    Easy DIY Tiki Torch Tutorial

    How to make an inexpensive tiki torch with dollar store bottles

    Tiki torches make the perfect summer addition to any porch or patio. They are great for adding a little light at night or even to help keep the bugs away. We use them to keep those nasty mosquitos away, where we live they are everywhere.  The tiki torches that stake in the ground are great but I was looking for something that I can have a little closer to us when we are sitting on the porch.  They were so easy to make that I made a few of these.

    Silly Face Lego Storage

    Diy Silly Faces Lego Storage

    Hey guys! Sorry I have been MIA for a few days, it’s summer and these kiddos are keeping me busy. Well, now that I actually have a free minute let’s get started. If you guys are like me then Legos are a pain in your butt! They are so much fun for kids and they can spend hours and hours playing with them but when it comes to storing them it can end up being a nightmare. If you don’t separate them and your child can’t find the one he/she wants, then expect a mess, and the chance of you stepping on one grows higher and higher. Have you ever stepped on a Lego? If you have it’s not something you will likely forget. I like the idea of sorting by color but you can sort them however you would like Continue Reading

    Paint Slip N Slide

    Have fun this summer with a paint slip and slide

    I don’t know about your kids but most kids I know love to play in the water. My kids usually take it too far and end up making a huge watery mess inside, in our bathroom. So to prevent that and about a dozen other inside messes, I try to plan fun things to do outside. We go to the park, visit friends, take a walk and play in the water outside. Their favorite is the slip n slide, something about sliding around in water on their belly is very entertaining to them. So I thought of a great way to spice it up by adding paint. It was a hit!

    Summer Boredom Tips and Printables

    Summer Boredom Tips

    Happy Summer guys! If you are like me you are probably tired of hearing ‘I’m bored” already. Am I right? Well I have come up with a Summer boredom Jar, and it is working great for my kids already. As parents we do have other things to do besides play and go outside or take the kids to the park all day everyday. If we did no one would eat and the house would be a mess, then we would have other problems to deal with. So for those times when the kids are bored let them pick a task from the jar. Check out my printables page to print out the jar label and tasks. I know all kids are different so I made a bunch of plain task slips for you to fill out, so that it meets your needs.
