Can one DIY during a beach vacation? Affirmative! If you brought a marker and regular crayons you are set to go to make this lovely game/storytime aid. My stepdaughter Katie once again came up with a brilliant idea. With closed eyes, one person will draw a stone and start a story based on the image on the stone. The next person will then draw a stone and continue the story based on their stone…etc., etc. She played this with her little brother while I documented their creation and they have been storytelling every day since.

March Break is almost here, so I dug into the archives to find some fun things to do with the kids! Next week we’ll return with new projects.
I love a pinata! I find the store-bought ones are made of hard cardboard, they’re difficult to bust open, and they’re just no fun! If you have a few minutes a couple of days, they’re very simple to make and you’re left with a feeling of artistic accomplishment. For my son’s game-themed birthday this year, I decided to roll the dice and create this pinata.

I’ve been slacking a little bit when it comes to Valentine’s Day décor. Every year since my eldest was born, my mom has come over and decorated my house. Seriously. So this year, I wanted to try something a little fun for the boys that they could help create too. I’m just hoping it will last until the end of the month…I’ve caught all three “boys” with their hands in the candy jar tonight alone!
