I adore these cute little animals made from upcycled toilet paper or paper towel rolls. So simple to make, you can turn them into little favor boxes with treats inside, finger puppets, or just use them for imaginative play. We filled them with candy and glued hearts to the bottom of ours for a sweet Valentine's Day gift. What will you do with yours?

Due to a major pirate obsession, my son's third birthday theme this year was...you guessed it, pirates! I immediately began trolling Pinterest boards for ideas, researching and feeling overwhelmed with planning a toddler pirate extravaganza. There's so much information out there! In an effort to help my fellow NJ moms (who have like-minded mateys), I decided to put together a list of what I thought was most helpful for planning your very own pirate party in NJ!
