Thomas the Train Birthday Cake

My 3 year old daughter was obsessed with Thomas the Train when her birthday came around, so I knew that her birthday cake had to be reflective of this. After scouring Pinterest, I finally came up with this (and she LOVED it!):

And this is how I made it:

Popsicle Stick Boat

My 8 year old loves building things! One day he asked if we could make a boat out of Popsicle sticks, and here was the result:

I was pretty proud of how it turned out. Now we just have to seal it so it can float. I used plant pruners to cut the sticks. I used school glue when we weren't in a rush, and hot glue, especially when attaching the sides of the boat. Here's our inspiration, but my son wanted it to look more like a canoe.

This was definitely a more time-consuming craft, but he loves it, and it sits in a place of honor on his shelf. I'll be linking up to Tip Me Tuesday at Tip Junkie.

"Bite Me" Easter sign

When we were very little, my brother stole my aunt's chocolate Easter bunny and took a bite of it before hiding the evidence. When the bunny was found, my dad compared our teeth to the impressions and was able to figure out who the culprit was. Obviously, my brother still hasn't lived it down and it's one of those funny family stories that gets re-told every so often.

So, I felt my aunt needed this sign to put up in her office:

I bought the plaque at Walmart and painted it pink. I found a bunny silhouette online and uploaded it to my Cricut account. This was such a fun, simple project, and it gave my aunt a good laugh.

Happy Easter! Here's my inspiration. I'll be linking up to Tip Tuesday at Tip Junkie.

Spring Break Target Practice

If spring break is coming up and you're scrambling with ways to entertain your kids, why not review their basic math skills and work on some target practice?
Spring Break Fun: Nerf Target Practice
For this activity, you'll need some Nerf guns, balls, some paper towel or wrapping paper tubes, and empty box, and some glue.

Cut your tubes to different heights and glue them to the bottom of the box. Write different numbers on each tube to represent their value.

Have your kids aim and shoot at the tubes. As they play, they have to add up their points. This was fun for my 10, 8, and 3 year old!

Thank you Frugal Fun for Boys and Girls for the fun idea. I'll be linking up to Tip Me Tuesday at Tip Junkie.

Fruity Cereal Rainbow

I'm pulling out all the crafts I did when my boys were little to entertain my 3 year old daughter, and it's so fun comparing how different they are! I'm so glad I have this archive of crafts to pull up when she says it's time to do a craft. Recently we made a fruity cereal rainbow and she loved it.
