DIY FELT BOARD & FELT FARM ANIMALS!

How cute is this felt farm?! Giovanni LOVES animals, so I figured he would love this activity. Turns out he just loves making each animal sound as he pulls it off the board & throws it onto the floor… haha. He does love the tractor but he’s not quite in that “imaginative stage” yet where he’s […]

RAINBOW RICE WITHOUT VINEGAR!

I’ve been wanting to make this with Gio for a few weeks now & I kept putting it off because we’ve been doing other projects. This morning I saw the bag of rice & said, “Ok, we’re doing it!” Look how cool it looks!!! \ I made our DIY rainbow rice with no vinegar. Not quite sure why people even use vinegar in […]

DIY OWL COSTUME

How cute is the DIY owl costume!? I made this 2 years ago for Gio, & now it fits Gabi! When I made this, we lived in Florida, so I got a little creative & wanted to do something that was a full body outfit. The hood & cape are both detachable by snaps so […]

DIY BABY TURTLE COSTUME

Last year, we knew we wanted to make Giovanni a turtle for Halloween. He used to do this thing where he’d put his top lip over his bottom & we’d call it “turtle lippin’,” haha. He’d be turtle lippin’ if he didn’t have so many Cheerio’s in his mouth, haha. & since he was conceived in […]

DIY NO SEW TEEPEE!

Over the years I’ve seen DIY Teepees on Pinterest & I knew if we ever had space for a playroom I was definitely making one. I like the idea of having a cute little place to read books or just chill out. When we finally decided to turn our spare room into a playroom, this was first […]

DIY FALL WREATH!

It’s Fall, y’all! & even though it’s 90 degrees here in Florida (seriously!), we’re still celebrating with some festive decorations! I originally told myself, “Ok, there’s no need to DIY a wreath… Fall decor is 50% off at Hobby Lobby. I’ll save myself some time & just buy one.” But when I got there, I […]

DIY SENSORY TABLE

I’ve been wanting to get Gio a sensory table for soooo long! I  wanted a nice, sturdy wooden one like the one I had in my classroom as a preschool teacher… but those run upwards of $200 & I just couldn’t bring myself to spend that knowing I could probably DIY it for much less… […]

HOW TO FIX BROKEN MAKEUP!

Let’s face it, broken makeup is just plain sad… Especially if it was expensive makeup!! Eye shadow, bronzer, pressed powder, blush, you name it… I’ve broken them all at some point. I only wish I knew how to save them back then, instead of just tossing them out. All you need is ONE household ingredient: rubbing alcohol. So let’s get started! […]
