Food Art. 

This is my very first crafty blog post with one of my littles! I am so excited to share the fun with you that we have played with over on Instagram here in more detail. 

(If you want to find me on IG I’m @lightgreenmothering

  Today we are playing with kitchen scraps! 

What you need:

  • Food scraps (we used celery and potatoes)
  • Paint
  • Paint brush or roller
  • Paper 
  • Knife or cookie cutters
  • Painters Tape (optional)

   I chose to tape the paper (painters tape) to my table to secure it. 

Next, I pre-made some designs in halved potatoes with cookie cutters and then trimmed the edges with a knife. My celery was literally just the cutting from the bottom of my stalk. You could use broccoli, carrots, apples..you get the picture. 

Next, I set out paint, water, brushes and a towel for brush clean up. 

Time for fun!


The celery makes lovely flowers!


We also were practicing our peace sign and heart making skills while doing this “mural”.  Because mamas, this kid loves it when I join in. Mom bonus, she thinks I’m awesome when I do. 

Now, considering  my daughter tags EVERYTHING with an H. I would say this is her signature now.


So easy peasy right?

 Now go have some fun!

DIY No Sew Cloth Baby Wipes.

At last! I am finishing my DIY series on homemade cloth baby wipes. Today I will share with you the super easy no sew way to make your own simple cloth baby wipes. Seriously, this is so easy! I started making these after researching what was in my daughters conventional disposable wipes. You can read more about that here. You can make these for next to nothing. I used old receiving blankets we were no longer using and also a few I found while thrifting (old ones are expecially good because they are super soft).

DIY All Natural Baby Wipe Solution

As I shared in my post “What is in your baby wipes?” many of the baby wipes on the market are filled with unnecessary ingredients  I would rather not expose my child to if at all possible. Even if ingredients don’t make you want to choose an alternative, the waste you are creating from them or even the cost may make you think twice. So I would love to share with you a very cost effective natural solution that has worked well for our little family. **This is the recipe for solution only. I typically use flannel homemade wipes that I can easily wash with cloth diapers. I will share a super easy DIY with you for that very soon!
