TogetherBox: Family Fun Without the Work

I had the opportunity to receive a TogetherBox in the mail to review.  All opinions are 100% my own. TogetherBox Do you love doing fun things with your kids but just don’t always have the time to put together the activities?  Or maybe you are like me and live in the middle of nowhere and don’t want to drive 45 mins to get the supplies that you need.  TogetherBox is a monthly subscription service that send family-friendly activities right to your door step and gives you step-by-step instructions so the play can begin immediately.  This is a great service to keep kids entertained over the summer.  My boys were very excited to open up the Spy Kit we received in the mail.

Easy Teepee Craft

Easy Teepee Craft If there is one thing that I have learned while blogging, it is that ordinary, every-day objects can typically be turned into something fun if you brainstorm long enough. I received some Styrofoam cones at a conference this past weekend and while I was brainstorming with some blogging friends about what to make, one of them said, “How about Teepees?” And so this easy teepee craft was born. […]

Groundhog Day Craft

Here in our little part of the world we have been having spring-like weather so I am actually hoping this stays for a really long time.  But, in just a couple of weeks we will find out if spring is coming for the rest of the country or if winter is sticking around for awhile when Phil pops his head out and looks for his shadow. We made this simple Groundhog Day craft as a fun way to acknowledge a some-what silly holiday. […]

Pool Noodle Swords

Pool Noodle Swords Every spring I watch for the dollar store to get in their stock of pool noodles.  Not necessarily because we need them for swimming, but because we have found so many other fun pool noodle activities. We even created a pool noodle goal post for my son’s Sports Birthday Party.  My boys turn them into weapons anyways, so it was only natural for us to make pool noodle swords out of them. […]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ornaments

These Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Ornaments were such a hit with the boys and fun to make.
