Fun Fall Bounty Paper Towel Tube Kids Crafts #TryThisAtLowes + $100 Lowes Gift Card Giveaway

I am going to be real here. My house isn't always spotless. I know. GASP!

Sometimes, the mess honestly makes my head spin! But most of the time, I'm OK with it. My kids are busy growing, learning and making memories. They are happy. So, it's all good. I just make sure to keep plenty of Bounty Basic paper towels and an arsenal of my favorite cleaning supplies from Lowes on hand, to clean it all up after they've been tucked into bed at night!

Once everything has been scrubbed clean and put away, I love to up-cycle/incorporate all of the empty paper towel tubes into fun craft projects for the kids. 

We  made a few fun messes recently while creating these {adorable} Fall  Paper Towel Tube Kids Crafts:

Inside Out : Get Ready To Meet The Little Voices Inside Your Head - Coming Soon From Disney Pixar

Pixar is making movie magic yet again, and we seriously can't wait!

Disney Pixar is putting a face to our emotions in a way that only they can. All of the feelings that we have each experienced (joy, fear, anger, disgust, and sadness) are being brought to life in character form, in Pixar's 15th feature length film; Inside Out.

How To Use LEGO Bricks As A Creative Learning Tool For Kids


LEGO is BIG in our home, folks. I MEAN ... BIG!

Our son is totally on-board and passionate about all things LEGO. So much so, that I am currently attempting to construct a cake topper out of LEGO Bricks, for his upcoming Birthday. Wish me luck you guys. I thought it would be simple. HA!

I can certainly say that I have a new-found respect for all of the intricate details that our son builds into his creations.   In my attempted construction of the aforementioned cake topper, I've discovered that it's far more difficult than it looks!

While building and creating is certainly a blast, we've discovered that learning with LEGO can be tons of fun too!  

Grab a box of LEGO bricks,  plus a few simple supplies from around the house, and try these fun Spelling, Math, and Science LEGO learning activities with the kids:

Upcycled Soda Bottle Duck Tape Witch Windsock { + a Super Simple Duck Tape Ghost Windsock!}

We had a bit of a celebration to usher in the new Football season last weekend. Food, Food, family time and more FOOD! We all piled on the sofa for some Giants Football viewing to kick off the new season and we had a blast!

After it was over we had a few empty Pepsi and Dr. Pepper bottles that I decided to upcycle into some cute Halloween craft projects for the kids. We made this Witch Windsock with an upcycled soda bottle, a Bounty paper towel, Duck Tape and a few other simple supplies (that you most likely already have around the house). We also made a super simple upcycled ghost windsock (perfect Halloween project for the younger kiddo's).
