I am enjoying the Cricut so much right now! I cannot believe how easy it is to use. I probably spend the most time on creating the designs. Being that I am a newbie, I also find myself performing test trials on the pieces before I use the final material. I am sure once I feel more confident the time I will spend crafting projects will be even less!
Today I am sharing with you a FREE PRINTABLE:COUNTING GOLDFISH for your toddler. Sometimes we need a few distractions when we are eating. I created this fun FREE PRINTABLE intentionally for visually showing my daughter numbers/counting. However it has also come in handy at the dinner table as a distraction when we are eating (a good distraction that is.) So it works right?
I have been invited to join in on the Rocking Motherhood Challenge by my new friend, Heather. I encourage you to check out her amazing blog at Glitteronadime.com
Thank you Heather for nominating me!
Today I am going to talk to you about how we chose the right hardware for our kitchen. The smallest change can make a world of difference. By adding knobs or pulls to your cabinets you can bring a whole new style to your kitchen. We partnered up with Kreg on this project, I am excited to share with you the tool that helped make this project efficient. When we purchased our home and choose our cabinetry we decided not to go with the hardware that was offered by the builder. It was very standard and we didn’t want to pay the extra money for something that we were not too fond of. So fast forward to 4 years later, and we are finally putting the finishing touches on our kitchen! We have lots of mini kitchen projects ahead of us, but one step at a time!
Teacher Appreciation Day is just around the corner! Its time to show our teachers how much they mean to us. This is technically my first year showing our appreciation for my daughter’s teachers. I am super excited to share with you my creation!
We are a no shoes house. We actually were like this before we had a baby, but totally more OCD about it now. Our little girls room is where she plays and (use to crawl all over the place.) I saw this saying online and thought it was so cute. For about a year I had a paper sign on my daughter’s door. Since I own the amazing Cricut I thought I could make a really cute sign for her door. So here it is!
So I did some rearranging in the front of our home. We are getting ready to work on a BIG project in our living room, dining room and foyer (it has not begun yet, but stay tuned!) You see, I have this wall in the foyer of my home. I do not like this wall because the good old ac vent is there and cannot be covered in any way. I had a table in front of it for the longest time, but I found that it was taking away from the looks of my table. Plus the dust was building up in the ac vent. I really do think I should be blocking it, but the AC man never told us it was not OK. Anyways, for the longest time I was trying to figure out what to do with this wall. My first thought was a gallery wall! You can do so much with a gallery wall. There are no rules or limitations of what you can put on it. So I made my decision, gallery wall it is!
So I purchased a bunch of these wooden pieces about a year ago. I also purchased this canvas. I didn’t have an ideas at the time, I just picked them up because they were super cheap. Like, $0.10 a piece for the wood pieces and $3.00 for the canvas…I knew that I could come up with something cute. Continue reading
I have been on the hunt for the last two months picking up little things here and there for my daughter’s Easter basket. I use to look forward to the candy in my basket when I was growing up. However, what happens when you have a toddler? Candy is not really the best option. So I have complied a list of ideas that hopefully can help you fill your little one’s Easter baskets!
- Easter Coloring Book with crayons
- Play-Doh Spring Easter Eggs
- Easter Books (Infant board books)
- Beach Toys
- Easter Rubber Ducks (I found some in the dollar section of my local Target)
- Easter Plush
- Easter Egg Sidewalk Chalk
- Bubbles (Found in Target’s Easter section for under $2.00)
- Annie’s Organic Bunny Fruit Snacks
- Annie’s Organic Cheddar Bunnies
- Plush Bunny Ears Headband
- Easter Plate, Fork and Spoon
Here is a selection of Easter books in our household. Yes, my daughter has quite the collection in 2 years.
- Little Golden Books “The Fuzzy Duckling”
- Little Golden Books “Animal Friends”
- Little Golden Books “Home for a Bunny”
- “Hey Duck”
- Blue’s Clues “Happy Easter, Sprinkles”
- “Duck and Goose, Here Comes the Easter Bunny”
- “All Ears”
- “My Easter Bible Storybook”
- “Five Little Ducks” (My daughter is going to be super excited about this one, this is currently one of her favorite songs. We sing it to her at least 1-3 times a day) I know she will just love this book!
Easter Activities for Children:
- Don’t forget to take your little ones to see the Easter Bunny
- Easter Egg Coloring
- Easter Photo shoots in your own backyard. Dress up your little one, throw some plastic eggs in the yard and have fun with it!
- Egg Hunts are always fun! We decided to do a little egg hunt in our backyard. We were actually practicing for the neighborhood egg hunt with the bigger kids. Inside the eggs I filled them with “Annie’s Organic Fruit snacks,” and “Annie’s Organic cheddar bunnies.”
- Easter Egg Scavenger Hunt (my little one is a wee too young for this one, but that will not stop me for starting to plan a scavenger hunt for the future!)
The other item in the basket is a Vtech Smart Person “Stella and her Bunny.” Since my daughter loves her Vtech Smart People, I thought this toy would fit perfectly into the mix!
I hope my post helps give you all ideas for your toddler’s Easter baskets! Thank you for reading and Happy Easter!
