Move over Elf, There’s a Turkey on Your Tail

Turkey on the Table

Fall is here and we couldn’t be more excited. I love the season of chunky knit sweaters and high boots (side note, coveting the suede over the knee boots that are everywhere, you?) But what I really love about this time of year is it always feels like the perfect time to get back to a consistent family schedule of school and activities. Plus, Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday of the year. I love everything about it—the food, the decor, the traditions and the time to be home and grateful for the simple things. (more…)

Crafts For Kids Who Love Little Critters

Making Memories with Play-Doh

Play-Doh Town

One of my own favorite childhood memories is sitting around the table, playing with Play-Doh. I want to recreate that special feeling with my kids and use it as an opportunity to play with them, see their imaginations soar and get them to open up a bit more—something more than our “How was school today?” “Ummm, okay” routine.

The holidays are approaching quickly, and we love coming up with festive activities and crafts for hands-on projects with our littles. Our kids love to craft, and instead of our typical cookie decorating, we decided to change things up a bit. We love to design printables, so we came up with a printable paper placemat and thought it would be super fun to decorate them with one of our favorite go-to candy selections—Airheads. (more…)
