Celebrate Summer With The Kiddies Cause It Will Be Gone Before You Know it!
Hi there! Summer is in full swing and the natives are getting restless! We have a couple of little ones here and a teen and an almost 21er. So we have the best of all worlds. It does not take a lot to make some fun, using the resources on hand could lend some happy children,
Like an afternoon of Story books as the thunder and rain cancel outdoor play.
Just a simple wading pool can conjure some cool pool fun!
Homemade playdoe is always a hit !
Fresh native Florida corn at lunch .....yummy!
A simple cardboard box with some cut out windows can keep the little ones occupied for a long time!
A Summer birthday is a hit with a cupcake tower, the cup cakes are candy stricken with jelly beans and ice-cream flavored lollipops
Kids love to bake cookies, our favorite is the Swigger sugar cookies. With all of our daily tropical storms we do spend allot of time indoors.
A typical stormy sky, and we see that nearly everyday
So this is our makeshift kiddie campsite......Just a 6 ft ladder covered with an old green duvet cover. Inside soft cushions to sit on.
A couple of bodies of water....a teaset and odds n' ends
Mud of course
This campsite has made for hours of summertime fun, especially when lunch is served on the mini table. The only bad part is when we have stop playing for the day.
One plus for the grownups is we can see the campsite from the screened in porch. Another great idea is doing construction paper projects there are many ideas online and the dollar store carries papers, glues, stickers, crayons and markers. So there you have it lots of summer fun for little or no money!

Traditions are also kept such as here every Christmas morning I make homemade cinnamon buns a sweet doe recipe from my late gram. Well what are you waiting for come on in!
Welcome...hope I find everyone enjoying everything Fall has to offer...as I see it I think that it may be everyones very favorite season. Here in Florida we have no changing leaves or Acorns but we do have some magnificent pinecones and a recent discovery of The Florida paper tree. My daughter and her friends went to the woods to gather some wood for the outdoor fire pit and as I was passing the wagon of cut logs I noticed they resembled birch tree a bit so I went and checked it out better. One of the logs was peeling apart oh I thought this is very cool so I grabbed a few logs and brought them on in the house I peeled one apart.
I thought I would try a couple of things first I covered a old floor board entirely. I used wood glue.
So I crafted this lodge sign just using some stencils and paint and attached these two?, sorry they look like a type of pine cone they were interesting so I gathered some.
Then I thought I would peel off some big enough pieces to wrap around just a typica…
Hello there......looking for a wonderful inexpensive Holiday Craft?? I have just the thing to gather the whole family around the table, serve a little hot cocoa and some cookies and it's a party! This is all you will need to get this party started......
Some basic white paper, scissors, glitter and some glue. The glue you will want to paint the finished snowflakes with but we did add a little water to it. I am so a magazine saver, this is an old one "Martha Stewart Kids", If you follow the numbered steps and besure to get a good fold the results areendless.
It is true no two snowflakes are a like! Once you get a "shovel" full its time to bring them to the glitter box, just a shallow box to sprinkle glitter, before that just a couple brushes of glue which we did in a different box then the glitter.
This is just one cut but once you follow steps 1-5 you can make your own cuts !
Little miss smarty pants which is my oldest daughter decided to show off with he…
