Koala Bookmark

As we were brainstorming ideas for our set of animal bookmarks, my oldest daughter insisted that we include the top two cutest animals - koalas and pandas.

Apparently, this was determined by an unofficial polling of her 4th grade class.

I've got to agree with them. Koalas and pandas are very cute. And if a random sampling of 4th graders think they're cute, then we'll have to make some bookmarks.

Let's start with this fun koala bookmark.


This bookmark is super easy to make if you follow these step-by-step instructions.

Let's get drawing!

Beautiful Spring Art Projects for Kids

What are some things that come to mind when you think of spring?

I think of singing birds and butterflies. Pretty pastel flowers. Deep, long rainstorms giving every living thing a satisfying drink of water. Rainbows that show up after the rain is done. 

Ah spring. It's one of my favorite times of year. And, it's the perfect time of year for one of these spring art projects.

They're would all look beautiful on display and would give your walls a touch of spring.

Cardboard Tube Bear

We're building a zoo.

Unfortunately, it's not a zoo that you can come and visit. But, it's one that we can share with you and one that you can make yourself.

This should be fun!

Let's make a zoo full of cardboard tube animals. We're going to start with some friendly bears.

Cat Bookmark

Everyone in my family loves cats. 

We think they're silly and they're fun. 

We love to cuddle with them and pet them until they purr. Don't you just love the sound of a cat purring?

So, of course, we had to add a pretty orange tabby cat to our growing pile of animal bookmarks.


This cat bookmark is very simple to draw, just follow the step-by-step tutorial.

In no time, you'll have a super-cute cat peeking over the top of your current book.

Yummy Popcorn Treats for Your Next Family Movie Night

I absolutely love family movie nights.

Often, we pick out a good movie, grab a couple of pizzas, and spread a blanket on the floor for a pizza picnic movie night. It never fails to make everyone happy.

But, pizza is not the only food that is perfect for a movie night. There are a ton of snack choices, but one of my favorites is popcorn. While it's delicious with just butter and salt, there are some fun ways to make it special


Whether you like sweet or savory, you'll find some great options in this list. Pop up a batch for your next family movie night.
