"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!!!

COLOR EXPLOSION MILK
This is another one we see everywhere on pinterest! The pin we used for instructions and question ideas is kidsactivitiesblog . They had some great ideas on questions to ask Carter. His answers were pretty funny! The nice thing about this is all items are on hand and not a lot of set up! Fill a plate so the bottom is covered with milk, drop food colors in and drip soap in! Very little soap needed! Put it q-tip for best result! Or just do a drop at a time!
The boys each got their own tub and I dropped the food coloring in. Then we talked about the soap going in and what it would do. Carter said "duh bubbles" He was quite surprised with the reaction! After multiple try's we decided it was best if you put he soap on a q-tip then put it in milk. It led to the best chasing colors. My 2 year old like it but had a hard time keeping his fingers out. His ended up brown pretty quick! Lots of fun though!
