Last week my oldest turned FIVE (all the feels)! And as many five year olds are, he is completely LEGO obsessed. If your house is anything like mine, then you likely have a zillion tiny LEGO pieces scattered allllll over the place. My son carries his LEGOS with him everywhere. He also sits down to build them anywhere. This means at the breakfast table, in the playroom, in his bedroom, and even in the car. This drives my type A personality just a tad bit crazy! I was originally at a loss as to what to get him for his 5th birthday, when all of a sudden it hit me – a LEGO table! Not only was this something I knew he’d absolutely love, but it was also a solution to the never ending LEGO maze around the house. Because this was such a much needed item in our house, I wanted to share how we made our LEGO table in the hopes of helping other LEGO loving families!
We have been soaking up the final days of our summer vacation. And even though I am slightly sad to see summer end, I am eagerly awaiting fall. To get my kids excited about fall (and back-to-school), I put together this apple cloud dough activity bin for them to play with over the weekend. Cloud dough is an awesome sensory activity for toddlers & preschoolers. It’s a great boredom buster and is quick to make, too! And the best part about it? It actually smells like apple pie! Spoiler alert: it’s messy but loads of fun!
This summer continues to fly by! Now that August is just a few days away, we are slowly but surely gearing up for back-to-school! As you may have read in my previous post, my 4.5 year old is starting Pre-K this year, so I am doing everything I can to savor his last year of preschool. Now that our summer activity schedule has slowed down a bit, we’ve been able to spend more time crafting at home. For this week’s craft, I wanted to create a spin on the basic popsicle stick picture frame and do something special for back-to-school. So, I came up with this popsicle stick schoolhouse picture frame craft – perfect for your little ones’ 1st day of preschool (or kindergarten) photo!
Even though summer officially arrived a few weeks ago, it’s not too late to make a summer bucket list for your family! This past weekend we sat down together and compiled a list of things we want to do this summer. It was fun to get our 4 year old involved in making this list and hearing what he wanted to do during summer break.

If you have small children then you know dining out isn’t exactly the same experience as it was back in the pre-baby days. It’s often times chaotic, frustrating, and just plain loud. But, there are ways to make it easier for both kids and parents. It’s all about preparation and keeping them BUSY!
Today I’m going to show you how to put together a simple busy bag for your toddler and/or preschooler. No crafting or lengthy prep work needed!
