I am normally on top of my game when it comes to my kids class parties but this year I kept forgetting to sign up and was left with either do get a craft together or a game. I normally bake something fun so I was a little underprepared for coming up with a game. And when I googled “Valentines Day game”, nothing but bingo came up.
So I decided to get my husband to build me a game for the kids that they would love! Plus it’s so easy I am going to show you how to do it! We had most of the supplies at home except the balls and cups so it cost me under $10 to make. If you have to put the plywood, it will cost a little bit more.
First cut a square of plywood. The size depends on how large you want your game. My husband screwed a little stand in the back so they game would stand at an angle. You can even leave it on the floor without the stand if you want to.
Next get red solo cups and screw them into the board with small screws. I did this with an electric screwdriver.
I just screwed them into the shape of a shape on the board. My original thought was to use beanbags but I thought the bags would be so heavy they might knock over the cups so I used ping pong balls and not one fell off.
If your into symetry and precision you can hot glue the cups down first to make sure they are in the shape you want but I didn’t have time for that or know where my glue gun was.
I got some ping pong balls at Target for a couple bucks and that’s it!
If you want to get real fancy, when we got to my kids school, I brought some christmas lights and put them around the cups. All the kids thought that was extra fun but of course that’s optional.
You could even put a number in the bottom of each cup to make the cups worth different amounts when they make a ball in it. I remembered that idea as I was driving 10 minutes late to the party.

I love new baby products that make life as a mom easier and these wearable blanket sleep sacks from minimumu.com are my newest obsession! What I love about these is my 2 year old can wear them! I have used similar sleep sacks when he was younger but they all had the blankets that had no way for their feet to get out. So once he started walking he couldn’t wear them anymore.
But we have have MiniMumu! These have an opening at the bottom so not only are they breathable but practible when your baby starts walking so they can wear them 6 months to 3 years old.
I remember when my kids were little, I would always worry about them getting cold since you shouldn’t have an actual blanket in the crib because they could pull it over their heads. With this blanket, their is an easy snap on one side so it’s easy to get on but won’t get caught covering their faces.
They come in lots of cute colors and I am actually going to give one of these to my friend who is pregnant with their first child.
You can order one now from MiniMumu.com and all orders get free shipping. If you have a child yourself or know someone who is pregnant, this would be a great shower gift.

We have lived in our house for a year and have barely put up any pictures. I am going to start with my kids room and I am getting a canvas print for each of my kids and putting up on their wall. So far I have my middle son Silars done and I got it at Canvasdiscount.com. This is the second time I have used them and have been pleased both times. I got one for my husband for christmas and now I am going to get one for all my kids.
They are high quality and the picture turned out just how I wanted. They offer such great offers that I can afford to buy one for all my kids. When I finish my kids room with all canvas prints I will take a picture and show y’all because I am so excited about it!
Plus you can get a 20×16” canvas for only $9.99 with the voucher code “4MYVALENTINE”!

*I was sent a pair of these boots for my review but all opinions are my own.
When we lived in Louisiana I always was a sucker for warm, comfortable clothes but the problem is even at Christmas it could be 80 degrees! So when we moved to Colorado I was in heaven because I could wear all these warm clothes but the only thing I was lacking was boots! I have been looking for some winter boots for a while now and you have to check out these Lugz boots!
Plus you can save 30% on your Lugz purchase! Use Code SWC30 for 30% off at http://www.lugz.com
They have so many cute styles and I had a hard time choosing which ones to get but since we have had snow since Halloween, I went with these called the Mahala. They come in a few colors but I went with the grey and just love them!
These are so comfortable it’s like I am wearing slippers! Believe me, I will be living in these.
