Lucky Hedbanz

We had so much fun with our Valentine Hedbanz cards, that I’m back with a set for St. Patrick’s Day. If you aren’t familiar with the game HedBanz* here’s a quick break down. You wear awesome plastic headbands that have a slit to hold the card. Without looking at the card you insert it into the slit, and then by asking questions you try to figure out what you are. Kind of like 20 questions. Only instead of 20 questions, you are racing against a timer. If you get it before your time is up you pick another card and keep asking until your time expires. Then it’s the next person’s turn. When it comes around to you again, you pick up asking questions where you left off before. It promotes logical thinking and a lot of laughs! If you don’t have the game, I bet you could make elastic headbands, like the elastic hair ties only larger, and they would [Read More…]

Power of Moms Retreat Recap

photo edited

Hey friends!  I am so excited to tell you about the POWER OF MOMS  retreat that Brooke and I had the privilege of attending a couple of weeks ago.  If you’ve never been to the Power of Moms website, YOU MUST.  It’s always been one of our favorites here at Crafting Chicks and it’s the most amazing parenting site.  Saren and April and their 300 authors are REAL, HONEST, EMPOWERING and so very RESOURCEFUL.  I love it also because they talk so much about “Deliberate” in your parenting.  THIS CONCEPT IS POWERFUL and I love that they remind all of us that we can plan, prepare, and make our families and parenting experiences wonderful and purposeful. Retreat Description:  Power of Moms Retreats are uniquely powerful opportunities for learning, sharing, reflecting and relaxing. Part “professional development” in the field of motherhood and part get-away, Power of Moms Retreats can entail a day-long or weekend get-away or simply a two or three-hour gathering where a group of [Read More…]

Grandma’s Camp: The Indian in the Cupboard

teepee copy

Last year I introduced you our Grandma’s Camp. This year Grandma chose Indian in the Cupboard as the book of the year. It worked out great, and the kids were at Grandma’s Camp while I was at EVO’12. They had so much fun and assure me they didn’t miss me even a little. She made each kid a little Indian costume, and together, her and my dad made this teepee for the kids to sleep in! And they don’t mess around–this thing is pretty much a full sized teepee. Just like Little Bear in the book, she had the kids paint the teepee. They also made beaded necklaces, headbands and bows and arrows. I don’t know what else they did, as all my boys can talk about is this teepee! I think Grandma has set expectations pretty high for future camps!   Pin It
