DIY Cats Stuff

Hello!  I hope everyone is doing well!  I am totally ready for cooler weather, I’m getting tired of summer.

So this week is all about cats.  Now, I have two cats, Target and Amelia.  Both are rescues and both are crazy.  Like, their favorite toy is a straw from Chick-fil-a.  They have tons of other toys, yet they want to play with a straw…I will never understand.  But, here are some ideas you can do for your cats!  Some are buildings and some are toys.  So enjoy!

Also, here’s a picture of my pains before you continue reading.

Target is the black and white and Amelia is the calico.  Goofy pictures to show their true personalities.  Enjoy the post!

Fun Summer Ideas To Do With Your Kids

summer fun ideas title

Good morning! Are you enjoying your summer so far? Are you keeping busy, or more importantly, keeping your kids busy? I don’t usually write too much about ideas or activities with kids, but I used this when my kids were young and it was fun and kept them busy.

I started out with some ideas I found from magazines. This was before Pinterest, so you will have a much easier time finding ideas now! I found all different types of kid-friendly ideas, from baking to crafting to playing! I printed out the ideas on individual note cards.

Summer Fun ideas for kids

Some ideas were really simple, like this one and others took a little more time or material. This one would be a great science lesson. The kids can compare the bugs by size, color or shape. If they are older, they can even look up information about the bug.

Summer Fun Ideas Index Cards

I included directions or pictures with the card when there were some. This baking idea actually starts with a pre-baked cake, but you could easily use the baking as part of the idea. I tried to use ideas that had most items I already had in my home. I didn’t want to have to go run out and purchases things just to make it work.

Summer Fun Ideas for kids bake a cake

This is always a fun activity. Any shoe box will do. Kids can take pages from magazines, or photographs, or even stickers to decorate a box. Then they can store all the special memorabilia or crafts they made over the summer.

All kids love to play in the sprinkler! I included some fun games they could play while getting wet!

You can see I had a whole stack of cards. Some days we didn’t need them, but they sure were nice on the days where “I’m bored” was heard. I’m not sure we ever made it through all the ideas, but it was a great way to make some new memories together.

I would love to hear from you if you use this idea or try something similar. How do you keep your kids entertained during the summer? Hope you have a great week!
