School is out and summer is finally here! I for one am super excited to spend the summer hanging out with my kids. The time has come to sleep in, stay up a little later, and have some fun. But we do want to make sure that we all don’t end up sitting in front of our TVs all day, so I like to plan fun arts and crafts and educational projects for us to do in the summer. State Fair® thinks the same thing! They want to remind you that life is an adventure and it’s all in how you look at it! Continue reading

Build a Pizza Garden for less money and in less time than delivery.

How to Make a Pizza Garden

Recently I had a brilliant idea! If I want my kids to eat what we grow, I have to grow with they want to eat first. What do most kids want to eat? Pizza! I will make a pizza garden. So it was off to the hardware store I went. Thankfully, I was able to find exactly what I needed very quickly. I grabbed four of these cinderblock bricks and one piece of 2x6x12 untreated pine (cedar also works). They cut them into four 3 foot pieces in most stores too. The wood was less than $6 total and the bricks were about $2.50 each. The grand total for a raised garden bed- $16.00!Continue reading

Ideas for Star Wars Birthday Parties

This was our year to celebrate in a big way for my son who was turning six. He wanted a Star Wars themed birthday pool party. So that’s what we did.I imagine he is not alone and that lots of kiddos are asking for Star Wars Birthday Parties this year.

Star Wars Birthday Parties are so much fun and easy to put together. We have all the ideas you need to make you party a success

 

This was his first and likely his only BIG birthday celebration as a little kid (we will do another big celebration once during the teen years). We usually just have we have a small intimate family gathering with dinner and cake and ice cream without the over the top celebrating. Or we do an activity birthday where I kids get to pick a friend and go to an amusement park or the movies. I want them to know they are special and their birtthdays are a cause for celebration but I do not think you need to go all out with a themed birthday party every year. However, when I do through a big party I am all in. So check out all the ideas below that you will need to make your Star Wars Birthday Parties a huge success.
