I love musicals.

Love, love, love, love musicals.

They're fun to watch. They inspire you to sing and dance. And, they're often family friendly, which makes them a perfect choice for family movie night.

Polar Bear Bookmark

We never have enough bookmarks at our house.

I don't know what happens to them. But, I suspect they're hanging out the missing socks and hair ties.

Where do those things disappear to?

I'm constantly grabbing any scrap of paper I can find to mark my place just because I can't find an actual bookmark.

I'd prefer something cute, like this adorable peeking polar bear bookmark.


Don't worry if you don't think you're very good at drawing. This polar bear it very east to draw and I'll walk you through the process step-by-step. 

This easy craft is perfect for kids and tweens, though they may need a little bit of adult help with the art knife.

Cardboard Tube Penguin

There's no better way to inspire my kids to do a craft project than to offer up something cute.

And, penguins are definitely as cute as it gets.

Have you ever met a person that didn't think penguins were cute? I haven't. They're irresistible.

So, grab a cardboard tube or two, and let's get starting crafting. We'll turn it into a penguin so cute you'll want to make a whole colony.

12 of the Best Winter Art Projects for Kids

I love to decorate with kid art.

I know all parents say this, but I truly think my girls' artwork is the best in the world. And, while best could be disputed, what can't be disputed is that their art is more special to me than any other artwork I could hang on my wall.

If you're anything like me (and I bet you are), you're always looking for ways to inspire your kids to create.

All of these winter art projects would look great hanging on the wall. And, better yet, they'd all be tons of fun to create.

School Spirit Washer Necklace

Out of all the options for dress-up days at school, School Spirit Day seems like an easy one to pull off.

Right?

Not when you have a child who primarily dresses in one color... pink.

Sigh.

I can't even think of a school that uses pink for one of its colors. Our current school's colors are red and black. They're popular colors... just not pink.

So, the last time we had School Spirit Day, I got out the craft supplies instead of making an emergency trip to the store for new clothes. Now, we have these awesome School Spirit Washer Necklaces to wear.

Yay!
