25 Creative Snowflakes

Even though we don’t get any snow where we live, my boys love making it “snow” in their bedrooms by hanging up dozens of paper snowflakes.  I love how creative they get with their creations and I also love finding different types of creative snowflakes for us to try. 25 Creative Snowflakes We moved to the desert 10 years ago and I have to admit that I really miss having a white Christmas.  It snowed here once about 9 years ago but it was only a few flakes that melted within minutes.  I really don’t like the cold, but I do love sitting in a warm house by the fire and watching it snow outside.  Well, paper snowflakes will have to do for me this year and I am loving some of these other creative snowflakes made with all sorts of different craft materials.  We will definitely be making some of these over Christmas break!

Emotions Charades with Inside Out

All opinions are mine alone. #InsideOutEmotions #CollectiveBias My family had the opportunity to see a screening of Inside Out before it was in theaters and I knew I needed to own it.  I loved everything about it and found myself laughing and crying throughout the movie and left with a better understanding of some of the emotions my own children go through. I was so excited to see that it is now out on DVD, so I picked one up at Walmart the last time I was there.  If there is one animated film that you should purchase this holiday season, this is it!  I found it on the end of one of one of the children’s movies displays.

Transformers Matching Game

My youngest boys have a little bit of an obsession right now: Transformers!  And can you blame them?  There are so many Transformers that even little boys can play with.  Since my boys are so excited about them, I thought I would make up a Transformers Matching Game and share with you our favorite new Transformer. Transformers Matching Game When we first started buying Transformers when my oldest was younger, we couldn’t find any that he could actually transform.  In all honestly, I couldn’t transform them either!  We both ended up frustrated.  I know there are many Transformer fans who love the difficult sets, and they really are cool, unless you are 6 and can’t get them to work. So, imagine how excited I was to see so many new Transformers on the market that my youngest boys can transform in just a few easy steps. […]
