"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!!!

Chalk board book

We are loving chalk board paint! My 2 year old loves to use chalk, markers, pencils anything and thought this was a great idea for a diaper bag/purse busy book. We are always looking for something to keep him busy in the waiting rooms, restaurants, in the car and football practice that will keep him still! We got this idea from creative chalkboards via pinterest we changed it up some and made it easier for a 2 year old. I think I will make one for my 9 year old also with the games inside like that one.

We used an old board book he no longer used and sprayed it with 2 coats of chalkboard paint. Waited 24 hours and it is ready! Simple!!

We will be adding an eraser and chalk holder to it. Just have not figured out what to use yet! Both boys are enjoying it! My 9 year old plays games and my 2 year old scribbles and makes his bubba draw for him. Does not erase great so I will have to figure that out too!
