New House New projects

We just bought a new house about a month ago. After being in a rental and not being able to do much to the house I am excited to have my own home to let the creative in me come out again. I want to share my home projects as I create them. Follow along if you like, a kids corner reading corner is the first thing I would to share.

I made this with two $12 Walmart closet organizer shelves put on their side. This is easy way for the kids to be able to put books away themselves.

Crisp Onion Potatoes

you will need:
6-8 Potatoes (depending on size) I like reds
1/3 cup mayonnaise
Onion soup mix


Preheat oven to 425 degrees*

Cut up potatoes into small wedges toss into a bowl big enough to mix them in. Add the mayonnaise and a packet of onion soup mix. Stir to coat potatoes. Spray an 9*13 pan or spread out on cookie sheet bake for 35 minutes or until done to desired crispness.

* I made chicken to go with these that needed to be baked at 375 degrees so Cooked them about ten minutes longer at the lower temperature.

Kid Friendly Pumpkin Decorating

Painting pumpkins

Grandma grew mini pumpkins so we got bunch here is the kind we used these would be fun projects to do on any kind though

This is the paint I used I would recommend something more waterproof if going to keep pumpkin outside this however is easy to clean up!

Having fun painting

Finished pumpkins

*A tooth pick worked best for stacking the pumpkins together

Melting crayons to decorate

Both of my kids loved this project

As the crayons melt add more colors. We used an embossing heat tool to melt them. Maybe a hair dryer would work also? If you try it let me know!
