The most magical time of the year is almost here! 2020 has been full of negativity and we wanted to shoo them all away by bringing some early Christmas cheer. Zoë has been looking forward to all the festivities, and although we may have to celebrate a little differently this year, we wanted to continue some of our traditions. First up on Zoë’s list? Writing her letter to Santa!

I have my Free Printable Letter to Santa from four years ago still available for download, but this year, I decided to edit it a little.

No horror stories of overpriced plants here, just our very own pot of monstera deliciosa! The cost of this baby? Priceless!

Halloween’s over, but we’re still gaga over Zoë’s costume this year. When you have a daughter who’s determined to wear something unique every year (she was an ice cream cone last year, a gumball machine the previous year, and a cupcake the year prior), you can bet she will request for another DIY creation.

This year, she wanted to be a claw machine. The truth? It was another project this DIY-loving momma took on with excitement.

Easy Peasy Homemade Play Dough

Easy Peasy Homemade Play Dough Recipe

Last week my six-year old came home from a friend’s party with some Play-Doh loot. I normally tolerate the mess she makes when playing with Play-Doh, but the tub came in the brightest color of blue ever and it left huge blue stains everywhere. I ended up watching her every move, wiping and scrubbing dough residue and stains wherever she went. It was no fun at all, but in as much as I want to ban all play dough at home to save my sanity, I know denying and restricting her from any play dough fun is simply not the answer. Nobody wants be labelled “Mommy the Party Pooper,” right? So the other day, we whipped up some homemade play dough.

The recipe is super quick to make, using everyday ingredients found in the kitchen. I used to make them when Zoë was a toddler, and I loved that it was an edible, non-toxic and cheaper alternative to store-bought dough. The best part? It doesn’t leave nasty stains, making way for some endless fun!

Read on to see how quick it is to make this Easy Peasy Homemade Play Dough!
