Backyard Camping – Summer Survival



One of my greatest childhood memories comes from outdoor camp-outs in our yard or at my friends homes.  I love this post on Backyard Camping from The Real Housewives of Riverton.  It’s too hot to sleep outside at our house during the Summer but as soon as it cools off we’ll definitely be doing this.

This week on Summer Survival for Moms of Boys we are talking all about camping.   My boys beg us all summer long to take them camping so I love the idea of just setting up camp in the backyard.   Backyard Camping doesn’t have to be complicated and The Real Housewives of Riverton show us how to set up a simple camp and even how to make oven S’mores.  Yum!  She also includes some safety tips for parents if you are letting your kids stay outside by themselves.   [Read more...]

Kermit Pancakes – Muppets Breakfast

This is a sponsored post.  All opinions are 100% my own.

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love the Muppets and since they were always a favorite of mine growing up, I’m so excited that they are still making Muppets movies for my kids to enjoy. Muppets Most Wanted will be available August 12th at Disney.com and in anticipation of it’s Blu-Ray Combo Pack release we decided to make a Muppets Breakfast of Kermit Pancakes!

Every Summer my entire family plans a family get-away and this year I am in charge of the planning, food and activities.  We typically find a place where we can spend a good deal of time outside in nature and I found a really fun hike that we are planning on doing with the kids. We have quite a few smaller kids in our extended family and I was trying to come up with an idea that would make our hikes more entertaining for them and to help them really get involved with nature.  I came up with the idea of putting together some Nature Explorer Kits that would make it fun for the kids to explore the plants, bugs and animals we might come in contact with.

Messy Slip and Slide Ideas

Water Week continues on Summer Survival for Moms of Boys and I’m loving these Messy Slip and Slide Ideas from Capital B.   What boy wouldn’t want to get crazy messy while playing outside.  My boys do it anyways but if they knew they wouldn’t get in trouble that is even better!

Minecraft Target Practice

This Minecraft Target Practice from Dolen Diaries is such a great idea!  I think most boys love Minecraft and water guns so this is the perfect combination.

This week on Summer Survival for Moms of Boys we are sharing ideas for having fun in the water.  It’s the hottest part of the summer so water fun is definitely a priority.  Shelly from Dolen Diaries created these fun Minecraft creeper targets and I love her thinking.  Instead of her boys shooting each other in the face with squirt guns or NERF gun, they can now team up against the bad guys.  She gives a step-by-step tutorial on how to make these fun targets.
