Back in the old days of my blog, I wrote frequently about homeschooling, crafts, and activities to do with your kids. In the past couple of years, I have pivoted somewhat and now write much more on physical and mental health, but that does not mean I no longer homeschool (I do) or craft (I do) or do lots of fun activities with my kids (I do that too).

Cute Popsicle Stick Easter Bunny Craft

When I was a little girl, my mom made this adorable bunny out of popsicle sticks and gave them as gifts to everyone she knew. I know she kept one for herself because my sister found it in her things, and I know she gave one to Old Grandma because she still has hers, too.

Materials: A heavy pair of scissors Two empty toilet paper tubes A roll or two of fancy duct tape – A note about the tape in the … Read more

Invitation to Craft – Making Valentines

No creativity is required (unless you designed your craft to begin with, but especially if you are copying a picture in a magazine or on a blog). Sure, you use your scissor skills, and you may notice how the colors are complementary or analogous, but you haven’t exercised your imagination. Sometimes, that’s important. Sometimes, you want to create a mailbox and a certain set of steps are required. You can’t just give your kids a … Read more
