Kid’s Thank You Cards

Kid's Thank You Card + Free Printable at DoingSplendid.com

Teaching Kids to Sew

Teaching Kids to Sew at DoingSplendid.com

Teaching kids to sew can be so much fun! Our daughter has been learning how to sew and one of my favorite ways to teach sewing is by having “Sew Along with Me” sessions. When we do this, we set up both of our sewing machines and then do each step of the sewing process […]

Homemade Puffy Paint

Homemade Puffy Paint at DoingSplendid.com

A long time ago, when I very first started using Pinterest, I saw a recipe for homemade paint. I actually didn’t visit the website. I only just read the description of the pin which said the recipe for the homemade paint. The other day I decided to try it out with the kids to make […]

Did you know that if you cut a green pepper (or any other colored pepper) that you get a perfect 4 leaf clover shape? I saw a friend do this a few years ago, so we decided to try it out for ourselves for a little shamrock painting! The materials needed are pretty self-explanatory, but […]
