I’m thrilled to be partnering with Minute Maid to share a fun craft for kids, and help remind parents like you that you’re doing better than you think at this thing we call parenting. As always, all opinions are your own.
Summer is finally here, and it’s the perfect time to get crafting and making happy memories with your children. A quick Pinterest search for crafting ideas can leave parents feeling overwhelmed. Everything looks so picture perfect, and therefore complicated. Luckily, our kids don’t care if everything is perfect. Real life is far from the airbrushed images we see in magazines and that’s okay. In fact, it’s better than okay!
As a mom, I have felt so inadequate at times. There have been days when I’ve felt like nothing I did was right. The house was a wreck and our craft projects didn’t look anything like the examples found online. But now I realize that it’s the time we spend together that matters the most. Our vacation pictures don’t have to look like they came from a magazine and our art projects don’t have to be perfect. All that matters is that we are having fun.
My new post on the Minute Maid Good Minute blog is for all you moms and dads like me who need a reminder from time-to-time that we are doing better than we think. Grab your craft paints, a few empty Minute Maid juice cartons, and get ready for some fun. This whimsy Minute Maid Juice Carton Village is simple to make and sure to be loads of fun for you and your kids. I hope you’ll go check it out and see how much fun we had making it.
The Good Minute is a place where moms (and dads too!) can go to find kid-friendly recipes, relatable parenting advice and stories, and ideas for seasonal activities the whole family can enjoy. I’m so glad to join Minute Maid on their mission to let parents know they’re doing better than they think. Please join us and let the moms and dads you know they’re #doinggood.
