Love Bug – Cute Non-Candy Valentine

Earlier in the week I shared a cute kid’s valentine idea, and today I wanted to show you another!  Two kids, two totally different personalities, and two different Valentines to make.  This is a simple print, decorate, and attach a little surprise craft that will be as fun for the kids to put together as it is to give to friends!  With a simple mason jar printable and a happy Valentin’s Day Love Bug message, this is a great little valentine for kids of many ages whether they are boys or girls!  I skimmed through my valentines day Pinterest board and let my kiddos choose...

Homemade Crayon Valentines For Kids

Valentines Day is closing in and I wanted to share what the kids made for their classmates this year for Valentines.  I am a pretty firm believer in giving non-cany valentines, considering the kiddos get plenty of other sweets between Christmas and this time of the year!  Here is a really fun valentine that my son made from start to finish for his friends that is a colorful way to give a surprise without the added sugar.  Homemade crayon rings with swirly colors and a message for friends to have a colorful Valentines day is the perfect sweet, but not TOO sweet gift! This year my 6 year...

Create Santa’s Workshop In Your Living Room – Kid’s Christmas Activity

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all to hear.  The best way to creatively play in December, is to build the  North pole out of boxes with the kids.  This has been one of my children’s all time favorite holiday activities yet.  All you will need are a few random boxes, a role of packaging tape, a little left over wrapping paper and whatever lights and Christmas decor you have left over as well as the imagination of a kid or two.   Create your very own North Pole  playhouse your very own living room!   I added this activity to last year’s...

Elf On The Shelf Goodbye Book For Christmas Day

Well December is here and that means…..our Elf on the shelf is BACK.  Our special  little Elf means exciting, memory filled mornings as the kids wake to see what his daily antics are.   They love him so.   I had to come up with a great way for them to say good bye to him each Christmas until the following year. Last year a special gift appeared all wrapped under the tree on Christmas morning from our friendly little elf.  It was a yearbook of his visits for the year and a goodbye message too including a message about the reason for the season.   The Elf on the Shelf tradition...

Let The Kids Trim A Tree With Glitter Noodles And Feathers

We love spending the weekend after Thanksgiving getting into the Christmas spirit.  In our house, part of that means the kids putting up and decorating their very own little Christmas  tree!  Part of the fun is letting them get creative, crafty, and well…covered in glitter if that’s what it takes to a trim the perfect Christmas tree in their eyes.  Last year we decided to make a craft project out of the decorating process.  We used things that we already had around the house to make some fun glittery decorations to spruce up the holidays.  Each year we do something a little...
