Easter Egg Carton7

DIY Easter Egg Carton Teacher Gifts

I’d always wanted to gift Charlie and Olive’s teachers office supplies, and I thought Easter was the perfect opportunity because I could use egg cartons as containers.

Art Supplies for Kids 5+

I did a huge roundup of must-have arts and crafts supplies last year, and Mrs. Tricycle recently wrote a great post on must-have Pinterest art supplies for toddlers. Charlie draws independently every day, and Olive is becoming a little budding artist herself.

Ballerina Gear

I never imagined putting my daughter in ballet classes because I was such a tomboy growing up, and planned to put her in martial arts classes instead.
