Three FUN Things To Do In Las Vegas With Kids

I never thought Las Vegas would be a place for kids. Las Vegas always seemed as a place for adults to gamble stage shows, and have a bachelor/bachelorette party that they won’t remember.

Vegas may be well-known for those things but over the years it has become more of a tourist destination for all ages and with a growing focus on families.

 I wanted to share three fun things to do in Las Vegas with kids and offer special discounts for our readers to these attractions!

20+ String Art Signs

String art signs are a rising trend that adds a fun pop of color in the home. My girls are so excited to start their first string art project this weekend. So far, the hardest part was choosing which designs they would do. Hopefully they will be fairly easy designs to do for beginners. We can’t wait to share the finished product in a tutorial, soon!

Meanwhile, check out these 20+ fun string art signs.

25 Wood Signs That Will Add Rustic Charm To Your Home

It comes to no surprise that rustic wood signs are the hottest home decor trend. They are so many options when it comes to decorating with wood signs and they are easy to make too. Wood signs are a great way to show your unique style and add rustic charm to your home.

There are several wood signs throughout my home. I think that it adds a touch of personal flair, and they can easily be changed out for redecorating.

I purchased my first elaborate wood sign on Esty but I started to make my own (beginner level) just a few months ago. The materials that I use are recycled or free. I get paint from my local hazardous waste recycling center (check your local HWRC to see if they offer free paint). Old fence board, pallets, and wood scrapes work perfectly for my wood sign projects.

I put a little collection together of wood sign ideas that I hope will inspire you on this charming new trend.

Do you remember Zoobooks as a kid? I do.

I came across Zoobooks about a month ago and couldn’t believe what my family had been missing. Zoobooks expanded their titles. There are Zoobooks, Zoobies, and Zootles  for ages 0-3, ages 3-6, and ages 6-12. There is also a brand new fourth title that the publishers of Zoobooks recently released called, Zoodinos for ages 5 and up. What kid doesn’t love dinosaurs?

I thought I would give a little review of each title so you can see what all the excitement is about. My review will be completely honest and as a mother of two girls. I am also going to let my daughters (toddler/school age) let you know what they thought of each of the four titles as well.

As parents, we try to make sure that our children have enough educational materials to help make them successful. I think the hardest part in doing that is trying to find materials that are both educational and fun. Let’s face it. If it’s not fun then your child is not going to want anything to do with it. Am I right?

MY BIGGEST LEAP OF FAITH: BECOMING A STAY-AT-HOME MOM

This post contains affiliate links. Please see our disclosure for more details.

I never thought I would be a stay-at-home mom.

I grew up with two working parents; one of whom worked in the home as a daycare provider and the other outside of the home. As I grew up I learned that it would be next to impossible to have a family on one income. As much as I loved the thought of being a SAHM I didn’t think it would be possible. Let’s face it. If your family wants to be comfortable in life then both parents must work, right?

Most children know that they will be receiving gifts as birthdays and holidays come around. They are quick to build their wish lists in hopes of getting the latest and greatest toy on the market. Parents tend to not disappoint their children. Why? Because they do not want their child to be the only one to not to have the toy that all the other kids have.
