I was going to write a big ol’ something about the importance of social distancing. But instead, I’ll just give you the cliff notes version... ⁣

“What if we capture the beauty of the whole world in ONE big, bold book? A book that will transport readers to countries across the globe, one bedtime story at a time?” AD: What if I told you that book exists? The Book of Cultures is a 120 page book featuring 30 illustrated stories with characters from different countries, alongside activity pages with puzzles and fun facts. With everything going on in the world, now is the time to teach your children how important it is to embrace diverse perspectives, be tolerant and compassionate and understand how to cooperate with people from all corners of the planet. We are all human beings and we all have so much to teach one another. The Book of Cultures is available for the next 15 days on Kickstarter. It’s perfect for ages 3+, and all kids at heart.  @worldwidebuddies #bookofcultures  Pre-order your copy now: www.worldwidebuddies.com  #bookclub #bookobsessed #bookpic #booksbooksbooks #booklife #bookworms #bookstoread #summerjam #summer2020 #readingisfun #readinglist #readingtime #readersofinstagram #ilovereading #instaread #teachkindness #teachthemyoung #colorsplash #streetartist #streetart #wynwoodwalls #miamiart #kickstarter #diversity #diversityandinclusion #loveoneanother #inthistogether #oneworld #beautifulcolors

It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣
⁣
What do you miss most?⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

#ad This is a time of uncertainty throughout the world. As a self-employed family, we are having to make important decisions, to make sure that we are saving and spending our money wisely.⁣
⁣
After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣
⁣
There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number. They offer nationwide coverage and their 4G LTE runs on the nation’s fastest, most advanced networks. The company is online only so they cut out the middlemen and can pass the savings onto us! ⁣

I shared this picture on Monday on Instagram and realized I had never shared the actual tutorial for this cute and easy craft for your kids this Spring! All you need is a few supplies!  I’m excited to reveal our “Surprise Chick In Egg” Easter or Spring craft idea!

Supplies You’ll Need:

Foam Sheets (we chose glitter)
Construction Paper
Clothespins
Small Googly Eyes
Orange Marker
Scissors
Hot Glue or Adhesive Squares

Surprise Chick in Egg Craft Directions:

cutting a square out of glitter foam

cutting an oval shape out of glitter foam

First, you’ll want to choose what color egg you want to make. Cut out a small rectangle and then cut an oval (egg shape) out of that rectangle.

cutting a cracked egg out of glitter foam

Next, you’ll want to cut that oval shape in half and then cut zig zags on each piece (on the larger side) so that it looks like a cracked egg. Once you have the two pieces, you’ll want to attach them to the clothespin. The easiest way we found to do this, is to open the clothespin a bit and use either hot glue or adhesive squares (I had to cut mine really small so they didn’t show).

Now it’s time to work on your chick. Take yellow construction paper (you can also use card stock or any thicker paper) and cut a small square. After making sure it shows when you open up the egg, cut it so that it’s rounded on the top. Add two tiny googly eyes and draw on an upside down triangle with your orange marker, right underneath. This is your chick’s beak.

Now we need to attach the chick to the clothespin. Again, you can use either hot glue or adhesive squares (I had to cut mine really small so they didn’t show). This will go on the front, bottom of the chick. Turn the clothespin with the glitter egg upside down so that the egg is facing your table (like the picture above). The chick will be attached on the bottom part of the clothespin.

When you turn it over and squeeze the clothespin, surprise! Your chick should pop out. You can make these in a variety of colors, use non-glitter, change the color of the chick. There are so many possibilities. You can even think outside the box and make a bunny instead of a chick. A bunny in an egg? Sure! Why not!

My girls loved making these and then putting on a little puppet show. If you use the adhesive squares and childproof scissors, this is totally safe for the kids to do on their own. Of course, if you need to use hot glue or sharper scissors, or your kids are younger, adult supervision is suggested.

Love this chick in egg craft and looking for more Spring crafts? Make sure to check out our bunny bookmark video tutorial and bunny mask tutorial too! And if you try them out, let us know what your kids thought! We’d love to hear.
