How to Make a Toy Paddle Boat

This is what Liska said about her Paddle Boat project: “Before having a son, I could not imagine that one day I would be requesting a drill and an angle grinder for my birthday gifts. But as soon as my son was born, I wanted to make toys for him, and wood seemed like the most durable and safe material. This summer I wanted to make a wooden toy boat for my son, and Kara’s series Summer Survival for Moms of Boys encouraged me to start working on this project.

I know you’ve been there.  You’ve slaved in the kitchen for hours and prepared a yummy new recipe.  You are excited to try it out and you sit down at the table only to hear the moans and groans of your kids saying, “I’m not eating ‘that’!” or EWWWWW!   That happens to me all too often so whenever I find a recipe that my boys will actually eat, it becomes a staple at our house. My mom shared this baked spaghetti recipe with me awhile back and we decided to add some meatballs. This Baked Spaghetti and Meatballs recipe is a crowd favorite! [Read more...]
