"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!!!

Olympic torch

We had fun teaching my son about the Olympics and are enjoying some Olympic themed crafts and of course we had to do a torch!
Items needed:
Paint stick
Crystal light container

We rounded up things from gone to do the project. It is fun to see my 9 year olds mind work on what he can gather and what he can use. He does tend to go overboard so I have to keep an eye on him! ;) this is another one he did by himself I simply supervised and talke to him about the symbols of the Olympics while he worked!
He glued the felt around the paint stick making it look like a flame. He then decided he needed a holder and wrapped ribbon around the crystal light container and stuck his torch in! He is very happy with the outcome and is already talking about riding it around on his bike and handing it off to a friend down the street! He wants to see if he knows enough people to make it go around the block lol.
