Weekly Instagram hashtag #CU_art

hello my friends, I’m excited to announce that this week’s prompt is #CU_art. our hope with this prompt is to see you go out with your little ones and view some art (maybe there’s a local museum or gallery you haven’t brought them to) or stay home and make some art of your own! art is one of my favorite unplugged activities and I look forward to it motivating your week. please tag the new art images you post this week to#CU_art and I will feature both from our main tag and this one. this beautiful image belongs to @lucadele | featured by @carolyn_mara #childhoodunplugged

Valentine’s Day craft

We are excited to share with you some fun crafts over the next few months from some wonderful moms that are getting unplugged with their kiddos.  Traci Ling has shared with us a simple mailbox to make with your little ones to hold the valentines they received at school!


“We made special boxes to hold all of the Valentines they receive at their party!  We figured we would just cover a shoe box with wrapping paper and stickers, but we found these really cute stick-on decorations {hearts and unicorn} and we made even cooler boxes! (stickers came from Target)  We wrapped the boxes with paper and cut a hole in the top, then started decorating!  The legs of the unicorn are little white cylinders but you could use paper towel or toilet paper rolls cut to size and colored.  It was so much fun and a simple activity!  I’m not a crafty mommy but I am happy to buy a few little things that help my kids get creative.”
