Cord Keeper Collage

Was one of your New Year’s Resolutions to get more organized?  It is definitely a great resolution.  Why not start with all the cords in your living space and use up some of the scraps of fabric you’ve been hoarding at the same time?  We all have tons of electronics and it seems like everyone has a different cord.  I can easily take over multiple drawers.  Make this Cord Keeper Roll-up and get all those cords organized!

If you have a creative child around, there are many great craft supplies to keep them busy, and keep you worry-free. Keep the right supplies on hand, and crafting with your kid can be fun and help you build memories that can last well into their lives.

Easy Bird Treats for Spring

Easy Bird Treats

These recycled bird feeders will be done in no time with plenty of opportunities to learn about local birds. The wintertime is especially great to teach kids about the availability of food during the colder months, and why it’s important to help out our feathered friends.

New on the Valentine Front

Every year, about this time, I start thinking about what on earth I’m going to pull together for classroom valentines this year. With kids at two schools with varying rules for what is and what isn’t allowed, dark hints from my older child that things need to be “cool” and my own ever pressing desire to do something new and exciting, I’ve been on the hunt for some new and improved Valentines ideas. Here are some of my top contenders.

Tic-Tac-Toe Valentines - How to Nest for Less

Tic-Tac-Toe ValentinesHow to Nest for Less

Some of the classrooms at my daughter’s school are strictly no treats, even for Valentines Day, so this tic-tac-toe Valentine is a good no-candy option. And since kids always love new pencils, the inclusion of a new, heart themed writing instrument will be quite the bonus!

XOXO Tic-Tac-Toe Valentine Cards - Nest of Posies

Although if candy is allowed, this version of Tic-Tac-Toe is also super cute, and perhaps “cool” enough for the older kids to hand out to their friends.

You Rule Valentine Printable - Relocated Living

Here’s another no-candy option for the kids! Rulers! Especially since this time a year is about when the kids start to realize they’ve lost the rulers they were sent to school with back in September.

Classroom Valentine Idea - Pinching Your Pennies

These little maze Valentines are so cute and fun that no on will notice the candy is missing! And the mazes will keep kids entertained long after any candy has been nibbled away.

What are you planning for this year’s Valentine’s Day? Send us your ideas and check out these and other ideas on our Craft Trends Pinboard!
