Mariah has a huge list (25 ideas!) of rainy day activities for kids so you can give them lots to do when they’re stuck inside. Check out the round-up today so you don’t have to hear that dreaded phrase, “I’M BORED!” a million times when it’s raining.
Today I’m going to share with you some of our favorite educational apps as well as some that come highly recommended by reviewers. MOST of these apps are free to install but some do charge for expansions. I’ll try to include a good mix of apps for both Android and Apple users and my best guess for the age ranges.
The weather is finally starting to warm up (hallelujah!) and before we know it everyone will be breaking out the shorts and flip flops! Time to start thinking about shaving those legs again and doing something about that chipped toenail polish! 😉 If you’re looking for a fun summer craft to do with you kids, check out these fun ways to dress up flip flops. Turn those plain Jane flips flops into something unique and attention-grabbing!
LDS General Conference is coming up again on April 2nd and 3rd, and I can’t wait! I love General Conference because it’s a time we get to hear from our prophet and church leaders and enjoy a spiritual feast! No matter what I’m struggling with at the time, I always seem to find comfort and answers by listening to the General Conference messages. The conference is broadcast on television and radio and everyone is invited to watch or listen. Even if you aren’t a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, there is so much shared through the music and talks at General Conference that can enlighten and uplift you as a person.

I’ve been looking for fun ways to bring a little more meaning into my family’s Christmas this year. It’s so easy to get caught up in all the presents and shopping, and to forget what we’re really celebrating this time of year!
I plan on looking into those more next year when my little man is a little older and can understand more, but for now Christ-centered Christmas books are going to be my main focus. He loves being read to! Plus, it’s never too early to start teaching your kids about Christ, the nativity story, serving others, and the spirit of Christmas.
Back when I lived at home, we’d watch the classics every year as a family: Miracle on 34th Street, White Christmas, A Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life, etc. So if you’ve been looking for some great family Christmas movies to watch this year, look no further! Here is a list of some awesome movies that will definitely get YOUR family pumped for Christmas and they are all available on Amazon.
Every Thanksgiving I get asked to bring a side dish to Thanksgiving dinner; this is something I am very thankful for! I’m going to let my mom and mother-in-law handle the heavy duty Thanksgiving dinner items for as long as possible. Preparing and cooking a turkey for 20+ people is not a skill I’ve developed yet, but side dishes? Those I can handle.
Fall is one of my favorite times of year. The weather cools down, school starts, candy corn and pumpkin pie become available for my consumption, and the leaves change! Though, with the weather getting colder I’ve found I’m looking for more and more ideas for keeping my little man entertained indoors. This week we’re going to give one of these adorable leaf crafts a try; I think he’ll have a lot of fun. Hopefully, your kids will enjoy them too!
I married into a family that goes camping together on a regular basis. Planning the trips has gotten a little more complicated as we’ve all started popping out kids, but that doesn’t mean that we still don’t always have a great time! I have to say, one of the best things about camping with my in-laws are the AMAZING meals that get whipped up. For some of the meals we use a camping stove but some of the best meals come out of our cast iron dutch ovens!
With the weather getting colder we find ourselves venturing less and less into the outdoors and more and more toward the comfort of our fireplaces. Obviously board games can be whipped out no matter the weather, but in these cold winter months they can provide a family some much needed indoor entertainment and fun! So, I went on a search to find some really highly recommended board games for you to add to your collections this winter. I tried to find some that are less well-known because I know you’ve all got Monopoly and Clue already stashed away.
