HAPPY PUMPKIN FAMILY is
One of my favorite #funeasyinexpensivekidscrafts for #Halloween. You also are #reusing some of the items from around your house! My favorite thing to do when making crafts. I thought I would share again. As it is already October and we have already started on our #HappyHalloween decorating.
I love #Halloween!
I love the childhood memories of picking a character for a costume (my mother made many of mine from scratch), dressing up and trick or treating. The memories of #Halloween have changed for me over the years and now as a mother myself, #Halloween has become fun again!
My #Halloweencraft today is easy, fun and inexpensive, Happy Pumpkin Family.
For all you moms out there that say you can't be crafty, think again. You can with a few products and some you might already have on hand. All of my best, Dyan
All you need is: paper towel roll, scissors, orange paint, paint brush, green tissue paper, black marker, googley eyes and a hot glue gun.
Cut the paper towel holder in 3 parts- small, medium and large.
Paint with the orange paint. Let dry.
Tear off green tissue paper, stuff in top of holder and twist a stem.
Glue eyes on with hot glue gun or other glue.
And make a nose and a mouth with black marker.
That's it! #Funeasyinexpensivekidcraft.
#Whatwelearned: Your child learns to think creatively by finding items around the house, strengthens hands for writing by painting and drawing mouths and noses.
#Whatweshared: lots of fun painting and creating our pumpkin faces, and making our first home made #Halloween decoration and a fun memory!

Don't know what to do with those uneaten hard boiled #Eastereggs still in your fridge? Instead of throwing them away, have another #Easteregg hunt, just for fun! Then throw them away. We typically do our traditional #Easteregg hunt with plastic eggs. No one really ever eats the hard boiled eggs, so we always do an "after" #Easteregg hunt with the colored ones. I feel at least we do get another use from all the time spent decorating the eggs, instead of just throwing the pretty eggs away. My daughter loves it and I don't feel as wasteful.
Will this be the last #Easteregg hunt of the year for us? Doubtful, we do them all the time. My daughter loves to hide them by herself and then have a pretend egg hunt. I hide them for her too. It is a great way for her to entertain herself, which being a only kid sometimes gets tough for her to do. She fills them up with different items from around the house, coins, fuzzy wuzzies, any trinkets she can find and hides them. It is a great way to have fun through out the year and to stimulate pretend play. So, will this be our last #EasterEgg hunt of the year? Absolutely not!! Have fun hiding those eggs whether real or pretend and may your children have fun finding them. All my best, Dyan
What we learn: Other uses for our once a year toys or games therefore instilling reuse, creativity, sizing objects...what will fit in what size egg, practice opening and closing the eggs learning patience...sometimes the plastic eggs are not so easy to close.
What we share: Inexpensive fun game time, a shared activity and plain #oldfashioned fun!

Happy New Year to you!!
As I regroup and get acclimated to 2016, please enjoy this repost on Making New Years Resolutions with your kids.
May 2016 bring you all you want...
May your days be filled with blessings...
May you make #newyearsresolutions that you can keep for yourself and your kids.
All of my best to you in this new year! Dyan
Like many of you, I have made numerous New Years Resolutions over the years that I have never stuck to. Last Year was the first year that I actually made one resolution and stuck to it! Now, looking back it was an easy one and one that I should of been doing anyway...flossing my teeth every night. That being said, I still felt a major sense of accomplishment by years end. I was happy that I made a commitment to myself and my health and my dentist was thrilled! This year?? Another year of flossing every night for me (which is habit by now) and for my New Years resolution for 2013? Flossing, every night, for my 5 year old daughter. After all, it is our job as moms to teach our children good habits in life. As you think of a New Years resolution make it something worth accomplishing and easy for you to accomplish so at years end you can and will succeed!
What I learned from this: I can do something for myself and take the time to take that extra step to feel better and healthier. I can add new habits to my already hectic schedule. I can change something small in my life and make a huge difference for my health.
What my daughter will learn: healthy teeth habits, taking care of herself feels great and flossing can be fun! I already have a song written about using mouth wash to prevent cavities, next up.... a flossing song. Good luck! Dyan
