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.

Today’s kid’s room is one of the sweetest interiors I have seen in a while. Those charming pink and white color scheme, not too sugary or girlish but very feminine and lovely, handmade art, a chalkboard dresser, a cute quilt sewn by grandma, heart-shaped shelves filled with The Beatrix Potter books from girls’ dad childhood… Everything is so sentimental, personalized and adorable! I can go on and on listing my favorite elements in this beautiful space for a baby girl. I really love it all! But you better look yourself, because there’re really many things to get inspired by. Enjoy and catch some ideas!
If your kids (especially girls) wanna be hairdressers, if they like to play a beauty salon, try to make this craft for them or with them! You will need cardboard tubes (toilet paper or paper towel tubes), yarn, hole puncher, glue, paper and googly eyes. Starting with a paper roll of any size, punch holes along the back and sides of the top. Cut your yarn 8-12″ long and thread each piece through two holes and knot in place. Next your kids can decorate the front of the roll. Use scraps of paper and googly eyes to make this adorable doll. That’s all!
Summer is the best time to go camping and all in all spend more time outside on picnics and in cozy hideouts, enjoying snacks and play. I bet your kids want their own hideout, so today we share with you a cool way to do that. The supplies are a hula hoop, safety pins, twine or rope, tulle and/or ribbon, sheets, scissors, cushions and blankets. Begin with pinning the top edge of the sheet to the hula hoop. Then with twine create a hanger to tie your hideout to the tree. Tie on tulle and ribbons or any other embellishments you have. Finally, hang the hideout from a tree branch, add some blankets and cushions underneath your fort and enjoy!
These fans are a perfect craft activity for summertime! This idea will be useful for you and your kids to cool off on a summer day! You will need craft sticks, patterned card stock, mod podge and paint brush. Use a round object (plate or bowl) to trace a circle onto the card stock paper. Each fan needs two card stock circles. Cut out the circles. Apply glue to the back side of each card stock circle. Place the craft stick between the two circles. Apply pressure and glue the two sides of the fan together. Enjoy your new paper fans!
