Homemade Pizza Dough

Pin It
A few years ago, when my oldest was about 3 1/2 years old, my husband took him to a restaurant to pick up some pizza. While they were waiting for the food my husband and son were talking about how the people working there were pizza makers. That was their job.
 Right then and there my son decided that when he got older, he wanted to be a pizza maker.
In Pre-school and Kindergarten when all of the other kids were talking about being a firefighter or a sports star or whatever, my son, with so much excitement, would exclaim that he is going to be a pizza maker.   
At first I thought he might eventually grow out of it.
Nope.
At almost 8 years old if you ask him what he wants to be when he gets older, his answer is a pizza maker.
He has decided that he wants to have his own restaurant and he wants my husband to work there with him. (So sweet)
Last year I decided if that's what he wants to do he should probably learn how to make pizza.
We experimented with a few different recipes and tweaked them a little bit, and have come up with this pizza dough recipe.

DIY Apron for Kids

Pin It
My boys love to help me bake, sometimes they will even help me make dinner, but not as often.
Baking with kids 'helping' usually means there will be some sort of mess.
To at least keep them a little cleaner I decided they needed some aprons. 
(These will also be used if they want to paint), I love things that are versatile! 
These aprons are made with 1 fat quarter and a little extra fabric around the outside edge.
After making this one for my middle child I realized that we could have just used ribbon around the edges instead...oh well.
At the beginning of the summer we were at the store and I let my boys choose one fat quarter of fabric each to make their apron with. I loved watching them look through the designs and colors until they found just the right one.

Baby Food Jar Piggy Bank

Pin It
My 3 year old has been loving the idea of coins lately.
I think he's been watching his older brother earn money for doing extra chores and using that money to buy toys.
The other day my son found a few coins and wanted to have somewhere to put them.
He asked for a piggy bank.
After searching around the house and trying to find a container to use, I remembered that I had some empty baby food jars, perfect!

Angry Birds Piggy Construction Cake

Pin It
This is my third and final post from my son's Angry Birds themed party.

If you missed my other two posts, I showed you how to make an Yellow Angry Bird Pinata and also some Red and Yellow Angry Birds Cupcakes.
Before the big day my son and I had been talking and throwing around ideas for the cake.
My son told me that he wanted Angry Birds cupcakes and a piggy cake.
I knew I wanted the cake to be easy since the cupcakes would be a little more time consuming.
I love how this cake turned out, but more importantly, my son loved how it turned out!
It's pretty self-explanatory but I've got some step-by-step pictures to show you the process.

Angry Birds Cupcakes Tutorial

Pin It
The other day I showed you a step-by-step tutorial for the Yellow Angry Bird pinata we made for my son's 3rd birthday party. (You can check out that post here).
Today I am back to show you a quick tutorial for the cupcakes we served at the party.
I ended up making 2 dozen of these cupcakes, 12 red birds and 12 yellow birds.
I've tried to include pictures to show the process, and I will explain as much as I can, but as always if you have any questions let me know!
