Keeping Kids Entertained Inside and Babbabox

During the NH Winter months I spend a lot of time hoping that I can hibernate, while my kids spend time wanting something fun to do. While I am usually a super creative Mom of three, there are times {cough} when I get the need to just stay inside. My outdoor children are not so keen on that idea but with the negative temperatures we have been having in NH lately, being outside is not an option. When it is below 0, at about -24 degrees F, it is not healthy to be outside at all. We own a variety […]

Searching for new Kid Friendly Craft Ideas

The three kids and I absolutely love doing various crafts. Some of the crafts or things we have ended up doing together are; latch hook, crotchet, baking, friendship bracelets and collages. Honestly that list is small computed to what we do as a family together. Due to the fact that all three kids plus me enjoy crafting, I am constantly on the look out for things we can make or do together. Most recently my Gram started making goat’s milk soap and that got me thinking, while the process sounds like it takes a long time for this type of […]

Craft Tutorials Assist in our Family Craft Time

When my munchkins and I sit down to do craft time we usually just pull out all of our supplies and have fun doing whatever each of us wants. After all of our craft things are done we then share what we did and discuss how we did them. It’s fun for the kids to not only interact doing creative crafting ideas of their own, but for them to feel proud in completing a project on their own. Occasionally I will get online and research crafts to do, such as my most recent venture to read a blog post about […]

Kitchen Supplies for an Inviting Kitchen

I walk into my house, I look over at the kitchen because it is in view as soon as you walk into the door. I have an open concept kitchen and living room area. The kitchen is ugly, the table is ugly, however, I am thankful for what I do have it’s just that some days I get online and I think about kitchen sinks and how I really don’t care for the one I have. When I start doing the dishes I feel I need more room for dishes and a better sink in general, but again … it […]
