DIY Valentine’s Day Lei Wreath #orientaltrading #kidfriendly #kidcrafts

As an Oriental Trading Ambassador, I am provided with products to facilitate some of my crafting posts. I do not earn affiliate commissions through any of the links in this post. A quick snowstorm dropped about an inch of snow on us last night, and I spent the evening hours rearranging our lesson plans for today to accommodate the snow. I couldn't expect the girls to sit down calmly at their desks working on worksheets all morning with the elusive white stuff outside calling their names! After all, snow is usually a once or twice a year treat around here. So, we spent the morning enjoying … [Read more...]

Lovely Candy Company Gluten Free and Peanut Free Stocking Stuffers

A trip to any local store, and you will see they all carry one particular type of product during the holiday season...sweets! Whether it be chocolate, candy, or confections, we are surrounded by sweets not just during the holidays, but year round. Unfortunately, many of those yummy treats are also full artificial things that aren't very healthy. Some can be downright harmful to someone with a peanut allergy or other health problems. The Lovely Candy Company just launched two new product lines that make great tasting stocking stuffers, Honey Gummies, and Dark Chocolate Honey … [Read more...]

Budget-Friendly Toys and Stocking Stuffers for Multiple Children

I am a proud Oriental Trading Ambassador and receive products to facilitate my posts. All opinions are my own. Each Christmas we have a family gathering at my grandparents' house for Christmas lunch. Everyone in our extended and ever-growing family comes home for the holidays to celebrate together. I love spending the holidays with so many family members, catching up, enjoying each other's company, and exchanging gifts. We play a gift exchange game among the adults, and everyone brings a gift for each child. As much as I love shopping for the kids, the cost can quickly surpass my budget if … [Read more...]

The Perfect Curated Candle Gift: Vellabox

I was provided with promotional products from Vellabox to facilitate my post. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around here! Ben and the girls spent the afternoon hanging our outdoor lights while I worked inside to finish up my own Christmas decor. I finished well before they did, so I took advantage of the kid-free time which doesn't happen often these days. I lit a Burn S'more Toasted Graham Cracker candle from my latest Vellabox, curled up with a book, and relaxed. It was such a nice moment, even if I did only make it through 2 pages of my book before I had hungry kids running … [Read more...]

Halloween Crafting Ideas

I am an Oriental Trading Ambassador and receive products to facilitate my posts. All opinions are my own. The girls have been begging for an art activity with painting, so Saturday was art day. I have been wanting to make a Halloween wreath for our barn door. We decorate the barn as a (not so scary) Haunted House for the littles each year, but the entry door is always lacking. I thought what better way to keep the girls occupied while I craft than to have their own Halloween projects? I have been planning this activity day for a few weeks, and it was so easy to order all the supplies we … [Read more...]
