Want my fab tip for hats, gloves & scarfs that will make your morning a breeze?

Then pick up a fabric shoe organizer at Bed Bath & Beyond!

Mornings can be crazy in our home heading out for school, as is in many households.

Whether your live in an apartment or home, getting winter accessories can be a challenge until now!

Simply hang this organizer behind the door of your choice, roll scarves, fold gloves then place in hats making sets! ~Best tip ever!

I did this for our family and it makes getting ready one step easier!

An important factor is that children can be more independent getting ready in the morning minus the battle!

Getting the kids involved as early as age two, sorting and matching which is a great task to work on.

Just leave coats, shoes & backpacks near the door to make your morning routine run more smoothly. ~Enjoy!

Want to make keepsake ornaments with the kiddies this holiday season?

Then head to Michael’s or your local craft store for plastic Christmas balls, & a Sharpie paint marker!

Nothing is more memorable each year to go down memory lane when decorating our tree.

This year we made family Christmas ornaments with the kids, dated & signed our names with our ages & the year.

We filled ours with festive feathers, but they can be filled with bells, glitter, Legos, beads, stars & the list is endless!

This craft is fun for parties, holiday gatherings, and one in which your family will treasure!

Looking for a fab Christmas tree this holiday?

image

Then cut one down a tree yourself or purchase a potted tree!

Today we took our children to a Christmas tree farm which was a wonderful way to kick off the holiday spirit!

From planning on what type of tree to working together as a team, it was a day to treasure!

Fresh cut trees last longer then precut trees, and are less expensive then some lot trees.

Another option is to purchase a potted tree which you could plant in your yard or local park.

Making memories is priceless, and just a few MomWhoKnows.Com tips… Bring a battery operated saw! Hand saws are more work and save your arms for decorating! Also a blanket for your roof, & a plastic bag to wrap the base to prevent sap sticking to your car!

Want to do something memorable this Thanksgiving with all of your family or guests?

Then make a, Thankful Tree or Thankful Chandelier!

Thanksgiving is a memorable holiday, one of which has many, “teachable” moments for your children.

We all have many things to be thankful for, and what better way to show it!

Simply cut out a variety different shape leaves, and use a hole puncher or pencil to poke a small hole in each leaf.

Next use a pipe cleaner, ribbon, raffia or twine and tie a knot in the hole for it to hang.

Afterwards give everyone one or more leaves and a marker to write what he/she is thankful for. For the little ones, have them dictate their thoughts.

Next hang on a chandelier or take a few branches from outside for your family/guests to attached their leaves, & place in a vase.

What better way to share a special moment of greatness!

Take it from a Mom who is truly THANKFUL for all of my blessings!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Want a fun & memorable activity to keep the kids busy after dinner on Thanksgiving?

image

Then pick up a pre-made Gingerbread house, by Wilton, or a do-it-yourself Chanukah house by Manishewitz!

My sister in law each year sets up a fabulous table for the kids after dinner which they look forward to every year!

Decorating Gingerbread houses has become a tradition for the kids on Thanksgiving, and kicks off the holiday spirit!

Pre-made houses are easiest, found at local supermarkets, Target or Michael’s Craft Stores. Set up an area with a disposable table cloth, bowls of a variety of candies, icing, clear large basket bags (Michael’s Craft Store), ribbons to tie bags and a tag with every child’s name on it.

If you cant find a pre-made house, then assemble the houses the night before so they have enough time to dry, & won’t fall apart!

Keep the houses on display in your home and unwrap of Chanukah or Christmas for dessert! Enjoy!
