I had some comments on the fun Angry Birds sandwich yesterday so I knew I had to share this amazing Angry Birds party from Simply Styled Home. What is it about this game that is so fun for everyone? This makes me want to go stack up some boxes so we can knock them down. That's enough to make any boy laughing.
Today is the boys' first day of school. They are SO excited to start. I'm a little sad, I do miss them when they're gone all day. I dread the thought of packing lunches until next May as well. It's definitely my least favorite part of the school year.
Jill from Meet the Dubiens does a feature called Fun Food Friday (which is a great idea that I may steal for my boys' lunches a fun lunch on Friday instead of every day of the week)
p>My boys are fans of the show Phineas and Ferb. I admit that I think it's pretty cute myself. Being an older sister I can relate a little to Candice! Anyway if you haven't seen the show, Perry is a pet platypus who is actually a secret agent (Agent P). I pinned this tutorial on Pinterest a while back and the boys made their own Perry's out of a plastic water bottle, forks (leftover from the Harry Potter Party), masking tape, cardboard from a cereal box, markers, and googly eyes.
So the big crafting plans I had for this changed a bit when the boys got involved (isn't that how it always works?!) I figured we'd use these boxes for something so the boys and I came up with making a house which then turned into a Lego Spy Headquarters. When I asked why a Lego spy headquarters wouldn't be made out of Legos I got an exasperated look and "Mom, if it was made out of Lego's the bad guys would know it was a spy headquarters". He has a point!
In addition to saving and spending, we try and help the kids separate their money into a "giving" category as well. In addition to church I found some organizations that I thought were fun and easy for kids to get into.
