Cute Folding Origami Greeting Cards for Valentine's Day and Mother's Day

I saw this gorgeous reel by Clymdraws that showed a lovely folded paper greeting and was so inspired to try making one myself. This is a lovely origami craft because the folding pattern is so simple and you can use this design to make cards for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day.... or any holiday, really. Directions are below. Enjoy!

Creating Vision Boards with Kids

Have you heard of vision boards? They're collages that you make using words and pictures to help you envision what you'd like to happen in your life. Often time we'll talk to our kids about new year's resolutions, but honestly, we all forget what our resolutions are by February. 

Two mom friends told me about making vision boards this year and I thought it would be a fun activity for our family to try out. The nicest part about this is that it involves cutting and gluing (which everyone seems to enjoy), and you get to chat with the kids about the fun pictures and words that you cut out. An added bonus? You end up with a lovely visual reminder to hang up. Ours are currently sitting in our crafting room. We'll see if they help us out this year!
