Soleil Moon Frye: How to Make a Holiday Snow Globe

12/17/2013 at 02:00 PM ET

To get an idea of how many arts and crafts projects Soleil Moon Frye works on with her two daughters, Poet, 8, and Jagger, 5, just take a look around their L.A. home.

“Our tiles are covered in paint. If you look under our couch pillows, there is paint. Our table is covered in paint,” says the expectant mom-of-two. “It’s very, very messy, but that’s the fun of it.”

That fun reaches North Pole-like levels on Christmas Eve, when the former child star, 37, and her husband, producer Jason Goldberg, 43, host a holiday blowout — complete with a crafting area for the littlest guests.

Molly Sims Teams Up With The Bouqs to Support Baby2Baby

11/19/2013 at 10:00 AM ET

Add floral designer to the many skills Molly Sims has in her repertoire. The model and mom — son Brooks Alan is now 16 months — is partnering with online flower delivery service, The Bouqs, to help raise money for Baby2Baby.

Sims and creative director and florist-to-the-stars Eric Buterbaugh (left) have created a special flower arrangement of white hydrangeas and green solidago called “Bundle of Joy” ($50), with $5 of each sale going towards helping less fortunate families get the essential baby gear and clothing they really need.

“Designing a floral arrangement with Eric was so, so, so much fun!” says Sims. “Helping others in need, especially during the holidays is so important. I was happy to be a part of such a creative and rewarding charitable endeavor!”

Karl! Anna! André! Adorable Fashion Icons Kids Costumes You Have to See

10/31/2013 at 10:00 AM ET

Down to wire and don’t know what you’re dressing your kids up for Halloween? Well, thanks to Oh Happy Day, a San Francisco-based party and lifestyle blog, here are four chic costumes you can whip up in no time.

Our favorite by far is the mini Anna Wintour. But the fur-clad André Leon Talley and red-wigged Grace Coddington are giving the Vogue editrix a run for her money. And the pint-size Karl Lagerfeld is a dead ringer for the real designer.

Want more details on how to create these fabulous looks before you head out to trick-or-treat? Check out Oh Happy Day’s two-part series here and here, which gives you all the details you need.

Boo-tiful! H&M’s Kids Halloween Collection Is Frightfully Cute

Your dreams of hosting a mini masquerade ball just got easier thanks to H&M’s new All for Children Halloween collection.

Inspired by 18th century fashions, it includes a luxe-looking sea captain’s coat ($30)  — complete with gold embroidery! — and a pink and light blue Marie Antoinette dress ($50) perfect for the famed French court.

But we think the real show-stoppers are the detailed accessories (blond wig, pug handbag, pirate boots, mermaid crown). And unlike the throwaway costumes we usually buy, these offerings are ready made for future dress-up sessions because they don’t scream holiday.

That doesn’t mean you won’t find the prerequisite spooky looks. There’s an adorable skeleton jumpsuit ($25), bat cape ($30) and pumpkin mask ($15) in the mix.

Great Ideas: How to Throw a Ghoulishy-Good Halloween Kids Party

10/10/2013 at 02:00 PM ET

Halloween is one of my family’s favorite holidays. Not only is it frightfully-fun, but it’s the one time of the year where we can let it all hang out … literally. But as a full-time event marketing executive and busy mom of three kids aged 10, 6 and almost 4, I’m always on the lookout for cool, easy-to-create holiday ideas.

In the weeks leading up to the spooky day, the kids and I like to decorate the house with pumpkins, cobwebs, tombstones and skeletons, buy tons of candy to give away and scour sites for the perfect costume (we typically get ours from buycostumes.com). But this year, I’ve decided to throw a boo-tastic bash that my children and their friends can enjoy. Below are my fave kid-friendly ideas. Check them out.
