We know well that kids do not need new school supplies every year, but we get used to buying for them. Why not doing easy makeover crafts with kids instead?


I think you could use these ideas with plain items and decorate with washi tapes for Christmas gifts as well. This is the time they usually need new supplies.

We had a “egg” time recently that the kid colored his first Easter eggs at school and would like to make more. Therefore I prepared a dozen of eggs but with non-toxic food coloring and some natural egg dye from food.

Here are some delicious Easter egg recipes with exotic colors, swirl eggs, marbled eggs,  silk tie eggs and many more.

This is the first day for the Year of Horse. Happy Chinese New Year everyone!

 

As my little boy likes asking questions about the Asian children in the playground, I decide to teach him more about Chinese cultures like the Zodiac (which I found the same Zodiac in Japanese plushies too), traditional paper cutting and paper lanterns.
