I think a DIY surprise ball is good for any day of the week, the perfect little "i love you super mega" prize. Little toy bits and candy inside. You know your kids would love it.
Beautiful directions & photos from ShakeShakee.
I love Minieco projects & printable, they've got the whole simple/minimal/creative/clever craft thing down pat.
Thankfully, the directions on how to make your own custom wordsearch wrap are spelled out, just in case your gift recipient's name is not named Seth. Ha!
As we're on the last stretch of Winter I'm inspired to at least enjoy these cold days with a wonderful idea: a Winter Walk package by my friend Joya. Simply gather Sculpey clay into a tidy package of kraft paper with a dot fabric bow (irresistible!) and give to someone you love. I think my kids would love a package like this with a promise of a long woodsy walk...
The extra special part of this gift? That fantastic white painting on the inside of the wrap. Joya is certainly a source of creativity & talent. You can see more of Joya & her creativity on her blog and Instagram

It's December 3rd already but I just have to share this fun advent calendar -- a village! I love the graphic patterns! My thought: print it out & let the kids make their own fun paper Christmas village, why not?
You can print the village from Mr. Printables.
Are you ready for this? Surprise your family with an indoor marshmallow snowball fight. I surprised mine a couple years ago and we literally had the best time ever! Everyone was pelting each other with small marshmallows, yelling, giggling, dodging ...... chasing and laughing so hard we cried. FUN.
Super fun & for full effect, it must be a surprise! And make you you're armed & ready to throw the 1st shot!
A couple tips:
1. Small marshmallows work better for small children. If hit with one a big marshmallows can make small children cry!
2. While marshmallows are not necessarily messy ... having a snowball fight with them being tossed all over the house, thrown by sticky small hands IS sort of messy. That's ok & part of the fun. Fairly easy to clean up and perhaps enlist the dog....
Save those egg cartons, friends! Kristin Loffer Theis of KLTworks has created a super clever and amazingly cute owl ornament project using egg carton pieces, a bit of paint and some simple embellishments.

I am honored to have Kristin contribute such an amazing project for the Holidays! We have worked with Kristin and her company since the start of fawn&forest in 2006 and have become friends over the years. Her creativity and style is inspirational an always shines!
Seriously, amazing. This is the last week to enter, the contest ends October 31st. So get the colored pencils & crayons out pronto... and have your kids dream up something wonderful!

Isn't this idea of a baby's first year book fantastic? I'm one of those moms that takes a million photos but never has them printed, oof! I have actually taken a photo of each of my sons ... every week for their 1st year of life. All I need to do?
Create a book.
