My daughters love to color and draw. They could do that all day – so they were super excited when I brought home some Chalk Markers for them to play with! It opened up so many more possibilities of fun and they love them! With these markers you can write on chalkboards, blackboards, windows, whiteboards, plastic, mirrors, and more! They are a ton of fun when it comes to craft time and the girls have a blast with them!
I love to spend time with my daughters doing different crafts and activities. Every morning, we head to the computer and my 3.5 year picks out some printables that she wants to do that day. She usually picks out things for her 2 year old sister, but sometimes her sister gets upon my lap and decides too. Ever since we booked our Disney trip, whenever the girls see that signature “D” they flip out. So of course, Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out has been a big hit in this house. Every single time a preview comes on they both jump up and down and beg to go see it. I promised them that opening weekend in June, we will be there.
I am always looking for fun crafts and activities to do with my daughters. Lately they have been really into dress up and coloring – so when I came across the Colour A Princess Tiara from Great Pretenders, I knew it was something they would really enjoy!
Cinderella is in theaters now and I cannot wait to go see it! I love all things Disney. My husband and I honeymooned there and most recently booked our second trip to take the girls (they will be 2.5 and 4 when we go). This is lucky visit #15 for me and it never gets old. I feel like a kid again when I go. Cinderella has always been one of my favorite stories. It is truly a classic. I have heard such great things about this movie and how well they stuck to the true story of Cinderella.

I love finding fun items to do crafts and creative things with. Since I am a stay at home mom, I enjoy doing new things with the girls when we can. And we have been stuck inside for a long time thanks to this bitter cold and snowy winter, so we were all happy to discover Playfoam from Educational Insights! Playfoam can be molded in to any shape and comes in a variety of colors. Mix it up for multi-colored fun or keep them separate – it’s up to you!
Do you plan to see Cinderella this weekend? I know I want to go! OK, mainly because of Frozen Fever (huge fan here!) but I do want to see Cinderella as well. If my daughters were a little older, we would definitely be going to see it in the theater. I am hoping to convince my husband that a date night for this is in order! Below are some fun activity sheets that you can download to help you celebrate the long awaited release of Cinderella this weekend – just click the link to download them.
I love making DIY projects with my girls. They are a little young to fully understand sometimes, but we still have fun. I always have them help me out when making decorations for holidays. Since I am Greek, I always host a special Orthodox Easter for my in-laws at my house. This year I thought it would be fun to have the girls help make some DIY Duck Tape projects that I found!
I love to keep things neat and organized in the kitchen. Messes in the pantry drive me crazy. I have everything stored neatly in jars. My husband and I have talked about pulling out the label maker and labeling them but there is an issue with that. I switch around the containers often, depending on how much we have left of certain things. That is why I was super excited when I came across these Chalkboard Labels from MagicMIL.
My older daughter goes to school two days a week. Other than that she is home with me. Because of this, I try to do a lot of projects and crafts with my daughters. I like to do things that help them learn and grow when they are home. I want them to be ahead of the curve when they start going to school full time. We have used Dr. Cool kits before (read my Pan for Gold kit review here) and they are great learning tools!
I love to draw and do crafts with my girls. Some days we will sit for hours with bug pieces of paper and draw whatever comes to mind. I love watching my 3.5 year old’s imagination come to life on paper. There is nothing better than that feeling. Gosh, she has grown up so much already. My 2 year old really tries to draw things now as well. She usually just ends up scribbling – but she lets me know that those scribbles are cars and animals and all sorts of things. I was so excited to be able to give them each their very own art kit from Jerry’s Artarama.
