Spring showed itself here recently, with lots of sun and a few warm days.  It’s really put Bubbles and I in the mood for fun spring crafts.  So we went through my craft supplies and decided to make some clothespin crafts.

These clothespin crafts are a fun and easy kids craft. Check out how to make these cute dragonfly and caterpillar clothespin critters!

Bubbles loves any project that calls for googly eyes so we decided to make some clothespin dragonflies and clothespin caterpillars.  We had so much fun with them that next on our list will be some clothespin butterflies, too. Continue reading »

I have a little confession.  I think I enjoy playing with DIY slime nearly as much as Bubbles does.  It’s relaxing and a good way to de-stress.

We could use a little de-stressing around here, since everyone’s been sick on and off for the last couple of months.  That means we’re also a little behind on our crafting which is something Bubbles and I love to do together. Continue reading »

Disney’s The BFG was my surprise hit of 2016.  The story is a childhood favorite for many, so I expected the movie to be good. What I didn’t expect was for it to be great – which it was.

We only live a short distance away from Bubbles’ school so I drop her off in the mornings and pick her up at night.  By the time she gets to the car it’s around 3:50 and the door barely closes behind her when she asks for a snack.

Bubbles has always been a little bit of a slow eater, and they don’t get a lot of time for lunch at school.  There have been plenty of times she’s got in the car and said she only had time to eat part of her meal.  And as she doesn’t get hungry so much as she gets hangry, I’ve learned to keep snacks with me at pretty much all times.
