Spider Web Sight Word Match

Inspired loosely by our giant sticky spider web made of tape, I made a spider web on the wall to have a little sight word match! Henry’s been diving into sight words in Kindergarten, and doing really well with them. To be honest, we haven’t done much sight word practice, other than reviewing the list […]

We’ve been all about spider webs lately [shh, there's another one coming next week too!], so we just had to make a fun spider craft for kids to make for Halloween too! The boys were begging me to do an activity once we opened our Pom Tree Kids package from our sponsor! [You have a chance to […]

Create a slimy experience for toddlers without the mess with a sensory bag! It’s a perfect sensory activity for Halloween. As well as perfect for all ages, including babies and toddlers!

Slimy Spaghetti Sensory Activity for Toddlers

Sensory activities are always fun for toddlers to do. They get to explore, and there’s never a right or wrong way to do it. A spaghetti sensory activity is perfect for Halloween because it’s oh-so-slimy! We turned The Imagination Tree’s bug slime spaghetti [eww!] into a sensory activity especially for Halloween with just a few colors! I […]

Apple Tree Craft for Toddlers

George and I made a very simple apple tree craft, one that toddlers can do! I’m so excited to be spending some extra one on one time with George lately now that Henry’s in kindergarten. George loves to create things. He’s the one that likes to cut, color, draw, and do all the fine motor […]

Spin Art Streamers: 4th of July Craft for Kids

Spin art is a classic, fun activity that kids absolutely love to create! But creating streamers as a 4th of July craft was the last thing on Henry’s mind. I tried for many days and many approaches to create these. Sometimes I just don’t win. Okay, a lot of times. Then, I saw a post from Adventures of the Smith […]

These are super easy candy bar wrappers that are a great Father’s Day craft for kids to make if their dad is a chocolate lover like ours is! Both grandpas and dad here absolutely love dark chocolate, so that’s usually their Father’s Day gift. This year, we spiced it up a bit with a little […]

Mother’s Day Craft for Kids to Make: Flower Cards

I am totally loving these flower cards the kids made for a Mother’s Day craft and gift for Grandma [and myself!]. In previous years, we’ve made bouquets of flowers for Grandma, and could have totally made these into a bouquet too. Instead though, we made homemade cards this time. The boys ask to paint all […]
