Simple Children’s Garden

This past weekend the boys and I made a small garden. Since we are spending the summer in Oregon Carter and I have been really missing our garden back home. I saw several cute kid’s gardens online and thought it would be fun to make one here for the summer. We bought most of our supplies at the Dollar store, Bi-mart, and Walmart. I really wanted a white picket fence around the garden, but was not successful in finding one. We did manage to find lots of other cute things that turned out just perfect.

Cooper’s cake was super easy to make, but we got so many compliments on how cute it was. It was a four layer cake, frosted with blue frosting out of a store bought container. I was going for simple, so I didn’t want to spend a lot of time making frosting from scratch, that I personally don’t think tastes very good. I then placed gumballs all around the bottom and Crayola crayons on the side of the cake (they’re non-toxic anyway). I put an Elmo candle on top with a few other candles to give it some dimension. I simply wrote Happy Birthday Cooper on top and it was done. After baking the cakes the night before, it took maybe 30 minutes to make. Read the rest of this entry »

Ice Cream Cone Christmas Trees For Toddlers

I saw this adorable idea on pinterest posted by the Hungry Housewife using ice cream cones and turning them into Christmas trees. My son loved this project and they turned out so cute! These are much easier than gingerbread houses and the kids will have just as much fun.
