Risky Pins: Thinking About Summer

Well, I’m so pleased with myself.  I managed to do one of the things I posted on my first Risky Pins post – visit the Cincinnati Nature Center!  There are always so many awesome ideas on Pinterest … if only we could pin a few more hours onto each day!  I’m hoping to do a lot of these things over the long, lazy days of summer.

Pinned anything risky lately?  Add a link in the comments to your pin!  And be sure to follow us on Pinterest – we’re theriskykids.  The more the merrier (and riskier!)

This post on how to put together a “tinkerer’s toolbox” for kids is awesome.  I plan to put together a kit like this and set up a table in the garage so that the kids can tinker away this summer.  I can’t wait to see what they come up with!

The kids are loving this book our friend, Lisa (of slackline fame – isn’t she the bomb?!), gifted us: Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction: Build Implements of Spitball Warfare.  I’m still finding pennies everywhere from the penny shooter.  Our goal is to build something with enough range to battle the bunnies that terrorize our garden.

How about some LEGO balloon car races?
