Summer is great. The weather is warmer, the days are longer, and the kids are out of school. Uh-oh. The kids are out of school and the days are longer, which means you have to keep those kids busy without breaking the bank, right?
Have no fear! Here are some tips and tricks to help make that summer transition smooth, whether it’s playing out in the yard or taking a road trip, and most can be done for less than $5!
Fatherhood is no joke but, in order to survive it, you do have to keep a sense of humor. And dads, God love ’em, are normally known for their corny sense of humor.
But these guys here? They don’t mess around and sugarcoat things. They’re hilariously honest about being a dad, and thank goodness, they tweet it out.
If you ask me, they’re all vying for “Dad of the Year.”
If you’re a parent, you know that when you take your kids to a restaurant, they’re often given crayons and a kid’s menu to keep them busy. But what happens when you leave and the crayons are just left on the table?
One dad, Bryan Ware, was told by a restaurant employee that, “. . . every crayon put out on the table had to be thrown away after the table’s customers left — whether it’d been used down to a nub or left completely untouched.”
Finding that completely unacceptable, Ware created The Crayon Initiative, a nonprofit organization that turns old crayons into new ones and donates them to children's hospitals.
