This weekend we participated in our local Hayden Library craft fair and we made some glittery paper crafts to “sell” to other kids. Each kid who came received tickets they could use to buy crafts.

My girls love creating art projects and crafts. It’s easy to encourage kids to enjoy art by regularly planning kid-friendly creative projects. Coloring, cutting with scissors, and creating unique art encourages kids to design using their imaginations and practice their motor skills. We love filling an empty afternoon by creating a colorful butterfly sun catcher or mixing play dough colors.
DIY slime seems to be fairly popular for kid’s sensory activities. What’s not to love? It’s squishy and colorful, and you can mix it up using ingredients you have at home and watch the magical chemistry transformation take place. Here are some fun glitter slime recipes to inspire your kids’ next science project.
All stay-at-home moms know it can be challenging to entertain kids during the summer, school breaks, and open afternoons and evening hours. My kids regularly ask me to play with them or immediately default to wanting to watch a show or play games on the tablet. We limit screen time to about 1 hour a day, which leaves a lot more hours to fill with interactive and engaging kids’ activities. Here are a few simple kids’ activities to encourage imaginative play, also featuring Jubilant balance bikes!

A 2-year-old birthday is a big deal. We recently celebrated our little one’s second birthday with cupcakes, twinkle lights, and fairies. No one ever needs to convince me to whip up a cute little birthday party. Fortunately my two girls’ birthdays are spaced out in May and October and my little guy made his entrance into the world after Christmas so I get to plan a fun kid’s birthday party every few months. I kept this toddler birthday party fairly simple; cupcakes, a tiny birthday cake that my daughter helped me decorate during nap time, and pretzels dipped in candy melts. We had a blast! Happy 2nd birthday, baby girl!
