Heart Penguin Craft

I got this idea from here. I wanted something simple and cute to do with my kids for Valentine's Day and this seemed perfect.

What you'll need:
  • Construction paper (black, white and orange)
  • Googly eyes
  • Crayons or markers (optional)
  • Glue
  • Scissors

We cut out an egg shape (somewhat!) out of the black construction paper. Then we cut out an heart shape from the white paper. Next, we glued three small hearts out of the orange paper - one nose, and two feet. Lastly, we glued on the googly eyes.




After we completed these, the kids begged me to let them put a mouth and hair on the penguins. Brianna said her penguin looked way too much like a boy! Of course I said yes. I got out yarn and some sparkly jewels. Here are their final creations:





Brianna (hers is on the left in this picture, on the right in the top picture) was determined that hers was going to have a mouth (see the yarn smile?) and teeth to chomp with (three pieces of orange construction paper). I thought that was pretty cute. Hunter just kind of followed in Brianna's footsteps!

This was a cute, simple craft. We've been snowed in here for a few days so it was something to break the monotony. A great craft for them, ages 3 and 4, so if your children are between 2 and 5 I would say they'd like this creation. Happy crafting!

Frugal Craft: Homemade Noisemakers

Hey, guess what? My husband's Mountain Dew addiction finally came in handy! He's very happy to hear that.

I found this activity in an old Highlights magazine. I mean, the magazine is from 1991, y'all. But I knew my kids would love this activity, and love it they did!

Wash and dry aluminum soft drink cans. Place 15-20 dried beans in each can, and cover the opening with tape.

Cover the cans completely with aluminum foil. Decorate with paper cutouts. Shake the cans to make noise.







We loved this! It's easy for the kids to do by themselves and noisy, so what could be better?! My hubby did point out that the aluminum foil could cut someone if there is a sharp edge. They didn't care about that kind of stuff in 1991. Kids were hardcore back then. Anyway, we loved doing this together and I wouldn't be surprised if we do it again in the future!

CVS Huggies Deal

We got a CVS a couple of months ago and today I went in there for the second time. The first time was just to get sunscreen and for some reason I got 2 ECB (Extra Care Bucks is their rewards program) so I figured I would try shopping there again to get $2 off my next purchase.

When I saw this Huggies deal I jumped at it. This might be something you want to do for a baby shower if you don't have kids!

This deal is good through Saturday, September 14.

Huggies slip-on diapers, jumbo pack - On sale for $9.49
Use a $1.50 coupon from here, or share on social media to get the coupon bumped up to $2.50.
Use a $3.00 coupon from the CVS website

Huggies baby wipes - On sale for $2.99
Use a $0.50 coupon from the 8-18 SS.

I also used my $2.00 ECB and paid $5.32. Not bad for a jumbo pack of diapers and a package of baby wipes. I would definitely pick these up for a baby shower if I didn't need them!
