For the Kids Friday #73

Welcome to the party!!!
I'm spending the last few days in the US at Great Wolf Lodge in Wisconsin Dells.  We LOVE it here!  I'm posting and running right now, but I will update later tonight with some awesome features from last week's party.

2)  Grab my For the Kids Fridays Button and place it somewhere on your blog.  Be sure to link back to me!

3)  Link up as many KID-RELATED activities, games, recipes, parties, gifts, clothing you've created, crafts, traditions, lessons, and so on... that you would like to share.  Please add a different link each week.  They can be old or new... this is just a place to share ideas for our kids to enjoy.  Bonus points to those that serve some educational purpose too!  Link must be to the specific post, and not your general blog page.  Please don't link to your store.

For the Kids Friday #72

Welcome to the party!!!
We have one more week in the USA, then we are off to Canada to visit our family there for a couple weeks before heading back to China.  My hubby will be joining us again this weekend, after 4 weeks apart.  I am SO looking forward to seeing him (as are the kids)!  I have been doing lots of fun, crafty things, but not anything I feel is quite blog-worthy.  I hope to have some more fun things to share with you soon!

Until then, LOVING what you are sharing!!!   Thanks so much for being here each week!  Last week was yet another party that was SO HARD to narrow down to a few favorites.  I can't wait to see what more you have to share this week!

 Check out my favorites from last week.

For the Kids Friday #71

Welcome to the party!!!
We are already half-way through our summer vacation.  I feel like a taxi driver, shuttling kids from camp, to swim lessons, to summer activities, and on, and on, and on.  I've been in a house with no less than six kids at any given time.  Oh my gosh, am I ready for a VACATION!  haha!

So what have YOU been doing?  I can't wait to see what you have to share at this week's party!

 Check out my favorites from last week.

38 Uses for Tin Boxes

I LOVE Pinterest!  I have found a handful of amazing ideas using recycled (or upcycled) Altoid tin boxes over this past year, and I am so excited to try some of them.  Check out all of these awesome ideas!  Some are simple, some are super crafty, some are incredibly brilliant.  I can't wait to try some of these!  Which do you love?
