Easy DIY Back to School Project // How to Make a Tassel

I’ve been adding tassels to everything these days.  My daughter has to wear a uniform to school, so we are always brainstorming ways to keep her outfits unique.  It’s so easy to make a tassel with a simple package of embroidery floss, so we’ve been adding them to sweatshirts, pencil pouches and everything in between!

I just wrote an easy tassel DIY over on Little Skye kids, so if your looking for a 5 minute project go check it out!




Taking the Time to Teach Your Kids Something New

I’m still picking thread off my clothes from the kimono-making party I had with my daughter Jillian and her friends yesterday.  I posted the kimono DIY here and it was as simple as sizing down the pattern by a few inches to make it kid-size.  Summer is definitely the time to teach kids something new, something COOL.  Without the pressure of homework and sports practices, we have more hours in the day to play and plan out purposed activities.

I’m over on Modern Parents Messy Kids today talking about Taking the Time to Teach Your Kids Something New.  And I gave lots of examples, so hopefully it’ll inspire you to get out there!  Have fun!  Learn something!  (PS.  We only have a few weeks left before school starts again!)
