Budsies Drawing Contest

Juggling With Kids is teaming up with Budsies to host a Summer drawing contest!  Don't know what a Budsie is?  Check out our review of Budsies.

With summer just underway, we wanted to have everyone draw a creature you'd find at the beach.

All you need to do is head over to our facebook page and comment on the post with a picture of your own drawing of a creature you'd find at the beach.

The drawing that gets the most "likes" by the end of the contest period (July 14th) will win a FREE Budsie based on their drawing!

We can't wait to see everyone's entries!

Happy Doodling!

Sorry this contest is for those in the U.S. only.

Mini Lighthouse Craft

Finally it's summer! Here's a simple summer craft to do when your kids when they're bored and claim there is nothing to do.  We got the idea here from Home Spun Threads.

- washi tape or any decorative tape
-blue or red plastic cup
-clear plastic cup 
-battery-operated tea light 


These are super simple to make and the pictures are probably self explanatory.  First I let the girls add the stripes to the bottom of the lighthouse with the decorative tape.  

They used scissors to cut the right length of tape.

My daughter wanted to add some more tape to the top portion of the cup, so she put the smaller cup on top before putting in the battery operated tea light.

Showing off her lighthouse....our neighbor friend took hers home before I could get a picture! :-)

Here's our lighthouse all lit up.  It makes for a cute little night light.
