DIY LEGO table

DIY LEGO table

Last year for Christmas, Santa brought my older boys a foldable/storable LEGO table and it has had constant use since then.  But, the saying, “Two’s company, three’s a crowd” tends to apply with my three oldest boys and my 5-year-old is normally the third wheel and was feeling a bit left out.  So, Santa did not disappoint this year and brought him his very own DIY LEGO table.

Build Your Own Tank Craft Giveaway!

tank craft

I cannot tell you how excited my boys were to open a box from the mail and find this fun Build Your Own Tank craft from!  They were starting to get a major case of end-of-summer boredom and they went right to work building their tank.

I have been really busy the past month preparing for some major exams and my boys were starting to get sick of me being unavailable for the types of projects we normally do so this couldn’t have come at a better time. has come out with a fun new line of boy crafts (THANK YOU!) that replace the glitter and girlie you find in most project kits with rockets and camouflage.  If you have followed me for any amount of time you will know that one of the reasons I started this blog was to share more craft ideas for boys.

DIY Pool Noodle Goal Post

Goal Post

Last month we threw the Ultimate Sports Party for my now 7-year-old and we had lots of fun using some of the pool noodle activities I shared on the blog last summer as well as this new pool noodle goal post.  I turned to my handy, dandy husband and asked him to come up with some sort of goal post to be used in a field goal kicking competition and this is what he came up with.  (We’re so lucky to have him around. :) )

I’ll try my best to give a good description of how this was made but if I leave something out or don’t explain something very well, leave me a comment and I’ll have my husband answer.  Sound good?

Monday Motivation: 10 Lessons Learned from Life on the Farm

life on the farmToday’s Monday Motivation is a tribute to the two men in my life who helped to shape me into the person I am today: My dad and my Grandpa.  I think it is fitting to share this with Father’s Day yesterday and I hope my dad knows how much I love and appreciate all of the many life lessons he taught me over the years.  He is the absolute hardest worker I know and has always been a source of strength to me and my family

Do it well or not at all: 10 lessons I learned from life on the farm

I consider myself fortunate.  Growing up on a farm in the Utah countryside was one of my greatest blessings.  Life’s lessons were not just talked about, they were taught to us by example every day.   And every day of my youth, I watched my father and grandfather dedicate their days and nights to planting, watering, and growing crops and taking care of animals.  But beyond a love for animals and an appreciation for where our food comes from, I learned many life lessons through their examples.

Photo Block Pencil Holder

Photo Block Pencil holder Mod Podge washout

This week I received a box with Mod Podge Washout and Apple Barrel paint which I was so excited to use with my kids.   I love Mod Podge but I don’t normally let my kids use it because of the mess involved but Mod Podge Washout is pretty much the same great formula as Mod Podge gloss but it washes out of clothes with just soap and water, even after it has dried.  Bonus!  That makes it perfect for craft projects at home or school.
