"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!!!

4th of July Firework Art

With all the activities going on for the 4th we stuck to a simple painting project. I set out red and blue paint added some water to thin it and gave the boys a straw. I quickly had to take the straw away from my 2 year old as he did not grasp to blow in it, he would for a minute and then tried to suck up the paint so...we gave him a paint brush.
Carter was excited they looked like fireworks, but it was not as easy as it looked. I guess next time I will add more water to the paint so he won't have to blow so hard! :) Quick, Easy, and something new with paints.
