When I was a kid I used to love making cookies with my grandma. Wearing an apron, hands dirty with flour and sugar… It was so much fun! You can arrange something like that, too, and make these sweet treats looking like dresses with your daughter or granddaughter. They’d be great for a birthday party, baby shower or anything else like that. There’s nothing difficult in making them, you only need sugar wafer cookies, ½ cup frosting to match the cookie color, pearl or white decorator candies, a serrated knife and a pastry bag. Head over to handmadecharlotte.com for the recipe and enjoy!
All girls love to play with dolls, but what your daughter will say if you make a real doll costume for her? We are sure that she’ll like it! So today we show you how you can make huge bow for doll look. You will need fabric, scissors, pins, needle and thread. First, cut out your pieces, two rectangles and fuse interfacing to them. Then fold your large piece in half, hot dog style, and sew it up. You’ll want to leave a 5″ or wider opening in the middle of the piece. Use a 1/2″ seam allowance. Then turn it and press. Make sure to fold in the opening and press it, too. The rest of the tutorial is here.
Hey there, dear readers! We’ve got such a lovely nursery design to show you today! It’s a professional project for baby Schuyler, who is 17 months now. The room has great natural light, so the main idea was to stay in a light, almost white color scheme and fill the space with colorful accents for a bit of contrast. My first thought was that it’s a parents’ bedroom redesigned for a little one to live there too, but in fact the bed here is a lounge for Schuyler to read, play and cuddle with her favorite people. Such a nice idea, huh? The room feels modern, fun and unique, and we really love its personal touches like the sweet Labradoodle rocker as a miniature of the family’s real pet. Enjoy the photos and get inspired!

This puppy is really cute, so if you aren’t ready for a real one, make this shaggy dog for your kids now! You will need soft fluffy wool yarn, pom pom makers, various sized store-bought pom poms, felt, scissors and quick-drying fabric glue. First make 2 large and 1 smaller pom pom using your yarn and pom pom makers. The two large pom poms will be the “head” and “body” pieces, and the smaller one will eventually be the “snout”. Select one of these and wrap a long piece of yarn around a generous portion of the pom pom to tie it off. Hold the pom pom by the tuft you’ve just created and trim around the back of the pom pom to clean up the wool ends. Next steps of the instruction are here.
Today’s craft allows your kid to practice fine motor skills and pattern activity. It’s spring-inspired, so right now is the perfect time to do that! Here’s the list of supplies that you need for this project: pink tissue paper, green felt, hole punch and a few twigs from the yard. Begin with cutting small leaves from a sheet of green felt. Then with a hole punch make holes in each leaf. There your kid might need a little help, because felt material requires quite a lot of hand strength to punch a hole. Visit sugaraunts.com to see the next steps of the tutorial and finish them. Enjoy!

When I was little, I used to love to build things: a teepee of sorts, a fort from pillows, etc. It was so much fun!

Germany’s Nest Rocker has created these brilliant padded playhouses that might get your children pretty excited of the things they can create with it: a playhouse, a couch, etc. It’s completely easy to join these pads together using velcro fasteners to build a perfect little indoor cubby. Looking at the pictures below it’s obvious that kids love this so much! Be sure to check out!

We love discovering new and fresh kid’s rooms themes, and today we’ve got a perfect woodland nursery design to share. It’s a bit rustic, a bit boho, a bit vintage with a mix of soft organic and handmade pieces. The designers, mom and dad of a tot, started planning the room style with this woodland wallpaper. Then they added some key furniture pieces and filled the space with a few, well considered pieces, which fit into the theme. The space turned out to be really calm, warm and at the same time imaginative and creative, which is great for a baby. Take a closer look to the photos of this space and get inspired!
