4 Ideas for a Creating a Blessings Jar with Baby

I saw this adorable “Blessings Jar” on a friend’s Instagram the other day and I just thought it would make such a great family craft to do for Thanksgiving. 

The only problem, of course, is that my baby is not even four months old yet and can’t really articulate her blessings in life (if I had to guess, they would be something like: mom’s arms and milk), so I thought of a few ways we could make the idea of a Blessings Jar work for the whole family–baby included!

A Fun DIY Thanksgiving Placemat for Your Little One!

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving nearly a week away. While I am carefully planning our Thanksgiving menu, I’m letting my little one’s get in on the Thanksgiving fun with some decor for their kids’ table. My girls love to paint and I am planning a fun and interactive kids table for them on Thanksgiving Day (I’ll share more next week) so I wanted them to help me personalize their table with some fun placemats.

These were not only fun for them to make (and get their hands dirty) but they will also double as a coloring mat for them during Thanksgiving dinner. 

Creative Ways to Celebrate Thanksgiving as a Family

Thanksgiving is one of those quick holidays that comes and goes too fast. I get caught up in the menu and sometimes miss the entire point of the holiday.

DIY Discovery Bottles for Baby

As a mama to three little ones, I am constantly thinking of fun things to do with my kids. I’ve got a 4-year-old, a 2-year-old, and a 7-month-old, so it can be difficult to find activities or projects that are appropriate for all three of them.

We just got our hands on a new book that is sure to keep the winter boredom away, and found the perfect activity for all of my girls to enjoy – Discovery Bottles! My older girls made these discovery bottles using some odds and ends from our craft supplies and the baby had so much fun playing with them when they were finished!
