THE EASIEST KIDS’ CRAFT EVER FOR UNDER $1: SIMPLE ORIGAMI BOX

I try not to appear too exhausted when my toddler trio (ages 2, 4 and 5) come to me seeking mommy's love and attention, and wanting to do some sort of special activity, just the 4 of us. Their little eyes and minds get so impressed watching mommy take a flat sheet of paper from her printer as I drag myself away from work tasks for a brief moment to also enjoy their always entertaining company. For days like this, I often turn to a quick and easy little origami craft which never ceases to amaze them; and once I have folded enough boxes for each of my littlest daughters, they happily take the boxes away leaving me with several quiet moments to answer a couple emails before I choose to forget work for the rest of day. If you are looking for a quick, easy, no-cutting, no-mess, no-clean-up craft to do with young and old children, check this little origami box out.

EASY, NO-SEW FACE MASK FROM BABY BURP CLOTHS

Don't rush out to the store for face masks when you can find alternative methods at home by up-cycling other items! Here I made myself several masks from my daughter's no-longer-used Gerber burp cloths. These burp cloths are 100% cotton, tightly woven and already sewn in double and/or triple layers! Quick and easy instructions and video on my blog.
