We are excited to bring you a couple new Holiday crafts this week.  My son is out of school until he starts Kindergarten in Sepetember, so doing crafts is always a joy for us.  It is a great time to sit down with him and spend some one on one time.  Having a little sister now, he doesn’t get as much time with me as he used to. I remember doing paper weave crafts when I was younger, and thought this {Read More}

Father's Day Gift Idea from fivelittlechefs.com #fathersday

I have already told you my girls LOVE planning for holiday’s. The day after Mother’s Day they started planning for Father’s Day! One thing they all decided is that Dad likes gum. He always has a pack in his car, on his dresser and in his church bag. My three year old now shares the love of gum (much to my dismay) and knows where to search to get a piece when she wants one. Dad doesn’t like this so {Read More}

Mother’s Day (Kids) Free Printable

How to make an easy Hummingbird Feeder for kids

How to make a hummingbird feeder from recycled objects

Hummingbirds are so fun to watch. Making your own Hummingbird Feeder is actually a lot easier then I anticipated. It can be done with recycled containers! The next time you or your kids drink anything out of a plastic bottle that has a screw on cap keep it and put it aside for this project. The next time you eat something out of a short squatty plastic container with a lid keep it and put it aside for this project. {Read More}

How To Make A Spaceship from an Egg

Using a large plastic egg, some colored paper, popsicle sticks and glue you can make a spaceship like Meet The Robinsons, Little Einsteins, The Jetsons.

One day while perusing the craft store I discovered a large egg. I thought surely there must be something fun that I can do with this, so I bought it. They come in a few different colors, but I chose the yellow. After some brainstorming I thought what if we made a spaceship. There are many different kinds that have an egg or a dome shape that kids who watch movies are aware of such as Little Einsteins, The Jetsons {Read More}
