John Krasinksi‘s new life as a dad of two girls has no doubt been a bit of an adjustment. But at least his older daughter Hazel is doing just fine with not being an only child anymore.

“She’s an amazing big sister,” The Hollars star, who welcomed daughter Violet with wife Emily Blunt in June, tells PEOPLE of his 2½-year-old little girl. “It’s a great age because she’s still young enough to not feel competitive with the baby, but still old enough to recognize how adorable the baby is. I think she’s in heaven.”

Is there something that Hazel does with her sister that’s especially cute? (Spoiler alert: Of course there is.)

“Honestly, just a hug is heartbreaking,” adds the proud dad, 36. “When Hazel gives a hug to Violet, right there in that moment you can see this huge relationship that will last much longer than I’m around … it’s so beautiful.”

Craft time can get very messy in Soleil Moon Frye‘s household, but it’s a chaos the mom of four happily embraces.

“I’m all about inspiring creativity in my kids and really trying to get their hands messy and dirty and inspire them to have fun and play,” says the former Punky Brewster actress and Seedling co-founder, 40.

With two daughters, Poet Sienna Rose, 11, and Jagger Joseph Blue, 8, and two young sons, Lyric Sonny Roads, 2, and 3-month-old Story, Frye (who is married to producer Jason Goldberg) loves crafting as a family.

“I believe in them really exploring their creativity on their own, but also together,” she says. “It’s something we love doing together. We love taking anything that’s reusable in our house and turning it into a craft project. We have so much fun when we get messy.”

From late nights together prepping for the next episode of Saturday Night Live, to figuring out parenting, Rachel Dratch relies on pals Tina Fey and Amy Poehler then and now.

And the large SNL brood gets together regularly for playdates — though Dratch says don’t expect an SNL kids show anytime soon.

“It’s pretty cool, we actually just had one,” she says. “It’s like regular kids hanging out though — I don’t want anyone to think like, our kids are doing comedy bits on the porch!”

Sara Rue‘s daughter Talulah may only be 3½, but she’s already inherited her mom’s penchant for comedy.

“She really does have a good sense of humor, and she’s able to laugh at herself. I am so grateful for that,” the actress, 37, tells PEOPLE. “And she started telling jokes.”

The star of TV Land’s Impastor says her little girl even has a signature one-liner that gets her and husband Kevin Price, 41, laughing every time.

“The best thing she says — and she says it all the time — is after me explaining, for example, ‘We can’t have sugar this late at night because it will keep you up or it might give you a tummy ache,’ she’ll look at me and just say, total deadpan, ‘I’m okay with that.’ ”
