Just for fun, I thought I’d share my ten most popular posts from 2013. These are the top ten in terms of views in 2013, but not all of them were published in 2013.
#10. The Stinky Sandal Solution. I’m comforted to know that my children are not the only ones with incredibly stinky sandals! Judging by the number of you who viewed and pinned this post, there are lots of stinky kid feet out there.
#9. How to Make Duct Tape Wallets. This was one of my favorites too! Aidan is still using his duct tape wallet.
#8. Splash Bomb Catapults. This catapult was very popular – possibly because of its simple design. The only supplies needed are pre-cut dowel rods, rubber bands, hot glue, and a juice bottle cap.
#7. Paper Plate Marble Track. Make a marble run out of the rims of paper plates. I posted this one in 2012, but it has been pinned over 40,000 and continues to receive regular views!
#6. A Guide to Cleaning Tasks for Kids – Organized by Room and Age. Apparently, we are also not the only ones who struggle with chores!
#5. Dealing with Sibling Fighting and Rudeness. Boy do we ever deal with this… thankfully the book of Proverbs has wise words for moms and kids!
#4. How to do a Boy’s Haircut with Clippers. The videos in this post are bad, bad, bad. In fact, re-doing the video is on my current to-do list! However, this post had enough views this year to put it in the #4 spot! We have saved a TON by cutting hair at home – I highly recommend it!
#3. 20+ Unplugged Ideas for Keeping Tween Boys Busy (ages 9ish to 12ish). Not hard to figure out why this was a popular post! This can be a challenging age group…
#2. Ten Ways for Kids to Burn Off Energy (Without Tearing Down the House) We are on a constant quest for these types of activities… I can see a part 2 to this happening in 2014!
#1. In the top position by far, far, far – Build a Chain Reaction with Craft Sticks. This is so fun to do, and if you missed it when I originally posted in May, you must check out the video in the post! This post went so much farther than I ever imagined – pinned 96,000 times and viewed more than 225,000. Crazy!
Thank you all for reading Frugal Fun for Boys this year. Happy New Year! Best wishes to all of you in 2014!
