ST PATRICKS DAY

Rainbow Color Hunt

It’s a situation I’ve been in before… I was hoping to spend a nice, quiet Saturday morning tidying up around the house when, as usual, my children had other plans. As soon as their tiny feet hit the floor they started conspiring against me by murmuring words like “PlayDoh”, “painting”, and […]

ST PATRICKS DAY

Rainbow Swirl Cupcakes

I’m going to let you in on one of my biggest insecurities… I am terrible in the kitchen. TERRIBLE. I can manage a few of the classics:  cereal, waffles, and peanut butter sandwiches, but other than that, I have no skills. My son recently asked if we could make “rainbow […]

ST PATRICKS DAY

St. Paddy’s Day Lucky Tags

I was going through my son’s backpack last night when I discovered that, once again, it’s our family’s turn to bring snacks in for Preschool. Don’t read that the wrong way – I love bringing in snacks for Preschool! My son is a bit of a picky eater so I use this […]

ST PATRICKS DAY

Pot of Gold Necklace

I love Saint Patrick’s day. L-O-V-E. Maybe it’s because my grandma is 100% Irish, or maybe it’s because I love bright colors and gold glitter. Either way – I love it. So I tend to go a bit overboard with activities and art projects around this big, green holiday! I found this genius […]

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 […]

Witch Handprint Craftivity

I love making projects with my little ones that combine holidays and their handprints. Not only are they cute, but they make the perfect keepsakes! For Halloween this year, we decided to try a handprint witch. There are so many variations you can try – for example, you can let […]

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 […]

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day!

Happy Talk Like a Pirate Day! Arrgh, you ready to celebrate? Last year we celebrated with a Pirate Themed Bath Hunt (click here for more details), but now that my children are a little older, I wanted to expand our festivities. (My affiliate links are in this post. As always, thanks […]

Swimming Instructor Gift (Printable!)

(This post contains my affiliate links.) Our family just finished swimming lessons for the summer. It’s been two weeks of splashes, giggles, and sun. I had a great time with my children and wanted to thank our swimming instructors. So I created these two gift tags to attach to Lifesavers and […]

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 […]
