Teacher Sweet Treat Gift Idea
July 31, 2021

The school year is finally over. It's been an interesting year; none of us will ever forget. The kids started out doing homeschooling and finally did in person schooling. It was an adjustment for everyone. I am definitely not cut out for homeschooling; however, I did it. There were lots of tears. And the boys cried too. But I found comfort in knowing that we weren't alone. The teachers have been amazing. They have gone above and beyond. They need a vacation. Feeling a little uneasy during the pandemic, I decided to help out and became a substitute teacher. It is not easy. But it is especially hard doing it through a pandemic. The teachers put their …

Easy DIY Teacher's Appreciation Gift
July 31, 2021

The school year is finally over. It's been an interesting year; none of us will ever forget. The kids started out doing homeschooling and finally did in person schooling. Now it's finally over.

But it is especially hard doing it through a pandemic. The teachers put their lives on the line for the sake of teaching kids. I wanted to make the end of the year teacher's gifts or even for teacher appreciation day. It was probably the most heartfelt gift I've given any teacher. …

How to Make Keepsake DIY Easter Eggs Using 4 Items
March 14, 2021

I recently when to an Easter Egg painting party.  It was fun and entertaining, and the kids had a blast.  Who doesn't like glitter and glue, stickers and dyes?  They really enjoyed it.  What a great tradition! However, I'm all about simplicity and purpose.  I like to do crafts that can be used for the future.  Maybe I'm just secretly trying to get mementos from the kids to save for later.  I'm very sentimental and appreciate it more when they make things I can save.  I'm not up for boiling eggs and making a mess.  The least number of items we use the better.  Plus, I egg salad.  No can do. So, I found some wood eggs at Target and decided to have the boys paint …

15 Seriously Fun DIY Pinatas
March 5, 2021

Kids love pinatas, especially at Birthday parties. We've had them at indoor Birthday Parties and put them up outside in the back yard. We've also had them at park Birthday Parties and hung them on a tree. It doesn't matter where we have them, the kids absolutely love pinatas. We've purchased them and made DIY Pinatas. There are so many ideas on how to decorate a home made pinata. Most of them entail using paper mache and balloons but some can be made out of boxes with crepe paper. The list is endless on how many different kinds of Pinatas one can make, but the kids tend to lean towards Ninja and Unicorn Pinatas and of course pop culture pinatas. The best part? Filling …

I've never been a big St. Patrick day fan. However, I love a fun DIY project and if given the opportunity to make a rainbow, I am definitely more motivated.

I relate Valentine's Day with getting flowers, usually roses. But flowers are not too realistic for kids to give each other. And I'm not sure they would appreciate it like we do.

Non Candy Valentine's Conversation Hearts with Recycled Crayons
January 14, 2021

I'm not sure how long the Valentine's Non Candy Valentine's Conversation Hearts candies have been out.  I've been receiving them since I was a little girl.  I never even liked the taste of them.  They always ended up going to waste. Every year the kids come home with candy for Valentine's Day and every year I take some and dump them.  Don't get me wrong, they get candy.  But we don't need more dentist visits so I'm particular about what they keep.  No chewy candy that can sit in their teeth.  This year I bought tiny dum dum lollipops for my little one's class.
