Lizard Cake

My son starts planning what he wants for his next birthday cake the day after his birthday. This past year he went through dozens of cake ideas and finally set on a lizard cake...

I'll admit it turned out like a gecko, but my son loved it, and that's all that matters, right?

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Cake

When my youngest turned 1, the only cake that seemed fitting for her was The Very Hungry Caterpillar! When we handed her that cake, she ate, and she ate, and she ate!

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!):
Thomas the Train Birthday Cake
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.
