dear santa,

As parents, some of us are Santa Clause apologists, while others are a little bit on the fence. Do we push this idea on our kids, or do we go another route? We know we had these same questions, but it seems kids find their way to the magic of Santa Clause with or without our help! Here’s a couple projects you can do with your kids to share in their excitement for The Big Guy. First, a letter (and free printable!) to Santa hand lettered by Maypole. And next, we have quickly become obsessed with Pebeo’s porcelain markers. You … Read more

small fry christmas cards

Now that all our Christmas greeting cards are signed, sealed and delivered, we can finally share them with you! Bri of Collected Blog designed each of them and she nails it every time.

Jenna shared her family’s year of traveling and installed a little baker’s twine map!  Emily put together an infographic marking the year in numbers, milestones, travels, and … Read more

Small Fry Films: Winter Workshop

Meet the McPhersons: Kristina, Bella, Coco and Miles. Today while the man of the house, Ben, is busy being a professional painter, Kristina is concocting tiny works of art with her three beautiful kids for their tree. Kristina’s interactions with her kids were so consistently sweet, it reminded us of this quote by Rose Kennedy, “I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one that demanded the best that I could bring to it.” Even … Read more

christmas countdown

On this, the last day before December, we want to share a darling junior sized Christmas countdown chain, just like we used to make as little girls. We debated an advent calendar, but all our kids are four or younger, and trying to keep those mitts off twenty-five tiny presents is almost laughable. This paper chain is a lot less headache and you can personalize each link with a holiday activity, act of service, or even a little love note. Tori of That Pair of Crutches (a must read, darling blog, and also an Etsy shop, enter SMALLFRY for 15% off) … Read more

snowman dress-ups

Playing in the snow is such a wonderful activity, in theory. It’s a lot of work to get kids ready to face the elements, that is if the elements will come to you at all in the first place. So far we haven’t seen much snow where we live, so this is an awesome project that you can use all winter long with or without snow on the ground and snow gear is optional. To keep it extra cozy, might we suggest Kicky Pants pajamas? There is virtually nothing softer out there. Here’s what we did: Using felt we cut … Read more
