Happy Birthday Elmo!!


Photo Source:


I don’t know about you but Elmo has been a BIG part of all three of my children’s lives, from my 18 year old all the way down to the 4 year old.  So, I was a little excited to hear that it was his birthday. Go figure!!  Can you believe that Elmo has been around since the 80’s?

When I told my little ones they seemed to share in my excitement.  So just for fun here are some fun Elmo Craft Projects that I found.

Elmo’s Cut & Paste Activity – found here at the FunwithMamaBlog.


Elmo Coloring Page – found here at Coloring-Book.Info.


Sesame Street Clay Pots ** – found here at ButtonsBobbinsandOtherBits. (This one is my favorite.)



I picked the Cut and Paste Activity to do with my four year old.  She is at that age where she loves any excuse to use scissors.  These others are definitely going on my Toddler Craft To Do List.



It’s that time again…

The end of the year always brings out the “Susie Homemaker” in me.  With the crisp weather, out comes the Fall Wreaths, Cinnamon Brooms, and Pumpkins, and this year the owls. It’s as if the change in the temperature deepens my desire to make my house warm and inviting for my family.

I am always looking for new seasonal craft projects to do with the kids, and to do alone(even though my hubby swears that all my alone projects, somehow include him). And, as my own special requirement, I am always try to look for things that I don’t see everyone else doing.

So here’s my bucket list, over the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing the final results.  I should warn you that I almost always put my own spin on the original ideas.

Craft ideas found here and here.
