Paper Plate Snake Puppet Craft

Here's a craft your kids can play with when they've finished making it! This cute little snake was made from a paper plate and a few simple household and craft supplies. It was simple to make and  easy to involve my kids with so I thought it'd be a good one to share here!

Here's what you need for this project:

Popsicle Stick PomPom Spider Craft

We are in Halloween craft mode over here; two spider posts in a row! Earlier this week it was a spider treat and today it's a simple spider craft. These would be fun to hang with fishing wire, just about anywhere, to give a creepy (yet cute) vibe. :)

Here's what you'll need to make your own:

DIY Spider Pops Video Tutorial

Katrina woke up sick on Thanksgiving morning so she (& Ken) missed our extended family Thanksgiving dinner. She stayed home from school yesterday to finish recovering even though she was feeling a lot better than she was on Monday. We decided to break up the relaxing on the couch & watching My Little Pony routine with a little Fall crafting.

We gathered our supplies and grabbed some tootsie pops to make these cute (and super simple) Halloween themed treats.

Fun Fall Shoes for Kids & Tweens with Skechers

I have big feet. I've had big feet since I was pretty young, and I will never forget the time my mom took me shoe shopping at a department store and the sales lady reacted with total shock when she realized how much bigger my feet were than her own. I was embarrassed and I felt my big feet were something to be ashamed of. To be honest, I'm still not totally over it. I don't want my kids to feel this way, so I'm doing my best to help Talia to find awesome age-appropriate shoe styles despite the fact that we can already share shoes.

Parks Canada Xplorers Program for Kids

During our Eastern Canada Road Trip, we discovered that Parks Canada has a special Xplorers Program for kids and families. At some Parks Canada locations, they will give your children an Xplorers booklet filled with fun activities and tasks to accomplish. During your visit, your children complete some of them and at the end of the visit, they receive a certificate and a little "dog tag" style souvenir that shows where they went.

We discovered this while we were on Prince Edward Island. I wish we had known about it at the start of our trip because it would have been so nice to have stopped at Canada Parks in each province that we visited! We got pretty close on our way back home, though!
