Craft for a Cause to Help a Mother Out

Would you Help a Mother Out? Fabulous mom bloggers in about a dozen cities nation-wide will be hosting diaper drives during the month of May in honor of Mother’s Day. Why Diapers?

We love the book, Winter Trees, and my preschooler has become adept at spotting leaf shapes. Although it is a bit pricier than our mass-produced wooden puzzles, I am very tempted to add this to the kids’ collection. — WANT IT: wooden leaf shape puzzle ($25) from Just Hatched. … Read entire article »
