{ Printable Squirrel Craft }


Lorelai crafted a squirrel this morning and assembled it this afternoon. This was on my to-do craft list for our Maryland visit, but we never got around to it. When we would ride the four-wheeler around on the farm, Lorelai would spot out squirrels in the trees and on the road. She got excited every […]

{ Printable Unicorn Craft }

Unicorn Craft

Per Lorelai’s request, I made her another unicorn craft to paint and assemble. We did this one ages and ages ago, but I wanted to switch things up this time. She painted it this afternoon after we got back from the pool. (She swam without floaties for the first time today – eek!!) Printable Instructions […]

{ Patriotic Star Craft }

Printable Patriotic Star Craft

First, please excuse the really bad process pictures. My apartment has 0 natural light, it was way too hot to craft outside, and my big flash is out of batteries. I had to use my on-camera flash which is pretty much useless. Anyway, I’ve been slacking on patriotic crafts this year. And, since the 4th […]

{ Printable Mermaid Craft }


Lorelai asked me a loooong time ago to make her a mermaid craft and I finally got around to it this morning. She wanted her to look like Ariel from the Little Mermaid, so she gave her red hair. As for the printable, careful cutting! I had to squeeze things in really close to get […]

{ Oriole Bird Craft }

Coloring & Painting

The oriole is the Maryland state bird. It seemed appropriate to do this one while on our ‘vacation’ here in Maryland. Lorelai sat beside me when I was designing the printable and was excited to finally get to do it this morning. Unforunately, we don’t have any black paint here, so we improv’d and used […]

{ Printable Goat Craft }

Lorelai Painting

Lorelai has been asking to do a goat for ages, but I saved it for when we were in Maryland. My dad has a beloved goat, Billy Bob, who is more dog than goat. Lorelai loves taking him treats while here. =) She chose to make this goat yellow with purple hooves/hair/horns. Print below! Printable […]

Printable Tractor Craft – Version II


Here I am, getting behind again. Not too surprising though, considering we’re on ‘vacation’, right? Last week Lorelai crafted a printable tractor for her tractor-obsessed cousin. His birthday party was on Saturday and he loved it! I completely forgot to get an “after” pic, but it’s supposed to look like the one above. Sorta. I […]

{ Printable Firefly Craft }

Printable Firefly craft

Lorelai and her little cousin (T) did this firefly craft before lunch today. I was able to cut Lorelai’s after lunch but T’s is still drying. They both had fun with the paint, especially T. He used 5 different colors on his! Lightning bugs are just now coming out here in Maryland. At the memorial […]

{ Printable Horse Craft – Version II }

Printable Horse Craft

I had so many cute pictures of Lorelai doing this craft on my parents’ front porch. Unfortunately, I ended up deleting them to make room for my time lapse pictures. I completely forgot about them! Boo. Lorelai chose orange for the horse and red for her hair (basic yarn). She told me that she wanted […]

{ Black-Eyed Susan Flower Craft }

Painting on the front porch

Ah, vacation. We’re finally up in Maryland (got here yesterday) and Lore was ready to craft by this afternoon. I planned out and made a bunch of Maryland-themed printables to do while here and she knew they were just ready to be printed. We headed out to the porch to do this one… She was […]

{ Lorelai’s Craft List }

Lorelai and her list

I know I’ve mentioned this a zillion times now, but since this is pretty much a ‘recap’ post, let me recap. Last week, Lorelai pulled out her animal encyclopedia and went through and found a bunch of animals that she wanted to crafts of. Since then, I’ve been making printables like crazy in order to […]

{ Printable Fox Craft }

Fox Craft

Every time I see a fox, I immediately think of the first time I saw one. I was riding behind one of my uncles on his dirtbike as a child (I couldn’t have been more than 5 or 6) and we saw a reddish-orange fox streak across the field. Not sure why that memory stuck […]

{ Printable Hippo Craft }

Hippo Craft

Who doesn’t love a cute hippo? Nevermind that they actually kill more people each year than sharks. They’re still pretty cute, especially purple ones! We’re nearing the end of Lorelai’s list (from her animal encyclopedia) of crafts now… thank goodness! Again, this one is 2 pages. I couldn’t fit the big ol’ hippo + 4 […]

{ Printable Grasshopper Craft }


This is another of Lore’s list animals… or in this case, insect. I wasn’t able to squeeze his long body, wing, head, and 6 legs into one sheet so this is a two-page printable. It can all be printed from the same PDF file though! Printable Instructions | Terms of Use | Facebook Page   […]

{ Printable Gorilla Craft }

Gorilla Craft

This craft takes me back to my days spent playing Donkey Kong with my brothers and cousins. I had originally intended for both of his arms to be pointing down, but I must have inverted one of them while trying to get them to fit into a single printable… so now he has one arm […]

{ Printable Bald Eagle Craft }

Bald Eagle Craft

Last night I finally finished making the printables for all of the crafts on Lore’s list. I printed them all out and stuck them on the kitchen counter so we could get started on them. We normally only do one craft a day. Maybe two if we have time. Today, we did 6… and it […]

{ Printable Duck Craft }

Duck Craft

It has been a raining and storming on and off for the past few days here. For some reason, this duck seemed to fit perfectly with the weather. I doodled on the ‘example’ of this little guy on the printable — made him hold an umbrella, and Lore got a big kick out of it. […]
