The boys both have birthday parties to attend this week. I have been putting off shopping for presents because I just hate going to the toy store and wandering the isles hoping that something will jump out at us that does not cost a fortune and that the child will like and that they do not already have. My favorite gifts are handmade, but handmade birthday gifts for 9 year old boys are not the easiest to come up with. Then I remembered my handmade gifts for kids board on Pinterest. I knew there wasn't much in their and I was not too hopeful that there was anything "boy" in there and then I saw the pins for fort kits. That was it! I showed Micah the links and he liked the idea so we headed out to the thrift store and Dollar tree for the supplies.
