DIY Teepee Kids Craft and Centerpiece

Thanksgiving Kids Table Ideas 2

Easy Indian Native American DIY Teepees Centerpiece idea for #Thanksgiving from @PaigngSupermom #ShutterflyDecor

These adorable teepees are made from just plain, white paper and toothpicks — they really couldn’t be easier. I made them with my youngest son when he was feeling a bit under the weather and had to stay home from school.

Make Your Own Shoe Decals

Catch Me If You Can Vans

We had so much fun using our Cricut Explore to create the iron-on decals for our girl’s leggings project that we couldn’t resist whipping up something for the boys too. These text decals are a subtle but totally rad way to dress up a pair of canvas shoes.

You could write your child’s name, or any favorite quote or phrase. Inspired by our slightly rambunctious boys, whom we’re always chasing after, we made “Catch Me If You Can” decals.

We couldn’t decide whether we liked better the regular wording or the leftover strip peeled off from around the words — so we used both! We’re very curious which way you prefer, so please leave a comment below and let us know.

DIY Knee-Patch Leggings

Flower Star Patch Leggings Cricut 1

My Cricut Explore has been pretty busy this week as we are preparing for my sister’s wedding Friday. (Yes things are utter chaos around here right now!) But we were invited to participate in the Cricut Design Space Star challenge, and with summer travels we missed the first round of projects. We really wanted to get into the game this month so we took a quick break from wedding stuff to bring you this fun Knee-Patch legging tutorial.

Books Alive: Fox in Socks

Fox In Socks Make Puppets1

So happy to have Jess from Craftiness is Not Optional visiting today. She brought along a super-darling craft that goes with a book I’m betting you know and love.

If you have kids (or even if not!) you’ve probably read a few Dr. Suess books. Or many of them… we have a whole stack! (I prefer the board books, honestly, they’re shorter haha! I’m not much of an “out loud” reader.) Anyways, the rhyming words of Fox In Socks has always made my girls giggle, so I knew my book for the Books Alive Summer Reading Series had to be this one.

Also, foxes are so cute! Going along with the socks theme, I decided to make some fox sock puppets. (I felt very clever… heehee)

We Heart Mom Coloring Banner

Mothers Day Banner 8

We shared this We Heart Daddy banner before, and now our kids wanted a Mom version.

How cute is this FREE Mother's Day Banner that kids can color from @PagingSupermom

Of course this banner is perfect for Mother’s Day, but we have an inkling they might be planning to make it to welcome us home from SNAP conference. We had actually created the Dad banner not for Father’s Day but to welcome Dad home from a trip — we always miss Dad when he’s away. Come to think of it, we actually now have a Welcome Home banner too — clearly we love banners! The great thing about banners are that you get a big bang with just a few pieces of paper.

Inside Out Free Printables + Movie Review

Inside Out Party Ideas 7

Last week my girls and I saw an advanced screening of Disney/Pixar’s new Inside Out. We all loved the movie, and it’s really saying something when both my 4 year old and me enjoy a show so much we can’t wait to see it again. Afterwards, my girls and I brainstormed Inside Out party ideas and crafts over ice cream. Our favorite idea was this “Jar of Joy.”
