Kid Friendly Cuisine.. and I don't mean 'you make it they eat it.' I mean Kid COOKING friendly cuisine... I've roped a few of my favorite foodie bloggers into helping me out. My kids will try the recipes out first. So I promise they will be good!Kid Friendly Crafts.. yes.. the kind they can do basically on their own! (The best kind huh?)Kid Activities... ideas, places, stuff to do with kids this summer!andMom Crazy Finds for your Kids... fun kid stuff, creative solutions for kid problems, and more!
Let's Kick It Off!
FIRST: I want to introduce you to an outdoor active campaign sponsored by Grandparents.com!
Called Go Play OutSide! You don't have to be a grandparent to log your kids' outdoor hours.. I've logged mine this week— have you? Need some outdoor ideas? No Problem!
There are 97 outdoor fun ideas to get you outdoors. (YES I Said Ninety-Seven! Wow!) In easy to download PDF format. I'm looking at making a sundial, playing flashlight tag under the stars, playing frisbee and making a grass leaf whistle.. great ideas and most of them are free, time spent with kids, time spent outdoors... perfect to save this mom's sanity, how 'bout yours?
SECOND: I know they shouldn't watch too much TV. But sometimes (admit it) it's a necessary evil to help stop the whining! Here's my favorite solution: When it's mid afternoon siesta time, send them downstairs to watch a video, or play some video games. And I'm totally grooving on these amazing YogiPoof Bean Bags? I might have to join them!THIRD: I mentioned video games... here's one to counteract the afternoon siesta.
so intense... and even my 4yrold straps on the leg strap and gets his little work out on! Take the 30 day challenge!
Does a long summer with your kids make you feel (and sometimes look) like this?
Would you rather everyone looked like this?
