I made these up the other day to tie on to the mason jar gifts we made for teachers and friends and I thought I’d share them with you too, as they’re really useful for anything you can think of this Easter! 
These are Typo mason jars, a little bit of shredded tissue paper, some cute little speckled chocolate eggs […]

Here is a super fun and easy Easter craft to do this extra long weekend with the kids!!The other day Chloe said to me she wished and wished with all her might that she would find a little bunny pet in the back yard for us to love and take care of. I said to her that that was a lovely wish, but that it was one that probably couldn’t come true right now as we aren’t ready for a pet! I encouraged her to play with her hundreds of soft toy bunnies {my kids […]

chocolate playdough

March 26th, 2013|Categories: crafts|Tags: , , , |5 Comments

This has been a HUGE hit at our house. It looks and smells like chocolate cookie dough and is so much fun to play with.My kids have been making hot chocolates, cookies, muffins and cakes with this playdough. I love smelling it, it smells so good. Maybe don’t make it if your little one is keen on eating home made playdough even though it’s super salty! But if your kiddo were to eat some, at least you know it’c completely non toxic 🙂 Chocolate Playdough:1 cup of flour1/2 cup of salt1 cup of water1 Tb cream of […]

Our salt dough Easter creations! Some of these go all the way back to 2009, when a super cute 2 year old Noah made his first one! Our sweet little Easter […]

I also did a few with just some spots and hearts etc.Then Noah sat down to paint them.And slowly found the secret messages that were waiting for him.Then he asked to […]
