February 28, 2014 17 Comments

These DIY summer road trip kits & memory boxes are part of a sponsored campaign for #CollectiveBias. All opinions expressed are my own.

I have always loved road trips. Almost immediately after I started driving, my friends and I would plan a handful of road trips each summer. Last summer was the first time I went on one in years, but we didn’t take the kids. I have always thought about where we can go as a family, but how would I, or we, survive?

DIY Kitchen Busy Kit for Little Ones

February 1, 2014 No Comments

The kitchen is basically the center of our house. Between prepping for meals, cooking, snacks and cleaning, we spend a lot of time there. Often when I am trying to get things done, if they aren’t eating, the boys are running around and making a mess. I have to quickly find something to get their attention and keep them busy.

Battling Cough, Cold, & Flu Season with 3 Kids + a DIY Kleenex Box Train Craft

December 13, 2013 6 Comments

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Kleenex but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #KleenexTarget  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

When someone gets sick on our house, a one-day virus can easily turn into a few week ordeal. It doesn’t take much for my 2, 3, and 4 year old to pass around the sickness like a ping pong ball. No matter how much I try to prevent it, every year it happens. We have to find ways to stay busy indoors during these times, and crafts are always a hit.
