Make this headband for you kids, it’s easy and they can create it by their hands. You will need felt (brown, orange, red, yellow), scissors, string, tacky glue and hole puncher. Gather your materials. Cut different colors of felt into feather shapes so your children can pick and choose which ones they want. Cut the brown felt into two strips. Now let your kids pick out their feathers and glue them to one of the brown strips. Once they are done decorating their headbands, make two holes on each end of the brown strips. Tie the two brown strips together with some sort of string. Let the glue dry for a few hours before trying to wear the headband.

If you’re looking for a Halloween decoration for your house that your kids will like too, pay attention on these magnets. They are very simple and don’t take up too much space. For this project you will need smooth rocks, paint, paint markers, magnets, strong adhesive and clear coat. Choose the smaller, flatter rocks. Remember that if they are too big and heavy, they won’t stay put. Paint them up into Halloween creatures. You and your kids can create various characters for these rocks. For example, ghosts, black cats and funny monsters. Apply a clear coat if you wish. Use a strong adhesive to connect the magnet to the backside. That’s all!

This game will be great for your kids. It’s good for teaching fine motor skills, pre-reading and basic math.

Print the fence onto paper or card stock, cut on the brown outlines and fold on the gray lines then tape the overlapping bottom sections. Place all of the pompoms on the left side of the fence. Show your child how to move the “sheep” from the left side to the right side. The rest of the instruction is here.

It’s all about girly charm, sweetness and elegance in today’s nursery inspiration. Mom of little lady Ella Rose just as soon as she knew her baby’s gender pictured exactly what she wanted for her nursery. She’s a lover of neutrals, everything feminine, soft and sweet, so she wanted a nursery, which is sophisticated yet has some hints of little girl coming through in the details. All in all, I think she designed it perfectly, and you instantly feel at ease even when you’re simply looking at the photos. My favorite element here is probably frame wall décor, which looks so unusual, stylish and unique! I think it’s a great idea of how to fill a blank wall. Take a look to the photos below to find more fabulous ideas and inspiration.

After that you can take your paints and make this autumn leaf print craft, which is very easy and fun. Blend your paints to make more shades, you can even add here some spices. Then do your painting on a big roll of paper, dipping leaves in plates with paint and making stamps with them on the paper. The possibilities are endless, so enjoy and let your imagination run wild!
