5 Fall activities for kids

The weather is getting colder, which means us moms can't use the outdoors to entertain our kids as much as we would like. When my kids are stuck inside,  they tend to get very grumpy.  I can't stand when they get grumpy and whiny so I try to make a game plan to avoid it. Here is a list of some fun fall activities that I found from other bloggers. 

1. Fall paper plate wreath: Mum in the Mad House posted this idea.  Click the picture to get instructions on how to do this fun craft!
My kids always love decorating,  so I think they will really love to make their own fall decor! I will do this one with my kids,  and maybe add some Halloween elements to ours.

2. Spooky Halloween trees: I found this idea on Pinterest.  The blog Buggy and Buddy was the one who posted it. Their picture will look you to the instructions on their site!
This activity looks so fun to me. I might actually try it for myself! I think my older child will really enjoy this activity. 

3. Leaf people fall crafts: Hands on as we grow is where I found this fun idea!
Find some colorful leaves,  go to the flat store for some eyeballs and make little leaf people! This could be a whole day's worth of entertainment!

4. Leaf Hunt: this idea came from This Little Home Of Mine. The picture is theirs. If you click on it,  it will take you to their blog!
This goes along with #3. Do the leaf hunt and an activity,  and save the leaves for the leaf people!

5. Magic Pumpkin: I found this idea on Playdough to Plato's blog. I also borrowed their picture.
Kids love candy,  and I love science so this is a good combination. I think it's fun to watch the colors spread out.

I hope this gives you at least a few ideas to entertain your kids when it gets chilly outside! Be sure to follow these fellow bloggers to take advantage of all their fun ideas!

How I saved hundreds of dollars for Christmas.

Christmas is an expensive time of year for most.  For my family,  we set a strict budget for Christmas and try not to go over.  This year though is the first year I came out under budget!  We set a $900 budget for all Christmas gift purchases. Since I don't work and my husband has had a kind of crappy sales year, we needed to have a strict budget to not overextend ourselves. 
For a few years, I've been using some money making apps to earn a little extra cash for Christmas and birthday gifts. This year it's really paid off!  I was able to use $150 from these apps to put toward Christmas! Using rewards from stores has saved me a good chunk of cash as well!
Want to know exactly how I saved so much money?
Kohls: I love taking advantage of Kohl's because they have great deals,  and they give you kohls cash for purchases you make.  This year I did some shopping at Kohl's and ended up with $55 in Kohl's cash. So I was able to use that toward a few gifts for my extend…

How to Find Success in Life

Success is something everyone wants, but we might define it differently. A lot of people associate success with having lots of money or having a fancy job title. 
I think success can be a lot of different things. You can have success in relationships,  or creating that family you always wanted,  maybe it's being a successful athlete,  or getting that master or doctorates degree you have been working so hard to get. I think success can be anything you want that involves you to work hard to get. 
There are some things you can do to help you live the successful life you want.

My Favorite Finds of 2018

2018 is coming to a close. I cannot believe how fast this year has gone by.  2018 brought many fun things to my life.  For 2018 I made a goal to get out of my comfort zone,  to be a better parent, and to find more hobbies that interest me.  I did a pretty good job with all of these parts of my life. I started this blog which is really out of my comfort zone.  I've also been able to make a few new friends which are a miracle for me.   I worked on how I talk to my kids.  Apologizing to them more often when I do something wrong,  and making sure I tell them I love them as often as I can.  And as for the new hobbies, I've started a few.  I count my blog as a hobby since it's not really a money maker right now,  and I love writing for it.  
I've found a bunch of things that have improved my life in some way or another and I want to share them with you.  Maybe you might find something new you haven't tried or something that can improve your life in 2019!
