Kids Crafts & Activities

My daughter and I love to create together. Whether it’s practicing writing words together, crafting or cooking, we always bond over the experience of working together and learning together. When I heard that Uncle Ben’s® was hosting the first ever...
I love a good project that will keep my kids busy for a while, let them use their imaginations and be positive for them developmentally. They love new things to play with. With that in mind I decided to create...
My kids love to paint. It's something that can entertain them for at least an hour and they really get into it. My daughter has painted on paper, plastic, scraps of wood and my kitchen table. My son has...
Tired of doing the same old thing when it comes to decorating your Easter eggs? So were we. This weekend we decorated Easter eggs in a way we created last year and it's so simple even my 20-month old...
By the time 6 p.m. rolls around I am dead tired. After working all day, making dinner, feeding the dog, doing dishes and a loud of laundry or two, I’m just done. Unfortunately, as a working mom that’s really...
My husband and I usually aren’t very into the Olympics. But for some reason this year, I’ve really been looking forward to it despite the fact that there seem to be problems around every turn in Brazil. (adsbygoogle...
What was the first book you remember reading on your own as a child? The first book I remember reading, and falling in love with, was The Boxcar Children. I remember diving into that series and being wrapped up in...
Nothing keeps my kids busier than water play. Seriously, my son will spend hours splashing around in the dog’s water bowl. I don’t let him, of course, but he goes for it every time it's on the floor. My...
I have to give my kids credit. They’re really good at listening to directions for a good ol’ craft project. My daughter has always been this way. She loves art and loves to keep busy with her hands. She’s always...
My son has been in speech therapy since August and while we’re there I love watching him work on the activities with his teacher and seeing things click in his head. Since he has responded so well to everything there...
Do you need an eggcellent egg decorating idea for Easter this year? Look no further than this fun project that kids of all ages will love. We actually did this project for the first time last year and the results...
When I started my garden three years ago it was something to take my mind off the business of life. I loved the idea of being able to nurture and grow my own food, and while I knew it...
Now that the kids are out of school and the warm days are here, finding ways to keep your kids busy can be challenging. Finding cost effective (free!) ways to keep them busy can be even more challenging. However, if...
It’s almost December and I can’t wait! I love the Christmas season. It is my favorite time of year. Everyone is happy and friendly. I love the music, the decorations and let’s not forget the food! ...
If your kids are anything like mine, they are already started making their Christmas wish lists. My daughter has been circling items she wants in the Target and Toys R' Us magazines, much like I did at her age....
When I was a child I would spend all day playing. During the summer months I would spend my waking hours outside, barely coming in to eat unless my mom forced me to or bribed me. During the colder...
