Mother's Day Thumbprint Flowers

Last year we mailed these cards to my mom and my mother-in-law:
Thumb-print flowers Mothers Day Card
The flowers are made of each of our thumb-prints! My 1 year old was a little challenging, but I still love how this handmade card turned out. Dads, you can do this with your kids for your wife to preserve how tiny their thumbs were, or these cards are perfect for grandparents.

Thank you Crafty Morning for the cute idea!

Footprint Carrot for Easter

A perfect Easter craft for little ones who are too little to do handprint crafts is this adorable footprint carrot!

Just put baby's foot in orange paint and "stamp" it onto paper or wood. Then draw or paint the green leaves and you're done! Footprint crafts are the perfect way to look back later and see how tiny your kids really were.

We made an Easter card for my aunt, and this was on the front.

Thank you Parenting for the cute idea!

Help Little Ones Feel Better with ClearPop (Giveaway! Ends 4/10/17)

Growing up I was one of those kids who had regular ear infections. I think I had at least one each winter and it was debilitating! One year I slept through my brother's birthday party due to an ear infection. When my family went to Australia, I spent a good portion of the trip in pain from an ear infection. Apparently I never really outgrew them, because I even had one two years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter! Needless to say, I am well aware of the pain, discomfort and overall misery that ear infections inflict on kids.

Thankfully, my kids have never been prone to ear infections...they've had maybe one or two in my 10 years of parenting. But, if they ever do have one (or if I have another!), I know exactly what I will be reaching for to ease their pain...ClearPop! I can't even express how much I wish these had been around when I was little.

DIY Easter Bunny Onesie

My daughter has a stuffed bunny that she adores...she sleeps with it and carries it with her wherever she can. Needless to say, Easter is a wonderful holiday for her because of all the bunnies! So, I decided to make her her own bunny shirt:

After I saw a bunny shirt at Craftaholics Anonymous, I knew I could make one with materials I had on hand! I used freezer paper stenciling to make this shirt. To make your own, you'll need a stencil...print out a silhouette of a bunny or use the one I drew below:
