Looking for fun things to make, see and do this weekend? Check out these fresh ideas from some of our favorite blogs and websites...
There are still a few weeks of summer left – what’s on your must-do list? The Salty Pineapple has a great idea for an oversized chart of all the activities your family plans to enjoy before the weather turns chilly. Feel like biking, camping, flying a kite or making homemade ice cream? Have the kids write it all down (use crayons and a roll of butcher paper, then hang it where the whole fam can see it), and check off each activity as you complete it. Conquering new goals together gives everyone a great sense of accomplishment.
You don’t need a special occasion to celebrate. Hank + Hunt shows how to turn cute, inexpensive plastic animal figurines into gorgeous gold-coated candles -- a great DIY for the weekend! The gilded lions, squirrels and dinosaurs are perfect to dress up an August birthday cake or just-because cupcakes.
Know an expectant mom? This week, CeciStyle has great ideas to prepare for a summer arrival, from a beach-themed shower and maxi dresses to last through September to nursery themes and must-have baby gear. We love designer Ceci Johnson's idea to fill baby's room with maps and globes so he can learn where his relatives live (and be well-prepared for future trips with Mom and Dad!). For a gorgeous gender-neutral nursery or toddler-to-tween room, follow Project Nursery's terrific tips on how to use elegant metallics and pops of color to perk up a classic beige-and-white kids' bedroom.
