Non-Candy Easter Basket Stuffers for Toddlers

Hi Mamas!

 

Candy for EVERY holiday is getting old… and yes, that is me being bitter. ALL this candy, and I have very little self control. I end up eating waaaaaaaay too much. Why can’t I just eat all the candy I want without consequences via stomachache and weight gain? C’mon!

 

Besides that, it really isn’t good for the kids. I try to ration it, but then there usually comes the day when I just want them to EAT IT ALL… and be done with it!

 

Don’t get me wrong, I am not boycotting all candy. I cannot live without chocolate. The kids need to be kids. I am just trying to cut back because I feel like it has become a little bit of a problem in our house.

 

Instead of packing the little plastic eggs full of candy for the kids’ Easter baskets this year, I decided to find non candy alternatives because they will still be getting candy from Easter egg hunts that we go to anyway.

 

I wanted to share what I found for all of you mamas needing inspiration for toddler Easter baskets.

Country Christmas Centerpiece

 

Hey Mamas!

 

Who else here can’t get enough of this buffalo check print?? Or wait is it buffalo plaid? Tartan? Whatever it is called, it is pretty, and it is everywhere! Of course my Christmas centerpiece wouldn’t be complete without it.

 

Since Christmas is my absolute favorite holiday, it is hard for me to hold off on decorating. Life is short, why wait? I headed off to Target for inspiration… and well, we now the rest goes. You don’t simply go in to Target without snagging some pretty things.

Christmas Family Traditions: Spreading Cheer with Betty Crocker Cookies

Hello Mamas!

 

The Holiday Season is upon us! It is my absolute favorite time of year, but it sure is busy isn’t it? As mothers we run things. We get things done, but as I am strolling up and down the Christmas aisles at Walmart with my littlest one in tow… I start to think about what is really important this season: Christmas family traditions, and spreading cheer. What is a better way to do that than with sugar cookies decorated by tiny humans? Haha. They might not be pretty and perfect, but they are cute and delicious!

The last 2 years my toddler and I have decorated sugar cookies… and of course shared them with guests, but I really want to teach my kids what the Christmas season is all about. They will get to feel how good it is when you spread holiday cheer. We decided to spruce up our sugar cookie game without the stress by using these quick Betty Crocker cookies.
