Lazy Girl’s Garlic Pizza Sticks – Using Leftover Calzones

If there is one that we all love in our house it is pizza.  Unfortunately pizza leftovers never go over all that well.  After finding a fabulous pizza dough recipe, and perfecting my homemade calzones, I came up with a way to use leftovers that is easy and AMAZING.  These Garlic Butter Pizza Sticks are now a family favorite and make a great side with any pasta dinner. We have some form of pizza night at our house once a week.  The kids favorite is pizza cutouts and my husband and I love calzones.  I make calzones often, but we always end up with uneaten calzones as leftovers.  And why...

Make Gift Wrapping Paper – Fun For Kids

As a stay at home Mom I have learned to turn simple tasks into fun activities for the kids.  Turn wrapping a present into the most fun that your kids have ever had with paint using newspaper and finger paints.  Not only will the kids love every second of it, but the gift will be wrapped in one of a kind paper decorated with tiny hand prints and love from your kiddos. A couple of years ago the kids and I were preparing for my husband’s birthday.  We had excitedly saved up some money and bought him a comfy living room chair that he had been wanting.  We took the trip to the store and...

Mothers day is a great opportunity to have the kids make something extra special for their Grandmothers.  Take pet rocks to a whole new level and let your kids create simply adorable garden or flower pot decorations with their beloved Grandmother in mind.  This is the perfect gift for Grandma that will remind her how much she is loved each time she sees them. I love the idea of having the kids make something special for their Grandmas on Mothers Day.  Mothers day, for me, surely isn’t about getting gifts or taking the day “off” from my mom duties.  It is just another...

Simple Easter Bunny Craft For Kids

Easter is just around the corner, and I’m sure my kids aren’t the only ones getting excited to celebrate.  Here are two simple Easter bunny crafts that you can do with your kiddos using supplies that you probably already have around the house!  These cute bunnies are not only fun to make but a blast for the kids to play with when they are done. My little man is home on spring break this week and I am absolutely loving it.  Sleeping in and snuggles in the  morning instead of the normal get up and rush to get where we all need to be.  Usually by this time we have already done...

Getting Your Kids Involved In The Garden

Growing your own food has not only nutritional benefits for your family, but a pleathera of life lessons, and amazement for young children.  Planting our own seeds and growing a garden is a family affair.  It provides us with wonderful healthy produce all summer long, as well as enough to can for the winter.  The kids benefit in so many ways from being a part of the gardening process from start to finish. When our first baby arrived, I began to look at how our family eat very differently.  It was never really something that I thought that much about until I had a precious little life that...
