Weekly Tip – DIY Cleaning

Weekly Tip – DIY Cleaning

We’ve all seen the Pinterest posts about all the savings from natural diy cleaning products.  Create your own air freshener to not only save on harmful chemicals in your home but money in your pocket. Air fresheners sold in the store can be as expensive as $4 a bottle.  If you purchase just one bottle a month you’d be spending $48 on air freshener alone.  Imagine a whole arsenal of natural cleaning products you can make at home will save you.  My absolutely favorite cleaning products are vinegar and baking soda.

National Aviation Day Crafts & Printables

National Aviation Day Crafts & Printables

Today is National Aviation Day!  Celebrate with your budding Aviator with the following free crafts and printables.  Aviation Day is observed in the United States on August 19 each year to celebrate the history and development of  aviation. It coincides with the birthday of Orville Wright who, together with his brother Wilbur, made significant contributions to powered flight.

In 1939 President Franklin Roosevelt proclaimed August 19th to be National Aviation Day. Orville Wright and his brother Wilbur are given credit for building the world’s first successful airplane with aircraft controls that enabled them to steer the plane. Orville Wright made the first flight for 12 seconds and 120 feet around the site of Wright Brothers National Memorial on December 17, 1903. They were not the first to build and fly experimental aircraft but they are the first to invent aircraft controls that made fixed wing flight possible.

Happy Birthday Mr. Wright now lets celebrate!

Advent Calendar DIY

Advent Calendar DIY

This year I decided to do something a little different with my gang.  This year we’re doing an Advent Calendar.  I think it will help us focus more on the true meaning of Christmas and the holiday season.  This year we’ll read more stories, make smores by the fireplace, have hot cocoa almost every night and just enjoy the simple things.  

To start I found this cute printable advent calendar for them.  I’ve included little treats, bible sayings, words of encouragement, and other little treats.  I printed the advent calendar from Yellowblissroad.
