    Our Top 5 Tips for Cutting with Scissors (from an OT)

    Cutting with scissors is a task that comes easy to some, but there are many children who struggle to master this activity that they will use over and over again throughout their school years. And frustration and tears are often the result of their efforts. But don't loose hope. There are so many tips and tricks that I want to teach you to help your kids not only master using scissors but learn to love cutting to make all kinds of creative projects.

This would be a great activity for an end of the season soccer team party or just for fun with your own kids on a rainy afternoon when they can't be out on the soccer field.

    Easy Skeleton Craft {with FREE template}

    You are going to absolutely love this easy skeleton craft. Stick around to the end, and I will tell you how I make this moveable paper skeleton craft into a dancing skeleton.

And, for some reason, I also thought..."Hey, those clothespins would make great ribs!" I cannot explain why my mind works likes this (believe me, people have been trying to figure me out for years), but this time my strange thoughts lead to a really fun and interactive Halloween craft for kids! I know that your kiddo will love it (and maybe even learn a little something along the way...just don't tell them that). Don't miss out on making...
