Snowman Essential Oil Air Freshener

Christmas is the perfect time to get the whole family together and make really fun crafts to give. I found this Snowman Essential Oil Air Freshenerย from Designs by Miss Mandeeย and I just knew it would be a big hit!

This time of year is a great time to teach our kids about giving and not just getting what is on their own Christmas list – plus if your kids are anything like mine… they LOVE craft time! My girls love it when they can make something and give it to someone they love.

One reason this idea stuck out to me is because we love using essential oils to freshen our whole house naturally. About 10 years ago, we started making steps to live a more natural life… and that started with eating whole foods and quickly moved to using essential oils to remove some chemicals and toxins from our home (for cleaning and freshening). ย Plus, Essential Oils also can make really great DIY gifts just in time for Christmas and these Snowman Air Fresheners were really fun to make (plus the girls got to practice their cutting skills). read more

Frozen Snowman Craft

Do you want to build a snowman?

Our family fell in love with recent Disney’s movie Frozen. We have had a week long of snow on the ground here in Richmond, so making a snowman outside doesn’t sound as fun anymore. Making a snowman craft inside where it is warm sounded like the prefect option. 

This snowman craft is made of foam squares that I bought off of Amazon (because I seriously buy everything off there). 

These are the googly eyes I bought from Amazon:

I used some colored buttons and some brown pipe cleaners to finish our snowman off perfectly. read more

Ribbon Bows for a Rainy Day

It was a very cold, rainy day here in Virginia… Time for either cooking or crafting!

Aidalyn also took a great nap, so I caught up on The Biggest Loser and made some hair bows. I made one black polka dot one and one green polka dot one. I need to go get some more alligator clips and ribbon to make more!

This is the tutorial I used: Bow Tutorial

I put in those extra pictures at the end to show off Aidalyn’s funny faces : P

It looks like more rain for tomorrow too, yucky! What fun can I get into? read more
