Record ‘Balloons’ With Silhouette

I immediately fell in love with this silhouette of a little girl holding balloons, which are actually records. I thought it was such an adorable idea for a wall. I knew I wanted something with some musical inspiration for the space I was working on, and when I found this on Pinterest, I knew right away what I was going to do!

Literary Sign Post

 

I have seen many versions of delightful storybook and literary locale sign posts floating around Pinterest for years and have of course wanted to make my own for ages. But really our place is done, there is not an inch to spare. But when I took on the challenge of turning a portable at my daughter’s school into a fun and inviting multi purpose space, I knew I finally had just the excuse I needed!!

D.I.Y Rock Pillows

A plethora of soft, beautiful, stuffed rocks piled this way and that, in a big tumbling pile, is what I was picturing in the reading corner. Kids lounging and reading on large rock pillows and tossing little rocks (pillows) at each other.

Little Snowman Heads

I needed an easy-peasy treat for Peyton’s class to wish them all a nice winter break before we flew the coop early for Florida. I have seen variations of these snowman heads floating around the internet for some time, so on the way home from our errands we pulled into the grocery store and grabbed a couple packs of mini powdered donuts. They were destined to become snowmen for the class. Continue reading Little Snowman Heads

Kids Marshmallow Tea Cup Treats

As summer wraps up, we try to celebrate and get every last drop of warmth from the last few weeks of the season. This year we had an end of summer garden tea party at my mother-in-laws. Our kids plus their cousins were very happy to dress up and have tea in the garden. But of course the ideas started flying as soon as the words came out of my mouth about what epic treats each of my girls could make to contribute to such an occasion. Before I was covered in nothing but a tornado of pink frosting, sprinkles and tears (at the five layer cake someone was proposing), I presented the idea of marshmallow tea cups.

Apple Shaped Rice Krispie Treats

 

A smooth start to September is all one can hope for with all the excitement and nerves our little ones can throw at us over the beginning of a new school year. But once the dust settles after those first few days (and before I embark on the mountain of forms and paperwork sent my way), I thought a small treat to welcome everyone back and to their new class might be appreciated. So in step these little apple treats!
