We have big hopes for all the things that can happen in a year, don't we? So big, in fact, that it's easy to feel overwhelmed. This blog is about keeping things simple and fun, sharing tools for getting stuff done, and learning how to balance it all...calmly. Because you know what? Life doesn't have to be crazy to count.

Check out the categories below for ideas and inspiration. We're focusing on a different one each month!

Kids Activity / Duct Tape Castle Tutorial

Oh, lordy, would you look at this? It’s an Interlocking Cardboard Castle made with cardboard and duct tape! I love projects like this that don’t cost a lot but can keep kids busy for an entire day…or even longer if you’re lucky.

This project was created by Merrilee of the blog mermag. Merrilee and her kids made a castle, but you could customize the project to fit your child’s interests. A museum, or a zoo, or Hogwarts, or outer space, or a little town with a flower shop, a corner cafe, a patisserie, a bookstore (okay, that last one might be for me). You could make it as big or as small as you’d like. And when the kids (or you) are done playing with it, wouldn’t it look nice sitting on a table or shelf?

You’ll find Marilee’s step-by-step tutorial and free templates here.
