"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!!!

Construction Box

I always see sensory boxes for kids on www.pinterest.com so I decided to try one and see what my 2 year old thought. We chose the construction one with small rocks. I did not search high and low for construction trucks just added any trucks I found in the first crate I came too! :)
SMALL PEBBLES OR ROCKS (I opted for small rocks as he is less likely to eat them)

Callen loves it! He bury's the trucks, puts rocks in them, digs with the spoon and is pretty neat with it. He puts the lid on it and puts it in it's home and brings it out when he wants to play with it. Super cute and I had no idea this idea would work! Will do another. I liked the ocean one too.... Another success thanks to all the creative peeps on pinterest!
