I’ve known about the paleo diet for a while now but never really thought I could stick to it. Surprisingly my husband and I have been eating a “nearly” paleo diet except for a few cheat meals for a month or two now. My husband has lost 20+ lbs so far on the diet combined with daily exercise.
Mother’s Day is fast approaching so I thought all of you Moms out there would appreciate a somewhat fast and easy craft made from paper plates and various other household items. Since I homeschool one of my boys I am always in charge of coming up with and helping with his obligatory Mother’s Day art gift to me. I love coming up with ideas with him! Below you will find instructions for our paper plate craft as well as some helpful photos to help you create your craft too! Enjoy and Happy Mother’s Day to you!
I’ve been saving coffee cans for a while now with no real goal in mind as to what I was going to do with them. I used a few as planters and organizers but still had quite a few left. Today I came across an idea that involved upcycling coffee cans into kids drums. This came at a great time considering my 8 year old son asked for some drums yesterday. When I told him about our plans to convert coffee cans into drums he was thrilled and ready to get the job done!
Below you will find a step by step very easy tutorial on turning a coffee can into a drum. The supplies needed are also listed below along with several photos we took of the recycling craft process. I hope YOU enjoy this craft as much as we did!
Are you wishing the Spring weather would hurry up and get here? We sure are! This week we are learning about Spring and the lifecycle of a butterfly in our 2nd grade homeschool classroom AKA the living room. Normally by this time of year the grass is starting to grow and dandelions are sprouting all around. However, this year the snow and cold has decided to stick around which means we are still stuck inside.
Now on to our simple craft that also teaches children about the lifecycle of a butterfly. Here’s a photo of our finished product with step by step directions below.
With swimsuit season just around the corner, and New Year’s resolutions already half forgotten I thought it would be a great time to share with you these truly simple tips to get healthier and more fit. These tips do not require any elaborate crazy workouts, no gimmick/fad diets and no crazy expensive gym memberships. They do however involve real changes and real consistency in order to succeed. It really is simple but You have to want to change. I love the quote below so I used my photo and added the quote to it. If you like it I hope you will share it and Pin it! It’s a great quote to re-read everyday for motivation! With two kids and a very busy life, I follow these tips as much as I can. I’m 36 years old and have never had trouble with weight but this year I am working on toning up and hopefully getting ab muscles before swimsuit time!
One of our favorite Dr. Seuss books is There’s a Wocket in My Pocket! It’s such a fun read for kids of all ages because kids love nonsense!

By the way, if you are running out of ideas on what books to read to your kids then check out our Ten Books To Read To Your Kids This Year.
