Friday Night Lights

Little Boy Shooting at Goal

I am just going to come out and say it: I think weekend activities are way overrated and I’m sick of the push to get little kids seriously invested in a series of activities when all they want to do is play in the backyard. My strong feelings regarding the matter are directly related to […]

Constellation Night Light


Looking for a fun and educational craft you can do with your little one? In trying to find a way to quell my son’s fear of the dark, we came up with this fun and interactive project that not only helped him enjoy his room when the lights were out, but taught him a little […]

Can Mommy Put Her Pants On?!

I am a high school teacher, which means that I have summers off, which can be a sensitive subject for many people. I am not here to get into the politics or efficacy of educators having summers off; instead, I’m here to tell you that I have children now, so I DO NOT HAVE SUMMERS […]

4th of July Activity Sheets


Celebrating holidays or special occasions with kids can be difficult. Not only do you have to keep your party guests entertained and fed, you have to make sure the kids are having fun, too – so much work, it’s enough to put a damper on your mood and your party! No more! We found these […]

Quality Time: Getting Out Into Nature


We live so close to the beach, the coast, and so many hiking trails, but we rarely take the time to get out and enjoy them with my husband’s busy schedule and two young children. Honestly, it can take us up to two hours to get everyone ready to leave the house anytime we go out. But last […]

Baby Bullet Coloring Page


One of my favorite activities to do together with my son at home is art. We enjoy using everything from watercolors to markers. He especially likes to color over my pen and ink drawings, so I decided to draw something special for him and for Baby Bullet blog readers everywhere to color. He was ecstatic that I […]

Cooking with Your Kids


Egg-cellent Easter Tips


My addiction to Pinterest might be considered “unhealthy” by some. I prefer to think of it as “optimistically obsessive.” But it’s not such a terrible thing, since it helped me have one of our family’s best Easters yet. One afternoon, while strolling through its pages, I came across some Easter Egg Hunt ideas. Now maybe […]

Snow Day Sanity


In case you’ve missed it, New England has been buried in snow over the past few weeks. Many towns have had 4-5 snow days in the last week alone! To make matters even more exciting, the temperatures have been significantly below zero, which limits sledding and outdoor games. Even timing of the snow means that […]

Toddler-Sized Yoga


My husband bought a yoga mat from an El Segundo-based company last year after hemming and hawing about the price, but we ultimately decided it was worth it. He practices yoga regularly and we figured we’d all get our money’s worth, so, now, we’re trying to get the whole family involved. I also hoped getting myself a new mat would […]
