Extra Tips and Tricks for Mom

  1. This craft is easy enough for toddlers to do since it is only placing stickers.
  2. I recommend letting older kids pick their sayings first and then letting toddlers just have random letters that are left.
  3. Younger kids may need help spelling or getting creative with the letters. For example: a sign saying “Princess X-Ing” instead of “Princess Crossing” will save S stickers.
  4. Use a cotton swab soaked in Goo Gone to gently pry it from the door. This prevents paint damage and leftover sticky residue.

See? I told you it doesn’t get much easier than this DIY bedroom door sign. Clean up the sticker backing pieces and you are done. I want to warn you to give the toddler a set amount of stickers in the beginning of the project. If you don’t, he will continue sticking them on until you have a quirky, 3-Dimensional wall sculpture on your hands. Of course, if you don’t mind being totally out of stickers, it is kind of cool looking as far as abstract art goes.

It is time for another Creative Play Kit Craft! If you saw Monday’s DIY glittery notebook, then you know that today we’re making these DIY mini pompom monsters.

They look up at you with wide, adorable eyes and say, “Mommy, I love you.” That heart-melting moment when you realize that these adorable little monsters are all yours and you wouldn’t change it for the world is what inspired this week’s DIY mini pompom monsters.

DIY Children’s Artwork Display

Kids love drawing, painting, and coloring. They are constantly giving you thoughtful creations of love.

You don’t want to hurt their feeling by getting rid of any of it but you can’t continue getting buried under art. This DIY children’s artwork display is the solution. Hang it on the wall to show off their awesome creations and create the rule that you can only keep what they want displayed on it. Older artwork gets filed away or recycled.

Hang this DIY children’s artwork display on the wall to show off kid's creations and control artwork clutter at the same time!

Step 1

Give each child 5 clothespins, some Mod Podge, glitter, and a paintbrush.

Notes:

  • If you don’t want to clean up the glitter mess at the end of this craft, give your kids some pompoms instead.
  • Have each child decorate clothespins on a plastic placement for easier clean up no matter which decoration you choose.

Soak Up Summer Fun with 15 Backyard DIY Activities

Yesterday we celebrated my brother-in-law’s 30th birthday with a huge party full of food, family, and fun. His parents rented a venue right next to a local park and we spent the day running around with the kids playing, swinging, and laughing. It was a particularly special day for my in-laws because when my brother-in-law was 2 years old he was diagnosed with cancer and they never knew if this birthday would even come. It is a beautiful reminder to celebrate the time that you have with your loved ones. At the end of the day we were happy, grateful, and exhausted. With that in mind, I wanted to round up 15 backyard DIY activities that let you soak up summer fun with your family.

DIY Kids Paper Flower Wall Art

All you need is your Creative Play Kit to make this awesome craft. Before we get to the tutorial I have a tip for doing this craft with small children. Mom should complete steps 1 through 6 and let little ones complete the rest of the craft. Older kids can make the entire project independently. Okay, now let’s get this craft started.

Hang your paper flower wall art on the wall and you’re done. This turned out so well that the flowers are currently hanging on our living room wall. You just can’t help but smile looking at them. Your kids will no doubt want some to hang in their rooms as well, so you may let them make multiples. It’s a perfect craft for a rainy summer afternoon to help keep kids creative and entertained. If you’re looking for even more fun summer crafts check out this DIY Kids Behavior System and this Googly Eye Monogram. You will be happy crafters all weekend long.

Finger Painted Giant Tiki Men


Summer is the perfect time for outdoor parties and entertaining. Luaus are a popular theme because they are fun, festive, and make you feel like you’re on a mini-vacation. Luaus create an oasis in your own backyard complete with family and friends. This is also an easy theme to DIY. You can line your tables with fringed green plastic tablecloths to represent grass skirts. You can make your own easy invitations and you can paint your own decorations. These finger painted giant tiki men are a fun and messy luau craft that lets kids get their hands dirty. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about the mess when you unleash your Clean Squad!

Before you get started painting you need to take the family for a trip to your local Wal-Mart and pick up Clorox Spray and Viva Vantage paper towels. We love how wide the aisles at Wal-Mart are! They are perfect when you have the whole family with you. They also make it easy for kids to get in on the shopping action. Little man could even shop from Papa’s shoulders which made him infinitely happy.

Once you get home, you want to clear a large space for your painting project. We moved the table and chairs from the dining room for our project. That gave us plenty of space to work with.

Unfortunately, when we moved the furniture I found some stains from goodness knows how long ago on the floor. (Note to self, kids are messy!) Thankfully, I already had my Clorox Cleaning Spray and Viva Vantage paper towels. I didn’t even have to let the Clorox soak on the stains. The stains wiped right up. Score! Once I finished, we had a clean, disinfected surface (thanks to Clorox Cleaner’s 99.9% germ killing strength) and were ready to get started.

Once you have finished your finger painted tiki men it is time for clean-up. With Clorox cleaner this took us no time at all. Seriously, you guys, we spent less than 5 minutes getting everything cleaned up, including squirmy kids. The craft took longer than the clean-up and that’s how it should be. The fun should always last the longest. The Viva Vantage paper towels last, too. We used one on the floor and it was strong enough to finish the entire job!

Fun Kid Craft: Googly Eyes Monogram

We’re back this week with another craft for kids using the Creative Play Kit! The kids had a blast making this one because it involved googly eyes. I have no idea what makes these little plastic pieces so entertaining but my kids go nuts for them. That’s what makes them great for creating fun bedroom décor that kids will love hanging on the wall. Even better is that this googly eyes monogram is super easy to make. Older kids will have no trouble and younger children will do great with a little guidance from mom.

Materials

  • Construction Paper
  • Colored Pencils
  • Googly Eyes
  • Glue Stick

Step 1

Have each child choose a color of construction paper for the monogram.

Step 2

Next, draw each child’s first initial in block lettering in the center of the construction paper.

Tips:

  • Mom, you may want to do this part for kiddos.
  • Use a lighter colored pencil to draw your letters. I used white on the paper so that there isn’t an obvious outline on the artwork.

Step 3

Next, give each child the monogrammed construction paper, a glue stick, and googly eyes.

 

Kids have blast making this googly eyes monogram! It is a great craft that creates fun bedroom décor kids will love hanging on the wall.

Step 4

Have kids begin gluing the eyes inside of the monogram starting with the largest sized eyes.

Tip:

  • Place the eyes at random over the monogram. You want them to be spread out.

Step 5

After the large eyes have been added begin filling in more of the monogram with the medium eyes.

It is that simple to create custom art for kids’ rooms. They will love making this googly eye monogram and love showing it to family and friends. I do recommend having each child choose one style of googly eyes for a more cohesive look (it will also preempt any arguments during creation). Too many different styles can make the monogram look messy. Luckily there are 4 different styles in the Creative Play Kit which makes sticking with one easy. If you haven’t checked it out yet, don’t forget about the awesome Kids Behavior System that we made last week. The kids love earning their M&M treats and I’m loving the calmer days. See you back here next week for another fun kid’s craft!

Kids have blast making this googly eyes monogram! It is a great craft that creates fun bedroom décor kids will love hanging on the wall.

I’m a nerdy, crafty mom of three adorable little kids. I love writing and creating, but in my non-existent free time I also love karaoke, taking my kids to the zoo, and reading. I got my degree in Science (no idea how that happened) but I took every English class I could get my hands on because, yeah, I’m that girl.
