"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!!!

In the process of moving my kids have been playing with boxes and just generally getting in my way. (not unusual) I decided to pull this project off of pinterest via celebrateeverydaywithmebut did a smaller scale as I did not want to use a large box until after the move! We cut tunnels and covered the box with white paper and added details by printing some items out. The street is simply construction paper with chalk on it for the lines. This is how it looks now! We are going to add things as we go so it will freshen the toy up! My monster loves to crash the cars in line and makes them race. He also likes to get the pullback ones out and fly them off the top or try to get them lined up to race through the tunner!
My 9 year old is already thinking of building a city...I need to hold him back until after the move or he will use all my boxes! :)
