Make a DIY bath bomb kit. A great gift for kids and adults alike! Before3pm.com

Today’s creative gift is a fun one for kids and adults.  There is a reason that making your own bath bombs is so popular!  It is fun to do.  In my opinion, it is actually more fun to make them than to use them!  I am guessing I am not the only one that loves feeling like a scientist!

This gift is perfect for anyone who has a pinterest board full of DIY ideas, but would appreciate a little “help” on actually doing them!  🙂 Read More →

Kids are always excited for their birthday! Help them plan it with this fun free printable! Before3pm.com

Birthdays are always fun – whether you are a kid or an adult!  I guess it is nice to have a day that is solely dedicated to celebrating your existence!

Like a lot of people, we have certain birthday traditions that our family looks forward to.  In our family, the birthday boy/girl gets to pick what they want for dinner and what they want as their dessert.

Also, I don’t know about your school, but at least in elementary school, bringing treats in to share with the classroom is a big deal, too! Read More →

DIY Birthday Plate. Before3pm.com

Let me tell you a story.

My middle son absolutely LOVES arts and crafts.   Now, painting is definitely not my favorite activity because it is always such a mess, but he begged me to let him paint, and I gave in.

I set him up with his paint set, newspaper on the table, a cup for rinsing out his paintbrush, etc..

When he finished his artwork, he put everything away, including the cup of dirty water in the sink.

While the dishes were piled in the sink, the paint residue from that water cup managed to get on some of my plates, and to this day, two of my plates STILL have paint spots on them!

Why do I tell you this story?  Because when I actually TRY to get paint to stay on plates, it has never worked!!!!

That is, until now! Read More →
