Keep The Kids Busy All Summer Long With A Summer Fun List Of Things To Do

Summer vacation begins for many kids in the next couple of weeks.  Keep them busy all summer long with a list of fun summer projects and activities.  Make a list that includes fun things for everyone in the family and you can cross them off as you do them this summer! This is something that I have been doing with my kids since my son first started preschool.  We are on year two and I can’t wait for summer vacation to start so we can start the fun.  Even though my oldest was only in school half of the day this year, I can hardly wait to have him home for the summer!  I am going to...

Simple Gift Basket For A First Birthday And Getting Your Kids Excited About Giving

A first birthday is a special occasion and deserves a gift from the heart that is just right for the little one in your life.  I love to make gift baskets to give to anyone – but a first birthday is an especially fun reason to put one together. A combination of homemade shirts, age appropriate board books, and a small toy are the perfect gift for any little one on their first birthday.  Last summer we had a first birthday party for one sweet little guy in our family and I was so excited to make him something special for his big day.  I love to get my own kids involved in the gift...

Easy Homemade Ice Cream Cake

Summer is almost here and the thought of ice cream treats and sweet summer nights are so close I can taste it.  Here is an incredibly tasty “homemade” ice cream cake that is perfect for any occasion.  You won’t believe how simple it is, and neither will anyone you share it with because it is that good. I kind of feel like I can’t even call this a recipe or a homemade ice cream cake.  It is so simple and easy that I totally feel like it is cheating.  Especially when people are eating it and raving about how much they like it, it’s hard not to admit that is...

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you beautiful and loving mothers that are stopping by A Spotted Pony today!  I wanted to share a little story with you about the best part of being a mother and how my children have taught me the most important life lessons.  I hope you enjoy it!
