School is out but workboxes are still IN!

Workboxes have just felt great for us as a family. The kids enjoy it, I enjoy it and even my dh has gotten in on the action. We will definately go on with them next year.

But it is summer and I have these workboxes in my kitchen/dining area. What to do? Use them of course!

Throughout the day I am sure you have heard your kids say "I'm bored!" My answer is "go grab a box!" Now I won't use the strips, or make them go in order, it will just be a fun area to see some activites they can do throughout the day. Maybe a can of playdoh, or a dot-to-dot. Simple activites that they can do on their own.

I will most likely rotate them out just as I would during the year to provide some interesting and fun things to do.

So have fun with your workboxes today!

Our newest family addiction!

UNO!!!

We have played the kid version for months now but a few weeks ago, we decided to bump it up a notch and try the regular adult one. Well, it is a hit and the kids are hooked! Today we were playing with a bunch of friends and Luke just struck me as funny.

He was just perched up on the table at work and having the best time! You better watch out too, he is quick to call UNO on you! Come on over and play soon!
