Mary Kellow -

Thanks for this review! This is probably the best review about Kiwi crate I’ve read!

Livia Wright Taylor -

I hear such great things about Kiwi Crate. I bet this would be a great gift idea… meaning I ask my parents to subscribe for my daughter’s birthday, even if it’s just for a few months. I hate coming up with ideas on my own and I’d love to just have KC send me all the stuff in one box and have at it!

Kidoodle.TV Review & Giveaway

Ok, I’ll admit it. Sometimes I use the TV as a babysitter. I don’t like my kids watching a lot of TV and I’d rather them play outside or do a craft. But sometimes when I need to get dressed in the morning or I need 30 minutes to make dinner, the TV really is […]

Sticky Face – Contact Paper Crafts

Since Jay and I played with contact paper the other day, I wanted Elle to have some fun with it too. Remembering that we made faces with playdough using Picklebum’s faces playdough mat a few days ago, it sparked the idea that we could do something similar with contact paper. Setting up this contact paper craft is […]

Sticky Play – Contact Paper Crafts for Toddlers

Ever since the little boy turned 1, he’s really taken an interest in what his big sister does. Whenever Elle is involved in an activity, the little boy would be right in there getting a piece of the action only to be pushed/moved/shooed by his big sister. The poor boy is so sensitive he’d look at me with some […]

I came across the whole “contact paper & yarn” idea on Pinterest awhile ago. I finally tried it out a few weeks ago with my daughter and she wasn’t as excited about it as I was. :/ Maybe when she’s older. :D
