MINI MAKERS: PAPER SNOWFLAKES WITH THE LAND OF NOD

Shared one of the easiest ways to make paper snowflakes with kids on the Land of Nod blog last week. Since winter calls for more time indoors (for most of us anyway ;) I wanted to make sure and give you the link. Nothing quite like a simple paper project to spend quality time with kids and keep them engaged!

How have you guys been staying busy indoors lately?

Happy humpty-hump day! (oops — song officially stuck in my head now)

I’ve mentioned it a few times over the last week or so but this past Saturday I was able to host a fun Easter craft event at the Land of Nod with my little helper, Tilly. We had the best time and loved seeing so many adorable little faces enjoying a DIY just for them.

If you missed the event and are looking for a couple simple Easter projects, I shared the how-to and bunny goodie bag template over on Honest to Nod… And a few pics from the event below :)

It was a fun day with lots of balloons, goodies, new friends and some of my favorites that came to support too. Followed by a lunch date and some shopping. Hoping it won’t be too long before we can do it again. Thanks again to everyone that joined us!

SAVE THE (EASTER EVENT) DATE

Ready or not, it’s Monday! We were definitely not feeling ready this morning… Still trying to figure out where the weekend went? I planned on sharing some egg hunt and Easter Sunday outfit inspo today for the minis, but didn’t quite get things pulled together.

I do, however have some other exciting Easter-y news…

Saturday, March 19th from 10am to 12pm, we’ll be hosting a mini-makers craft event at the Land of Nod in U. Village (Seattle, WA). Come make a festive Easter egg balloon and fill bunny ear goodie bags with yummy treats as well! I’ll share all the official event info later this week.

For those of you that can’t make it because of distance or scheduling, I’ll be sharing the quick tutorial on the Land of Nod blog soon… The balloons and baggies are low-fuss for the adults but still fun for the kids. Perfect if you plan on entertaining little ones this easter!

If you are looking for more Easter fun, here are a few of my favorite projects and freebies.
