It turns out my baby is officially no longer a baby. “Pink” turned 2 last week. For some reason I was obsessed with the idea of planning a ladybug party. The thing is, I’m not all that crafty. (Pinterest gives me major anxiety!) Oh, I’ve got big ideas, but I know that when it comes down to reality, I have to keep it simple. So I did. And it the party turned out to be the perfect way to celebrate my sweet little ladybug.
If I could do these things, just about anybody can. Really.

With the birth of my son Hayden 9 months ago, the girls officially became outnumbered in our house. Sugar and spice and everything nice now receives a very healthy dose of puppy dog tails and slimy snails, and it really doesn’t help that my daughter loves bugs just as much as her brother! This past weekend we spent a lot of time outside digging in the garden and came across plenty of creepy crawlie bugs, and the kids couldn’t have been more in heaven. Son inspired by Spring and all that is buggy about the season, and all the time we’ll be spending outdoors, here are 20 bug inspired handmade items, crafts and even snacks, perfect for baby and toddler!

Floral patterns and flower accents are always a popular choice for baby girls, especially because flowers are found in nature all year round. Twelve months of the year, beautiful floral patterns can be found in any color scheme and in flowers perfectly suited for the season. But springtime flowers are my absolute favorite; from the pastel colors to the soft, airy blooms, the flowers that fill the air after the showers of April are the most fragrant and most visually stunning, in my opinion. So inspired by April showers and all that is spring, here are 20 different floral inspired DIY projects and handmade gifts that are perfect for baby.

Once or twice a week, I try to plan a fun and simple craft to do with the boys. Something we can do together, is appropriate for small hands, and includes an educational element. A craft that’s not too tough, doesn’t take too long, but produces big and beautiful results.
And while I’ll admit that with all the gluing, cutting, and finger painting, craft time sometimes leads to crazy time. But none of that mess matters when I see the beaming pride of accomplishment my boys have while showing off their masterpieces to anyone who will listen.
