I will be adding helpful links and information for all parents to save money, get help with parenting, resources for gluten free lifestyles and anything else I can think of that would be useful. If you can think of a great resource for fellow parents, please contact me!

In my short time as a mother, I have discovered that some of the best ways to save money involve making things yourself. Plus, if you make things yourself, you can modify each to your liking and, hopefully, plan ahead for the craft or activity to age up with your child(ren).
Although I know we would all love to have tons of time to devote to each task, that is not a reality many of us face as parents. Most of the crafts and activities I share will be simple, easy and require no sewing (though there are exceptions). Make ’em quick but make ’em last!
Here is some info and instructions I’ve put together for boards and quiet book pages for your toddlers or young kids:
- Felt Quiet Books (with 4 free patterns!)
- Activity Board: Lift the Flap
- Activity Board: Basic Felt Board
Below are some helpful websites for people who need (or want) a gluten free diet:
- Celiac Disease Foundation
- Gluten Free Watchdog (independent product reporting)
- The Gluten Intolerance Group of North America
To declutter this article, I’ve created a separate page for the blogging resources I use. See the following links for helpful info on blogging:
