My toddler (2) does a pretty great job with naptime from 1-3:30, UNLESS we try to put our 5 month old in her crib in the next room. The 5 month old makes noises and sometimes cries while getting settled, and it wakes my toddler up every time and she will not go back to sleep then. (This is my current situation 😑) I’ve heard ideas like hanging blankets on the walls or putting full bookshelves in... More
My four year old is all excited to build a gingerbread house. But every other brand I look online has horrible reviews. Most of them seem to have problems with the “glue”. Are there any brands that Winnie parents have had luck with? I would hate for my little boy to be disappointed.
I recently learned that any gift wrap that is shiny or has decorative foil on it isn’t recyclable! So I’m looking for some creative materials I can use to wrap gifts and reduce waste this year. Newspaper is always a classic, but can be a little dirty. Any ideas? 💡
I want to do some craft like things for our kids such as a blanket made of old onesies, memory box, tradition like things, etc. but am having a hard time looking things up and finding things. Anyone have cute things they do as their kids grow up? Or know what to search to find stuff? Thank you!

So as a first time mom I was obsessed with my new baby and the little clothes and parties for him. Even throughout my pregnancy I was so proud of my baby bump and everything. I know there are books and keepsakes but often there isn't much time when you can write or you forget to put things in them.

Saw this online and had to share! If your kids are like mine and can’t put the caps back on markers to save their lives, get some liquid watercolor and soak the marker tips overnight. You can use cups for this or an ice cube tray. Amazingly, it works! Just make sure to get the washable stuff 😅
This one is cheap, easy and super fast to put together and only requires a sheet or sheer fabric (I used this $10 IKEA curtain: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NBUEVKG), 3 safety pins, and sticky-back black felt. Just cut two rectangular equal size pieces of fabric, then gather one long edge of each and pin together at the shoulders. For the third pin, gather some of the side drapes into the cen... More
Does anyone have any suggestions for homemade gifts for children? Thinking ahead for Christmas. The only gift I saved from childhood is a doll my mother made me one year. I played with it all the time and saved it for my own kids. I have three under four and would love to make something that will (hopefully) have a little more meaning one day.
I want to keep her busy without tv and mobile though she doesn't watch much, but I want to keep her engaged in anything DIY preschool activities please suggest. thanks in advance
Looking for ideas on a really good makeup, probably stage, for the older kids for Halloween. We get really into it, and I’m just sick to death of the drug store Halloween makeup/face paint that rubs off on them and their clothes after 30 minutes or a sip of milk. Any ideas or brands?
