Get in your wizarding best and play a good ole game of quidditch. Kids will have a "ball" reenacting the fun Harry Potter sport, including a snitch, quaffles, bludgers and brooms! A few tweaks to the official rules and your kiddos and their friends will be remembering this birthday for years to come. Here's a link for official rules and other Harry Potter ideas: http://www.flaxandtwine.com/2011/11/harry-potter-party.html

Can you share a favorite Valentines Day project or recipe that moms can do with kids under the age of 6?

Anne Weil

Create beautifully colored, layered salt, containers with a secret inside. Look at below link for how-to tutorial to color salt with chalk - color it blush, pink, red and purple. Pour in layers into a jar with a hidden love note or well wrapped sweet inside for a beautiful valentines craft and gift.

What is your favorite Spring Break craft project for kids?

Anne Weil

This is a tutorial for creating rainbow salt. It is such a fun project to do with almost any age child. All you need is salt, chalk, and a small jar. These would add beautiful pastel colors to an easter centerpiece as well. Give it a whirl! http://www.flaxandtwine.com/2011/03/rainbow-in-jar.html
