This craft project came about after my family and I previewed a new children’s show on Amazon Kids called Niko and the Sword of Light. My daughter loved the headpiece one of the main characters, Princess Lyra wears, but I didn’t have anything similar in my craft box. So, we whipped up something else princess-y instead.
It’s actually possible that your kids eat more during the summer. No, really. I have experience. First it’s breakfast, then snack an hour later, lunch an hour after that, another snack after that and so on. Our kids burn energy so fast that they pretty much need to constantly eat to feel satisfied. To be honest, I would love to eat small bites of food throughout the day!
Fourth of July is over and summer is in full swing. Every day my kids have spent morning till past dinner time outside with the neighborhood kids. They’re running, laughing, riding bikes and using their imagination. It’s exactly the summer I would wish for them. Even though they’re getting plenty of play time in, I want their brains to be active, too.
I started reading The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo four days ago, and I’m now half way through. I find myself carrying it around to try and sneak in a few pages. Instead of watching TV at night I’ve been diving into this. It’s been a nice change!
I’m a sucker for a holiday craft. I love to create grownup DIYs and love to help my kids. We are all super excited for the 4th of July. Mostly because there’s lots of eating, swimming and chatting. It’s always a good time.
It’s day four of our summer vacation and already my kids are looking for more to do. You should see my parenting style these days. I’m certain they’ve eaten too many popsicles and probably watched too much TV. I’ve known for a while that going into this summer, in particular, may prove challenging for me because my youngest is only 7 weeks old.
Over the years, I’ve gotten better at packing snacks super quick. With little kids, I’ve learned you have a small window to do just about anything, so you’ve got to move fast. In my opinion, as long as you have snacks in your pantry and refrigerator, you will be ready to leave for a car ride at a moment’s notice.
When your new baby is your fourth child, life around you still moves full speed ahead. Because of our hectic life at the moment, my kids have enjoyed more take-out for dinner and food on the go. I recently learned Wendy’s has some yummy, fresh options for the summer.
