Spring has sprung! This means the sun stays out longer, the weather gets warmer and all my favorite holidays are right around the corner. Spring also means goodbye to snow and hello to rain. With rain you get rainbows! Rainbows are literally the most amazing part of rain and kids get so excited when they […]
Ok. It’s no secret that I’m OBSESSED with doll’s houses, Lundby doll’s houses in particular. I received my first Smaland house over a year ago and it continues to bring my family and I great joy, laughter, and enough creative brainstorming to outlast any other toy in our house. Here’s a bit of background info […]
With my kids home during the day and on the weekends during the summer, it’s hard for me to come up with fun activities and outings to keep them entertained while staying on budget. Parents, does this sound familiar? This summer the Philadelphia Museum of Art is kicking-off Art Splash, a new series of exhibitions, festivals, […]
My kids and I love to craft. Playdoh is always big in our house. We came across Floam thanks to Mamanista and couldn’t wait to see what we could create. Floam is a reusable molding compound that will keep you and your children creating endless possibilities for hours! Mold your floam into anything you can […]
As a blogger, I get a chance to see all of the hottest holiday toys at events such as Toy Fair, Time to Play and more. Here are a few of my favorite toys….
Summer is a great time for enrichment activities. Free from the daily grind of classes and homework, your child can explore his or her creative side.
Shop for art supplies on sale at local craft stores, or find wholesale arts and crafts supplies online at DollarDays. Many moms have a craft box (or craft closet) full of supplies to keep their kids occupied during school vacations and on rainy weekends.
I wasn’t bored much growing up. On rainy days and lazy Saturday afternoons, I’d be engaged in some craft project or interesting game. My mother, a teacher, has a gift for finding and organizing fun activities on a moment’s notice. Now that I’m a mom, I appreciate how easy she made it all look.
Some organized moms dedicate entire closets to craft supplies and keep file folders full of craft-ideas clipped from magazines and newspapers on-hand. But if that’s not your style, you can still entertain and educate your children with the fabulous art kits from Eye Can Art.
As an art lover, I’ve already started taking my children along to exhibits and I want to surround them with works that will stimulate their minds and deepen their appreciation of beauty. For our children’s rooms, we add in accent pieces on our own, like valances and stencils, and hang a professional work of art […]
The kitchen is the heart of the home. In most households, family life centers around the kitchen. It’s where we cook, eat, play and work. And kids like to be where the action is. (Need proof? I’m typing this blog post at my kitchen table while my son plays on the floor next to me with a […]
Imagine a toy that is reusable, suitable for toddlers, preschoolers, and school-aged children, rolls up for storage, and inspires creativity without any mess–and you’ll have Aquadoodle. My daughter will draw all day long, but she always wants a clean page. We save a few of her paintings, but mainly she just enjoys doodling. Since she […]
