"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!!!

Today we decide to paint with circle objects, trying to teach my 2 year old shapes. We rounded up different sizes of circles and dipped them in paint then onto paper. We stuck with 2 colors as we are going to use the art in a project later. I also have figured out to limit the colors I give him otherwise it ends up bring a big blob of color! Callen enjoyed this a lot. We used bottle caps, crayon ends, Dixie cups, and toothpaste caps. It is quite messy but he had a lot of fun dipping! :) great project for little guys! My 9 year old wasn't entertained. I have an idea for the art that will come in a later post!
