Kids doing remote school from home because of the pandemic might have more time for DIY crafts this Valentine’s Day. What could be better than this Valentine Fortune Teller you can play with after you make it? Get the tutorial!
Kids get to old for the traditional egg hunt before they want to give up having fun on Easter. And if course it’s before they want to give up getting candy! But there are fun things you can do with tweens and teens that are more than an egg hunt.
One year we made a texting scavenger hunt for our three teens/preteens. One of the best parts? The Easter Bunny didn’t have to get up early to hide eggs in the yard!
We all had a ball doing the hunt. I hope you do too!…
Here’s a Halloween craft your kids can help with that makes a great centerpiece decoration for your Halloween party. A Haunted House out of recycled boxes!
It’s fun when your kids can help you make your own Halloween decorations. This is an easy Halloween craft to make with your kids. It makes a great centerpiece for a Halloween party! I came up with this idea years ago and it was one of the crafts that I had published in Family Fun Magazine. At the time, it was owned by Disney, and it was fun to deposit checks from Disney in the bank. :)…
Happy Halloween! I’ve got a quick and easy Halloween recipe for you for some fun Halloween party food. Great for a kids party!
I don’t know about you, but we need something fast for dinner on Halloween night. And it needs to be something that the kids will eat without a fuss. Here’s a fun recipe for dinner or a Halloween party snack, jack o’lantern quesadillas. (Can you believe that WordPress doesn’t know how to spell quesadilla? There are red underlines all over this post!)…
Start your Independence day off right with some patriotic waffles! Whip cream and berries. Mmmm….
You do know how to make fresh whip cream, don’t you? It’s so easy, and so delicious! So I thought I’d quickly find a link to a recipe on-line of how to make it.
To my surprise, the first 5 recipes aren’t like I do it. The first three do it with a hand whisk. Um. No….
Instructions for the tissue box haunted house with tissue ghosts can be found at the post Make Your Own Halloween Decorations: Tissue box haunted house. Happy Crafting!
If your kids were as enamored by the Disney movie Frozen as my girls have been, you may be looking for fun winter craft ideas for kids to make. Here in central Texas, we often have to make our own snow. You can make a whole snow scene out of Styrofoam that won’t melt!
This seems a bit late – instructions for a peppermint wreath after Christmas, but I don’t have the staff (or the desire!) to make my Christmas ideas in July. 🙂 I’m going to work on timing, but for now, here it is – a Christmas craft after Christmas!
I love making new crafts, but I really don’t like making repeated copies. This was a difficulty with this craft, because I wanted it for my kitchen windows, and I had three. Lo and behold, but as I was working on the first wreath two more magically appeared! It was a Christmas miracle!…
Little kids won’t really go for the fancy fruit salad with Jello and cottage cheese that your Great Aunt Ida always brings to Thanksgiving dinner. This Thanksgiving Fruit Turkey recipe is an easy way to make plain fruit look fancy. It’s also a great way to take fruit to a Thanksgiving class party.
Don’t worry if it’s not perfect! As I’ll show you at the end of the post, it will turn out great even if you’re not too persnickety….
