Before having kids, Halloween was just a so-so holiday that really only served to pave the way for Christmas (in my biased opinion, at least ;-)). But AFTER having kids, Halloween became so much more! Kids LOVE Halloween and it can easily turn into one of those holidays that is never forgotten…regardless of the time of year. And that’s exactly the case with these fun Halloween books for kids.
They’re perfect for getting excited in September and October, but really you’ll probably find yourself reading them all year long!
There are appearances from a lot of the regular favorites – the Berenstain Bears, the Little Blue Truck, and Pete the Cat. And also some new favorites that are great enough to stand on their own.
No matter which of these Halloween books you pick, your kids will love them and they will certainly elevate an already fun and exciting holiday!
One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is all the fun crafts that I get to do with my kids. Whether to use for decorations or save for gifts, it’s such a great way to be festive and make the most of the season. Which is what makes these DIY Christmas ornament kits for kids so awesome.
They come with all the supplies your child will need to complete a Christmas ornament and then you can save it to use as a gift, or decorate your own tree with them!
But more importantly, this is such a fun way to spend a holiday afternoon with the kids…and you don’t need to pull out all of your own supplies. These will come with everything.
And if you use an Advent calendar like we do, these are PERFECT fillers that go beyond just candy or trinkets.
I hope you get a chance to try one of these craft kits! Have a fun and happy holiday season!
Journaling to relieve anxiety is one of the greatest tools that you’ll ever develop. It is life-changing, easy, and reliable. These journal ideas for anxiety relief will help you get started so you can experience this for yourself.

The holiday season is finally upon us and one of the best ways to help usher in the first big day is with these fun Halloween movies for kids!
Nothing makes Halloween more fun than a bunch of kids that are really excited to celebrate and Halloween movies are such a great way to get the holiday started early.
Some of these movies are creepy (but still good for kids) and others are just cute and fun…but all are Halloween-themed!
So update your Netflix queue with these great Halloween movies for kids and cozy up with some popcorn. This is a great way to spend a rainy October afternoon (or weekend).
If there’s one worry I hear the most from fellow mom bloggers, both new and old, it’s this: “I think my blog’s too broad. I need to niche-down but I don’t know how.” This worry has haunted me from the very beginning of my first blog…and to this day, it still sneaks into my head sometimes.
But the reality is that this just isn’t true! You don’t need a well-defined niche to have a successful blog. Some of the most successful blogs out there are massive, with so many different topics and categories that they basically become experts in everything.
You can succeed with a broad topic blog. People do it everyday!
There are a lot of fun things for kids to do over the summer. But when your kids are staying at home with you, you don’t just want to keep them busy. You want to keep them engaged and, dare I say, maybe even learn something in the process…which is why you need some really fun summer challenges for kids.
Summer challenges are such a fun solution and your kids will really get excited about the process, which will make them LOVE what they’re doing.
I can’t tell you how excited I am at this discovery. I’m a total LUSH bath bomb addict, but as you may or may not know, those things are expensive! They are hands down the highest quality bath bombs you will find, but at $7-$8 a bomb, it becomes a true luxury.
But I can’t pay that much every time I want to relax in a bath!
