"I think I know what we are going to do today Mom"
I am a mother of two rambunctious boys ages 9 and 2. I also have a chronic autoimmune disease which has changed my life around. I cannot do the things I used to. I do not want my kids to feel like they miss out on things. We have been using Pinterest frequently. It is a treasure chest of inspiration. We pin and pin and pin! Then they sit there....on the bulletin board. These great creative ideas that scream at me and make me desire to be more creative! I think I can do that! I cannot do a lot of things but I can do some things! I just have to change some! I am not working currently due to the disease. This summer I want to make fun! I want it to be one they remember! So...our goal is to take one of the creative ideas we have pinned a day and complete it. A pin a day. This can be a little one, a big one, just something to break up the summer days and do things that we normally would not! We can do it! These ideas are from the creative minds on pinterest and we hope you enjoy them! 86 days of Summer!!!

Colored rice sensory box

Again, I never thought my 2 year old would enjoy a simple little tote of things, he still loves his construction box and plays with it for at least an hour a day. He will ask for it and play independently with it which is huge in my house! This box was for both boys as Carter got the fun of coloring the rice different colors and finding what he wanted to put in it for his brother. He is proud of it.
To color the rice just food color an let dry. Carter put some weebles, a helicopter, a spoon and a few recycled k-cups to scoop and fill.

Callen was a little confused about the feel and texture of the rice but got into it! Carter buried things and told home to find them. Another hit with Sensory Boxes! Going to do an ocean one but that is for outside! :) 18 days down! I have to admit it is harder than I thought! We do plenty of things but there are days when I don't feel like doing any! The good thing is it keeps me motivated to get an activity done and good for the boys. We have been working on some other projects as well and will have some good posts coming up!!
