If you are planning a Christmas family dinner, this idea will be very useful and funny. Your kids will like it! For this project you will need plastic baubles, gold paint, ribbons, chocolate, toys and washi tape. You can buy these plastic baubles in craft or discount stores. If you want, you can spray a gold paint on them. So then let them dry and decorate by ribbons and tags with your family’s names. Now inside you can pop in a little chocolate, teeny toy and a joke rolled up and secured with a little bit of washi tape. Plan every little detail of your Christmas!
Today’s nursery is a great example of right eclecticism, where in one room design bold meets subtle, old meets new and neutral meets peachy pinks. I absolutely love this approach to a baby’s nursery and think that it’s one of the best ways to make the room look interesting, inviting, whimsical and inspiring creativity for all children living here and anyone visiting little ones. What is more, for this nursery parents chose such design solutions that will grow past the baby years and be functional. For example, they used a simple table as a changing table instead of buying a dresser, made a chalkboard wall that will entertain kids years ahead. Get inspired!
It’s very nice when your kids can create something and fin out interesting facts. So today you and your children can make these koala and wombat paper plates and get acquainted with Australian animals. For this craft you will need just paper plates, paint (brown and grey), googly eyes, brown felt or paper for wombat’s nose and ears, black felt or paper for koala’s nose, grey felt or paper for koala’s ears and glue. First of all take your paper plates and paint them with brown and grey paints. You can use sponges just because it’s very fun. When your plates will dry, carefully attach eyes, nose and ears to your wombat’s and koala’s faces with glue. Then let them dry. Voila!
Even in our modern world of highly developed technologies, where you can find out your baby’s gender very soon after you got pregnant, unexpectedness happens. One sweet couple from California was already preparing a room for a baby girl with sweet dragonfly wallpaper, when they found out they’re expecting a boy. They had to face a problem of redesigning their kid’s nursery to make it look at least more gender-neutral. Thanks to the talent and professionalism of Jennifer Jones from Niche Interiors the result turned out amazing. Dragonflies still adorn the walls, but together with dark wooden details and furniture, bold blue and orange accents nursery looks very playful, bright and at the same time simple and perfect for a baby boy. Enjoy the photos!
Thanksgiving Day is on its way and you probably have already started your preparations. Looking for cute and easy activities for your children while you are cooking? Let them make a whole gang of these turkey finger puppets for the family to love! The supplies list is extra short: foam sheets, scissors, glue and hole punch. Begin with grabbing your scissors and cutting out a circle and two holes for the fingers the way it’s shown on the pictures below. Then cut out some feathers and a beak out of the colored foam sheets. Punch out a couple of eyes from white foam. Next glue on the face to the front above the finger holes and glue on the foam feathers on the other side. Once it’s dry, it’s time for play!
Create this bunny with the kids and your children will forget about other toys! You will need cotton balls, felt, glue, buttons, pipe cleaner and toilet paper rolls. First of all gather all supplies.

When your bunny will be nice and fluffy it is time for the fun details. Add the ears to the inside of the paper roll and use buttons for the eyes and nose. The pipe cleaner whiskers will be the final touch. Ta-dah!

Scandinavian style with its unique, calm ambience fits perfectly a boy’s room design – today’s photos certainly prove that. Light floors, white walls and cool grey and black accents, very livable interior with clean lines… All of that is very functional, stylish and has some certain masculine and sort of restrained vibe that needs to be in a boy’s bedroom. I also love that there’re multiple windows, which is also one of the main features for Scandinavian style, because Swedes generally love a connection with the outdoors and lots of light. The room is really beautiful in its simplicity, and the style is just timeless. Take a look and get inspired!
