Kids Activity Gear Bag

 

Swim class is what ours is going to be used at the moment though we foresee dance class picking up again this fall : ) Maybe sports for you?!⚽️

 I realized this summer that with my girls ages (5 and 8 years old) not only do they want more responsibility though I also no longer have too or need to carry around a large giant bag for both them. They can take care and carry their own towels, googles and snacks in a bag. Major motherhood upgrade!! 

It's funny how fast they grow : )

So what I used to MAKE these for my girls?

Canvas tote bag purple

 Sponge paint brush

Card-stock (DIY rainbow arch stencil)

Scissor and or X-acto knife 

Gaffer tape or painters tape  


Happy MAKING - Warmly, Steph 💜

DIY Art Display for Kids Room





 Our art displays have certainly gotten larger over the years (because of course!) yet I love the simple look and over all idea of the design's I've made through the years though this time I used wooden glue and transformed a wooden plaque into our own whimsical floral creation for my youngest to hang and display her art.  Along with a more pop of color💗

Supplies and details of where everything is from? Listed out below.


Supplies

Wooden Frame Plaque 

Clothes Pins

Wood glue (this is what I used here)

Pink Paint (similar shade  here!)

Wooden flowers (for base frame)

Add-on Flowers to make it "3D"  here and here

Gold Paint (MY NEW FAV!) because you only need 1 coat.

Thin Paint Brushes


Art Displayed
