Popping Hallway


Sometimes it's just too stormy to play outside. That's when it's time to get a little creative. Truthfully, many of the activities I've set up for my kids lately come from the child inside of me that just always wanted to try something but never had the opportunity. This was one of those times.

Green + Blue Decorating


My husband's cousin, (my cousin-in-law?) pulled me into a discussion he was having with his wife today. He was arguing that he should be able to paint his "man cave" using green and blue, the colors of his favorite sports team, Seattle Sounders FC. Now, personally, I don't see the problem -- if he's the person spending the most time in the room, then I think he needs to be happy with the colors. I mean, I don't like pink, but I painted my daughter's room that color because she likes it and I figure that just because I said yes to the color pink in her room, it doesn't mean the color has to live anywhere else in my home.

Pastel "Explosions"


My son was craving a project using oil pastels the other day so I busted out my often neglected pile of miscellaneous pastels and taught the kids how to make simple pastel explosion art.

Cat In The Hat Costume


I almost forgot. Almost. But I remembered right at the last moment, and although the last moment doesn't always make for the most elaborate creations, sometimes the last moment is an opportunity to prove the old adage correct: necessity is the mother of invention.
