Hamper Hoop DIY: keep kids’ clothes off the floor

A little while ago I shared some of our favorite ways for making cleaning fun for kids. Well, we have one more trick up our sleeve, and it’s so easy you can do it too!

My little guys actually loves to put his laundry in the hamper and clean up his clothes. We spent one dollar on this project and we no longer have clothes on the floor or have to remind him to pick up. 

We love this fun way to help kids put their clothes in the hamper!

Ghost Pops: cute Halloween craft with plastic grocery bags

I love a project that is cute, easy, and uses up the millions of plastic bags laying around the house.

These simple little ghosts are something I used to make with tissues or fabric on more than a few Halloweens. This time, we’re jazzing up Dum-Dums with white plastic bags.

Happy Halloween!

Pop Up Camper Remodel: New Cushions

I can’t tell you how excited I am by these camper cushions! I had an idea in my head, I couldn’t find anyone who had done them the same way, and I knew they would be great!

I wanted to sew our cushions, I wanted them to be removable so they could be cleaned, and I didn’t want a zipper.

The end result was exactly what I wanted!

Pop up Camper Remodel: Painting and Flooring

So, if your like us and you’re wondering how important it actually is to take the time for some serious prepsanding and priming or a special kit – or if you can just wing it with a paint with primer and a decent cleaning… I’m here to tell you, it depends on your plans for your camper.

For us, we know we want to take it out this summer, we know it will take a lot of abuse, and we know it won’t be long before the kids are too busy for camping trips.

We decided to go the “good enough” route because we bought this camper to be used and enjoyed. We will find out if we only find a chance to use it a couple times a year, or if we eventually want to go bigger because we use it so often. This camper is our trial run.

Make an easy display for party decorations, shower games, holiday cards, or photos

I shared the easy things we did to make my cousin’s couples shower a complete success.

Next to the Tie-the-Knot relay, which was a blast, the most fun for me was making them a keepsake / party decoration / game.

Couples Wedding Shower Games and Activities

I recently co-hosted a couples shower with my cousins and their spouses. They had the food covered but it was up to me to get creative and come up with the invites, decorations, games, and keepsakes.

I can’t believe how well it went, and everything came together relatively stress-free.

I Do BBQ

I happened to be looking through Pinterest right when my cousin called to discuss the couples wedding shower for our other cousin. When she mentioned they were thinking of doing BBQ, I couldn’t have been more excited.

We have spent the majority of our time outside, the kiddos and I are getting all sorts of exercise, and it has me itching for some summer projects.

Two-Minute T-Shirt Cape for Your Little Superhero! {with Superhero Mask}

Do you have a little superhero at home?

If your kiddo is anything like mine, you are always being asked to tie a cape around their back or tuck a blanket into their shirt. This game is the biggest pain in the tush for us parents because we are constantly re-tying, re-tucking, or fixing those things!

Two-minute T-shirt Superhero Cape

Such a pain!

I came up with a no-sew cape that can be made in two minutes with something everyone can find around their house! It also will never need to be tied and little ones can take it on and off themselves.

Freedom!
