Easter Ideas For Kids

Easter is a month away, and I’ve already started planning our Ten Days of Easter activities for the girls. One thing I’ve noticed in my browsing is that it’s challenging to find Jesus-focused Easter activities. Ironic, right? Because the shops are filled with bunnies and chicks and eggs, I’m determined to do crafts and activities …

No One Told Me Knitting Was Addictive

I have one girl cousin my age, and we spent a lot of time together as kids. Growing up with three brothers, she was the sister I never had. When her parents divorced, I’d join her when she spent the weekend at her dad. When we started to outgrow My Little Pony and Barbies, one …

{Christmas Craft} Tree Ornaments

I found these cute ornaments to colour on Pink Stripey Socks. They’re perfect if you want something handmade, but aren’t in the mood for a messy and lengthy craft. Step one: Print out colouring pages and let your kids go wild. Step two: Cut out the circles and glue onto a piece of carboard. I …

Road Trip Survival: Busy Bags

We went on a road trip to Vryburg for my brother-in-law’s wedding this weekend, and I made a busy bag to keep the girls occupied for the trip. Because experience has proven that if they don’t have something to do then they will talk non-stop. Seriously, unless they are asleep, they will talk. I found …

I found some lovely ideas on Pinterest when planning the girls’ Frozen party, and when I saw how easy it was to make Elsa and Anna costumes, I knew that I wanted to do it for them. To make an Elsa costume: Materials: one prewashed white T-shirt turquoise fabric paint glitter sequins fabric glue elastic soft …

Make Your Own Tooth Pillow

Angie lost her first tooth today. I had hoped for a bit more time between the tooth loosening and actually falling out. Mostly because I needed to buy pink embroidery cotton to make her a tooth pillow. (How did I not have any pink embroidery cotton in the house? Surely it should be a girlmom …
