I get just as excited as the next guy, when the weather finally starts to warm up. Seriously, its in my DNA, I am from Buffalo, New York – once those snow piles turn to mush we all dance in the streets! (Have you seen our St. Patrick’s Day parade celebrations?) Anyway, this week has been warm & along with letting the kids RUN for the first time in months – I started finding some fun spring time crafts for us to do.

Snowflake Popsicle Stick Craft - More at MadeByMeggsDOTcom 4

You may have spotted this craft on my Instagram a few weeks ago. This year was the first year that I had to think of something for holiday teacher gift ideas. E is only in a once a week nursery school, but the program is amazing. There are over 10 teachers and staff that she interacts and learns with each week. While I wanted to gift something to each of them, even the smallest something adds up quickly. So I went back to my roots, my frugal, crafty beginnings. There had to be something that E could make that would be the perfect gift for her teachers. And who doesn’t LOVE a handmade present! Continue reading Snowflake Popsicle Ornaments

The idea of adding to the never ending list of cleaning you already do, it’s just not fun. I get it! And I am sure you have spotted this idea online or on Pinterest, much like I have. So I had to try it, outside of course… just in case I had to use the hose!   Continue reading No Mess, Marble Painting with Toddlers

Hello again! A little personal story and then on to the beading project… I started this blog with the mental goal of never letting it consume me. I want it to be organic & real, and not feel like work. Neither of us would benefit from me feeling as if I had to write just to “push out” posts. So when my life gets nutty, or my family needs me… I don’t feel bad not being able to share. And this past week, my friends, was the first time I had to test that theory. While I missed the routine of posting, my energy was very much needed elsewhere. Continue reading Easy-Peasy DIY Pasta Beads

I always have an eye out for an easy and fun activity for the kiddos. And the internet is chocked full of them. So much so in fact, that any mother’s head could spin! So where do you even start?

Especially in this Pinterest world. Where a single search for “kids activities” brings up a endless page of pins. Each of which, will link you to 100s, if not 1,000s of blogs with even more to offer! Most days, that alone makes me to find a giant cardboard box  and a half deflated birthday balloon and have the kids go to town! (That’s all they ever want to play with anyway, right??)
