Canopy Bed

We’ve seen a lot of canopy beds this fall, you can see them everywhere this year. What’s great about the canopy bed, is that they are very on trend this fall because this type of bed really acts as a statement piece. It also adds dimension to the room and allows you to make your room stand out.

Floral Wallpaper

Now this is a trend we can get behind. Floral wallpaper has been so popular this fall, adding another element of contrast to the room of your choosing. The vintage look is strong when it comes to floral wallpaper, you can get in in peel and stick if you’re unsure, for a less permanent commitment and easy application.

Time To Wash The Car

There are a lot of creative activities to do at home. And washing the car doesn’t need a lot of instruction. We’re here to encourage you to get outside on a nice day and enjoy the fresh air.

And time for a family water fight. Once you get inside and dried off get to the kitchen because it’s time to bake.

Time To Bake

Baking can be a very wonderful learning experience. Getting your kids measuring and learning how to pour ingredients into a bowl. You’re helping with hand-eye coordination and learning how to get the right measurements.

let’s get the kids learning how to cut cookies with cookie cutters. Practicing their reading skills with you by reading the recipes and then seeing their hard work done and they get to eat it. It can be a fun activity for the whole family and even just for yourself. There are other activities that are a bit more quiet to consider as well. Let’s sit down with a puzzle and a cup of tea.
