We love to come up with different ways to create at our house. My 5 year old is constantly crafting in some way or another. As much as she loves to draw, color, and make crafts out of paper, she can get tired of those things and looks for other ways to be creative. That is why I love the idea of having a few little boxes ready with different activities that she can do, but they are considered to be a little more special and are things that she doesn’t play with every single day. I love sensory activities and this clay ice cream sensory activity has been a big hit at our house!

Simple Printable Service Project for Kids

Tracking Pixel
We have loved Mickey and the Roaster Racers literally since the very first episode aired. That is why I am so excited to have Disney Junior sponsoring this post! My daughter loves that all of her favorite Mickey Mouse characters are on a new show and loves each of their cars. She has actually learned quite a bit about geography as the Roadster Racers travel the world for their races on each episode. I really like the Happy Helpers segments with Minnie and Daisy. They show Minnie and Daisy as they help different people in various situations as they learn new skills along the way. It inspired me to create a little Happy Helpers service project race for kids to participate in!

If they are treating it like a race based off of one of their favorite shows, it makes it even more enjoyable! I wanted to make each service activity something that could be done by a variety of ages and made it a printable list so you can easily print it and get serving! [Read more…]

During the winter, there are few things I would rather do than go on a beach vacation! I have several friends who have been doing just that and it has given me serious wanderlust. Soon, I’ll be planning a trip that will involve the beach and I’m getting really excited about it! As much as I love spending time on the banks of the lakes nearby, there is nothing like soaking in the hot sun while enjoying the ocean waves.

I feel like we have lived at the pool this summer. Between swimming lessons and pool days, we have definitely done our time at the pool!

With the right hairstyles and products, you and your kids can enjoy the pool all summer long.

I love Hawaiian Tropic® Silk Hydration™ Weightless Sunscreen. It just feels like silky lotion on my skin, instead of feeling like I am caked in sunscreen. It provides 12 hours of moisture for your skin. I love using it daily!
