Creative Learning to Help Prevent the Summer Slide

At the end of every school year I try to help our kids avoid the infamous summer slide by spending a little time each day working on math, reading, and writing. But I also recognize that they’ve worked so hard all year and I aim to make it at least a little more playful, and OOLY has the perfect colorful school supplies to do just that! We do a variety of activities, but I always find workbooks to be a good supplement to the other games and projects we have planned for the summer.

Easter Egg Printable Coloring Page

When I was little I would have one single, modest egg hunt on Easter morning. Nowadays Easter celebrations have become a bit more complex. With all the fun and craziness, sometimes we forget to just take time to sit, relax, and color. Here’s your chance for a little bit of “me” or “we” time. This Easter egg coloring page can be enjoyed in a single sitting and won’t take all day to color. And it’s also a great page to enjoy with children.

Kawaii Inspired DIY Mason Jar Pen, Marker and Pencil Holders

If you’ve ever seen my Instagram page you know I’m a huge fan of pens, pencils, markers, and all things rainbow. I’m always looking for beautiful ways to organize my art supplies, and mason jars are a great solution. And while I think this project is perfect for keeping your own art supplies in order, they’d also work great in a classroom or a kids’ craft area.
