My kids have been helping make dinner for years now but this meal they can make completely on their own. That makes it a favorite around here.

Sew an adorable pioneer dress for your Little House on the Prairie fan! My daughter is ridiculously crazy about Little House on the Prairie. Basically, every day here at my house consists of playing Little House on the Prairie or Star Wars, or both. We are on our second time reading through the book series.

How to make a bug board to turn your kids into backyard scientists. My kids are big fans of bugs. They definitely got that trait from me. I remember as a small child when people would ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up, and then they would be confused when I said I wanted to be an entomologist. I had no idea that they didn’t know what that meant! I grew up being fascinated by how many different bugs there were. I enjoyed collecting them and studying them, and I never really outgrew my fascination with
