"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!!!

Glow in the Dark Backyard Bowling

My boys love anything that involves glowing objects. Glow sticks are my new favorite thing with all the pins we find for them! We tried quite a few this summer. Some worked some didn't!
We ga a late nap today so I knew Callen would be up late so we decided to try glow in the dark bowling.
Easy set up just use bottles from your recycle bin fill with water and inset glow stick. They were pretty neat. I would double up on glow sticks to make them even brighter. My 9 year old had fun, as did my 2 year old. They just had to do it separately. Otherwise, when my 9 year old set it up they would be kicked over by a little stinker! He was getting frustrated as he wanted to bowl!

They had fun running with them and seeing the streaks, tossing them in the air and currently my 2 year old is enjoying lining them up inside and knocking them down with his truck. The boys are excited to use them as nightlights tonight. So lots of fun for a dollar! (the glow sticks)
