Avery & Austin: the #perfectplaydate

Being a mom and teaching full time is a lot of work.  Add blogging, creating, and managing multiple social media platforms and you wonder when you will find time to sleep!  Yet, the thought of giving up any of it would be letting go of something I really love or enjoy so what's a girl to do?  Then I found it.  A way to get some work done and give my kids some quality fun time together!
Avery & Austin is a monthly subscription box and it has totally rocked my world!  Each month, the box arrives at our door with two complete craft kits and snacks for two kids, plus a host gift for me!  (Wait, I get a present, too?! Yes, please!)

This month, I was struggling to find time to get my report cards done in time for conferences.  I tried working on them once the girls went to bed but by that time I was just too tired.  So one afternoon, I pulled out our Avery & Austin box and viola!  I had over an hour of nearly uninterrupted time to work and the girls got to do what they love (create!).  The best part, I didn't have to come up with the craft or gather the supplies.  It's all there!

This month's box included THREE different crafts!  My girls love to paint and I don't let them do it at home nearly enough.  So the camera craft from Woodshop Wizards was perfect!

Look at that concentration!

The other two crafts were perfect for Thanksgiving.  A frame and photo prop for our Thanksgiving decor!


I can't wait for next month's box!  It will be great to have something for the girls to do during Winter Break!

Want to get in on the action?!  Sign up for a subscription by December 1st to receive the Winter Wonderland box!  You can get 50% off your first box by visiting the Avery & Austin website here!

  1. Awesome! I love that they wrote what they were grateful for. So cute! I just left the classroom this past year and can totally relate to finding the time...especially to do something like this. :)
