Papier-Mâché Pumpkins -- fun Halloween decoration
It's October, which means Halloween excitement is happening our house. It also means we have some fun Halloween crafts up our sleeve for the next few weeks. But I was reminded of our papier-mâché pumpkin we made last year! Actually, we made a whole box of fruit and vegetables, but really,  just making pumpkins would be ...

Apple Print Pumpkins - Fast and Fun DIY Halloween Decorations
We just returned from a holiday in California and from the minute we arrived we were struck by how many of the houses already had their Halloween decorations up. The kids couldn't get enough of all the ghosts and monsters hanging from people's porches and the front yards decked out like crime scenes. It certainly ...

New video: How to make a superhero costume (a quick and easy DIY!)
On our road trip up the coast of California last month, we stopped for a few days in sunny San Luis Obispo to visit my friend Mo from Pipsticks who recently moved from London with her husband and their four kids. It was so fun to get all our kids together and to explore this charming little ...

Last Minute Halloween Costumes
This year for Halloween Henrik is going as a bat and Maja will be Red Riding Hood.  I like to keep Halloween costumes simple, something we have at home or they can wear over and over again as dress up. Henrik has been talking about being a bat for Halloween for a long time now ...

Autumn craft -- A not-so-scary spiderweb
I grew up in the countryside and have seen enough big hairy spiders in my bedroom to infect me with a mild form of arachnophobia. But this spiderweb my daughter made is allowed to hang in my house... Just use a chestnut for the centerpiece, pierce 5 holes (a metal skewer works), insert wooden skewers ...

Personalized Halloween party bags
I can't believe we're well into October already! And Halloween is around the corner... Here in the UK, Halloween gets nowhere near the amount of attention as it does in America, and a 'Halloween party' is a bit of a novelty... but the American in me loves the idea (the costumes, the candy, the pumpkins!). ...

Jack-o-lantern clementines
Halloween is definitely not an Italian tradition, but in recent years around this time of the year we do see more pumpkins and orange stuff in the grocery stores. Funnily enough the only costumes accepted are spooky ones, which I'm not too sure are very appropriate for children. Nonetheless it's another occasion to have some ...

Last-minute DIY Halloween costumes
Thankfully my boys let me off the hook this year. The older one has decided he wants to be a ghost for Halloween (how easy is that?!) and the other one is happy to use his brother's costume from last year. We're set. But... I did have a temporary freak-out last week when I realized ...

Today is the International Day of Girls! And we are celebrating with a wonderful blog post discussing the confidence gap for young girls. Emilie writes: “One of the bigger shocks of my girls getting older is witnessing the self consciousness creeping in. I’m still getting used to the worries they have about how they are perceived by others and the inhibitions and loss of innocence and naivety.” Read more (tap on link) and let us know how you enhance your daughters, nieces, or girlfriends’ confidence! #internationaldayofgirlchild #babyccinokids #girls #teens #women#dayofthegirl
