Baby Food Jar Piggy Bank

Pin It
My 3 year old has been loving the idea of coins lately.
I think he's been watching his older brother earn money for doing extra chores and using that money to buy toys.
The other day my son found a few coins and wanted to have somewhere to put them.
He asked for a piggy bank.
After searching around the house and trying to find a container to use, I remembered that I had some empty baby food jars, perfect!

Angry Birds Piggy Construction Cake

Pin It
This is my third and final post from my son's Angry Birds themed party.

If you missed my other two posts, I showed you how to make an Yellow Angry Bird Pinata and also some Red and Yellow Angry Birds Cupcakes.
Before the big day my son and I had been talking and throwing around ideas for the cake.
My son told me that he wanted Angry Birds cupcakes and a piggy cake.
I knew I wanted the cake to be easy since the cupcakes would be a little more time consuming.
I love how this cake turned out, but more importantly, my son loved how it turned out!
It's pretty self-explanatory but I've got some step-by-step pictures to show you the process.

Angry Birds Cupcakes Tutorial

Pin It
The other day I showed you a step-by-step tutorial for the Yellow Angry Bird pinata we made for my son's 3rd birthday party. (You can check out that post here).
Today I am back to show you a quick tutorial for the cupcakes we served at the party.
I ended up making 2 dozen of these cupcakes, 12 red birds and 12 yellow birds.
I've tried to include pictures to show the process, and I will explain as much as I can, but as always if you have any questions let me know!

Yellow Angry Bird Pinata Tutorial

Pin It
Yesterday we celebrated my son's 3rd birthday.
For this birthday my son requested an Angry Birds party, and it was so fun going through the details and hearing specifically what he wanted to have at the party.
My son told me his favorite bird is the yellow bird, and he wanted a yellow bird pinata.
I knew we could totally pull this off, and I'm pretty proud of the end product. It turned out just how I had pictured it in my head.
Always a plus :)
I have a lot of step-by-step pictures for you so you can see how it was all put together.

Scratch Art Craft

Pin It
A few weeks ago I saw a time-lapse video tutorial for these 'Scratch Art cards'
They looked really quick and easy to put together, so I thought we'd give them a try.
I think I was also just curious to see if it really worked as well as they say.
I was surprised that it did end up working pretty well!
This does take a little bit of prep work, so you can make these ahead of time for your little ones to scratch off the black part, or let them be apart of the whole process.

Pinwheel Headband {Video Tutorial}

Pin It
If you follow me on any of my social media outlets you may have seen me posting a lot of pictures of headbands and bows that I've been making.
Within the last 2 months I've had 4 friends give birth to baby girls!
Needless to say, I have been working on my bow skills ;)
I have had a few people ask me how to make some of these bows, so I wanted to post some video tutorials for you. 
This one is for a fabric pinwheel nylon headband for a baby girl. (You can also use felt).
Let me know if you have any questions!!

* I received this product for free in exchange for an honest review here on my blog.
All opinions are 100% honest and my own.
I do not receive any financial compensation if you click on any of the included links, or purchase the product.

Today's review is of a game called Circuit Maze from the company ThinkFun.
This is the second game we have reviewed from this company, (the other review was for a game called Square by Square. You can check out that review here).
As soon as I saw what this was I couldn't wait for my son to try it out.
We still love playing the Square by Square game, and I was hoping this one would be just as awesome.
I am here to tell you that it is!
I absolutely LOVE games that teach and challenge young minds, and this one definitely fits that description!
