Directions: Print out the postcards on thick cardstock paper. To be considered a postcard by the USPS, the paper needs to be as thick or thicker than an index card. If you don’t have paper this thick, you could always bring some envelopes to mail the postcards off in. Cut out the postcards and hand them off to the kids. The kids can pick their favorite one and draw the surroundings of their vacation. Let them add a little heart felt note on the back and mail away to their friend, cousin, or grandparent! A perfect way to add a little personal touch to a vacation moment.

Spring and summer are the perfect seasons with those perfect colors. The time for outdoor parties is almost upon us. You’ll want to decorate your picnic tables with all sorts of fun colors. Neons are a very popular color choice and they work well with any project you do. These diy painted votives make an artsy statement when lined up and down picnic tables and are so-so-easy to create!

You will need: glass votives (these are from IKEA), acrylic paints in assorted neon colors, foam paint brushes

Directions: Starting with the white paint, paint a few streaks inside the glass. You can add as much or as little as you like. Once the first layer is dry, add the second color painting in the same manner. Wait for the second layer to dry, and paint on the third.

I don’t know if I’d take this cake camping–I like regular s’mores too much for that. But I would definitely serve it at a Camping Party. It’s a s’mores cake!

s'mores cake

You will need: a 5″ double layer cake already baked and cooled, white buttercream frosting, several unbroken graham crackers, chocolate frosting (the pre-made kind in a plastic container from the grocery store works great, we used Pillsbury Fudge Icing)

Place a small bit of frosting onto your plate or cake stand to keep the graham crackers in place. Add a square layer of graham crackers onto the frosting. Gently place the first layer of cake on top of the graham crackers. Frost a thick layer of frosting onto the first layer then add the second layer of cake on top of that one. Frost the outside of the cake. If you need some help, you can watch our video on how to frost a cake. If you are feeling brave, you can frost the cake first and then slide it onto the graham crackers. Your choice! Once the cake is frosted with the white buttercream frosting and added to the bottom layer of graham crackers, soften the chocolate icing in the microwave for a few seconds. Frost it carefully onto the cake to look like the melted chocolate in a s’more. Then add more graham crackers to the top.
