While we try to spend as much time as we can outdoors in the summer, where we live we tend to get a lot of thunderstorms and the humidity can get a bit out of control, so I love having fun summer-inspired sensory play activities like this Watermelon Play Dough ready for the kids. (Next […]
Today, I’m excited to share with you my mom’s 10-minute Cinnamon Buns recipe. These are from-scratch cinnamon buns but they are a bit different than my usual cinnamon buns recipe which uses yeast and is a bit more time-consuming. These cinnamon buns can be whipped together in 10 minutes (plus baking time) and are perfect […]
OK, so just in case you didn’t know, we are a total Disney family. I don’t usually wear anything Disney in my day-to-day life, but you better believe I get Disney-ed whenever we’re at the parks, so I’m pretty excited at this new Alice Through the Looking Glass collection from Kohl’s and couldn’t wait to share […]
For our recent Teddy Bear Picnic, there was one show-stopping feature on the table that already has readers begging for the recipe! Our Honey Layer Cake is a unique and delicious dessert to add to your kids’ kitchen repertoire. Miss G wanted to make a honey cake for the teddy bear picnic because of Winnie the Pooh’s […]
Miss G is turning into quite the little party planner – she comes by it honestly – and her most recent idea was to host a Teddy Bear Picnic for our daycare kids! What resulted was a quick and easy Teddy Bear Picnic that you can whip up with your kids in an afternoon. The inspiration […]
One of our post popular posts on Sugar, Spice & Glitter is our 40 Mom-Daughter Date Ideas for Every Budget, and I’ve been itching to create a list of grandmother-granddaughter dates, too.
My mom suffers from the beginning stages of Arthritis, which could really affect how active of a grandparent she is. Today, I’m really excited to team up with Advil as part of National Arthritis Month to raise awareness about Arthritis and also celebrate the possibilities of being an active grandparent.
Miss G is an insatiable crafter, so I am always in search of fun kids’ craft ideas that are budget-friendly and feasible for a 4 year old. Since we have an endless supply of rocks, I collected these rock crafts for kids ideas from around the web to share with you!
It’s sometimes really intimidating to think about eco-friendly living with kids. Sure, it sounds wonderful on the surface, but the practicality of spending more money on household products, the difficulty of saying no to toys & opportunities that contradict an eco-friendly lifestyle, and even just the time commitment of setting up composters and swapping things out (etc) can seem overwhelming.
I love buying funny gifts for my brothers that actually get some use – like the Fred kitchen appliances that are kitschy but useful, the One Direction sticker booklet I bought Liam (which was re-gifted to an actual One Direction fan), or the Justin Bieber singing microphone I gave Eric which still gets brought out on karaoke nights. What’s the point in having brothers if you can’t give them a hard time every once in awhile?
I also like to remind them what total turkeys they were growing up – distracting me while eating so one of them could eat all my french fries, writing on my wall in glow-in-the-dark paint after a scary movie, or taking all of my gum out of my purse and then putting the empty pack back in it’s place.
Miss G’s classroom is currently studying worms so I thought it would be fun to throw together a Clean Mud Worm Bin to send to school with her! This is an awesome sensory activity for kids if you’re stuck inside or trying to warm the kids up to actual mud. I needed to create something […]
