"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!!!

Homemade Bird Feeders

We are still up in the mountains so we decided to do a homemade bird feeder. Carter was a little disappointed that we were not actually making one out of wood but I promised him he could make something tomorrow using a drill, hammer and wood. He was ok with this. We found this on pinterest and now I cannot find it to post the link but it was easy and I think it was a hit!

Items Needed:
Empty Toilet Paper Roll
Peanut Butter

Take the toilet paper roll, have the kids spread Peanut Butter all over it and then roll in birdseed, sprinkle and fill the gaps! Then simply hang it on a branch! No rope needed!

Such Concentration!

Callen had a lot of fun sprinkling the birdseed on the peanut butter. He was very interested in how it felt. We checked on it and the blue jays are eating it! Every time I try to take a picture of the Jay though he leaves when he hears me approaching! Great Project for a 2 year old! Carter did the peanut butter and Callen did the seed. Great Team!! :
Finished Feeder!
