17 Must Have Back to School Supplies

| By Layne Quintanilla | Boyish Charm Comments

It's hard to believe it's time for back to school shopping already! I really love this time of year -- I'm a sucker for school supplies in all shapes and sizes! One thing I don't love though is dealing with the crowds at the store. I'd much rather buy online in the ease of my own home! Here is a tried and true list of items your kids are sure to need for back to school.

A Teddy Bear Picnic Joint Boy & Girl Birthday Party

| By Stephanie Keeping | Party Central Comments

Teddy bears and a playful picnic atmosphere combine in such a delightful way for this teddy bear picnic joint boy and girl birthday party styled by Catherine, of Smart Party Planning.  Planned as a joint 2nd birthday party for kids from a mother’s group, it was a perfect theme for including boys and girls. Imagine the cuteness of six small children sprawled out on a picnic rug, snuggling their cute teddy bears brought with them from home! Almost as cute are the red, white and yellow decorations, treats and thoughtful party favors.

Kid's Project Ideas: Sam's Outdoor Chalkboard

| By Stephanie Keeping | Party Crafts and DIY Comments

Sam loves to play outside and I’m glad to have him in the fresh air and getting a little sunshine.  Of course summertime activities often include some sort of water play but kids can’t be in the water nonstop (ever hear of the superhero, Prune Boy?). When I saw this great outdoor chalkboard idea from Project Denneler I knew I wanted to make it for Sam. OK, I actually wanted Mike to make it for Sam but then I agreed it would really be a wonderful family project. It truly is an easy DIY. The most difficult part would be trying to heft a large sheet of plywood by yourself. Thankfully I didn’t have to.

Kid’s Project Idea: Tulip Painting

| By Stephanie Keeping | Party Crafts and DIY Comments

I LOVE flowers…the colors, the scents. I love picking them, giving them, and especially receiving them from my guys.  So of course when I saw this cute flower art project from Blog Me Mom, it caught my attention. Most older boys are less than excited about painting flowers but I figure it’s never too early to teach a little guy how much girls like them; it’s one of those necessary life lessons! Besides, when an art project is simple enough for a toddler to produce such cute results, that’s a win in my book!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cutter® Insect Repellents.

For as long as I can remember, mosquitoes have loved me. The feeling is definitely not mutual. Mike often jokes that no one needs to worry about mosquitoes when they're with me -- because they all naturally go to me! I don't know what it is but something about me screams "Come! Have a bite!" To make matters worse, I get terrible bites that swell and itch.
