Great Travel Snack For Kids – Bite Sized Sandwich Crackers

Here is a great way to make your own “Lunchables” style sandwich crackers for your kiddos.  They are quick and easy and a great option if you are traveling with your kids.  Cut your favorite meats and cheeses into bite sized shapes and pair them with some bite sized pretzel crackers for a tasty snack or filling lunch on the go. Since the first time my son had a Lunchable in his hands it was pure love.  Not sure what the obsession is, but he loves them with all his little 5 year old heart.  It must just be the fun of making the little sammies just the way he wants them.  If...

Matching Appliqued Rock Star Shirt And Onesie For Big And Baby Brother

Appliqued shirts make great customized gifts for kids.  They are easy and inexpensive to create and are one of a kind gifts to give for any occasion.  When a close friend was expecting her second little rock star of a boy I decided to create some matching rock themed shirts for the new baby and the new big brother to be. What to do when a cute little guy like this is about to welcome a brand new baby brother into the world?  Make a shirt to give him and one for his new baby brother too.  I love to create one of a kind onesies as baby gifts and I also love to include older siblings in the...

Make Your Own Magnetic Recipe Holder

I spend a lot of time in the Kitchen and this is one of my all time favorite pieces of kitchen decor.  This DIY recipe holder is as functional as it is beautiful.  Using an old picture frame, scrapbook paper, and sheet metal I put together a recipe holder to match our kitchen decor.  These are quick and easy to make and make fabulous gifts for any occasion. There is just so much that I love about these recipe holders that I don’t know where to start.  I made one for my own kitchen and then managed to use every random frame in our house to make more for friends, family, and other...

This is one of those things that seems so simple and obvious, but you may never think to let your kids do.  The instant I found out you could write on windows with dry erase markers I thought, why didn’t I think of this sooner.  I realized this about a year and a half ago and the kids have not stopped enjoying it...
