On nice summer nights, when it isn’t too warm, we have been enjoying our family dinner outside. It has been so nice, that is except when you go to take a drink and then notice a bug floating in it. Ugh, disgusting. So I broke out the Perler beads, and now am enjoying bug free lemonade!
A lot of the time, the simplest toys can be the most fun, and that’s why I love the idea behind story stones. They’re simple painted rocks with objects that can help build the scene for a story. They encourage kids to be creative and use their imaginations! Here are some great story stone ideas.
Customize your stones to fit your child’s personality. Design the rocks based on their favorite toys, food, and places.

With back to school season in full swing, it’s time to break out those books! Get kids excited to read with homemade bookmarks they’ll love to show off!
If you have a kid who loves reading about magic, they will certainly love this wand bookmark. Use different colors and jewels for a custom wand that fits your kid’s personality.
So, mushrooms may be the food that I hate the most. Being a vegetarian, it can be a little difficult to hate mushrooms as much as I do, but I just can’t develop a taste for them. Mushrooms that you don’t eat, on the other hand? I love them, I think they’re adorable. That’s why I love a good toadstool project like these.
Both kids and adults can have fun making these toadstools to decorate the garden. Make them in classic toadstool colors or have fun coming up with your own color combinations.
