That’s right ladies. These dollar store activities for kids are all 100% do-able. I know this because I have carefully combed through all of the dollar store DIY’s and kids activities on Pinterest and cherry picked the best ones based on what I am now calling the Mom
Summer Reality Check List. You see, sometimes (always) us moms get a little carried away and go overboard when we choose our summer bucket list activities. We pick the wrong DIY and end up over reaching & over paying eventually becoming so frustrated we fall into a Mom Fail Summer Coma.
In order to prevent this all too common phenomenon from happening to you please take this advice: Don’t overfill your summer bucket!! Just relax & have fun with your kids doing these super easy-who cares if they mess it up it came from the dollar store activities!!!
