Movember

Walrus Paper Plate Craft I have always thought that Movember was a really neat idea because it isn’t like your classic fundraiser, but up until junior high I didn’t even know it existed. It is important for kids to be able to participate in events like this at a young age so they are inspired to stay involved at an […] Continue reading →

Paper Lantern Crafts

Veterans Day Paper Lantern Over the past week I have been going to town on a new holiday craft idea that my mom had, paper lantern crafts. Until now I never realized how many different holidays there are. From Christmas to Hanukah, summer to winter and even Earth day to St Patrick’s day there are heaps of holidays and special times of the […] Continue reading →

Bath Salts

Bath Salt Containers This craft would make an excellent homemade gift for a relative! Some of the ingredients are a bit unusual, like the glycerin or the Epsom salts. They are available at most drugstores but can be a bit tricky to find; I found them in the aisle with the rubbing alcohol. The nice thing about this […] Continue reading →

Pumpkin Carving

Pumpkins On The Porch And Kaitlyn In Her Pirate Costume Halloween is such a great time of the year! Costumes, candy, pumpkin carving, trick or treating, handing out candy. The works! So many awesome things combined to make an amazing holiday! My favourite part about Halloween aside from the fact that we get heaps of candy, is the pumpkin carving! Every year me and my dad carve […] Continue reading →

I find that the hardest part about my parents birthday is finding the perfect birthday present! Of course when I was younger it wasn’t nearly as difficult; I would simply go shopping […] Continue reading →

Pencil Case And Stationary This has been my first week back at school after the summer and I have to say everything went really smoothly! I spent a good amount of time organizing all of my binders and notebooks during the last week of summer so that I can keep a calm head when the school year really gets started. […] Continue reading →

Paper Mache Animals

Paper Mache Penguins I’ve spent the past week making adorable paper Mache animal crafts. At times it was a bit challenging but it was definitely worth it because they all turned out to be extremely cute! I suggest that if you are planning to make these crafts as piñata’s for a birthday party you give yourself about a week. Paper Mache takes […] Continue reading →

Paper Plate Echidna

Paper Plate Echidna In Zoo This craft is absolutely adorable and very fun to make! Rather than just an average paper plate craft there is the extra component of cutting the fringe around the paper plate to represent the spikes; it is also quite simple for a paper plate craft because the template pieces are straight forward and relatively easy […] Continue reading →
