Make Your Own Kids Tutu








Sew an elastic together to fit your childs waist. 
Messure the tulle to the length you would like your tutu to be and double it.
Cut you tulle.
Fold it in half and simply knot it around the elastic 
You can also put 2 pieces of tulle together and tie it as one ! 
I found all the supplies at the dollar store .... it cost me $8 to make it :) 
You can even make a matching bow :)

Learning to tell time




My daughter is 3 and 1/2  and she's always telling us the time ! She's knows the hour but when it come to the minutes it's a little more difficult.
I found this great idea and hopefully it will help her and your little ones too ;)
All I did was cut out shapes and right the minutes... using double sided tape, stuck them on and voila !!
