My daughter has built an empire of collected art projects from school. They are wonderful in the sense that she’s proud of them and they also tell me a story of how she’s progressed throughout her preschool year. (eg: Wow look at that scissor use! Impressive, animals now have eyes on their head instead of […]

Our family loves to celebrate almost as much as we love traditions. Last year we made May Day Baskets with our two year old. It seemed like the perfect opportunity to teach her about sharing and being a kind neighbor, especially when so many celebrations involve kids receiving treats and presents. Plus, what toddler doesn’t […]
As a kid, I was fascinated with pop-out cards; add in hearts and I was busy for HOURS!! So today I present to you… Valentine’s Pop out Cards. It’s even more fun because it’s a card within a card, and an envelope within an envelope. (I felt just like Willy Wonka when I typed that […]
It is my hope that this post will save you time scrolling Pinterest to find a manageable rolled sugar cookie recipe to decorate cookies for the holidays. A cookie that 1. doesn’t lose its shape 2.doesn’t call for bizarre ingredients 3. doesn’t have 6,000 steps to make 4. only takes a bit of time instead of all afternoon 5. […]

From a young age, I developed a love of all things Halloween. I can remember vividly asking to be a witch year after year. Putting on those long, pointy, black plastic fingernails, I began my transformation. I would sit still while my mom caked my face with gobs of white face paint, and worked on the […]
This month we are talking DIY projects! Our contributors have shared lots of simple projects over the years, how to make everything from bows to curtains. Things that are actually do-able and may even make your life a tad bit easier in the long run.
So, it’s still hot out. (That’s the jist of how I start every blog post for SMB. You’re welcome.) Some of us have preschoolers who don’t begin school for a few more weeks… The bigger siblings who might be marginally helpful at entertaining said preschoolers are headed to the classroom and mamas be like: What do I […]
My boys are obsessed with dinosaurs. We read books about them at bedtime, we have dino figures, stickers, coloring books, and t-shirts everywhere. My oldest generally greets people with his loudest T-Rex ROAR instead of a polite “Hello.” I had no choice but to let them be dinosaurs for Halloween this year and I decided […]
