    Pinterest provides a ton of creative ideas to dye Easter eggs as an alternative to the traditional dye kit we can find in stores. When I saw the option to dye Easter eggs with shaving cream pop up again and again, I decided to give it a try! 

    I loved this idea because all you need to complete the craft is shaving cream, eggs, and food coloring -- things I already had on hand. After spraying shaving cream into a shallow glass dish, we added drops of food coloring, swirled it around and rolled our eggs through.

    After letting the eggs dry a bit with the colorful shaving cream in place, we wiped them off and were eager to discover whether or not the color actually stuck!

    When it comes to Pringles Potato Chips, there is a popular saying that even those with only a passing familiarity of the brand know. You know it, say it with me: Once you pop, the fun don't stop. Those infamous, stackable chips live up to their hype. Tasty and uniquely packaged, they are hard to forget and even harder to put to one side when snack time ends.

    Their cyclindrical canisters are part of what makes them just so memorable. Now you can keep your Pringles containers around without looking like a hoarder! Seriously, with a little bit of cleanup, some inspiration, and imagination, Pringles cannisters are among the easiest household 'trash' that can be reused as treasure.

    If there's one thing I'm enjoying this winter, it's a cup of coffee to warm up with every day. It's not uncommon to find me cuddled up with a mug in the morning, which is why I was thrilled when I saw how easy it is to design my own mug using Sharpies! There are thousands of pins on Pinterest linking to tutorials with pictures of personalized mugs and from the moment I saw one, I knew I had to try it.

    I picked up mugs at the dollar store for myself and each of my kids and because I didn't trust the Sharpie mug tutorials completely, I picked up porcelain markers as well as regular Sharpies.

    This turned out to be the perfect winter break craft for my kids. They used their personalized mugs for hot chocolate all week long!
