Here at The Disorganized Parent, EASY is the key for success! 2016’s Christmas Round Ups were such a big hit, we decided to do a few Valentine’s Day posts as well! After scouring Pinterest for reasonable crafts for the busy mom, we came up with an amazing list that even the worst DIY-er can do! Check out these fail proof, Easy Valentine’s Day Crafts to celebrate the holiday of love!
Ever just feel super grumpy and irritable for no apparent reason? What’s even worse is when your toddler is in one of those moods. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could just hit a re-set button when our toddlers are having one of those cranky toddler days we all know and
Today, my three year old sat down and ordered waffles for breakfast, as if it were a diner. When I didn’t deliver, we hit melt down status very quickly. Then, the dress I picked out wasn’t “princess-y” enough – that triggered melt down number two. After that, she accidentally caught site of our candy stash – let’s just say melt down number 3 was a doozy!
8:15 AM rolled around and I was already calling my husband ready to throw in the towel. Thankfully he talked me off the ledge and reminded me that we came up with a “re-start” list [Read more…]

Does it make me old that I am officially more excited for a craft subscription box than I am for my beauty subscription box?!
With the holidays coming up, I have repeatedly been asked for gift ideas for little ones. The STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) box from Green Craft Kids is the perfect mix of fun and education, as well as environmental responsibility. It provides fun for kids ages 3-10 and gets you bonus points with parents!
Let the testing begin!
This week has been the longest on record. These last 7 days were definitely longer than previous weeks – did you feel it?! No?! Just me?! Ok, it might have been because I had two sick kids at home and wasn’t feeling well myself. The week started off with fevers and quickly progressed into hand, foot and mouth aka cocksackie aka the devil’s virus. Oops that last one isn’t real. Anyway – with nobody going to school or babysitters and staying at our house because it wouldn’t be socially responsible to take my kids to a store, it was one truly long week. I had to get creative in our activities just so that we could make it through without wanting to kill one another. We did one MAJOR activity each day that took a lot of time, made a mess and was very fun. Check out this list below of different activities that are great for when you’re stick inside with your little ones: [Read more…]
4 cups flour
1/2 cup baby oil
THAT’S IT! Whenever I look at pinterest I start to feel a little overwhelmed at the types of crafts people are doing for their kids – it always seems like more work than what I have time for! I honestly don’t know how people do it all but I give them lots of credit. Recently we had a sick week where we started to get a little bonkers (can read more about that here) so I had to reach into my brain and pull out some of my old Child Life skills (read here about what a Child Life Specialist is). I decided to do a little “Moon Sand” which is a fancy of way of saying flour and baby oil. All you do is mix the oil with the flour and let your toddler explore! If you don’t prefer baby oil you can use any type of edible oil (like coconut) but please note that the baby oil works the best. Allowing your toddler to help get the mixture together is a simple fun way to have a secondary element of play to this activity. [Read more…]
