Kids Craft Activity - Easy Cut & Paste Poinsettia

Kids Craft Activity - Easy Cut & Paste Poinsettia

This is a super easy craft activity you can do with your kids this holiday season. All you need to do is go to our freebies page and download the free template (download here). If possible, print the free template on a thick-stock paper (100gsm or more). Once you have the template printed, cut out all parts and glue them together to form a beautiful poinsettia.  The finished creation can be used to make wonderful greeting cards. We made a few for my daughter's pre-school teachers. You can also add it onto a wrapped gift instead of using a ribbon....

Exclusive Set for the Delft Mama Community

Exclusive Set for the Delft Mama Community

Few weeks ago, I was asked by Delft Mama to come up with a special offer to celebrate the World Children's Day on the 20th November. Delft Mama is a non-profit organization promoting the well-being and integration of international mothers-to-be and mothers of young children in and around Delft, the Netherlands. My life in Delft would have been a different story if it wasn't for Delft Mama. I made new friends through the organization and the community continues to inspire me.  So when the opportunity came about, it was very easy for me to say "yes! count me in!". I...

Make Your Own Paper Mache Jack-o'-lantern

Make Your Own Paper Mache Jack-o'-lantern

  I get so excited around Halloween. It was one of my favourite events growing up (after Christmas of course!) and it still is! Growing up in Canada, I loved dressing up in costumes and go trick-or-treating. I was also fascinated by the effort some people put into decorating their homes.    Halloween is a recent thing in the Netherlands and trick-or-treating is only done in an organized manner where someone from the neighbourhood takes the lead and gathers willing participants. For the last two years, we have taken part in such organized trick-or-treating. My daughter was too young to...
