Welcome to Frugal Fun For Boys and Girls!

My name is Sarah Dees. I am wife to my wonderful husband Jordan, and mom to four very active boys and one little girl! Our sons are Aidan (born July 2003), Gresham (October 2006), Owen (May 2009), and Jonathan (January 2012). Our little girl Janie was born in April 2014, so I am no longer a mom to only boys, although our house is still very boy-heavy! We are homeschooling and loving it so far. My days are filled with school, feeding everyone, cleaning up messes, and folding lots of laundry.

I started this blog with the name Frugal Fun for Boys in 2010, and recently renamed it to reflect that we now have a girl in our family too. The name of this site has never been intended to exclude girls – of course girls will enjoy these activities too. Janie happens to be a really girly girl, so we might be posting some girly crafts now too!

Here are the things you can find on our site:

We love to share LEGO ideas and activities, and many of them include building instructions.

You can also find many STEM ideas (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) that are perfect for a classroom or just an afternoon boredom buster.

Since we homeschool, you can also find plenty of learning activities.

We are a Christian family, and I have posts on Biblical Boyhood as well as encouraging and useful posts for moms.

Thanks for stopping by!
