Summer Boredom Idea Box

We were given the Nintendo and Lego items for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

It is officially the second day of summer break here and I didn’t want to hear the dreaded words, “I’m bored” all summer! I prepared ahead of time and created what we are calling, the Summer Boredom Box this year. It is a summer boredom idea box that is used as a reward system for when chores get done.

I wanted it to be used as a reward system, so that we were sure to get chores done before anything else. I also wanted it to be kept in a box that only one thing is taken out each day, so that everything is looked at as a novelty. Some days, we will be going out and doing fun activities after chores are done, so the box won’t be necessary on those days. But I will tell you, being on day 2 of summer break, I am already grateful that we have this box of goodies! [Read more…]

Connecting Over a Classic

There are so many times when you will hear adults complain over the amount of time that kids are spending in front of screens. If we are being honest with ourselves, the problem isn’t usually with the kids… it’s with the adults. Kids are sponges. When they see adults spending the majority of their days in front of screens, what do you think the kids are going to want to do? Rather than complaining about the amount of time that kids are spending in front of a screen, its important for the adults to put their own screens away to be the example.

Classic Legos

Over the past 2 1/2 years, I have tried really hard to make time each day to put away my phone and just spend time with my kids. Does it happen every single day? Unfortunately, it does not. BUT I am making the effort to let it happen on a pretty regular basis. That is why I loved the concept of National Day of Unplugging when I heard about it. It is a day where unplugging is literally celebrated! When I was asked to join in on unplugging with LEGO, I just knew I had to join!  [Read more…]

DIY Falling Lego Blocks Shirt & GIVEAWAY!

After seeing the Lego Movie, we officially caught Lego fever at our house. We already had plenty of Lego toys before seeing the movie, but as soon as we saw it, Harper couldn’t get enough of her Legos. To celebrate her new found love of Lego bricks, I decided to make her the cutest little t-shirt you have ever seen.

I was inspired to make a shirt with falling Lego bricks because that is literally what it is like when you are playing Legos with a toddler. There are Legos EVERYWHERE! I feel like there are falling Lego bricks everywhere you look so I wanted to embrace that and create a fun design on her shirt like that too. Honestly, I had no idea how cool this shirt would turn out. My husband even wants one in his size. The best part? It is probably the easiest thing I have ever designed out of vinyl too! It is totally a beginner project.

Create a LEGO Minifigure Holiday Card!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LEGO for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

When your kids get out of school for Christmas break, they are going to get bored pretty quickly. It is good to have some ideas already prepared for the times that your kids are driving you crazy because they are so bored! One thing that can really keep them entertained is this awesome website that lets you create LEGO Minifigure Family postcards!

I created one of my family and it cracks me up!

It looks just like we got the family all together for Christmas and we turned into LEGO minifigures!

This website is really easy to work with so your kids would be totally fine using it on their own. You can customize each of the minifigures to make them look as much like the actual people as possible. You can choose skin tone, hair and hats, and clothing. You can even add pets to your photo! After you create your minifigures, you can choose what scene you want them to be standing in front of too. You can then choose to save the photo or share it on your social media outlets.

It was so fun to make this and I can’t wait to share it on social media. I think my friends and family will crack up over it. Remember to send your kids over to create a LEGO Minifigure Family of their own as soon as you hear the words “I’m bored” this Christmas break!
