Summer at my house means lots and lots of backyard barbecues. There’s just nothing that compares to hanging out with your family and friends while creating an amazing barbecue spread to enjoy. We have some tips to help you create the perfect backyard barbecue this summer and help you make some amazing memories. Our favorite backyard barbecue brands, HONEY MAID Grahams, HERSHEY’S Milk Chocolate and JET-PUFFED Marshmallows, helped me create today’s post and we are so excited to share some ideas with you
Cars 3 comes out in theaters today and this is a movie release that my family has been looking forward to. The first Cars movie came out when my oldest was little so the characters have grown with us as I’ve raised my kids.
We’ve all been excited to see the new movie and have plans to go see it today, but in the meantime, we are enjoying a fun new game from Spin Master. The Cars 3 Piston Cup Showdown Game is perfect for kids ages 5+ and a great way to entertain your kids this summer.
My kids love to play games together and since they are so excited about the release of Cars 3 right now, this was perfect. Cars 3 Piston Cup Showdown Game is a fun twist on red light green light.
Each of the two players pumps their button up and down when the green light is on to move as far forward as they can and stops when the light turns red. If they fail to stop after the light turns red the alarm will go off and you have to pull your car back to start. The first player to reach the end and cross the finish line wins.
Finding a way to keep kids entertained without them resorting to screen time when you are a work at home mom can be challenging. With 6 kids in my house (6 very ACTIVE kids) and a very full work at home schedule we are always looking for ways to stay busy.
I do not have a nanny, so I’m often working with my kids in the room with me and fielding 50 questions about what they can play. I find that by giving them plenty of options to have fun I get the time I need to focus on work and they get to work on important developmental skill
As adults, we don’t often know how to relax and have a good time. The idea of playing takes a back seat to work, household chores, and other responsibilities. Play is such an important part of childhood (and adulthood if we are willing to admit it). As parents, it’s so important to teach kids to prioritize play and help them develop healthy ways to get out energy, relieve stress, and enjoy life.
