Delivering a Father's Day Message - I've come across a few cute ways that parents are helping their children say "I Love You" to their dads on Father's Day. Delivering this message isn't hard, but doing it in a unique way makes the day just a little more special. Write it on your feet. Some parents are using washable markers and writing a few words on their children's feet and then taking a picture. You can do something simple like "We Love Dad." Take a picture and then have it blown up at your local photo department. Dad will love it! Hold up a message on poster board. Another way to help your kids deliver their Father's Day message is to give each child a piece of poster board and have them write some of their fav...

Cute Lighthouse Craft - Yesterday my nephew came home with the cutest lighthouse craft. He had gone on a field trip with his class the day before to see our local lighthouse, so I guess they made these to remember what they learned. To make the lighthouse you'll need to stack two styrofoam cups on top of each other. Next, cut a few squares out of yellow paper. You can use one of those yellow sticky pads or yellow construction paper. Glue them closer to the top of the styrofoam cup to represent windows that have a light shining through them. Now you can create a top for the light house by folding a black piece of paper into the shape of a cone. Glue it in place. Give the lighthouse a door by drawing it in with a permanent marker. Th...

Patriotic Porch Swing - After my grandmother passed away, the kids and I inherited her porch swing. It needed a paint job pretty bad. My teenager and her two friends asked if they could paint it. I decided to let them come up with their own design and carry it out. I was very impressed with their work. They turned my grandmother's porch swing into a patriotic symbol for all to see as they pass by our house (we live on a highway). First the girls turned the back of the porch swing into an American flag. Then they turned the arms of the swing into red and white stripes. They got creative with the seat portion of the swing by painting it white and then splattering red and blue paint over it. I get compliments on this porch swing all the time. This is another reason why I advocate for parents to allow their children to be creative and explore their talents when an opportunity arises. ...

Tissue Paper Flower - My nephew made me this tissue paper flower at church for Mother's Day. It was so cute I thought I might write a little blog post on it. First, each child needs two pieces of tissue paper that has been cut into a rectangle. My nephew used two pink pieces, but I saw kids using two different colors and it looked just as good. Next, the children need to place the two pieces of tissue paper on top of each other and then fold them the same way you would if you were making a fan. Now pinch the center together with your hand and wrap a green pipe cleaner around it so that the pipe cleaner then hangs down to form the flower's stem. ...

Pussy Willows - When I was growing up, my great grandmother had pussy willow plants (Salix cinerea) all over her house. My kids didn't even know what one was until I began to tell them stories about my great grandmother. I thought it might be fun to talk about planting a pussy willow branch and then constructing a few pussy willow crafts. Ask a friend that has a pussy willow bush for a 12-inch pussy willow cutting. Have your child set the cutting in a clear vase filled at least half way with water. Change the water every few days and after two or three weeks you should be able to plant it. You'll know it's time because you can see the roots forming through the glass vase. Take your pussy willow ...
