I shared last week that we just go back from another trip from Walt Disney World. I do love being a mom of boys, but one of the things that I miss out on with only boys is the love of Disney Princesses. It’s just hard for boys to get quite as into Aurora, Cinderella, Elsa and Belle the way I see little girls doing. And there are so many amazing Disney Princesses now– like Moana, which is now out on DVD (affiliate link)! Sometimes, even if I don’t have little princesses at home, I’ve got to enjoy the prince magic, so I decided to create a Moana Felt Flower Headband using my Cricut Explore Air and Cricut Design Space. I made it look a bit like a tropical plumeria flower, rather than an orchid. (Interestingly, while it’s the flower I thought of from the movie, I’m not sure it grows in Hawaii.)
It’s almost St. Patrick’s Day, and there is something about this magical day that delights children.
Maybe it’s the gold coins and leprechauns? Gold and glitter are two items that are sure to delight all children. In case you are looking for a few craft ideas that you can make with your children, both school-aged and preschoolers, look no further. I’ve gathered together a collection of more than 20 St. Patrick’s Day Kid Craft ideas that are sure to please your littlest Leprechauns!
Last year as a Teacher Appreciation gift, I made a homemade sugar scrub, and then one year I made lavender sachets. This year, I decided to make some relaxing homemade bath salts. I’ve made a few versions of bath salts before, but this year I used dried lavender as a primary ingredient. I’m pleased with how these turned out, and the jars that I found at Target along with the personalized gift tags I made with my Cricut Explore Air, really made me proud of how the jar of homemade bath salts turned out. If you’d like to make some for yourself, here’s how.
A few months ago, I shared the “recipe” that I have been using for the DIY Homemade Handsoap that we’ve been using in our house. However, I’m a person who is prone to developing extremely dry and cracked skin during the winter. And crafting with glues and paints, and all of the messes that the little boys means that I wash my hands a lot, so they get dried out even easier. When we started running out of our current batch of hand soap, I decided to make some more DIY moisturizing hand soap for the winter that had a greater proportion of enriching carrier oils.

My Monkey loves Transformers. Well, not all the Rescue BotsTransformers, but he’s wild about , which are perfect for little hands. Even the Peanut enjoys these Rescue Bots. Well, we’ve got a lot of them, and one day the Monkey decided that he wanted to store them in this large plastic Animal Cracker Container. And I’m willing to do anything that will encourage a 4- and 2-year-old to organize and pick up. When he started putting them all into this container, I decided to make it a bit more in style for his cool Rescue Bots by using an image that I downloaded from the internet and uploading it into Cricut Design Space to create the Monkey’s very own Upcycled Transformer Logo Container.
