Making Memories EVERY Day {#Free #Activitiesforkids}

One thing I’ve really started focusing on is putting the effort in to making memories. Making the conscious effort to create them EVERY day.

A *Pinterest* Date A Day {Day Seven}

I had to pin this activity myself so it would qualify for this particular feature. lol So, it is now on my Pinterest, but I actually found this fantastic idea from Domestic Charm – who originally found it from Smashed Peas and Carrots {which have both easily been added to my favorites list}. I was on my way to pick my daughter up from school but was determined to try this as soon as we got  home. I am so…
