Washi Tape School Supplies

Hello! It’s me again. I’m back for day two of Washi Week, and today’s topic is school supplies! So, whether it’s pencils, notebooks, binder clips, scissors, or just a strip along a binder, it’s bound to be cute with washi tape on it. (If you haven’t read yesterday’s, you can click HERE to read it.) Here are some of the pencils I made. They look cute, don’t they?! All I did was use a strip…

Washi Tape Cards

Hi! I’m Halley, and I’m here for Washi Week. Since I know many people have absolutely no idea what washi tape is, let me explain: washi tape is decorative paper tape that comes in SO many different sizes and prints, and you can do just about anything with it. I am basically the expert of washi tape in the family. I can’t tell you how much I love this stuff. I may or may not…

Altoid Tin Magnetic Playset Tutorial

This was a craft project that I had been wanting to do for a long time. It took awhile to empty one of those Altoid tins because it was well hidden in my purse and they are so curiously strong that the kids won’t steal and eat them all in one sitting even if they do find them. My mom also donated a few to the cause, so we were finally able to craft with…

Scrapbook Paper Picture Frame Tutorial

April is generally the craft month for our MOPS group. We wanted to come up with something that every mom could use… picture frames! At the March meeting we set up a photo booth with two background choices: an aqua sheet thumbtacked to the divider with THIS pink and yellow bunting or a navy sheet thumbtacked to the divider with some yellow stars that are part of our “Starry Eyed” meeting decor. They were simple,…

Egg Letter Matching Activity

I like to make sure that my children are able to occupy themselves. It is how I get things done around here and a good life skill for them. With only one at home this year, it has been challenging. She can get really clingy. “Mommy, take a nap with me!” really means come lay with me while I talk your ear off and keep annoyingly touching your face. She is such a tease because…

Felt Penguin Dress-Up Busy Bag

A few weeks ago I was talking to my sister about how to keep the kids occupied when you are trying to get something accomplished that requires a little more concentration and brain power- like taxes. One thing that I like to do is to keep certain toys and activities out of reach so that they have that novelty factor when I do pull them out. It can be puzzles, play-doh, or a box of…

Easy Mason Jar Snow Scenes

The girls and I had a “craft day” over winter break. Christmas flew by in a blur and we still had a lot of craft projects that were still just big ideas and a pile of supplies. Honestly, some of the supplies were several years old because this seems to happen every year. One of the things that I wanted to make was a “waterless” snow globe decoration. The little plastic deer and bottle brush…

DIY I Spy Bottles

I have so many crafty things to share on the blog, but I just haven’t had time to edit pics and type up posts. I don’t things will ever settle down around here. Here is another MOPS craft projects. We did this at our open gym gathering. Usually the kids just run loose and we can chat while we let them burn some energy. I just set up a table off to the side with this…
