You can uses these houses for several holidays like Christmas or Easter. It is a tradition that we do every year and every year I am excited to see how their designs change. You will need icing and Popsicle sticks to spread the icing. Then you will need to purchase a bird house and some candy. I bought the bird houses at … [Read more...]

I had to put away my laptop and take out my creativity. I think it is easy to forget that you can do something special with a limited amount of time and money. I decided I was going to answer … [Read more...]

Bouncy Balls 4. Bandaids (what kid doesn't love character bandaids?) 5. Mini … [Read more...]
