Christmas vacation is quickly approaching and its usually customary for parents to send their kids with gifts for their teachers (it never hurts right?). I remember bringing See’s candy as a child to my teachers with a nice holiday card, but why not make your own homemade candy jar – its personal, cute and very festive! Plus your kids will enjoy putting it together! Here is how to do it (it is also cheap!)!

For teachers, neighbors, and baby-sitters, label jars of candy with a sweet illustration. Have your kids draw directly onto individual labels…

Materials Needed:

–        Mason Jars
–        Any kind of candy you want
–        White labels (you can get these at a local art store or even staples.com)
–        Red and Green markers
–        Glue and glitter (optional)

How to:

  1. Fill the jar with candy
  2. Take a white label and have your child address the teachers name (or you if your child is starting to write) and also color or put glitter on the label to make for a festive gift
  3. Close the candy jar
  4. Deliver to teacher!

It’s that time of year again where we stuff ourselves with delicious food, watch football and enjoy watching the New York City Macy’s Day Parade (whether it be here in New York or on your TV at home). It is always fun prepping for this family day – I especially love it because it is non-religious and everyone can enjoy it together.

Rocket Ship

The other day I received a package that was filled-in with Styrofoam-type packaging peanuts. My coworker realized that they were biodegradable (off-white instead of the stark white Styrofoam). I did some research and found that these are non-toxic and can be used to make crafts for kids. If you dampen them they will stick to each other in all kinds of shapes. These peanuts are also available at packaging companies or sometimes office supply stores in a variety of colors. I tried it with my 4-year-old and this is how it worked out.

Here is all you need to keep your imaginative kids busy for hours.

Fall is no-doubtedly in the air and the hot weather here in New York City has passed. I noticed the leaves only started to change in New York City the past two weeks, but it still seems as if it were only September. With Halloween about to pass and moving into November and Thanksgiving, I was trying to think of a classic kids craft that you could make now that would last as a home decoration through November – a pine cone turkey! Easy and super cute. Here you go….


Pine Cone Turkeys

These little turkeys are fun to assemble and provide colorful decorations for your home, neighborly gifts or even the Thanksgiving table.

Supplies:

  • Pine cones
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Feathers
  • Googly eyes, white school glue or hot glue gun, other embellishments (optional)

How to:

Step 1: Use glue to attach feathers to back of pine cone.
Step 2: Curl top of pipe cleaner to form head.
Step 3: Attach googly eyes to either side of head.
Step 4: Attach head to front of pine cone.

Are you short on time and don’t have time to carve a pumpkin? Pick a pumpkin up at your local pumpkin patch or even at the grocery store along with some candy to make the sweetest pumpkin of the season!

Here is what you can do in 30 minutes! 

Set an intact pumpkin atop a clear, candy-filled container, then give kids an assortment of candy for decorating. This character sports pearly white mini marshmallows for teeth, a construction paper hat with a hole cut out for the stem, and black licorice eyes.





Need spider webs, but hate the mess from the synthetic decorative webs you buy at a party store? Transform your living room into a decrepit dwelling by hanging ragged-looking spider webs made by pinning, snipping, and tearing cheesecloth.

Have a SPOOK-tacular day!

Summer is here – kids are decked out in shorts, flip flops, suntans and are in need of summer fun activities that are great for at home or in the backyard. One great activity is tie-dyeing a t-shirt! It’s no wonder this 70s hippie fashion phenomenon has survived decades…it’s bright, buckets of fun and a great excuse to get your kids and their friends excited for a mini daytime party! Tie-dyeing is both a fun family activity and the perfect way to spruce up plain clothing without breaking the bank.

Even adults will appreciate that moment of anticipation just before the unraveling of rubber bands reveals their own vibrant creations.
