January 23, 2021

We made it through Christmas 2020 and now I've got my sights on Valentine's Day. Back when I was younger, we didn't have Valentine's Day boxes for kids. This is such a cute concept. However, I'm not up for making my own Valentine's Day card box. I love a good DIY project but his year I need more help for these card holder box craft kits. These are the cutest DIY mailbox kit boxes I've ever seen with so many cute details that make them interesting. Who needs a special holiday to exchange one of these? I'd give it to someone any day!

31 Awesome St. Patrick's Day Printables
January 23, 2021

My kids love printables. They really saved us while they were in homeschool last year. It was really tough trying to figure things out and navigate the homeschooling. There is something about printables that make the kids happy; they love the word searches and coloring pages. Printables keep the kids busy and entertained and we like that. They also give me a break so I can step away. There are so many ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day but I think this year we will be staying home and enjoying each other and printing out these fun printables. Most of them are free. St. Patrick's Day crafts and free St. Patrick's Day Printables are the way to go these days. We …

Top Leprechaun Traps
January 20, 2021

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. But the kids are excited about making a Leprechaun Trap.

So, I found these DIY Valentine's Day Crafts to make with recycled crayons. This isn't the first time we have used old crayons to make a Valentine's project for their class.

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.
