sm don't eat pete springtime header

“Don’t Eat Pete” is a favorite game at our house!  We love playing it for family night.  I made a “Spring Time Don’t Eat Pete” version to play this week!…Don’t Eat My Bunny! Sharing a free printable for you!  Print (8×11.5). Directions: Place one Easter candy (m & m’s, & skittles are good ideas for candy) in each square of the “Don’t Eat My Bunny” Sheet. Send a child away from the room and have the remaining children choose which Bunny will be “Pete”.  Have the first child come back and begin eating the candy on each bunny, one at a time. As soon as the child tries to pick up the candy that is on the “Pete” Bunny, everyone yells, “Don’t eat my Bunny!!!!” Let each child have a turn and refill the game board with treats.  Repeat this again and again! This is also a great game for class parties, family parties, or Family night!  We love it! [Read More…]

I saw these Easter Peep Houses on Yesterfood.  So stinkin’ cute!  Every year at Christmas time my kids look forward to decorating gingerbread houses…it is one of their favorite traditions…so I knew they would love make these Peep houses.  They were so easy to prepare for…only a few items were needed, and the kids had so much fun adding their own creativity to their Peep House. I love how our Easter Peep Houses turned out.  They are so cute to display through the month.  Or to use as a centerpiece.  I love seeing their little creations around my house.  Add the Easter Peep Houses to a cake stand…and place on your counter.

DIY Jewelry Dish

Jewelry-Dish-Square

This post is sponsored by Polyform Products. All opinions are my own. I’m always racking my brain trying to think up fun creative gift ideas, especially for Mother’s Day.  I was trying to think of all the things that I would love and decided I really needed a Jewelry dish.  I decided that my mom would love a DIY Jewelry Dish that my girls made for her.  What a fun keepsake this would be. Here’s what you’ll need: Polymer clay tin foil or wax paper butter knife rolling pin oven safe bowl To get my little helpers started we washed our hands and made sure our work surface was clean.  Place a sheet of tin foil or wax paper under each set of hands. I let my girls each choose 2 colors, and we cut them in half, leaving the other half for another project. The clay can be pretty hard so you’ll need to knead it out lots.  My helpers [Read More…]

DIY Photo Mat and Free Easter Printable

featuredimage

I love a good holiday printable…who doesn’t? It’s such an easy way to add holiday decor into your home. This super easy DIY photo mat and Easter printable was perfect for my entryway. Here’s what I did… First, I needed a frame. I found a simple black one at the dollar store and spray painted it gold. To make the mat I used a piece of regular cardboard. You’ll want to make sure that whatever you use won’t be too thick to fit back into your frame when it’s all done. You might need to use something that’s not quite so thick, like a gift box, cereal box, or even a piece of cardstock. I used a plain photo mat that I already had as a stencil.  I traced it onto the cardboard and cut it out using a razor knife. I used scrapbook paper to cover mine. Wrapping paper would work great, too! I would have used Mod Podge to [Read More…]

This post may contain affiliate links Sometimes a girl needs a reason to throw a Princess Tea Party.  Getting a new Princess Dress from Little Adventures is one of those reasons at our house.  These dresses are amazing, so soft and comfortable. And they wash up so nice which is great cause my girls don’t like to take them off. Here’s what we did to celebrate with fellow princesses. Here’s a view of us setting up.  I love these Kraft Party Fans from My Mind’s Eye.  They always make the perfect backdrop. We used a little table that is just the perfect princess size and covered it with a fancy table cloth.  Added some tulips for that spring touch. Every party needs some fancy chalkboard art.  I love this little chalkboard easel from Michaels. Then we had mini sugar cookies with princess sprinkles on them. These were a BIG hit. One of my favorite things were these adorable chocolate tea [Read More…]

PB Inspired Silver Egg Stands

PB Inspired Egg Stand

Hello friends! I’m SO thrilled to be back hanging out with you and the Crafting Chicks again! Easter is a big deal here in the Dolen household and I couldn’t wait to get started on my first Easter project of the year! I spied some Mercury Glass Egg Stands in the Pottery Barn catalog and thought they were super cute & fun! I decided to make my own PB Inspired Silver Egg Stands. To make your own PB Inspired Silver Egg Stands you’ll need: wooden egg wooden candle stick epoxy spray paint {I used silver metallic and mirror finish} This piece didn’t allow the egg to sit flat on top of the the candle stick. I took a screw driver and lifted up the edges… then folded the edges down into itself. I made sure I had all the stickers and tags peeled off the eggs and candle sticks before I squeezed out the expoy. Then I mixed the two gels together. [Read More…]
