“This post was sponsored by Nintendo as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.  I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.” This time of year is so busy for our family.  It feels as though we are running non-stop from sports to music lessons to scouts and on top of that, throw in end of school band concerts, Spring Break, school field trips and more and I am one exhausted mama.  My kids get tired as well and sometimes my boys just need some downtime. My boys are always on the lookout for the latest video games for their Nintendo 2DS and they were excited to try out Nintendo’s Yo-Kai watch. Yo-Kai Watch Giveaway […]

Alien Easter Eggs – Simple Easter Craft for Kids

By | March 2nd, 2016|Categories: Crafts/Activities, Easter, For the Boys, Holidays|Tags: , , |

We love our annual family Easter egg hunt.  I love getting together with family and my boys love that Grandma spoils them rotten with prizes for the eggs that they find.  Every year we are left with buckets full of plastic eggs. Most of them will go back into the closet to be stored for next year, but sometimes we like to have a little fun and make things like Alien Easter Eggs. Alien Easter Eggs I love making simple crafts with my boys, but I’ll be honest, they don’t always have the patience to do crafts with me. Can anyone relate?  So it takes a fun and simple craft that can be done in minutes to keep their attention.  These Alien Easter Eggs are the perfect Easter craft to do with boys.  They are silly and kids can use their creativity to come up with their own unique aliens.  […]
