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.”

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.’ ”

Being a mom to 3½-year-old son Aden John Tanner and daughter Ariah Talea, 13 months, has helped Tamera Mowry-Housley to have a new appreciation for the little things.

“They have taught me to be present and enjoy the most simple things in life,” The Real cohost, 38, tells PEOPLE of her children with husband Adam Housley. “It gives me so much joy, especially as a busy mom, just giving them a bath, reading them a book, brushing our teeth together. They taught me how to have fun in the most simple moments.”

One of her favorite things to do with her kids is finger painting.
