DIY Snowman Handprint Ornament

Christmas is right around the corner, but this easy DIY ornament is super quick and will be treasured for years to come! I do it every year with the kiddos in my Kindergarten class and I’ve been told by many parents how much they treasure it and enjoy hanging it on their tree long after [...]

DIY Mini Mei Tai Doll Carrier

DIY Mini Mei Tai Doll Carrier

I have talked about my love for babywearing more than once on MSW. A while back, I was surfing the web and came across a child-sized baby carrier meant for a child’s stuffed animal or doll. My son saw what I was looking at and was mesmerized, “Mommy, can I have one of those?!” Then [...]

C’s Butterfly Garden

C’s Butterfly Garden

My two-year-old loves butterflies. We’ve done lots of butterfly crafts, (check out this one we’ve already shared) but our favorite has to be the toilet paper roll butterflies we made this summer. A few months ago, we made a bunch of these adorable butterflies, decorated them all, and then hung them in her room to [...]

DIY Mini-Pumpkins for Fall

Fall is in the air and Thanksgiving is on its way! This time of year always makes me both happy and homesick. It also tends to awaken some sort of decorating instinct that lies dormant between the time that the Christmas ornaments get packed up and the time that the leaves start to blush red [...]

DIY Sharpie Mug

DIY Sharpie Mug

I was looking around the house one day for a fun, easy craft I could do with my two-year-old daughter. We had a couple plain white mugs, so I decided we’d make a ‘designer coffee mug,’ designed, of course, by my little girl! I’ve been seeing the DIY Sharpie Mug around Pinterest, so we gave [...]

Foam Crafts With Kids

Foam Crafts With Kids

My daughter loves crafts. I was searching through the craft kits at WalMart, looking for something age-appropriate for her. Unfortunately, all the kits seemed a little too advanced for my almost-three-year-old. She was very persistent about wanting to “make something,” though. I found a big pack of foam sheets in primary colors and I thought [...]

Halloween is a great opportunity for crafts because the possibilities are endless; pumpkins, ghosts, mummies, spiders, bats, vampires, monsters and more!

DIY Bulldozer Costume

DIY Bulldozer Costume

This Halloween, my son is finally old enough to choose his own costume. He’s very into construction trucks right now, so it was no surprise when he said he wanted to be a bulldozer for Halloween. Right away I imagined I could put something together with a cardboard box and I was sure there would [...]

Emma’s DIY Dorothy Costume

Emma’s DIY Dorothy Costume

Last year was my daughter’s second Halloween. Being only a year and a half old, she really couldn’t express what she ‘wanted’ to be, so I decided to look for ideas myself. I knew it’d probably be the the last year before she’d be able to make the decision herself, so I wanted to find [...]
