It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣

This is such an easy and fun project. Just hot glue glue crayons to a canvas and melt with a blow dryer. ⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣

There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number. They offer nationwide coverage and their 4G LTE runs on the nation’s fastest, most advanced networks. The company is online only so they cut out the middlemen and can pass the savings onto us! ⁣

It’s officially only been a few days since the schools in our state closed, due to the coronavirus global pandemic. Our family has decided to self quarantine. We aren’t going anywhere aside from the occasional quick trip to the grocery store (and by quick, I mean 2 hours because that’s how long it took for Super Dad to pick up the handful of things on my list). Don’t worry though, he put on his gardening gloves (yes, gardening gloves) and stays a safe distance from others.⁣

There are so many things I should be doing but I need structure. Otherwise, I fall off course and my house looks like a tornado went through it.

I Totally Dig You Valentine for Kids

Looking for an easy and fun Valentine for your kids to give to their friends? Having three girls, so far apart in age, holidays like this can get expensive. So, this year, my girls worked together to find the perfect Valentine that’s great for all ages.  What they came up with is absolutely adorable and as perfect for Kindergarten as it is for Middle School. A small container of candy, a shovel spoon and a little note that says “I totally dig you.”

We purchased all of the supplies on Amazon, except for the Valentine candy and the things we already had in the house. In total, each Valentine wound up costing approx. $1 each.

The girls had a blast at the kitchen table, putting each box together for their friends and they can’t wait to bring them to school on Valentine’s Day and wow them with what they’ve created.

Supplies

You’ll need:

Clear Pillow Boxes
Round Labels
Disposable Shovel Spoons
Red Construction Paper
Valentine’s Candy
Tape
Scissors
String or Ribbon
Hole Punch

Directions:

  1. Take your pillow boxes and seal one side with a small piece of tape to make sure they stay closed.
  2. Fill the boxes with candy and seal the top with another small piece of tape.
  3. Secure the shovel to the front, center of the box with a small piece of tape.
  4. Cut out 2″ circles from the red construction paper.
  5. Print the labels. These can be created in Word, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop. Each label should say “I Totally Dig You!” and your child’s name.
  6. Peel a sticker and attach it to the center of each construction paper circle.
  7. Punch a hole in the top of each circle construction paper/label. I used a heart hole punch, but you can use a circle as well.
  8. Tie a piece of string around the box (at the center of the shovel).
  9. Thread the construction paper/label circle through the string and tie again to form a knot. Then tie into a bow.
