Crafting with crazy was born from my love of crafting and my children, but my main motivator was my son, Brighton. Brighton had a physical development delay and has a speech delay. I wanted to find fun and creative ways to apply the advice we received from his therapists so I started crafting. Like crazy. My husband started calling my crafting sessions, “crafting with crazy” and now here we are.

Happy New Year! Set up a fun sensory bin for 🐝 to play with this NYE. I used black beans and gold chickpeas to form the 2021. The pom pom push portion is always a hit. I also incorporated my alphabet discs for letter recognition. The rest were disco ball ornaments, plastic coins, and mini presents to be used for some loose parts play. Threw in a pair of tongs and a scoop to get some motor skills practice in. Voila! . . . . . #HappyNewYear #NewYearSensoryBin#CraftingIsMyTherapy #CraftyMom #SensoryBin #SensoryPlay #LoosePartsPlay #InvitationToPlay #LetThemBeLittle #LearningThroughPlay #TheArtOfPlay #NJMom #NJMomBlogger #NewYear2021 #CraftersOfInstagram #CraftingMom #MotherhoodInspired #OKMama #MomOf2 #BoyGirlMom #NewYorkMom #nymom #LatinaMom #flisattableplay . . . . .

Wrapping up the emotional roller coaster that has been 2020. This cute time capsule idea was inspired by @making.marinos . What’s your most memorable moment of 2020? I made mine using: 2 10 x 12 pieces of cardboard Varying yarns Disco ball ornament Acrylic paint Glue Glitter Printables that I created but there are plenty out there you can find for free as well I used the paint pour technique for the cover and sprinkled chunky glitter onto the wet paint Once that dried, I brushed on glue and sprinkled fine glitter The numbers were cut on my Cricut maker . . . . . #DIYCrafts #TimeCapsule #cardboard2020mvp #KidsCrafts #KidsDIYIdeas #CraftersOfInstagram #CraftingMom #cricutmade #MotherhoodInspired #Goodbye2020 #LetThemBeLittle #TheYearWeStayedHome #NewYear #KidsActivities #InspiredMom #njmom . . . . .

Nutcracker on ice! We used the @themagicplaybook Nutcracker printable for this perfect pretend play activity. It was also a great opportunity to teach 🐝 about freezing and melting. Check out my stories to see 🐝 in action. To recreate your own ice skating rink: ❄️freeze some water in a tray or bin ❄️freeze some water & popsicle sticks in a small cup or popsicle mold ❄️Optional: add fake snow or snowflake confetti to the bin & cups prior to freezing ❄️print and cut out characters of your choice ❄️once the water freezes, glue characters to the popsicle stick . . . . . #invitationtoplay #imaginativeplay #sensoryplay #pretendplay #preschoolactivities #languagedevelopment #playidlearning #playbasedlearning #learningthroughplay #njblogger #njmom #njmoms #momswhocraft #motherhoodiscolorful #mamaoftwo #thisismotherhood #printables #motherhoodmoments #motherhoodinspired #motherhoodtogether #ohheymama #unitedmotherhood #homeschool . . . . .

I was fortunate enough to grow up in the most ethnically diverse area in the world, Queens, NY. There I was exposed to people of many beautiful cultures and because of that I understand the value of diversity. It is something that is important to me to pass on to my children. In the words of the great, Martin Luther King, “ We have before us the glorious opportunity to inject a new dimension of Love into the veins of our civilization.” The work starts at home, it’s our responsibility to teach our children, but let’s not forget to continue to learn and grow ourselves. How are you teaching your children about diversity and equality? “You Matter” by black author, Christian Robinson Multicultural Crayons are from 10yo black girl owned, @morethanpeachproject The printable is from the Allies to Be workbook by WOC owned, @wanderandwonder.studio . . . . . #dobetter #antiracist #racistsnotwelcome #biracialfamily #latinamom #raisethemright #antiracistkids #raisingantiracistkids #equalityforall #diversityisbeautiful #poc #latinamoms #futuregeneration . . . . .

Roses are red, violets are blue, if you have leftover cardboard, we know just what you can do! ❤️ Add some fun to your Valentine’s Day festivities with a piñata! I created this one using the below instructions. ❤️Create a template on your computer or hand draw your design directly onto the cardboard ❤️Cut out your design and trace it onto another piece of cardboard and cut that out ❤️Cut 5” wide strips to make the sides ❤️Hot glue edges onto one of your cut out designs and start working your way around. ❤️Add a couple of punch holes to the top center so you can add the yarn to hang the piñata ❤️Don’t forget to create a flap so you can fill it ❤️Once you’ve worked your way around you can hot glue the other side of your design ❤️Fringe some tissue paper or streamers and hot glue starting from the bottom and working your way up Don’t be afraid to have fun with shapes! The corrugated cardboard is perfect for rounded edges as it easily folds creating a score. Swipe for a few process snapshots. Some of my crafty mamas and I have gotten together to share some fun Valentines-themed crafts that you can create with cardboard you may have laying around, so be sure to check out their fun ideas too! @littleloveezra @amandaescoe @ashleymurphyfamily @_bayleymiller @craftingwithcrazy @girlgangandco @whimsicallywonderful @kellcaruso . . . . . #craftymom #craftersofinstagram #craftingmom #diymom #cardboardcrafts #cardboard #valentinescrafts #valentinesdecor #motherhoodinspired #partydecor #partyinspiration #partyideas #partydecorations #craftingismytherapy #piñata #makingmemories #happymom #mommoments #ohheymama #creativemom #diyvalentines #craftylife #craftideas #handmade #bohodesign #recycledcrafts #recycledart . . . .

Winter is in full swing, and we are here to help you come up with some fun, wintery activities to do with your kids! Pretend play meets sensory play with this Cocoa Cloud Dough set up. This invitation to play incited so much language out of 🐝, I couldn’t have been prouder. The sensory portion was great for his fine motor, creative, and observation skills. The cash register was perfect for turn taking and back and forth dialogue which is important for building social and emotional skills. This is definitely one of my favorite set ups so far. See below for the easy cloud dough recipe. Cocoa Cloud dough ☁️ 1 cup cocoa powder ☁️ 3 cups flour ☁️1/2 cup & 1 tbsp vegetable oil 1. Mix dry ingredients 2. Slowly drizzle oil while stirring ingredients 3. Mix well The cloud dough should keep for approximately 60 days if stored in a container in a cool and dry environment. Check out what some of my other mama friends did to bring some wintery fun into their homes! @ashleymurphyfamily @craftingwithcrazy @growinghaines @adaywith_elsieandtheo @kellcaruso @whimsicallywonderful @themedoutmommy . . . . . #SensoryPlay #InvitationToPlay #PretendPlay #ImaginativePlay #MotorSkills #LanguageDevelopment #SpeechDelay #MomsOfInstagram #MotherhoodInspired #CreativeMom #CraftyMom #WoodenToys #woodtoys #MontessoriMom #MontessoriAtHome #njmom #njmoms #nymom #MontessoriActivities #MontessoriToddler #TheEveryMom #MotherhoodCaptured #MotherhoodInspired #ohheymama #motherhoodlens #flisattable . . . . .

Working on name recognition with 🐝 using the @themagicplaybook matching mittens printable. I added the letters so he could practice spelling his name and the clothespins to work on his fine motor skills. Name recognition activities are great for: Building confidence Sight reading Building an interest in writing their name Letter recognition Spelling Learning about letters (B is for Brighton, r is for red...) Do you have any favorite name recognition activities? . . . . . #learningthroughplay #preschool #homeschool #winteractivities #creativemama #momoftwo #earlychildhoodeducation #namerecognition #finemotorskills #homeschool #playathome #toddlerplayactivities #njmom #njblogger #thisismotherhood #motherhoodinspired #njfamily #momsofinstagram #motherhoodjourney #letterrecognition #toddleractivities #thisismotherhood #momblogger #montessori . . . . .
