Fresh Picks: Amazing Easter Projects

The best Easter projects

There’s just something ultra charming about all the spring colors and cute cuddly animals that go hand in hand with Easter. Sure, there’s much more to this day than fluffy bunnies and colored eggs and we hold tight to the real reason for the celebration too, but I can’t help wanting to be a bit more creative and colorful when Easter comes around.

Here’s a list of amazing easter crafts and projects:

Paper Mache roosters and bunnies you’ll want to keep all year round

A simple bunny graphic tee you can whip up in an afternoon

The cutest little Easter egg garland you ever did see

Brightly colored golden eggs

Sweet chocolate bunnies … need I say more?

Candy Bowls, the perfect thing for all sorts of treats

Easter Egg Bath Bombs, now those I’d love to find in my Easter basket!

P.S. – I’m sorry I couldn’t find the actual post for those wooden eggs, the pin says they are created with paint and masking tape. You can see how my friend Amy made hers, they turned out just as cool.

Decorating Kids Rooms With Art

Decorating Kids Rooms With Art

There’s no denying it, my daughter LOVES art. She is happiest when she is creating and because she shares a bedroom with her two brothers (for the moment), it was very important to make her corner of the room all her own. Using her own art to decorate was an obvious and practical way to bring a lot of personality into her space on a small budget.

Inexpensive gallery wall to display kids artwork

A Rotating Art Space

We go through LOTS of art pieces and while we certainly have our favorites, what goes on the wall is ultimately her decision. There are many pieces that stay on the wall all the time, but we keep things fresh with magnetic boards in bright colors. We strung them together to mimic the fiesta style buntings you often see here in Texas.

Note: I linked to similar ones from Amazon, but I think we found ours at Jo-Ann’s and used a 40% off coupon.

Art Gallery Wall

Gallery walls are all the rage and a creative young girl certainly needs a colorful one of her own. We made her gallery wall by painting cheap wooden laser cut frames from Michael’s in bright colors and simply thumbtacking them to the wall. We attach a piece of art in the center and can move them out easily whenever we want. I have noticed artwork that makes it into these fun frames generally stays there for awhile. I love that she saves this wall for her favorite pieces.

We found our frames at Michael’s and used 40% off coupons to keep each of these under $5. We painted them with regular craft paint.

Collaborative Art Projects

Some of my very favorite pieces of art are the projects that took the longest to make and got us all involved in the process. You’ll see one of a kind found things collages on my kids walls, we’ll be sharing more about how we make those next week. Stop back for more details.

Graphic Art

Our style motto is pretty much anything goes as long as she loves. We found some color your own graphic folders with these stylish girls on them at Target and she had such a great time working on them. I love how well they fit in here adding a strong punch of color and grounding the wall a bit.

Craft Projects

We do so many craft projects around here. When we make something that looks like it belongs on the wall, we go ahead and tack it right up there. You’ll see several of the butterfly pieces from our Small Hands Creating Hope banner hanging around the room. I love that this project has lived on long after it was done in our home.

Paintings

My daughter isn’t the only artist in our family. Her favorite aunt loves to create as well and painted us several pieces throughout the years that hold a special place in our hearts. The name print was a gift for my daughter when she was just a baby. I imagine we will be adding some canvases of our own to this space over the summer months.

Bunting

Buntings are a great way to incorporate art into your kids room. Not only can you make them using past art projects, but they can also serve as a wall display with the addition of some decorated clothespins. Here we have some simple glitter circles, but the possibilities for buntings are endless. My friend Jean is always coming up with beautiful bunting projects for every season.

Art Pillows

We made our first art project pillow last spring and we have enjoyed it every day since. It is by far my favorite project we have worked on together and every night as I tuck her into bed and kiss her goodnight that beautiful pillow reminds me of how amazing she is.

We just added two more art pillow projects to her room and they are just as cool but super simple to make. We used Shutterfly’s personalized pillows to upload her artwork and had them shipped and printed within a week. I can’t believe how bright and fun they turned out and how closely the colors match up. I love that I can see each of her individual pen strokes, they are really well done and I am already plotting how I can use them with other projects throughout the house.

Aren’t they fun?
Love these personalized pillows from Shutterfly, look how cool they look using original artwork

Bonus Tip: Bright colorful bedding works in a busy space like this, not only does it allow us to use any color of the rainbow but it also ties the whole room together. I got ours on clearance at Target, but they have a lot of great options there now as well. … I love Target.

Hope you liked all the projects we’ve used to create a unique space for her on a super, thrifty budget. The most expensive thing in here were the Shutterfly pillows but with a good discount code they are every bit worth the price.

Winter Walk: Recharge with Nature

Hi, new friends! I’m Lacy from Living on Love. I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be a new contributor here at Kids Stuff World. I am eager to get to know you all and hope you feel the same.

One thing my family and I take pride in is making a BIG deal out of small moments. I’m a firm believer that the everyday moments, the day-to-day happenings, can be beautiful and significant. After all, that’s what most of life is. This year on Kids Stuff World, I’ll be sharing ways to make life meaningful for your family. Whether it’s a fun project or an adventurous outing, you can be sure it will be simple and significant. It’s about the time spent together that matters most. Let’s get started!
recharge your family with a crisp winter walkI’m not sure where you live, but in my neck of the woods we have had a couple of months of bitter cold, snow, and ice. Only a handful of times has it been nice enough to actually get out and enjoy the weather. The rest of the time we’ve been cooped up inside, with a nice dose of cabin fever.

Once the weather perked up, with highs in the low 50s (a treat for January!) we decided to make a day of it and enjoy some quality family time outdoors. We loaded up the car and headed to our favorite hiking spot at a nearby state park. The weather was perfect. Cool enough that snow and ice were still all around us, but warm enough to truly enjoy some time in the woods.
 simple ways to make a winter walk a fun and simple outing for your family
Since our girls were babies, we have spent tons of time outdoors. Nature has always been a place of adventure and rejuvenation. Since I can remember, being outside has given me a sense of release and purpose. As a family, sometimes all we need to recharge is a good amount of time spent in the wilderness.

Here are some ways to make a winter walk a fun and simple outing for your family…             
  • Dress for the occasion – Appropriate attire is key. Toddlers especially tend to freak out if they are too cold, too hot, wet, etc. We were able to last a long time because our girls were warm and able to move around freely since they were wearing their “adventure clothes,” as we like to call them.

  • Take it slow – There is no rush, especially in the wilderness. Take your time and let your little ones set the pace for your adventure. Take breaks if you need to. Allow yourself to surrender to the clock and enjoy an outing free of time constraints.

  • Notice the details – Take time to stop and look around. Point out things you see or hear to your children. Ask them what they think is interesting or beautiful. From hollowed out logs to frozen waterfalls, our girls were amazed by the things they saw during our winter walk.
