Keep the Kids Busy with Sidewalk Paint

Summer holidays are half over for us, and although the kids have had some lo-o-o-ong days, they haven’t begun to sing the “I’m Bored” song yet. When the kids did start to get a bit restless, I mixed up three batches of this Sidewalk Paint and they were busy for a few more hours. I […]

Well, it’s no secret, when the kids are home from school, schedules and routines change! In the two weeks that the kids have been out of school, I haven’t made it to one garage sale. That, however, doesn’t mean that I don’t make it to the thrift store! We went out to visit family last […]

Gluten-free Play Dough

When your child is diagnosed with Celiac disease, one thing that may slip your mind, as you’re removing the Oreos and Teddy Grahams from your cupboard, is the other non-food items that your child comes into contact with that could be making them ill.

I’d been outta the house two days in a […]

Everyone loves a deal (especially in this day & age), and with everyone having such an abundance of “stuff”, and a short attention span, the things you can buy second hand are very often quite […]

Friday Finds ~ Second-Hand Scores {June 1, 2012}

I have been having such a FANTASTIC time going to garage sales this spring so far. This past weekend my family of four loaded into the SUV to hit 3 community garage sales. Yes, we actually enjoy the hunt that much. The kids were well behaved, we had a few good finds, and had a […]
