Make a Cootie Catcher!

Talk about nostalgia.  Make a cootie catcher with your kids this holiday break and travel back in time to your middle school choir class where no one was listening (after all–the teacher spent all his time working with the soprano section and you were an alto) but instead, busying themselves planning the course their lives...

Grocery Store Scavenger Hunt

You know how you’re spending a lot of time in the grocery store this month?  And there’s sure to be more last minute trips to pick up one more 12 pack, just a few more dozen eggs for that big Christmas morning breakfast, some more mixed nuts, a bag of powdered sugar to make some more frosting, and the list goes on.  I know in my house...

DIY Educational Jenga

I think it’s safe to say that many homes have a Jenga game laying around……and I’d guess……collecting dust.  My daughter is just starting to be really interested in playing games but I’ve found that they don’t necessarily hold her attention for a very long time unless she’s also required to do...

Toy Organization: Canvas Bags and Photo Labels

I’ve been purging. Yes, recently I was that mean mom who raked through the playroom while the kids were sleeping and filled up two donation boxes of toys and sent them away never to be seen again. So far, no one (meaning the four-year-old) has noticed that anything is missing. But, we still had a ridiculous toy organization...

Washi Tape Envelope DIY

I spent a summer as a camp counselor in college and we used to make custom envelopes out of magazine pages any chance we got.  It was ‘back-in-the-day’ when people still sent mail.  And believe me…..getting mail at lunch-time when you’re a camp counselor is like winning the lottery–especially when...

I’m going to go ahead and call it.  This is my favorite DIY to date. A.  I love fall decorations. B.  I love cheap DIY’s. C.  I love DIY’s that I actually want in my house long-term. This one fits the bill in all three categories. Here’s what you need: I had some leftover black...

My 15-month-old daughter’s hair is growing like mad….along with her collection of hair clips and barrettes. I was in need of a little beautiful organizational magic but didn’t want to spend a lot of money….so I came up with this little DIY barrette board. The supplies cost about $12...

I’ve determined that you can make anything cuter with craft pom pom’s.  The plastic headbands with the little comby grips on the inside  just started to fit my daughter so we’ve been playing around with them a little bit.  The cheap ones–that I’ll buy until I determine if she really likes...

A Healthier {and cute!} School Birthday Treat

I consider this bumblebee birthday treat to be my first mom triumph of the school year. This is my son’s second year in preschool and with an early September birthday, I felt a little rushed and a little bit apprehensive about him having “the first birthday” of the year. Also, his school really frowns on super...
