Bubble Relay Race

We hosted a “Welcome Summer”party a few weeks ago as part of a Quaker Chewy campaign. I already shared a post about the Color Fight and today I’m sharing photos from our bubble relay race. We split all the kids into teams and had them race across the grass doing the crab walk. The twist is I set up 4 bubble machines to create a giant tunnel of bubbles to race through. After the races in turned into the kids just chasing bubbles around (the little ones got a little distracted-ha!) Don’t miss my Sister Design Mom’s post & My Sister in Law Say Yes’ post too!

Oh Baby Tablecloth DIY

by Chiara Alberetti Milott

Have a baby shower coming up?  I conquered my fear of cutting out felt letters with the simple trick of printing out the letters, then cutting the paper and cloth together. This project took several nights worth of sewing, but in the end, looks so pretty – plus can be passed on to the next sister, cousin, or friend’s baby shower! Of course, if a baby boy is on the way, switch to blues and greens, or if you’re waiting with bated breath to find out the sex of the baby – yellows will do the trick!
