An easy and fun way to make sure kids wear their green on St. Paddy's Day

One Last St. Patrick’s Day Project

St. Paddy’s Day is just over a week away so here’s one more fun project to try with the littles.  It’s a really fun one too – green bracelets made, of all things, popsicle sticks.  The kids will love it – see my full tutorial here.


I also do a weekly roundup of family finds for momtastic and this week good stuff abounds (if I do say so myself).  Along with the fabulous frame wallpaper project above, I’m featuring posts on making time with the kids,  raising creative kids, an incredible list of 75 kid books that build character and more.  You can see it all here.


Hope everyone has a great weekend (maybe you’ll even find a few minutes to tackle some decluttering/organizing and share with us).
