My first OhDeeDoh DIY

I absolutely LOVE this site. I go there every day. Not only do they have adorable ideas on decorating for kids, they have all sorts of adorable DIY ideas that have become instant obsessions until my kids have their own.

Like this weather board.

Here is ours so far...

Madee runs to Charlie when he gets home from work saying, "Cold hands? Cold hands?" And she just is so aware of changes in mood and environment lately.

It is our new ritual to look up the weather in the morning and decide what we might do and how we might dress appropriately.!


I can't wait to do a play kitchen and a modern dollhouse!

Does anybody have another quick, educational DIY to challenge me with that will inspire the girls? I would love to hear about it!

Always looking for fun ideas and reasons to go to the craft store!

That's a cute calendar...

A DIY activity or project or toy? I am fuzzy. But I can feel the excitement you have for doing crafts and things with your kids and that's pretty cool. I really like puppets and puppet theaters.

And big boxes. Big boxes are way too much fun for kids. Give 'em a bucket of paint and a box and you'll be amazed with what they create...

This is seriously the cutest thing I have ever seen. Do you mind if I ask where you got your supplies? I love all the details and the colors!

i went all out in the scrapbooking area of michaels
i took it element by element for rain, snow, sun - and then fell in love with some things i hadn't expected to include!

and they also have these adorable paint your own teeny wooden cut outs - the rest was foam board and cardboard and glue and tape!

madee's favorite is partly cloudy chance of rainbows! she picks that one every day!
