Valentine Boxes For Boys: Easy, Creative and Fun to Make

By | February 2nd, 2019|Categories: Crafts/Activities, For the Boys, Holidays, Valentine's Day|Tags: , , |

We love getting crafty on Valentine’s day and my boys are getting pretty good at designing their own Valentine boxes for school.  Here are some of our favorite Valentine Boxes for boys. Valentine Boxes for Boys Every year my boys design a fun Valentine box that is taken to school empty and that returns full of Valentines from their friends. I was told recently that this doesn’t happen anywhere but in the US, and even then a lot of schools don’t allow it.  Boo! If your kids are allowed to make Valentine boxes, these are my favorite Valentine boxes for boys that we have made.  My boys have a lot of fun designing their Valentine boxes and I’m glad that I can provide a little bit of enjoyment and a lot of memory making with my boys while they are little. Here are a few of the Valentine boxes my boys have made: […]

Star Wars Snowflakes

By | December 19th, 2018|Categories: Christmas, Crafts/Activities, For the Boys, Holidays|Tags: , , |

Every year our family loves to make snowflakes together. We are always on the look out for some snowflakes that are better than the average snowflakes we would normally make.  These Star Wars snowflakes are seriously the best thing ever! Star Wars Snowflakes My boys love Star Wars Crafts and Star Wars inspired recipes, so we were excited to find these creations by Anthony Herrera.  What was supposed to be about 10-20 minutes of making paper snowflakes turned into an hour or more of Star Wars snowflakes.  I finally had to  call it a night on this project because we could have gone all night and someone has to enforce bed time around here.  I know, I hate to always be the bad guy that ruins all the fun.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of P&G at Walmart. The opinions and text are all mine. Football playoff season is here, and that means families everywhere are getting together with friends and gathering around the big screen to cheer on their favorite team and to eat some yummy food! But sometimes it can be hard to enjoy the game if you have little ones to entertain who aren’t quite as excited about the game as you might be. When you host your next football game day party, print these Football coloring pages to help keep the kids busy so you can stay focused on being the best host to your guests, (and enjoy the game too!)

The Ultimate List of Mother and Son Date Ideas

By | November 14th, 2017|Categories: Crafts/Activities, For the Boys, Just for Mom, Parenting|Tags: , , , |

They say “don’t blink”. I don’t know who “they” are, but I’m starting to understand what they are saying. Each day I blink and then my baby starts kindergarten. Or I blink and my oldest is taller than I am. Next time I blink he might be heading out on his first date. And I’ll be stuck at home longing for the days when he was my special date and we went on adventures together. Since we can’t stop time, we can make the most of the time we have. These Mother and Son Date Ideas are the perfect and easy way for moms to build an unbreakable bond with their son.   Mother and Son Date Ideas One thing that I have noticed in raising my 4 boys is that they crave, CRAVE one-on-one attention.  They want to have time with just mom or dad and not the entire family. A Mother and Son date night doesn’t have to be complicated or expensive. We have a large family (by today’s standards) and it can be hard to have time for each of my boys individually but these Mother and Son Date Ideas will get your brainstorming process started. Mom and Son Date Ideas […]
