April showers bring May Sun-catchers!

This spring I am very excited to do some fun arts and crafts with my kids. We love to have things to decorate the house, and after a bland and boring winter I am ready to spruce up my life with some color and some fun.

I found this fun sun-catcher craft that is perfect for April, after all, “April showers bring may flowers!” I am looking to brighten up my world and this craft will definitely help with that!

Thank you Vanessa at Pre-K Pages for an awesome spring craft idea. Pre-K Pages has some really incredible activities and crafts for kids that are home schooled or little ones that aren’t in preschool yet. So be sure to check them out when you head over there to see the tutorial.

We even have a rainy day this week that will keep my kiddos indoors, and this fun craft is the perfect indoor activity to keep us busy. Here’s hoping our raindrops bring beautiful flowers!

Easy Meals: One Pot Chili Mac

Baseball season has me running here, there, and everywhere. We are at practice 3 days a week with two games weekly. I try not to pickup fastfood, but I will admit that at least one game a week we run out to get food since the game lasts from 4-7pm including warm ups. This leaves me scheduling my meals for the week. I make sure to have meals prepped on practice days so that when we come home we can just warm and eat. I usually pick foods that still taste good when they are reheated. Or that can sit in the crock-pot or instant pot.

This week I am excited to try this twist on chili. Everyone in my family loves Mac N Cheese, and everyone loves Chili. So, why not combine the two? Thank you to BellyFull for this fun and simple recipe. Bonus points for making it in a dutch oven because I can adapt it to cook in the instant pot. In order to cook it in the instant pot I just made sure to brown the meat before I placed the ingredients in the Instant Pot.

I am sure this will become a hit with my family since it is so simple to create and enjoy. Thank you to BellyFull for the idea. Be sure to head over to BellyFull for the full tutorial, and to see their other great recipes!
