Hawaiian Paper Lei Kids Craft | CatchMyParty.com

Now that we're getting into late summer, your kids have probably watched a fair amount of Netflix. My daughter's actually getting bored of it... what?! :)

So I wanted to bring you this Hawaiian paper lei kid craft to keep your kids engrossed long enough for you to do the laundry and maybe even catch your own favorite Netflix show. What makes this my favorite craft is that it's entertaining for older kids (especially if they're doing the paper punching), simple for the youngsters, there's no big mess to clean up at the end, the supplies are inexpensive, and everyone gets something pretty to wear when done. Told you it was a good one!

Red, White & Blue Pretzel Rods

Red, white, and blue pretzel rods, a perfect treat for your July 4th parties! | CatchMyParty.com

When I think of July 4th, I think about being a kid and heading to the Jersey Shore with my family. I grew up in NJ but we didn't go "down the shore" often, maybe once a summer. It was special.

I loved the Jersey Shore, it felt so alive. It wasn't snooty, like other east coast beaches. It was tacky, with lots of people with bad hair and bad accents, and yes, I was one of them. (But I only discovered that years later when I moved away.)

It rained last night. No, it poured, and I was delighted. I went outside to smell the smells and soak it all in. I didn't care how wet I got.

I'm on vacation in the mountains of North Carolina. We're visiting my family who live in the middle of the woods.
