The stage is set. It is time to make a day that your mermaid princess will love. I thought that over the years the best memories were ones we created ourselves. That is why I always like to create parties for my daughter. You can make these mermaid crowns for the guests to wear at the party. You can have the crown to use as a party favor. You can even use them for table decor.
I also thought they would make a great table centerpiece. The truth is making these crowns will make your party unique and special just like your guest of honor.

Today was the last full week of school for my kids. That means only 3 more days until summer starts. YAY right? The kids are so excited they could burst. But as a mom I know that that excitement will quickly wear away by week two, day 3, 9am. It happens the same time each year without fail. And when it does, the kids will let you know. They will come up to you dragging their feet, and sour faces and exclaim with a sigh, “MOM, I’m SO bored!” and “There’s nothing to do!”. Here we have 2 choices. We can tell them to go watch some TV (and no judgement here, sometimes we all go that route) or we can direct them to an activity. So that’s where the idea for the “I’m Bored” Jar comes in!
Last week, spring popped in and gave us its yearly glimpse of the weather to come in a few weeks. But, now we are left with icy roads and dreary weather for days on end. So, of course, the kids are already going stir crazy (as am I). Today, I set out to conquer the boredom.
So many boxes!
Let’s be honest here: We all have boxes from our online orders sitting around. Aside from trying to shove them all in the recycling bin hoping they all fit they may seem useless. Unless you are moving sometime soon, this doesn’t seem very helpful. Don’t worry. There are other uses for them!
