  • Shimmery Snowflakes

    December 12, 2014

    Another fun winter craft for you and your lil ones…SHIMMERY SNOWFLAKES! I love “winter” crafts because they can stay up to decorate our house a couple months longer than the “Christmas” ones.

  • Sensory Bottles for Baby

    November 19, 2014

    I’ve made sensory bottles for L before, filled with colored water, glue and glitter or colored water and oil, but I don’t know why we never made SENSORY BOTTLES FOR BABIES until now. Babies and toddlers both love them!   The water-filled bottles are fun to look at, but too heavy for WB to really handle safely. ...
