End year gift for teachers

I can’t believe it is June !!! It feels like we are in the rocket and flew around the earth in 1 second 😂. When my son started the school I made up a plan, that we gona do handmade gift to his teachers. I was searching for some ideas about what teachers need. I mean really need and use what we give, not just a gift that stays on the corner. So, I come up with the idea of making crayon bottle that teachers can use to keep their pen. And gift card from amazon. During my research I read that most states teachers are underpaid. They also use their own money  to  buy school supplies sometimes. That’s why I thought crayons will be great gift, so teachers can use it later on. So, I didn’t glue it to the jar but used a rubber band in order to keep them together .

Here are the things you need to make your crayon pen holder 

  • Empty baby fruit purée  jar
  • Box of crayons 
  • 1 rubber band
  • Piece of yarn
  • 2 sticks/ pencil
  • Ribbons for decoration 
  • Small size cloth pin
  1. Clean the jar
  2. Put the rubber band around the jar
  3. Ask your child to help insert the crayons ( it will be fun)
  4. Put the popsicle sticks on each side 
  5. Insert the cloth pin through the yarn. It will help the pin hang straight
  6. Tie ribbon on top of rubber band for decoration 

Another great gift idea  to let your child write a thank you letter to their teachers. Believe me  it is precious for teachers knowing how their students and parent appreciate their hard work. I got the idea and free print from this blog Thesuburbanmom.com

Mother’s Day DIY

It is Mother’s Day yeayyy. Since I became a mother I haven’t had  a time to celebrate Mother’s Day as I wanted . Because, every year it was finals week ugh. I was too busy with my study and didn’t even feel like celebrating anything. But, this year I eagerly waited for it .

The first thing I did was I went to art class with my little boy.  There we paint the flower pot. It was fun and relaxing.

Then my big boy Dior surprised me with his cute flower craft. He even wrote “Happy Mother’s Day ” himself.  It was the best present ever I got. I was so happy and even cried a bit. It was a happy cry lol. I am really proud of him.

The day before Mother’s Day I decided to make a craft with kids for myself. I was checking the Facebook and Pinterest . And I love the idea of making a jewelry keeper from oven baked clay. I wanted to put the link but couldn’t find the original person who made it first. So if you want to watch other options just type oven baked clay DIY on Pinterest . You will find several great ones.

Ours you can watch here


The least but not the last, present from hubby was nice family lunch all together, withought using a phone 😂

How was your Mother’s Day ?

Earth day craft

Soon it is Earth day . So today we decided to do some crafts.  

First I was thinking just simply plant the seeds outside but decided to do some fun activity with Dior

Dior ate his applesauce and Yusuf also finished his baby food . So I came up the idea of making a turtle and bumble bee planters out of it. It came up pretty good and Dior loved it. 

At the same time I was able to explain to Dior the importance of recycling plastics/glasses, the benifits  of planting seeds to the nature and the stages of the growth. Over all it kept  us busy almost 3 hours. It is enough time to make your little buzzs busy.
