I’m no Martha Stewart but I try to get creative. I aspire to “mom” like my sister who is always up to something fun with the kids. Whether it be an outing, adventure or trying a new cuisine. Heck, even I’M excited when I go visit her. You never know what your gonna do!
The Easter Bunny found this “Jar of Happy” at Marshall’s in the sale bin for like $2. When opened, it was full of popsicle sticks. Blank popsicle sticks. So I took each stick and I wrote something fun to do. Preferably free and doesn’t require reservations or migraine to plan.
The other day we pulled, “Go To Beach.” Don’t mind if I do! We basically live on the water now and I always have beach stuff in my car. Picked up B from school and off to the beach we went.
Last night we picked, “Go To Aquarium.” This one is happening this weekend since it can’t be done at the drop of a hat. B is excited and I’m actually looking forward to it too. Silver lining? I can use this “Jar of Happy” as a bargaining chip too. Now little dude knows if he doesn’t listen or misbehaves, no Aquarium.
Give me some adventure ideas! What are some ways you get creative and have fun with your kids? Your spouse?
