Since I was selected to be a contributor for Mom It Forward, I’ve had a blast trying out new projects.Β  My niche on the site is sort of a hands-on parenting approach to crafts, games, and recipes.Β  Meaning, getting the kids involved in making stuff!

Kate is at an age where she can wield a paint brush, tape and glue things together, adhere stuff, and mix things together.Β  We’ve had fun doing these projects together (many of which were her suggestions).

Here’s what we’ve done so far:

DIY princess tutu and handmade wand and embellished headband and flip flops

My next post is something I’m really excited about (it’s hair and beauty related, my favorite!) and a couple holiday things in the works.
