While I was provided with a sample of this product for review the opinion expressed is my own. This Winter has seemed extra cold to me. I say, Jack Frost has been hanging out in my town for far too long! My position at work recently changed and I was allowed to start working from home as of February 1st! Yay! This change has been a great one for my family and allows me to pick my children up from school on my lunch.  I have worked from home previously and we have an office...

Is it a windsock or a mobile?  I’m not sure, but I think it is a super cute and easy to do dollar store craft for St. Patrick’s Day!  There are many pieces of this craft you could change up to make it more weather tolerant if you want to hang it outside, but I went for easy and available!  Just about everything in this craft was purchased from my local dollar store, but the construction paper I had on hand. What You Need: Various color streamers Black...

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...
