Show mom and a teacher you appreciate them!

Shout out to all you wonderful teachers out there! It’s Teacher Appreciation week and we found a great craft that can be personalized and is so easy to do. Adora is 4 and really had a blast painting this little heart box and top and a mug for her teachers. She was fascinated with watching the mug bake and seeing the colors darken. It was like our own little kiln 🙂 I got both kits at Michael’s. With Mother’s Day around the corner, it’s really a quick easy craft for the kiddos to do!

Getting into the Spooky Spirit

Call it commercialism but I’m a true sucker for holidays. To me it’s another reason to celebrate something and now that I have kids it’s even more fun. I enlisted the help of my 2 1/2 year old in decorating for Halloween. A quick trip to Michael’s and we were set. If you’re into DIY holidays… then be sure to check out all the cool ideas here on Pinterest. Meanwhile, here’s a look at our quick creepy decor job.

I put a couple of these hologram portraits up. They look normal..until…




Nothing says I love you like bloody roses


This guy glows in the dark. Adora told me “this not scary, this silly”


This was Adora’s favorite part! Putting the sticky bloody goo on the TV console


Notice the pumpkins beautifully embellished by mom’s sharpies from work


Covered the ottoman with a web tablecloth and stuck some spiders on it


I spy “It’s a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown” (still love that show)


Really cute Spider fascinator! She complained the legs were tickling her face.


The dirty work


The toughest part? Making her wait a day for the glue to dry before she could pick up Miss Pumpkin.


Craft pumpkins are great because you can just stick holes in them and insert pipe cleaners or embellishments like this little bat. We glued the spider on too.
