• Project: Have Fun with it Friday: End of school Year Tradition {Good-bye 1st Grade, Hello 2nd Grade! Hello Preschool!}
Hayden had just completed 1st grade and Morgan will be doing another year of preschool (so hers just said “Hello Preschool”). It was a cute thing for the girls to wake up to on their last day of school to find these cute popsicle sticks in their breakfast!!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
• Time: 5 minutes
• Would I do it again? yes! the smile on the girls faces was priceless…sometimes it’s the little things that they remember 🙂
• What I would do differently: Wish I would have started this when Hayden was in Preschool!
• Items used: Card Stock, Popsicle sticks, and adorable printable from: Crayon Wishes and Popsicle Dreams

• Project: Have Fun with it Friday: Creating an outdoor Sunflower Fort! Thanks to my wonderful friend Megan for this tip on my “Recommend a Pin” page I definitely wanted to give it a try with the girls. If it works out I can definitely see them playing in it when the weather is nice (not right now!)
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): really it was super easy to do, now for the hard part- growing anything in AZ in the summer time!!
• Time: 20 minutes
• Would I do it again? well I might have to if this first plant doesn’t work out
• What I would do differently: plant when it’s not crazy hot and make sure there’s good enough soil
• Items used: sunflower seeds, love, and the adorable idea from: http://letslassothemoon.com/2011/08/28/sunflower-house/
