Looking for the perfect Father’s Day present? This six-piece desktop decoration showcases family photos on two sides when it’s assembled and doubles as a brainteaser when Dad needs a distraction.

You will need:

  • 6 (1 1/2-inch) wooden cubes
  • Acrylic paints and paintbrushes
  • Rubber band
  • Thin black marker
  • 2 photos (3×5 or 4×6)
  • Double-sided adhesive sheets
  • Scissor
  • X-Acto knife
  • Letter stickers (optional)

How To:

  1. Paint the sides of each cube, leaving the top and bottom bare.
  2. When they’re dry, arrange them in a rectangle, unpainted sides up, and wrap a rubber band around them to hold them together.

    Step 2

    Using the marker, trace the rectangle onto the picture side of each photo, making sure everyone’s faces fit within the rectangle. Apply a double-sided adhesive sheet to the back of each photo and cut along the tracing lines. Peel off the adhesive’s backing and adhere one photo to the top of the cubes and one to the bottom (since it’s a bit tricky, it’s a parent’s job).

  3. Divide the photos by cutting along the edges of the cubes with the X-Acto knife (another job for a parent). Add letter stickers if desired.

Commercialism and marketing always centers around Easter in the March and early April months, but often times, Passover is not celebrated enough. This year, Passover, a Jewish holiday that celebrates the week-long celebration of the Jewish Exodus from Egypt, Jewish families and friends celebrate Passover with a seder, or ritual meal, during which the story of Moses and the Exodus is retold through words and symbolic foods. Traditionally, after the seder meal is eaten, the family patriarch hides a piece of matzoh, known as the afikomen, as a symbolic dessert. The child who finds it receives a small prize. In this variation, each child makes his or her own bag, which is filled with a piece of matzoh. The bags are hidden, and each child must find his or her own bag to get a prize.

Make your own afikomen bag that is personalized to the children and family celebrating Passover at your home. See below for this fun kids craft!

It’s a jewelry box, it’s a treasure box, it’s a secret box….Turn craft popsicle sticks into a log- cabin-style container for jewelry, hair ties, or any fun kiddo collectible. I remember making these in school and was so proud to show it to mommy and daddy. Build one this weekend with your kids for a fun afternoon (or early morning) activity.

I looked out the window this morning, and to my dismay, it is STILL rainy and it looks disgusting outside. It can be tough to entertain kids on rainy days – barbies and legos can only entertain for so long! Have fun with your kiddo and turn a gloomy day into one of the prettiest days by painting their umbrella with a fanciful pattern. It only takes a few supplies and a child-size umbrealla. So by the time it dries….they can be “dancing in the rain” with their new fancy umbrella!

Need:

  • You will need a kid’s nylon umbrella (paint won’t stick to a plastic one)
  • Paintbrushes
  • Permanent waterproof paint, such as fabric paint or acrylic

How To:

Note: Follow the manufacturer’s directions: Some fabric paints require the addition of fixative; others require ironing the umbrella after painting.

1.    Carefully cover the work surface with newspaper before you begin, and have your child wear a smock.

2.    Once finished, keep the umbrella open overnight.

3.    The paint must dry completely before you close it or use it.

4.    Tah-Dah!

Another fun idea is singing the song “Rain, Rain, Go Away” with your kids! Here are the lyrics:

Rain, rain, go away

Come again some other day

We want to go outside and play

Come again some other day!

Optional Lyrics – change the third line to say:

[child’s name] and [sibling or friend’s name]

want to play

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.
