Make a Thankful Tree with your Child this Thanksgiving

Make a Thankful Tree with your Child this Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving (and really, the entire month of November) is a great time to reflect on what we are thankful for in our lives.

Easy and Fun Halloween Spider Craft for Toddlers

Easy and Fun Halloween Spider Craft for Toddlers

Fall is so much fun and opens you up to a ton of great activity ideas, so I decided to try a quick and simple craft for Halloween with my toddler. I picked spider as our theme since he loves the song “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” and I figured it would be an easy craft to make. We actually did this one when he was home sick one Monday, as it helped cheer us both up. I love all things Halloween, so getting a bit silly and crafty with my son is perfect and fun for both of us.   […]
