"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 Binoculars

Simple craft today! Kids love looking through Pop Pop's binoculars, so we decided to make some! The boys are out hunting in the yard now looking for Big Foot, Bad Guys, Birds and Bugs. I like that something soooo easy can keep them busy and get their imagination running!

Homemade Binoculars Items Needed:
2 toilet paper rolls

We just used paint tape and duct tape to decorate. You can have them decorate them or paint them if you want! Tape them together. Add a string or shoelace for them to wear around their necks and let them go!!! You can even tie this into the earlier scavenger hunt post and pair them up together! Have fun! We hope everyone is enjoying the posts and projects!
