Jello sugar cookies can be customized with any color and cut into fun shapes. We made both traditional round cookies and colorful unicorn cookies. My kids had a blast helping and of course, eating our creative snacks!

I am a firm believer in hands-on play time and letting kids get dirty. Around here we spend as much time outdoors as possible exploring and imagining. I have a 3 year old boy so we do a lot of playing with dirt, mud, rocks and trucks. My son also loves helping me hands-on in the kitchen, which is a different mind of mess. We love making these healthier, easy no-bake cookies that we like to call “Mudpies” for a fun dirt-themed treat that is refined sugar-free and dairy-free!
A 2-year-old birthday is a big deal. We recently celebrated our little ones second birthday with cupcakes, twinkle lights, fairies. a tiny birthday cake that my daughter helped me decorate during nap time, and pretzels dipped in candy melts!
Creative birthday cakes are a festive way to celebrate a birthday and you don’t always have to buy an expensive cake. It’s easy to make a tiered birthday cake using 2 boxed cake mixes and some colorful frosting. I love customizing my daughter’s birthday cakes to match the theme of her kids’ birthday celebration. I’m excited to share how I made my daughter’s blue and green tiered birthday cake for her Superhero Mermaid Birthday Party.
Kid’s birthday parties can be memorable without breaking your family’s budget. I planned a superhero mermaid birthday party for my 4-year-old daughter complete with treats, a tiered birthday cake and cute paper mermaid decorations.
