses. And while he’s doing a great job wearing his new frames – he’s feeling a little self conscious. Since Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching, I thought it might be fun for him to make a pair of glasses for all of his classmates as part of […]

Valentine’s Day Sun Catchers

My son currently loves the Charlie Brown Valentine’s Day movie. And since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, he asked if we could decorate “every single room and wall” for Valentine’s Day. That seemed a bit ambitious, so I asked if he’d settle for a Valentine’s Day sun catcher for our window – thankfully, he […]

Mail a Birthday Garland!

My Mother-in-Law’s birthday is fast approaching. Since we live in different states, I wanted to mail her something special to help her count down to her big day. With a little help from my toddler, we made her a birthday countdown garland! (You can get detailed instructions on this project and print my […]

A Year of Dates

I love spending time with my children. And I often have a lot of “Mommy guilt” for not giving them my undivided attention. Between housework, cell phones, work, meal preparation, and social responsibilities, I struggle to find time when I can give each child my complete, undivided attention. To help set aside this […]
