Keeping a Family Organized

Keeping up with the family is a FULL time job.  Planning food and menus, music lessons, sports, school project, chores... the lists to keep straight go on and on.  And on some more.  Shew - I get tired just thinking about it.  Hence why I luuuuurve and can really appreciate this Family Command Center by The Clay Family.  It has the menu, schedules and chore lists all in one place and easy for the kiddos to understand.  Can't wait to get one of these in our house! Great job The Clay Family and thank you for sharing!

Love these creative ways to engage your children outdoors.  Plenty of time to try them all this spring and summer! What would you add?

Snack Time

I search ENDLESSLY for fun, creative and healthy snack ideas for the kiddos.  Most kids love yogurt, so I was super excited to find these Frozen Yogurt Dots on One Good Thing by Jillee. Super easy, super delicious and a healthier frozen treat alternative to ice cream!  Yummy!!

Chores For Children

Most agree that having children do chores is a positive thing... It teaches responsibility, a feeling of accomplishment and the value of earning money (provided an allowance is associated with these chores, of course!).   Keeping track of each child's chores can be difficult - for both parent and child!  We found these AWESOME chore charts at Posh Little.  They are colorful and modern and a great way to keep the family organized!

Love these!  And better yet.. the KIDS will love these!

How to Make A Lemonade Stand

Summer time.... Sweet summer, summer time!  What seems to go hand in hand with kids and summer vacation?  Lemonade stands!  My kids love to visit them, and I happen to have a soft spot for little kids selling stuff, so we always stop.  (Yes - the Girl Scouts SCORE BIG at our house! :) 

I love how Staci at Just Sew Sassy turned an old desk into one AMAZING lemonade stand!  What little budding  entrepreneur wouldn't love to set up shop here?!?

Check out how she made this amazing transformation.  Super creative and HUGE impact!  I know all the neighborhood kiddos must LOVE it!

Great idea Staci!  Thank you for sharing!
