National Play-doh Day

So, I am going to be very honest here...I am not the biggest fan of play-doh.  With that being said...the boys LOVE it & it does keep them entertained for hours.  When I was looking for a picture to post, I just had to go with this one.  This is what play-doh makes me think of.

While looking at this picture...I notice a great idea by Spincushion.  I love how she thought outside of the box to create such a cute picture {below}!

I am going to swallow my dislike for play-doh & let me kids go crazy.  I suppose that you could make your own as well, but we have enough canisters that I have no intention of going there!

Collect Rocks Day

I don't know about your kiddos, but mine LOVE to collect rocks.  We even have a special place to put our"special" rocks that we collect when we are camping.  Rock collecting isn't exactly the easiest thing to do in our we took a jaunt over to a fun little nature park.

Yum!!  Today is Chocolate Milk Shake Day.

I had every intention of making us some chocolate milk shakes today, but blender didn't survive a fall thanks to a very helpful 4 year old.  So, I will have to just allow my mouth to water while thinking about one.
