In honor of Earth Day this week, we wanted to post some ways we are taking action to help take care of our earth.

Just wanted to share a few ways we have chosen to restore. I love restoring old things into new. Furniture especially! And of course! This helps our environment!!

There have been a few toys that we decided to restore- to keep them fresh for the boys.

One toy was those big plastic cars the kiddos can ride in. Dylan had his since he was one. Taylor got a new one last year, and the boys fought over the new one. So I made his new with some paint. It became the "race car"! Now, they have their own special cars!

This other toy had sentimental value. It was Joel's when he was a little boy. He refurbished it into new. Our boys LOVE to play with this tractor- no new tractor could have been loved better!

Is there anything you have in your home that you dont neccesarily need to replace- but maybe can make it new again? A table, a toy, a Its amazing how much you'll love it more the second time around!

I wanted to paint our boy's second hand car too but have seen that painted ones start peeling off... what can you use so that doesn't happen?

great ideas!
