Thanks to Pinterest, I’ve discovered that I love, love, love the look of photo collages made with canvases.  A quick search on Pinterest will show you tons of rooms that have been decorated with them and they just look so sharp!  And wouldn’t you know, when our first kiddo was born, we were presented with lots of photos that we wanted to showcase!

Have you been to the Tinker Lab at Omaha Children’s Museum? It’s had a makeover in the last year and is a fantastic place to teach kids to use basic tools with supervision.

The Tinker Lab has many materials on hand, like wood, cardboard, straws, tape, paperclips, clothespins, sewing machine and much more for kids to create their masterpieces. My kids love to nail or screw wood together to make boxes or even a mini catapult.

Not sure what to make at the Tinker Lab? I’m going to share how to make a simple DIY rubber band shooter and target board. These are so easy to make and my kids love shooting them. Read More…
