Host a Children's Book Themed Baby Shower

I love to throw a good themed party! Although I love hosting parties for my kids and their friends, one of my favorite things to celebrate is the birth of new little babies! I think that each baby that is born deserves a celebration... whether it is a parent's first baby or third!

I love children's books and so does one of my favorite friends! When her first daughter was about to arrive, I teamed up with a few friends to throw her a children's book themed baby shower.

Today I'm going to share how we put together this simple children's book themed baby shower!

Tips to Plan an Awesome Summer with your Family!

Are you a planner during the summer? Or do you prefer to fly by the seat of your pants?

I love to create a simple framework for our planning and then try and see how flexible we can be within that framework! With four kids (ages 3-11) and a lot of interests and opinions, one thing that is really important is to plan together!

How we host a summer planning meeting:

Have you ever involved your kids with your summer planning? I used to be able to plan everything and everyone would follow along... but now with older kids, I've learned that it is really important in our family for everyone to be part of the discussion. 

For us, our summer planning meeting needs to be 1) short, 2) visual, and 3) encourage participation!

DIY Kid-Made First Aid Kit

Summer means heading outside to play, climbing, riding scooters, falling down and getting scrapes and bruises! Sometimes I feel like I am a professional band-aider!

To help get us get organized for the summer and our outdoor adventures, we made some Kid-Made First Aid Kits over the weekend! 

These kits are perfect for kids to put in their backpacks for camp or to throw in your purse and take to the pool (since band-aids are essential there too when kids stub their toes or scrape their feet on the bottom of the pool)!
