DIY Stenciled Easter Basket

The other day I was looking for Easter baskets at Walmart.  There was no shortage!  They had Easter baskets in all sizes, materials, styles, and prices.  They ranged any where from $0.88 to over $5.00, and that's just for the basket.  As to be expected the fancier the basket the more expensive it was.  Well I didn't want to pay more that $5 for a cute little basket that had hundreds exactly like it, and of course the cheap plain ones just wouldn't do.  So I thought why not buy a cheap ...

Easter Paper Crafts for the Entire Family – Free Templates

If you haven't already heard our family loves holidays, we like to celebrate every single one.  Right now Easter's coming soon and we've been busy with various craft projects.  We've made pom pom bunnies and chicks, chick aviator hats and peek-a-boo bunny hats, and Easter plaques.  The last couple of days I fired up my Cricut Explore Air cutting machine to cut some Easter bunnies and eggs to use for our paper projects.  To add texture to the cardstock I used my cute little Sizzix Texture ...

DIY Pom Pom Bunnies & Chicks

Pom Poms are one of the easiest and cutest way to dress up holiday decor, clothing,  and gifts.  They make great add-ons to gift wrap and tags, banners, baskets, and more.  They are very inexpensive, specially if you make them at home using scraps of yarn.  Best of all they are so easy to make and are a great project to do with your kids. I love to add pom poms to my crochet hats, they make them super cute. But since it's Easter in a couple of weeks I've been making these adorable pom ...

Toddler Easter Party

Today Jett, my 2 year-old, threw his first Toddler Easter Party. It was a great turn out with 8 toddlers.  The party was about 2 hours long which was more than enough time for a bunch of toddlers to munch on some goodies, have an Easter egg hunt, and still have time to make a mess in Jett's playroom. Our menu revolved around Jett, which means it had to be allergy-friendly.  Jett has allergies to dairy, egg, and peanuts.  I also wanted to make everything toddler friendly, so we served ...

DIY Easter Plaque – Free Template

My daughter Jaime is planning an Easter Egg Hunt for her 2 year old son Jett, and some of his friends.  While shopping for supplies and decor for the party she ran across a cute cardboard Easter sign in one of the discount stores, it cost $12.  She liked the sign but thought $12 was a bit steep for a small cardboard sign.  When she told me about it I told her about one of my Easter projects, this DIY Easter Plaque.  I was going to send her one along with some other Easter items I've been ...

Aviator Chick Hat – Free Pattern

I love making aviator hats.  I just think they’re so cute.  They make great photo props for infants, toddlers, older kids, and even adults.  I’ve made them for girls and boys.  I made a slate colored one for my grandson Jett, and a hot pink one for my friend’s daughter Madeline.  They both look adorable. I decided my one year old grandson, Sadi, would look adorable in an Aviator Chick hat this Easter.  I had to make him an Easter hat too, after all I made a Peek-a-Boo Bunny hat for ...

Easter Egg Decorating Ideas

   Easter is this Sunday which means many of us will be spending Friday and Saturday dying Easter Eggs. All the discount and dollar stores are selling egg dying kits and many of us find it easier to just buy a kit and call it a day.  We've done this many times and somehow are always disappointed with how it turns out.  Our eggs never seem to look like the pictures on the box. Those kits really don't sell you anything more than 4 tablets or packets of food coloring, a flimsy wire ...
