  • Easter Crafts for Kids

    It's Easter time! We've rounded up some Easter crafts for kids, including two fun and incredibly simple ways to decorate eggs.

    Did you know you can decorate eggs with temporary tattoos? Just follow the directions for regular use, but apply it to your egg, not your hand! You can create eggs that celebrate your favorite superhero or cartoon character.

    Another one we love is the ombre egg. We've seen lots of ways to create these striped, decorative eggs, but most involve lots of dipping. This method is brilliantly easy, because it involves adding water instead of taking the egg out repeatedly.

    Once the eggs are all decorated, it's time to set up an Easter egg hunt. This twist on the traditional is one of our favorites from our Easter-themed Pinterest page. How about a nighttime egg hunt? All you need is a few thin plastic eggs and some battery-operated mini candles. Imagine the glowing thrill of finding a sea of glowing eggs in the backyard!

    And we have a wonderful assortment of Easter art, spring art, and bunny art. Take a look at a few ways we have to keep the bright feelings of Easter alive year-round!

    Happy Easter, everyone!

  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar is 47!

    The Very Hungry Caterpillar, the beloved book by Eric Carle, was published in 1969. That means it turns 47 years old in 2016! It was published on June 3, but The Very Hungry Caterpillar Day is celebrated every year on the first day of spring, March 20. This year's celebration is extra-special!

    Here are some very interesting facts about The Very Hungry Caterpillar:

    1. The story was originally going to be about a worm; a bookworm, to be exact!
    2. On the book's 40th anniversary, Google created a Google Doodle in its honor.
    3. The book has been translated into 62 languages, including some you might never have heard of, like Frysian, Catalan, and Urdu.
    4. One copy of the book is sold somewhere in the world every minute.
    5. More than 30 million copies have been sold.

    And here at Oopsy Daisy, our favorite fact about The Very Hungry Caterpillar is that you can have your very own caterpillar art to hang on your wall. We have The Very Hungry Caterpillar growth charts, placemats, night lights, and personalized canvas prints.

    You can even start your own collection of Eric Carle art. Come see what we have, from a mermaid to a dinosaur to a whole entire zoo.

     

     

  • St. Patrick's Day (& Pi Day)!

    This week has two terrific holidays to celebrate: Pi Day and St. Patrick's Day!

    What's Pi Day? Pi is a math value that has to do with the size of a circle. It's a very, very long number (some say it's endless!), but the first three digits of it are 3.14. March is the third month, and so Pi Day is a fun day celebrated on March 14. Can you guess how Pi Day is celebrated? You got it, by eating pie! Which automatically makes it one of our favorite holidays. What's your favorite kind of pie?

    Pi Day may be new to you, but you've probably heard of St. Patrick's Day. March 17th is the Fest Day for St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of Ireland. What started as a religious holiday has changed quite a bit over the years, especially in the USA, and become a big celebration of all things Irish. Many communities hold a St. Patrick's Day parade, and lots of people, whether they're Irish or not, wear green and have parties and special meals. If you want to join in, just wear a green shirt and a big wide smile--and maybe try some Irish soda bread. It's delicious!

    Here's a St. Patrick's Day craft for you to try--one that would look perfect at school or at a St. Patrick's Day parade: All you need is scissors and a paper plate (and, if your paper plate is white, maybe a Magic Marker or green crayon!) Photos are below to help you out.

    Fold the plate in half.

    Cut a hole for the head, leaving a "stem" of about three or four inches wide that is still attached to the plate.

    With the plate still folded, draw a shamrock. Remember, you're drawing only two leaves, because it's folded!

    Cut out the shamrock.

    Unfold and stand up the shamrock. That's it! Color if green if you like.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    And take a look at some of our St. Patrick's Day themed (and green!) art.

  • In Like a Lion, Out Like a Lamb

    Have you heard the expression that March goes in like a lion, out like a lamb?

    Have you ever thought about what that means?

    Just look out the window and you might get an idea. The month of March is often a transition month, weather-wise. The beginning of the month is the tail-end of winter. It can be cold, snowy, and stormy--tough, like a lion. The end of the month is the beginning of spring. It can be sunny, warm, and peeking with flowers--gentle, like a lamb.

    Can you think of other pairs that might describe the month of March?

    Here are a few we came up with:

    March comes in like oatmeal and goes out like souffle.

    March comes in like gray and goes out like yellow.

    March comes in like a dump truck and goes out like a bicycle.

    Come take a look at our lion art and lamb art. We have lots and lots of other animals as well, so you can find your favorite or start a collection. You can even search for your favorite animal in the search box and see the whole menagerie of choices.

    Happy March!
