Patriotic Treats for Memorial Day

Memorial day is this weekend – with memorial day comes cook outs, get togethers, long weekends and patriotic celebrations. Of course, on Pinterest there are hundreds of red, white and blue treats. I have pinned so many, I thought I would pull together a few of my favorites! I plan on making some of these myself for our annual block party coming up!

Mother’s Day Kid’s Crafts

With Mother’s Day right around the corner (uh.. this weekend actually, better hurry and figure out what you’re doing!) I thought I would pull together some cute mother’s day toddler craft projects. Although, they may not be able to do any of these by themselves, and just maybe Dad isn’t too into crafts either – they would still all be fun projects to do with your child while spending the day together this Mother’s Day!

While searching Pinterest (of course!) the theme is very obvious for Mother’s Day — FLOWERS.

Handprint Easter Bunnies

Handprint Easter Bunnies: Easter Crafts

I don’t know about you, but I pin about 1,234 crafts for holidays on Pinterest and do about 5. There just are not enough hours in the day! But I’m trying to do more and more of them as Lennox gets older and a long attention span.

I love the handprint and footprint crafts, so I am trying to do them for the holidays now. I decided to try out the handprint bunnies! Lennox loves giving people cards and presents, so since we will be seeing almost all of the family for Easter, she wanted to give them all an Easter Card.

Here are some pictures from our Easter Handprint Bunny Card making! You just have them paint their hand and press it down on the paper (minus the thumb). If you can, have them keep a gap in the middle, that will help with the ears, but that is easier said than done with a little one with wiggly fingers!
