The Best Budget Camping Activities!

Camping can be as expensive as you let it become. When we go we try to ensure the kids have lots to do but we don’t spend an arm and a leg doing it. 

To enjoy camping with kids I suggest you invest in these simple products to keep the kids entertained and allow you to have a relaxing time out in the woods. 


Glow sticks and glow toys are a huge hit at night! These can all be found at the dollar store and you can stock up for a few nights of fun! 


Fishing rods are always a great choice and they do not have to be expensive. You can get a decent rod and reel setup for shore fishing for around $20. 


Light up lawn darts are an amazingly fun game. You can find cheap sets at certain dollar stores or buy them online or in Walmart. 


Sparklers are also lots of fun and make for some amazing pictures too. Load up at the dollar store for fun nights around the campfire.


Marshmallow roasting is a time honoured tradition and it’s a teachable moment about fire safety and hot food! 


Water guns and floaties are a great investment if your at a swimmable lake! 


Pellet guns and BB guns are great ways to teach kids about gun safety and you may spark an early marksman.


Bug catchers are a great way to keep the kids on the hunt for new and exciting creatures. Teach them about catch and release and different species of critters.

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!

3 HOME IMPROVEMENT TO MAKE BEFORE MOVING IN

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.
