We’re kicking off thirty days of Halloween crafts with this super cute bat craft. You don’t have to get the knife to make a cute Halloween pumpkin. Here’s our no-carve pumpkin idea that only requires paint, googly eyes and construction paper.

If you’re like me, you don’t exactly look forward to holidays where people are prone to pump kids with sugar. A little candy is fun… a lot of candy makes tots go wild! We’re doing non-candy valentines for my son’s little friends this year, particularly because most of them are four years old and under. (Friends, you can thank me later.) Of course, the Dollar Tree has lots of low-cost goodies that won’t give you cavities, so here’s a printable to use with their fish stickers. These could also work for boat stickers, goldfish crackers, toy boats, or any other marine-related toy or snack. [Read more…] about You’re a Great Catch – Free Printable for Valentine’s Day
Ever since the holiday season started, our three-year-old has turned into a little party animal. He wants to stay up late and sleep in late–pretty much a teenager in a three-year-old’s body. So, before we get back to our normal routine, we decided to let him ring in the new year with us this year. And you can’t ring in 2015 without making a LOT of noise. Here’s an easy New Year’s Eve noisemaker using materials that you already have on hand from the holidays.
