I added a pink hat, cotton ball, stickers, and pipe cleaner glasses. Add strips of white paper to Santa’s face and set your child loose to give Santa a trim. You […]

Holiday baking doesn’t have to be super involved! These Peppermint Bark Brownies are super easy, but a fun, festive treat! To make them, simply prepare a batch of your favorite brownies, crumble up some peppermint bark and sprinkle into the batter before baking. Once they’ve baked, I like to sprinkle some crushed candy canes on […]

I fall into both boats and when putting together my girl’s baskets realized I needed a few more items but decided to challenge myself to make them with what […]

Easter may look a little different for your family this year, everything seems a little bit different from the norm right now. And that’s ok. We will get through this time and there will be Easter egg hunts with friends and family in the future. I’m trying to work on embracing the change and focus […]

Can’t stop with the St.Patrick’s Day Lucky Charm treats around here! These are so easy! Either make or buy vanilla donuts (I make vegan donuts using this recipe) and then I heat up some store-bought vanilla frosting and drizzle it on top, topping with Lucky Charms! I find that the store-bought frosting keeps much better […]

So these aren’t really candy necklaces, more like sugary cereal necklaces but they were so much fun to make with the girls! Start by having your kids sort colored cereal (ours is from the Dollar Store) by color and then thread onto a piece of yarn or twine. I taped the end of the yarn […]
