We've got an extra-special (and healthy!) holiday lunch idea today. Use it as part of your advent calendar or just surprise the kids with it one day this month.

It's very simple to throw together - the snap pea trees are my favorite part!

I've go another easy open-ended winter craft today. (Maybe next year I should do a facebook activity advent every day in December?)

How about an easy kid craft to make cute holiday decor for your house today?

This one looks straightforward and engrossing for the kids plus it would look sweet hung in the window!

I'm loving the look of these cute paper Christmas trees! I'm envisioning a whole cluster of them on my entry way table in different sizes but there's an image of the trees hanging mobile-style on the site of the tutorial that's pretty cool too. 

Wanna make some with me? 

Grab some green and/or white origami paper, scissors, and a few helpful kiddos and check out the full tutorial here:

How cool is this? Absolutely love this Kids yoga poses poster both for the sweet illustrations and the playtime uses! Yoga's great for active kids (or keeping kids active) - especially during the winter months.

One of the best Christmas presents we ever gave our son was a photo ABC book I made with photos of him and all his favorite things and places - he still treasures it 3 years later.

Check out the full DIY at the link.
