DIY: Plastic Egg Maracas

What do you do when you have four kids who have collected enough plastic Easter eggs to bury their sister alive? No really they did,  go here  to see Little Eco up to her eyeballs in rainbow colored eggs.

So we decided to make a little noise after finding this DIY craft. It's been a favorite around nursery schools and Vacation Bible School for years and we've put our own little twist on it yet again.


DIY: Earth Day Project: soda bottle bird feeder

In honor of celebrating Mother Earth the kiddos and I made a little something for our feathery friends.

Materials to make your re-purposed bird feeder:

  • one clean empty two liter plastic soda bottle with cap
  • one 2" long wood screw
  • 2 wire twist ties
  • a wood skewer or found wooden stick(must be straight enough to use for a perch)


DIY: Pool Noodle Race Track

It's Wednesday my favorite day of the week, when I was little it was the day my Dad took us for pizza when my Mom was at work, sometimes I still fell like a kid especially when were in the backyard holding matchbox derbies, we're so excited to  show you our latest summer fun project, we actually it can be used all year round and is great indoors too!

Start your engines!

DIY: Lego Bracklets

 Zen spends most of his day walking around the house looking for his Lego figures so for Christmas I decided to make him something that he could attach them to and hopefully not loose then as much anymore, I know wishful thinking.


DIY: Fun with Pretzels

First you'll need to get the bags of cotton candy(any flavor) they can purchased at any local grocery store, Walmart, ect. or you can rent a machine at your local party supply store. Since I have a commercial size Candy Floss cart I made ours by hand.***

The kits can be made ahead of time if you're using pre-package cotton candy.

DIY:Tibetan Prayer Flags

Today we finally hung up the art project the Peas worked on a few weeks ago at our public library. Our backyard is full of color and goodwill blowing in the wind. We learned about Tibetan people and how they traditionally use these prayer flags to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. The flags do not carry prayers to god, the Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space and the prayer flags are thought to bring benefit to all.
