This DIY is for toddlers. Let’s make a colorful necklace for them! You will need colored paper or wrapping paper (2 sheets), scissors and plastic lacing. Cut the paper into long triangular strips and make 10 per sheet (20 triangles total to make this necklace). Starting with the wider end, wrap the paper around the wooden spoon base – snug but not tight – until about 2 inches remain of the pointed end. Apply the white glue to this section. Finish rolling the last of the paper strip around, pushing the remaining glue all over the bead, covering it completely to seal the bead. Allow to sit for a minute or two, then slowly slide off the spoon to dry further. Continue with the remaining triangular pieces to complete the necklace. Read the rest of the tutorial here.
When planning a kid’s party, why not get your kid involved into the decorating process? For example, invite him or her to make this awesome garland made of ironing beads. Besides them you’ll need pegboard, ironing/baking paper, iron, ribbon and needle. Begin with making your circles or any other shapes using the pegboard. The set your iron to medium setting, cover the beads with the ironing paper and gently iron it for about 15 sec, making sure that the beads still have an open center. Once it’s cool, peel off your baking paper, turn around your design cover with baking paper and iron again. Finally, just pull the ribbon through the opening of your circle and hang somewhere you like.
Of course you have boxes that you don’t need. Younger children will have fun playing with their new friends while learning about size, weight and placement by fitting one animal box inside another. You will need recycled boxes (different sizes), brush, paint, marker, hot glue gun, glue and scissors. Disassemble the boxes. Cut off the bottom flaps so that the smaller boxes can fit inside. Turn the boxes inside out and reassemble, gluing the flaps to fix the piece. Draw your favorite animal ears onto cardboard, adding a 1/2-inch flap. Cut out the pieces, fold down the flaps and glue them to the top or a side of the animal head. Now draw your animal faces and paint them.
If your kid isn’t afraid of clowns, then arranging his or her birthday in circus theme might be your best choice. Looking for some inspiration? Take a look at the photos of the 2nd birthday party of Juliette arranged by her mom, a photographer from Paris. I like how every detail stick close to the main theme and color scheme, nothing more, nothing less. It turned out kind of vintage-inspired, just take a look at the gorgeous invites, the garland and other paper stationery. However, my favorite part is the cake, because it looks incredibly cute and funny, the clown is definitely not scary. How about you? Would you pick this theme for your kid’s party?

Two young boys live in this room and they like their room very much! At the beginning it was a room only for one boy, but when the mother found out that she will have the third child – girl, other boy began living with his brother. This woman with her husband decided to get little loft beds. These are shorter than traditional bunk beds, so she liked that if the boys fall, they won’t fall from very far and the top bunk won’t be directly in the way of the upper window. Also she didn’t add curtains because they prefer natural light. You can notice hiding spots under the bed and you can hide any toys down there.
