Welcome friend! I'm so glad you have joined me here at Dreaming of Homemaking. I like to think of this blog as my journal, full of ideas that have helped me turn my house into a warm, welcoming home. My hope is that you too find this little piece of the internet a place to gather ideas and find inspiration.
I probably added a little more than we normally do, just so the kids have some more fun things to do at home. I try to buy things that I know will have a spot, because as you know living in a small space we don’t have extra room.
As much as I love all the cute things to add in, I have to think about each piece. Crafts – gives them something to do and enjoy but I also like to think what will happen when done. Chalk, bubbles, squirt guns – hours of fun! For the toys – we have a spot in their room for each of the things that I got them.
All the stuff you see on the floor, is items I bought in multiples to separate and its an easy way to make things “fair” if you have kids that like to make sure, I feel every family has one of those. Now let me show you inside!

I added a few extra things to each of the kids lists, of things they love in case you needed ideas of books and other things to do!

Now that we have the kids done, we can’t forget about the parents… well really that is so easy to do! I normally just add in some necessities and a want, along with some chocolate. Confession – the Kinder Eggs did NOT come with two stuffed animals …. we are stuck in the house here going on a month and well it was me or the kinder eggs…. This cooler has been a want and will be perfect! I do have the new JoAnna Gaines Magnolia Table Cookbook coming for me.
The kids would be so sad if we forgot the pups, and really getting them some new treats and a toy is needed – or they will go eat ALL the hidden eggs chocolate and ALL! We love the Bark Box toys, and the Charlee Bear snacks they just love!
If you do an egg hunt DON’T forget to make sure you have eggs ( we have an endless supply) and buy some candy and fillers. I do have to say, its easier if you buy the candy you don’t love haha! I am safe with this lot – unless times get tough …. we will have to see!
I hope this gave you some ideas, keep following along I will be sharing what different traditions we have and some fun Easter crafts!
