This Simple Playdough Recipe Lets You Make and Bake Playdough Sculptures
My 2-year-old son loves arts and crafts; the more tactile, the better. So it should come as no surprise that playdough is his favorite.

The only con is keeping a steady supply of playdough on hand, which can be a costly endeavor.The less expensive brands dry out too quickly even when sealed, while the more popular (expensive) brands are often hidden in other toys or smashed into the carpet.

We Found an Indoor Trampoline Our Whole Family Can’t Get Enough Of (and It’s Under $100!)
At the start of winter, things at our house were getting a little dire on the physical activity front.Our preschooler had a lot of energy to burn through and nowhere warm to do it. On the other end of the spectrum, our middle schooler would rarely leave her room on virtual school days, and my husband and I couldn’t break away from the kids or working from home in blocks long enough to fit in a workout. By the end of the day we were too exhausted to do anything but collapse on the couch.

An Ingenious Idea for Socially-Distanced Play Dates
As a parent considered very high-risk, in this past year we could not take shortcuts when it came to safety.

This One Tiny Change Made My Daughter’s Pandemic Birthday Extra-Fun
Staring down a pandemic summer without a single playdate or vacation, our youngest started clinging to the one thing she could look forward to — her August birthday. She was so excited to turn 4, we had to start a countdown calendar a month and a half out, marking off each of the 48 days until the big day. So the pressure was on to think of a safe celebration that would live up to all that pent-up anticipation. Our parameters: no guests from outside the household, and no leaving home.

The Best ’90s Board Games to Play with the Family
Trends may come and go, but one thing that’s not going away anytime soon is nostalgia for the ’90s.

Up until then, longer walks had been a bit much for our son, but at almost 4 1/2 he was able to tackle two miles.They were not fast miles, but they were just the thing to cure an energetic boy of his wiggles and two weary parents of their cabin fever.

How Parents Are Making Halloween Special in a Strange Year
My mom was always the mom who made the most out of a tough situation: She did a lot with a little. My sisters and I were the kids who looked forward to Halloween but couldn’t afford new costumes. So for four consecutive years, I wore the same white dress, which my mother kept reinventing as a new costume. I was an angel, Cleopatra, a ghost, and a bride (a very ’90s thing to do). We were the family who drove out to the more affluent neighborhoods to trick-or-treat.

I Tried the Viral Pumpkin-Carving Hack That’s All Over Facebook
Last year, our pumpkins had been sitting on the front porch, unadorned, for weeks. My 6-year-old had been pestering me every day to carve hers into a cat and I had been avoiding it — mostly because I didn’t want to deal with sticking my arm into sticky, slimy pumpkin guts to make way for carving. Then I saw a pumpkin cleaning hack on a Facebook video that inspired me to put it to the test and finally carve pumpkins with my kids. The results were surprisingly delightful.
