Dollar Store Craft: Four Leaf Button Clovers

Looking for an easy St. Patrick’s Day craft to do with the kids? This cute Four Leaf Button Clovers craft my friend Katie came up with easy and fun to do with the family. You don’t have to be particularly crafty (even I can make this one) or spend a lot of money on supplies to create a little festive holiday decor with your kids to display around the house. Most of the materials used for this craft can be {Read More}

Kids Art Gift Tags + Silhouette Giveaway

I’m super excited to have partnered with Silhouette to bring you this fun kids art gift tags project, as well as a giveaway for a Silhouette Portrait machine! I confess – I’m not the best when it comes to typical mom blog crafts. I can rock it with building materials (like the PVC pipe I used to make Levi a playhouse) or fabric (I recently made Dany some new chew toys by upcycling old tshirts), but paper crafts have never {Read More}

DIY Dog Chew Toy: 10 minute project #TreatThePups

I’m a sponsored blog partner with Lunchbox. As always, all opinions are my own. Our dog Dany is still a puppy, and this will be our first year celebrating the holidays with her. Naturally, the kids want to make it extra special and include her in our fall festivities. This year, Big Heart Pet Brands® is encouraging people to #TreatThePups and has a great page on Walmart with cool crafts and ideas on how to incorporate your pets into your holiday celebrations. {Read More}

Am I getting better at Halloween crafts? #StarburstCandyCorn

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Starburst. I received product samples to facilitate my review and promotional item as a thank you for participating. Two years ago I attempted my last Halloween craft. I tried to make a ghost out of modge podge and Kleenex and a purple plate. Stuff like that reminds me why I’m not a craft blogger. Then I remember how much I absolutely LOVE to get crafty and have fun. Whether {Read More}

Outside the Lines

Disclaimer: I received a sample of Outside the Lines in exchange for a review. All opinions, however, are 100% my own. My kids are pretty darn lucky. They get to spend most of their days coloring, playing, and sleeping. Greg doesn’t really do much in the way of structured play, it’s all fairly creative, come-as-it-goes play. Each day, I have no idea what kind of artwork, projects, or mess I will come home to. It’s our way of parenting–letting the kids {Read More}

Homeschooling: Pre-K Matching Game With Elmers Natural Glue

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Elmer’s. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. My cousin Cheryl has been homeschooling my niece Isabel (pre-K) since they moved here in April. She uses an online curriculum and also makes up her own fun learning activities, like this matching game where Isabel had to try to match the pictures to the letters each item started {Read More}

Easy Stencil Tutorial Using The 3M Mobile Projector

When I first heard about the 3M Mobile Projector, something didn’t quite click in my head. Even though the name clearly says MOBILE, I still thought it would be close to the size of a normal projector. This thing is tiny. That’s your standard iPhone 4 on the left. The projector is the white device on the right. See what I mean? It’s barely bigger than the phone! Plus, it does cool stuff, like projects what’s on your phone screen {Read More}
