If your kids love to play in fishing, they will like these adorable little fishes! For this project you will need a fish shape, paper, pencil, flannel, scissors, sewing machine, magnets, thread, needle and acrylic paints. Using a fish shape, trace and cut out several fishes (you can make that number like you want). Sew those fishes then together and trim down. Once they are all turned right side out, use embroidery thread to hold a magnet in the mouth part of the fish. Then the fish are stuffed, sew closed and then embellish with embroidery thread, acrylic paints and permanent markers. Voila!
Are you familiar with ‘Elmer the Patchwork Elephant’ children’s book? If not, you better read this with your kids any time soon, because it’s really fun, cognitive and very interesting.

There’s more than a month left before school, which means that your kids still have a plenty of time to enjoy playing outdoors freely. Today we’re sharing one more fun activity that you can provide your children – outdoor chalkboard wall. If your kids enjoy drawing, it’s definitely going to keep them busy for hours. Plus it’d be a great addition to the backyard of your house, sort of a ‘kid’s zone’ to play. Basically, here’s what you need to do: use a piece of plywood for the hard surface and top with tempered hardboard for a nice smooth finish. Don’t worry, it holds up great! Enjoy!
More and more often future parents decide to keep in secret their upcoming baby’s gender for themselves. I think it’s cool, because this is how you get the freedom in designing your kid’s nursery. There’re no prejudices about color or whatever else. Baby L is arriving in three weeks, and his or her parents tried hard to get the space ready. The idea was to make the room very bright, fun and eclectic rather than themed. They just simply let their imagination wild and incorporated safari animals, fun pops of colors and also bought some neutral things that they like. I think it turned out to be very beautiful and original! What about you?
Snow in summer? Yes, it can be real! Your kids will like this idea! You may think that it’s so hard to make, but it’s not! All you need to make summer snow is a can of shaving cream. That is it! First of all, take your can of shaving cream and then spray it into a container that will fit in your freezer. You can buy women shaving creams with strawberry and peach scents which smell so much better than the varieties for men. Pop the container in the freezer and let it sit overnight. Then pull it out and take a spatula or spoon to the top to break up the shaving cream. This takes a second and turns the shaving cream into a super fluffy and amazing frozen powder! Your summer snow is ready!
I love funny, even ridiculous stuff for interiors, so I couldn’t help smiling when I saw these pet chairs from The Land of Nod. They’re certainly not for those of you who think that the simpler the better, but they look so charming and adorable, your kids will fall in love! They come in 4 versions: a lion, an owl, a panda and a bear. I like that their covers are machine washable, so it wouldn’t be hard at all to clean them up. One more pleasant thing about them is that each chair can be personalized with a child’s name. Impossible cuteness!
This idea is a cool way to practice counting, sorting and developing fine motor skills of your kids! You will need just construction paper, tape or glue, scissors, plastic spiders, tongs or tweezers, tissue box and pom-poms. To create the frog, tape two construction paper eyes to the top of a tissue box. Cut out the plastic for the mouth opening. You can use plastic spider rings with the ring part cut off and tongs. Also you can find tongs or tweezers at a dollar store. To feed the frog, put the spiders in a pile or in a small bowl. Use the tongs or tweezers to transfer a spider to the frog’s mouth.
