"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!!!

Get Well Soon Kitchen Science Basket

My 7 year old nephew had his tonsils and adenoids out. He is having a rough go and it is pretty sad to see him that way! Carter has been having a lot of fun with the kitchen science experiments we are doing so we decided it would be fun to put together a basket for my nephew. They will be great inside projects while he is recovering the next couple weeks! We added a few extra items non-science but the majority of it is for science experiments! Here is what we got all from the dollar store!

Foam Letters
Dry Erase Board (since he cannot talk) this will be fun for writing down conclusions too!
Baking Soda
Food Coloring
Corn Starch
Glow Sticks
Little Snakes and other animals

We printed out the experiments we have enjoyed the most from sciencebob.com and stevespanglerscience.com/ Put them in plastic sleeves and completed the basket. I will probably put a toy or something in, just in case he is not over excited about the science stuff! I  think they will be good things to keep him busy other than video games! :)
