My many roles go beyond mom they also include, preschool teacher, Children's church teacher, youth pastor, wife, and one role I love Christ follower.

Oh me, oh my, this is a must-have book for any mom who loves to do crafts and projects! It truly is the perfect book to have for summer vacation, especially when your kid says, "I'm bored!" This book has 60 different ideas in it to keep your kids entertained and learning. Along with each creation or deed, there are scriptures that correlate with the project! It is a book that is so unique and that is why I really think you and your kids need it!
Some projects you will need supplies while others you probably already have lying around your house. The kids will be so thankful everytime you pull the book out to pick something new to do.
There were a few things that I have done already but my kids won't complain when we do them again. There are some activities that you can do in the house which is perfect for any rainy summer days. Many are also outdoor activities!
I think this book is great for your school-aged kids and would be a great addition to an Easter basket or birthday present... or maybe even the first day of summer vacation!
I like that each project has great directions and pictures... I'm a visual learner so that is always important to me. :)
Thank you, Zondervan for sending me this book for free in exchange for an honest review. I wasn't paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% my own.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
