Target Gift Card Printable – Teacher Appreciation

Teacher Appreciation is right around the corner and sometimes it’s difficult to express the depth of gratitude and respect I have for my children’s teachers. Even on my kids’ worst days I see the care and concern their teachers have for them and it literally brings tears to my eyes. Maybe I’m more emotional than others out there, but when holidays and special occasions like Teacher Appreciation roll around, I want to do my part in thanking them and letting {Read More}

“Moon” Dough

The “we need some color” saga continues at our house. These days we’ve been forced to stay around home due to the beautiful weather (sarcasm). And when I say “around,” I mean “in” the house. I decided to whip up some homemade “moon” dough. It’s really a cross between Moon Dough and Play-Doh. I like it because it’s made with only three ingredients: 3-in-1 wash, corn starch and food coloring. I decided on the 3-in-1 wash because I love how {Read More}

Garbage Disposal Tablets

This post may include affiliate links. Please see my disclosure.  I adore my garbage disposal. Until about three years ago, I was putting raw garbage into old shopping bags, tying the handles and taking it out to the garage to put in our large waste bin. I couldn’t stand having it in the garbage in the kitchen. Raw garbage stinks within hours (sometimes minutes), causing you to have to change garbage bags over and over. When we got our disposal, everything changed. {Read More}

Illuminated Snow Scene in a Jar

   As a child I loved snow globes. It’s like a little magical place inside of a jar. To this day, I have an admiration for anything glass with something cute or beautiful inside it. And it’s not only the glass and the scene inside. . . if it’s lit, it’s even more magical. Today I’m going to show you how you can make your very own illuminated snow scene right inside of a mason jar. I have to say that when I thought of this, {Read More}

Goldfish Soap-in-a-Bag Tutorial

  The kids’ birthday party is next weekend. Both of my kids have birthdays in the fall and this year I decided to have one party for family and friends instead of attempting one for each of them. They were ok with it and that made me a happy mom. Don’t get me wrong, I love entertaining, but this year has been a little crazier than normal and I’m excited about throwing a bigger party to celebrate both of their special days. {Read More}

Homemade Bubble Solution

After a long winter, one of the things that gets me excited for the months ahead is when the stores start stocking their shelves with bubble solution, water toys and all sorts of colorful “play things” for spring and summer. My toddler was REALLY into bubbles this year and my 4 1/2 year old is starting to take an interest in science experiments and the like. I didn’t want just “any” bubbles this year though. I wanted to impress my {Read More}
