This is such an easy and fun project. Just hot glue glue crayons to a canvas and melt with a blow dryer. ⁣

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! ⁣

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.

It’s officially only been a few days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.⁣
⁣
There are so many things I should be doing but I need structure. Otherwise, I fall off course and my house looks like a tornado went through it. So when I saw my friend Amy had created a cleaning and organizing calendar, I asked her if I could share it with all of you and she was gracious enough to agree.⁣

Today starts the first week of “homeschool”. ⁣
⁣
Can I be totally honest? The idea of having to homeschool my kids terrifies me. Mostly because I don’t know if I can give them everything that they get at school. We rely so much on our teachers because they are AMAZING at what they do. We are going to try to make sure we make enough time in each day for every subject. I also want to make sure we incorporate some fun arts and crafts projects and outdoor time. ⁣
⁣
We are grateful for the schools providing a list of online resources. I can only hope that we can keep them on the right track. ⁣

What is your school situation like now that so many are closing?⁣

Thrift Store DIY Frida Kahlo Costume

We love Halloween because it’s an opportunity for our girls to express their individuality and personality! Since buying a ready-made costume can get pretty pricey and limit you to only a handful of options, I challenged our teenager to create her own costume, using only pieces found at our local thrift store. I was pleasantly surprised to see that she was able to put together this DIY Frida Kahlo costume for under $5! Now that’s a great deal.

Frida Kahlo, born Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderon, was born in July of 1907 and was an incredible Mexican painter, known mostly for her self-portraits and portraits inspired by nature and Mexican artifacts. As a mother of three daughters, it’s so important for me to teach my girls about strong, talented women who were able to turn their dreams into success. I love that Lucia chose to honor Frida Kahlo and her own Hispanic heritage by choosing this particular costume as one of her looks. I am so proud of her.

What You’ll Need for Your DIY Frida Kahlo Costume

Colorful Dress: Until Lucia found this dress, she wasn’t sure what her 2nd DIY costume was going to be.  But as soon as she found it, the colorful, fun nature of it immediately reminded her of Frida Kahlo. She was able to find this adorable floral dress for only $4.99.

Jewelry: In the majority of Frida Kahlo’s photos, she is wearing long earrings and a thick gold chain. Lucia had these pieces in her jewelry box already.

Floral Headband: Frida Kahlo almost always had flowers in her hair in her photos. You have a couple of options here. You can either buy some synthetic flowers at your local craft store or find a headband with flowers already on it.  Lucia had this particular headband already.

Makeup: Clearly it would have been a better idea to create a unibrow with a brown/black eyebrow pencil, but since Frida Kahlo didn’t actually have a unibrow, she just chose to accentuate it in her self-portraits, and because she’s a teenager and doesn’t want that photo on the internet, Lucia chose to draw thick eyebrows vs. the unibrow. She also chose a deep red lipstick.

She did a great job with her DIY Frida Kahlo costume, didn’t sh? Make sure to check out her DIY Thrift Store Kim Possible Costume as well!

An inexpensive and fun costume idea. We got everything we need for a DIY Frida Kahlo costume at our local thrift store for less than $5.
