Once upon a time, when I first started blogging, I pretended to be crafty.
I whipped up my own unique recipes, I scoured the World Wide Web for projects I could write tutorials on, and I even, horror of horrors, attempted food photography. (Hint: chocolate muffins aren’t always appetizing if you photograph them at the wrong angle…)
But eventually, I gave up, because, really who was I fooling? I am no craft blogger, my friends, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have an appreciation for fun and simple DIY projects every now and then. I would wager that probably about twice a year, I am struck with the creative itch and want to make something just for the fun of it.
Which is why, when I saw this simple step stool project idea on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to try it. And luckily for me, it makes the perfect Father’s Day present!

As a mother of 3 young girls, I am always in search of new ideas and creative activities that I can do with them. From art projects and sensory play to reading and using our imagination, a lot of our time is focused on creativity. I have a few staple projects and activities that we do on a regular basis, but I’m always looking for more. If you’re a parent of a toddler or preschooler, I imagine you’re in the same boat. Today, I bring you the 10 best blogs for creative toddlers!

Sharing nursery inspiration is one of my favorite things to do here at Disney Baby, so you can only imagine how exciting it is to be sharing my own little one’s nursery with you here! As soon as I found out we were having a boy, I knew that I wanted the theme of his nursery to be something that felt cozy, woodsy and something that rang true to our Pacific Northwest roots. I knew there would be plenty of Pendleton wool (we live in Oregon and Pendleton is a local love here), and a lot of wood accents. My other reason for choosing this theme is that it allowed me to pull items I already had around my home and repurpose them as nursery items. This entire room cost a total of zero dollars (aside from the $10 I spent on DIY art supplies) because they were all items I already owned. Score! Good design doesn’t have to be expensive – it just requires a little bit of creativity. Hope you enjoy my little Clive’s room!

I love planning presents for people–it’s definitely my love language.
There’s just something so fun about finding (or making) the perfect present and watching the gift recipient light up.
Naturally, I’m already thinking about what I want to get my husband for Father’s Day. (It’s coming up, guys–June 15th!) I’m not one for the typical tie or the beer cake, perhaps because my husband rarely wears ties and would rather have real cake, I’m sure, so I’m on the hunt for a more meaningful present that will express how much he means to me.
Because honestly, my husband is an amazing father. And while I am of the firm belief that parents need to be partners, I am also of the firm belief that appreciation goes a long way. My husband is a wonderful parent, never failing to get up in the night with kids, always playing with our daughters and son, and he can do that magic football hold that always soothes a fussy baby. (It’s a miracle, I am telling you.)
It’s a tall order to come up with a gift that fits all that and let’s face it–I’m really not that crafty or cool. But I did come across a super easy and super cute Father’s Day gift last year that he loved!

We are headed on another road trip this weekend with Macks and our two girls. While I am going to try to take my own advice for taking a baby on a road trip, there are also some products that I have to keep on hand while we are in the car.
Disney Baby has everything you need for taking your baby on a road trip this weekend, check out some of my favorites:
