DIY Wooden Playhouse Makeover Reveal

playhouse makeover diyI am SO excited to share all the details for our DIY wooden playhouse makeover! This playhouse has been a labor of love for a few weeks now, and it’s finally complete. It turned out so whimsical and lovely and functional, and is a dream to give to our girls to play in. This project was so much fun to take on! My husband and I both put our hard work and love into every detail to make it happen, and agree that we need to do DIY projects together more often 🙂

In this post I will be sharing all of our tips, hacks, decor ideas, issues we ran into, and helpful things we learned along the way. I also have a super informative highlight bubble saved on Instagram of our entire DIY process, and those stories are where I went into more detail about the steps in constructing the playhouse.

Keep reading for how we hacked a basic wooden playhouse and turned it into a whimsical, colorful, garden-inspired bungalow! Continue reading

Easter Bunny Garland Activity For Kids

easter bunny wall garland diy activity for kidsI made this DIY Easter bunny garland activity with my toddler and she loved it! I shared how to create this DIY on my Instagram stories the other week and it was a huge hit with everyone. Making your own decor is so rewarding and sentimental, and your kids will love it even more knowing they helped make it with their favorite person.

This Easter bunny garland is an incredibly easy and a very fun activity for kids. My toddler did everything herself except cut out the bunny shapes and use the glue gun – I even let her do the glitter, knowing full well I would end up with a glittery mess afterward. Anything to create those magical memories while we’re staying at home!

Follow my tutorial on Insta if you’re a visual person, or go through the steps below for how to create this garland yourself 🙂 Continue reading

As well as an abundance of ideas on how to live your best life during quarantine. Our main goal as a family during quarantine is to grow closer together, an to take advantage of this abundant togetherness we have.

I hope this post inspires and equips you with realistic ideas and inspiration that will manifest joy, togetherness, creativity, and appreciation in your home during this COVID19 quarantine — and after! Feel free to check out my stay-in story highlight on instagram for tons more ideas on how we do a typical day indoors, too.

I know it’s not easy to be inside all day (as in, not going to our usual spots and keeping a social life and not hanging out with anyone outside of who lives with us). But we must do this for the greater good, and it soon will pass. Let’s make the time we have indoors purposeful and intentional so we can come out of this strong, and still sane!

I’ve also included a free download of our daily homeschool routine
