Play Dough Snowmen

Play Dough Activity for Kids

It’s starting to get cold outside, but since we don’t live near the snow, we decided to make play dough snowmen instead. We used this simple play dough recipe and added peppermint extract to give it a nice wintery, fresh smell. To decorate we used things we had around the house like googley eyes, beads, sticks, ribbon, and pipe cleaners. The kids had a blast and made cute snowmen families. This is a fun activity to try at home, or to package up as an inexpensive gift for friends.

Halloween Treats

Halloween Treats

My three-year-old goes to a preschool/daycare every day. So when I have a little extra time, I like to make a special snack for the kids. It helps out the teacher (I know she appreciates it) and the kids love it! I try and keep the snacks healthy, so these ones are a perfect blend of healthy and some sweet. And honestly, they took me 15 minutes tops. So you can do it too!

Shell Sandcastle Art

Sandcastle Kids Art

Thinking outside the sandbox! Now your kids can create their own shell sandcastles without going to the beach.

Unfortunately where we live in San Diego there aren't as many cool shells on the beach as you'd think. So as much as I'd like to take the credit for my mad skills in shell collecting, these are all store bought. But they are actually from my wedding in 2010, so I feel better finally finding a home for them!

Kids Geometric Painting

Kid Arts and Crafts

My 4 year old is learning about shapes and colors at preschool this year, so I decided to try a little art project at home that would get her thinking about both. We used painter's tape to create different shapes for her to paint in. This made it simple for her to stay within the lines because the tape served as a nice barrier for her broad brush strokes. A simple project that looks like a masterpiece!

Painting with Water

Children Painting with Water

My kids love playing outdoors, and they are always looking for new activities. We used to do a lot of chalk on the driveway, but since my 1 year old started getting in the mix, it has been difficult to keep him from eating the chalk (and anything else in his sight). So, I came up with a fun activity they could all enjoy.

Butterfly Valentine Craft (Candy Free!)

Valentine Craft Candy Free

My daughter’s teacher sent out a note this year saying the class would be exchanging valentines in class and that it was a great opportunity for them to practice writing their name on each of the cards. Candy was an optional add-on, but could not be eaten at school. I decided that it would be fun to include a little something for each of the kids but I didn’t want to encourage the kids eating candy, so we went to the dollar store to look for alternatives.
