Kids need a creative outlet.  They need to be able to express themselves, and invent new ways of looking at common household objects.  Little kids get to work on the fine motor coordination and learn other great skills to excel in school.  Older kids need to learn how to create their own entertainment.  An hour spent making handprint creatures is much more valuable than an hour spent playing video games, or watching cartoons.   We have been collecting...

We live and die by bath time at our house. I don’t know why Susie has never enjoyed bath time, maybe its the soap I always end up washing in her eyes, or her dry skin that makes her itch incessantly for hours afterwards. Either way saying that bath time at my house is no fun would be an understatement.  I am constantly looking for new and exciting ways to get my girls in the tub and bathed without an hour long fight.    In honor of our good friend...

Susie and I have a love/hate relationship with art. Susie loves all things art. I love art, but with a busy household I am not so keen on the mess that sometimes our art projects create. Marble painting is a great fun way to paint while keeping the mess to a minimum.  We decided to marble paint shamrocks. The key to keeping marble painting mess free is a bucket that is relatively deep. A deep bucket helps ensure that Susie can have a great time shaking it really hard and...

Lucky the Leprechaun came to visit us last night and left Susie a special treat he whipped up in his kitchen along with a set of special instructions. Susie couldn’t wait to make magic mud. We got straight to work, after eating the green chocolate covered shamrock. Use one cup of corn starch.   1/2 cup of water, and several drops of green food coloring.   Stir, stir, stir! We had lots of fun playing with the magic mud. It’s texture is what gives it the...

Lucky the leprechaun came to visit our house last night. Lucky is a very good friend of our elf on the shelf, Dopey Hi-Ho. The girls were very excited to see that Lucky had finally arrived.  He brought magic rocks and a rock washing solution for the girls.   The girls loved searching the house for the Magic Leprechaun Rocks! We used the magic water to wash the rocks. Even little B was getting excited watching the rocks come clean. Wow! Look what Lucky left us.   We...

The opinions in this article are my own. I do not work for, or with, any brand mentioned in this article, nor do I have any official relationship with them.  I have a relationship with GigaSavvy, for whom I create original editorial content. Before we had our son, my husband and I weren’t living the most healthy of lifestyles.  We do a lot of work on the computer, and spend a lot of free time watching movies or playing video games.  Admittedly, we live...
