Fun Things To Do This Spring/Summer



Spring is quickly transitioning into summer, and while the weather is heating up and the kids gear up for the upcoming “outdoors season”, the occasional rainy day still brings up the classic question: what can we do as a family while trapped inside the house, waiting for better weather? There are a number of different things that can be done to pass time on rainy spring days! I have provided a list of some of my favorite things to try out below!

Board Games
A classic rainy day activity. For younger kids, there are always the classics like snakes and ladders and candyland. These are great ways to teach kids a little bit of math (counting squares counts as math, right?) while having some fun. For older kids, games like risk can take up a whole afternoon, as your family turns into a little UN and the diplomatic negotiations start. Board games are an easy way to get the whole family around the table for some wholesome fun!

Movie Marathons
With the advent of streaming tv and movies through apps like Netflix, marathoning visual media has never been easier! Pop some popcorn, pick your favorite series of films, and cozy up with the family to watch some movies and those rainy days will fly right by.

Colouring and Crafts
A new fav for me and my family, colouring sheets can be printed online (there are a ton of great resources online for free printable colouring sheets). Crafts can also easily be found online, and many can be made with stuff you have lying around the house! To start you on your colouring adventures, Certified Cartridges have provided this spring themed printable, if you are looking to kickstart your new favourite rainy day hobby!

DIY Table Revamp - Guest Post

Hi all! I'm Tiffany from This Motherhood is Brought to You by Xanax and I am so excited to be a part of the Guest Post Swap and to be Amanda's swap partner! I love love love her idea on how to make indoor snowballs with egg cartons. I am definitely going to have to try that with my kiddos since my smallest one has decided that it has to snow for Christmas. Poor baby doesn't know snow is hard to come by in Alabama :( For my guest post I wanted to share a little DIY with you guys that involves duct tape! A few months ago my daughter's little chair that goes with her table she sits at every day tore and she made it worse by pulling all of the stuffing out of the seat! What started out as a quick fix turned into a great idea. She loved her seat so much that she has now decided that her table has look cool too so being the smarty pants that she is, she tore her table!

While shifting to your dream house, you may face a mountain of pre-move work, including downsizing, packing, hiring moving trucks, and other help. When you already have a list full of tasks, home improvements for the new house might be the last thing. However, handling the new house renovation before moving in is convenient for you in many ways. Planning home improvement is exciting and stressful both.
