Easy DIY Bow Frame

Tidy up your toddler’s room with this DIY hair bow frame. Firstborns usually get spoiled. Not just by mom and dad. But grandparents, in-laws, and friends. They’re the firstborn so naturally we all want to give them as many cute outfits, shoes, toys, and books. My firstborn is two-and-a-half years old and Elle’s room is […]

DIY Lip Gloss with Your Toddlers

My daughter Elle loves to sit in my lap while I put on my makeup. Of course she wants to imitate and do exactly like her mommy, so I give her a small chap stick to put on her lips while I apply my lipstick. She loves to smear it on, smack her lips in […]

DIY Neem and Mint Toothpaste

If you are anything like me, you have a little too much faith in the purchases you make. If you tell me it is natural, I believe it is natural. If you tell me it is organic, I believe it is organic. If you tell me it is healthful, I believe that it is healthful. […]

DIY Coffee Exfoliating Scrub

With cold weather comes dry skin. There are so many body scrubs and exfoliating options that deciding what to use on your skin can be completely overwhelming and costly. Why not concoct your own exfoliating scrub with an ingredient you probably already have in your cabinet: coffee? The therapeutic benefits of coffee are renowned in the […]

Summer DIY Project: Refinishing an Outdoor Table

Our family has been using our backyard more and more as our boys get older, and it’s always a treat when we can get all of us outside to play (and work) in our own backyard. The past month or so I’ve started doing a little DIY project: refinishing a round butcher block table. The […]

DIY Project: Magnetic Slime

Well, it is officially that time of year for chilling out, relaxing, and figuring out ways to keep the kids happy, busy, and occupied on those sunburned or rainy days. While it is super messy and I’ve sacrificed the soles of way too many shoes to the slime and Playdoh gods, the kiddos love the […]

DIY Wax Paper Goodie Bags

I may be a little crazy… Only I would think it’s easier to make my own baked goods bags from scratch than buy plastic baggies. But I have a No Plastic Bag Policy at home and we refuse to spend money on anything that’s so terrible for the environment. Forward to now. My son had a preschool […]

Make Your Own Aromatherapy Dough for Kids

My kids are hitting the Play-Doh phase really hard right now. I completely understand the appeal of Play-Doh for kids, and it really is such a good way to incorporate imagination and fine motor/gross motor skills into daily play; however, the artificial dyes are non-toxic, yes, but not exactly healthy, AND the stuff dries out […]

DIY Bubble Solution

Bubbles are a big deal in our house. Though, to be honest, they should be a big deal in any house with toddlers and preschoolers. Last year, we rented an awesome bubble machine for their birthday party and I realized we could probably buy one for just as cheap. So we did, and, instead of paying […]
