Homemade Bubbles Recipe

Charlotte and I have been enjoying the warm weather out on our porch blowing bubbles together. Simple pleasures right? We made our own bubble mix and were somewhat happy with the mix until my good friend Jackie passed along an even better recipe that saved the day and makes enough bubbles for months for about $1. We use them…

Homemade Monochromatic Crayons

Earlier this week we were hit with a freak hail storm and we were more or less trapped inside. We decided to explore within our walls and make some new crayons.

Finding a Rhythm (with Waldorf-Inspired Daily Rhythm Printable)

Patchwork pumpkins, what a fun fall idea. These pumpkins make great decorations throughout November and they last much longer than jack-o-lanterns since you won’t be carving them. We wanted Charlotte to have the ability to decorate her own pumpkin without sharp knives and so we cut up pieces of tissue paper and covered the pumpkin…
