I’m someone who believes kids of any age can make gifts for their parents. This quick craft will have little ones as young as three making Mother’s Day Foot Soaks for moms, grandmothers, and caregivers! Mother’s Day is right around the corner – it is May 10, 2015. Do you have plans? A question for […]
Q is for quilt, our newest letter Q craft! My 3 year old little girl made her own quilt. With parental supervision, it was a great after lunch activity that kept her focused and helped reinforce our learning activity. Even if there is no sewing machine in the house, you can whip up this letter Q […]
When the gray of winter starts to take a toll, it’s easy to add a bit of colorful art (and flavor) back into the day. Chase the gray away with these watercolor cookies decorated by the kids! The beginning of February usually has Seattlites booking last-minute trips to sunny destinations to soak up even a […]
Handmade Crayons The little one wanted to make something for a 3 year old friend’s birthday, so we whipped up some handmade crayons and a gift tag to accompany them. Learn from our mistakes – join us for a quick recap and a laugh.

Here’s a recap of Halloween at our house this year. My, my, how things have changed with the addition of a munchkin. Did The Parents Dress Up? Nope. It’s not because we think we’re too cool for school (but of course, we are), it’s just that we just couldn’t muster it this year. Which is […]

After having seen all kinds of Halloween stuff popping up all over the net however, I’ve decided to finally share this fun and […]
