Easter Basket Ideas: Toddler and Baby

Easter Basket Ideas: Toddler and Baby

Spring feels like the perfect time to give baby's things a little update c/o the Easter Bunny! I started Josie's basket with this adorable rope bunny bin that I plan to use for toy storage after Easter. Like the basket, I wanted to pick out some toys that had a spring "vibe" but that didn't scream Easter so that she can continue to use them as she grows ...

Easter Basket Ideas for Kids!

Easter Basket Ideas for Kids!

Did Easter sneak up on anyone else this year? It's less than two weeks away so I spent some time this weekend putting together some Easter basket ideas! I try to be intentional but fun when putting together their baskets. (So yes, they're definitely getting toothbrushes, but to be fair have you seen a cuter toothbrush than these?!) I have a rainbow and unicorn crazed 6-going-on-16-year-old girl, a ...

Playdough Valentine DIY

Playdough Valentine DIY

We have always celebrated Valentine's Day with homemade gifts. I like to keep it simple with something like a handmade heart card (that I usually stay up way too late crafting with doilies, stickers, the whole 9 yards 😅). Last year, I also made the kids a set of melted crayon hearts. This year, I'm giving them an "XOXO Dough" playdough valentine! You can find my favorite homemade ...

Valentine’s Day Kids Books

Stool | Cape | Dress | Pink Rug | Braided Rug | Lamp This little book corner has been something I've wanted to put up forever.

So they finally found a home in Harper's room as a place I can ...

Welcome back, Elfie!

Welcome back, Elfie!

December is finally here and we are so excited to begin our favorite month of traditions! The fun starts right away on December 1 when our Elf on the Shelf, Elfie, rides in on her snowflake to join us for the holidays- and what an entrance she made this year! The best part was that it actually snowed a TON outside as well, making it just about the ...

Rice Krispie Treats, but make it spooky 👻. There are a lot of things I look forward to during the holidays, but festive treats are hard to beat.

Spread spOoOoky Halloween fun by Booing your friends and neighbors this year! I've been searching for new ways to celebrate Halloween this year since it turns out that traditional Trick-or-Treating during a pandemic is not my thing... One of the best ideas that I've come across is "Boo-ing" friends and neighbors. Here's how it works: For our Boo bags, we made up a big batch (because of ...

Transformers Birthday Party- Ethan’s Trans4mer Party!

Transformers Birthday Party- Ethan’s Trans4mer Party!

To say Ethan has been Transformer obsessed lately would be an understatement, so it came to no one's surprise that he asked for his 4th birthday party to have a Transformers theme. What DID come as a surprise is that we'd be stuck celebrating his birthday with just our immediate family at home during a global pandemic 🙃- some things you just can't plan for, huh? I wanted ...

Easter at Home

Easter at Home

I never thought I'd overhear my kids talking to each other about how the Easter Bunny might not be allowed to leave the house this year to deliver baskets, but I was pleasantly surprised that they were okay with it because "everyone" is staying at home right now. Welcome to Easter, pandemic-style. Here's how I still made our Easter at home egg-stra special for my kids. This year held ...
