Valentine’s Day is only a couple of days away and I’m sure there are more than a few of you who haven’t even thought about your class valentines yet. Instead of running to the store, try whipping up one of these homemade valentines. They’re unique, memorable, and best of all: easy.
When I was little, I loved creating paper hearts this way, so I’m sure you could talk a kid into giving you a hand to create their valentines. These favors are super cute, and so easy to make, you’ll be done in no time.
We’re right in the middle of winter with only spring to look forward to. Lots of kids start to get a little cabin fever when it’s too cold for them to go out and play. Lots of kids also love penguins, so it only makes sense to entertain them by making some penguin friends to get them through the winter!
Not only is this penguin adorable, but it also reuses plastic bottles which can help keep the real penguins’ ocean homes safe. Make a whole Waddle of penguins! (Can you believe that’s actually what you call a group of them?)
Some of my fondest memories of growing up involved my extended family around a game or two of dominoes. These are special memories that I hope to recreate someday with my little girl, and to help with that I decided to make a oversized starter set of dominoes for her.
Here’s a great, and simple project to do with kids during the cold days of winter. With a minimal supplies, and a little time, you can make a neat star decoration, that’s almost magical when you finally unfold it!
One of the best parts of Christmas for any kid and family is the chance to decorate the tree and relive the memories that each ornament brings. Homemade ornaments are some of the most fun to look back on. Here are some fun DIY ornament ideas for kids of any age.
Make some fun and sparkly lollipops in each child’s favorite color. These are very quick and adorable ornaments for kids of all ages. Paint the year on each one before you cover it in glitter to make it even more personal!
Have your little ones give you a hand (literally) with this handprint project. The kids will love it and you will have a cute keepsake. I always love looking at last year’s handprint crafts and showing my little one how much she has grown.
