Oktoberfest is a German tradition. The more than two week long festival is filled with beer and brats. In the States we celebrate with tons of seasonal beers but with a few easy tweaks you can throw your very own Oktoberfest party for kids. The ladies of Friday Frivolity are all sharing their own Oktoberfest posts so be sure to check them out. Today I’ll give you an easy how to throw an Oktoberfest party for kids checklist.
You might consider kitchen room as the hub of your house, but it is not the “most excellent” place for doing school works. Household activities and their noise might distract your child who is trying to master math arithmetic, and moreover, the sound of the TV may provoke teenagers to dash off their grammar test preparation.
A separate room designated for study and homework gives a tranquil space where kids can accomplish their school activities without being interrupted. With elegant and stylish design choices, this room can become a pleasant retreat for growing scholars — and possibly their preferred place in the home. Continue reading
Cheers! It’s National Wine Day today in US and Friday Frivolity is celebrating. I’m bringing you guys a simple craft idea that you can share with your friends.

Happy International Museum Day, everyone! Here ate Friday Frivolity we are celebrating museums. Every year on May 18 Museum Day has been held since 1977. Nearly 30,000 museums across the globe have participated. If you weren’t able to make it to a museum today I’m sharing 10 dioramas you can make at home to explore art and nature with your children.

Happy Eat What You Want Day, everyone. Today for Friday Frivolity we are celebrating food and I’m going to share with you a way to utilize baby cereal in a fun new way. If you are anything like me then you have tons of baby cereal laying around the house leftover from when your little ones were even littler. They get a couple teeth and start to refuse their cereal so you end up with a bunch of containers and no way to use them. Baby cereal pancakes are a great way to utilize those leftovers. Children who like to feed themselves can snack on these and still get all the healthy benefits from the cereal inside.

May the force be with you, all on this most special of Star Wars holidays. Here at Friday Frivolity we’re celebrating May the Fourth Be With You and I’m bringing you a Yoda craft to honor one of my favorite Jedis. This glow-in-the-dark shadow box is great if you’re looking for homemade Star Wars room decor.
The last Friday in April is Hairball Awareness Day. Here at Friday Frivolity we are spreading awareness for this unconventional holiday (and celebrating cats, of course). Let’s get into the basics of hairball awareness and later I’ll share a DIY catnip toy project to give your kitty a treat.
Hairballs are a fact of life if you are a cat owner. Cats spend hours a day grooming themselves so hairballs are bound to happen. Their rough tongues can force hair to be swallowed. Much of it gets passed through the digestive tract but some of it stays in the stomach and collects. Mixed with digestive fluids it turns into a log shape and eventually gets pushed up onto your probably expensive rug or bedding set because that’s always how it seems to go. Continue reading
It’s finally springtime and I could not be happier. This week at Friday Frivolity we’re celebrating the Earth. Earth Day is April 22 and we wanted to honor that special day and celebrate the phrase “April showers bring May flowers.” The craft I’m bringing you today incorporates both those ideas. This week I made coffee filter suncatchers. It’s a super kid-friendly craft that uses materials you probably already have.
It’s almost Easter, everyone! Here at Friday Frivolity we’re celebrating early for this upcoming weekend. If you haven’t thought about what to put into your toddler’s Easter basket this year I’m going to share what my 17 month old got in hers.
What’s in my Easter basket?
Everything you see here I picked up at Walmart. Target has adorable baskets too but I found this Mickey Mouse bucket for about $5 at Walmart and I had to get it. The color is like a seafoam green and it’s very big which made fitting all her goodies tons easier.
St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner and here at Friday Frivolity we’re here to celebrate. Today I’m bringing you a simple craft idea for kids, painted leprechaun hats.
I got almost all the supplies I used from Dollar Tree. The paints and brushes I already had laying around from prior crafts. Continue reading
