Easter Egg decorating is a holiday tradition for many families. It’s no secret, though, that dyeing eggs can result in a serious mess. It’s a close second to carving pumpkins when it comes to the messiest of holiday crafts! By replacing the dye with other materials such as paints, colored pencils, markers, and crafting (washi) tape, your family can create spectacular Easter eggs with less stress.
At this point in the season, we are dreaming of the end of winter and love to start planning spring break ideas just to get ourselves warm. Cameron has tried on every bathing suit she owns. Twice. And Kane has his suitcase at the ready. So the kids were super excited to try out a few new travel activities for OOLY!
When I was a child I could not wait to make valentines with my mom every year in early February. We would put all our materials out on the dining room table and spend an entire afternoon with doilies, clip art and rubber cement. I’m calling these valentines old school because there’s nothing digital involved with these fun love notes – just stickers, markers and a little creativity!
Oh my goodness – is it really January already?! Where did 2017 go?!
Starting off 2018 on the right foot with my notebook, I decided I would do my organizing by decorating my pages using rainbow colors for January. The other months will get new designs later on!
This year I’m using the Flipside Double Sided Notebook as my planner. It’s awesome because one half of the notebook has blank pages and then you can flip it over it has lined paper too. So handy for lists or doodling! And you can tell which side you are on by the cover color.
Did you know that the North Pole is in the middle of the Arctic Ocean surrounded by Alaska, Canada, Greenland, and Russia? It is also home to our OOLY pals, Arctic Animals Sticky Tab friends. Join us while we show you how to make these cute, up-cycled DIY paper ornaments that will bring the arctic circle into your home for the holidays (without freezing your finger tips)!
