More fun with cardboard boxes.

This time, check out these DIY Cardboard Playhouses. I love the addition of shingles and wallpaper (or wrapping paper) for color.

I could have had used this gadget when Savvy Jr. was younger. You know when they fall asleep in the car and their head gets heavy and falls forward? The Slumber Sling stops that from happening. No more worries about a sore neck and shoulders.

It’s a little pricey at $21.99, though. It looks like it could be easy to sew yourself.

This DIY Sand and Rock Box is a great idea. Sandboxes squick me out (cats) and we don’t have room for one, anyway. Maybe I should just make one in a big plastic box.

Great outdoor play potential here.

Savvy Jr’s Easter Basket

Personal Creation’s sent Savvy Jr an Easter basket this year. We tried out the All-In-One Boys Easter Basket, which comes with:

Stuffed bunny
A chocolate bunny in box
Jelly beans
Small chocolate eggs
Mini chocolate bunnies
4 pack of Peeps
Sugared bunnies
And a personalized basket.

While these are all things you can buy yourself in the store, it was convenient to have it all sent to me and ready to go.

I was also pleased with the amount of candy the basket came with. There was so much, I didn’t put it all in the basket, but held some back to put in plastic eggs for his Easter egg hunt.

It was the major thing Savvy Jr–whose real name is Gideon–got this year, and he loved it.

I love this idea. Make an Easter Egg Lunch by putting plastic eggs in an egg carton and filling them with snacks. It couldn’t be simpler.

My son would love this.
