When we were trying to decide what to do with all of Nyla's books, the usual came to mind, book shelves.  But in our house we're not so usual.  I saw these cute little boxes at a local store and knew our problem was solved!

Pretty & Practical Book Organization

We've had these for awhile and they really do work, Nyla's room is pretty neat, atleast in the book department :)  Nyla's a huge reader & it's super easy for her to grab one or toss one in when she's finished reading.

Can you tell I have summer on my mind!!

This is a little switcheroo on the "cup of dirt" pudding.  Super easy & fun, who doesn't like a little beach for desert?? 
pudding recipes kid food

How to:

Vanilla instant pudding (make according to package directions)
Sour Patch kids
Rainbow candy
Broken graham crackers, & or brown sugar
little umbrellas

Once you have your pudding made, just decorate, some I added brown sugar just because I was playing around - kids totally loved the extra sweetness but I think it was perfect without it.

I stumbled across one of my old craft projects and fell in love with it all over again!

I call it "Portrait Glitterature"
glitter art crafts

How to:
Simply print out one of your favorite photos, grab some fabulous colors of glitter & various glues, toothpicks.

Depending on what area you are covering determines what glue.  For little areas I used good ole' Elmer's glue and just kinda drawed it, bigger areas a glue stick.  You can even use a toothpick dipped in glue to "draw" your glitter details. Then sprinkled the glitter over the glued area.  Allow to dry before starting a new glitter color.  

Don't worry, it doesn't have to be perfect! This project is a little messy but glitter is soo worth it :)

You can really get as detailed as you want, for my picture I wanted Nyla's eye lashes & ice cream to pop, so I concentrated on them.  
I remember this day, she was sooo excited to get ice cream with sprinkles!  (isn't that the coolest, being so little that sprinkles make you super happy!)
