Lego Storage

Welcome To The Cherry On Top!
Have you found yourself in the Lego Land Of The Lost?  After years of accumulation and periods where the boys wouldn't even dare try to play with Lego because of the disarray they were faced with, I've finally got a solution and it's a CHEAP one!  I scoured the internet for solutions, but they were all way too, expensive or just not right for our situation. 
So, if you have very limited space and a limited budget, but a huge problem, then you've come to the right place.  Check this out!

Summer Boredom Busters

Welcome to The Cherry On Top!
Summer has started.  For some of you, the summer vacation is almost over.  By now your kids might be driving you crazy.  I know mine are!  Hehehehe....  I am dedicating this edition of The Cherry On Top to parents, child carers and sitters.  In this edition you will find all kinds of activities for  kids.  Not just the little ones, but the older ones, too.
I have two young boys with Autism and keeping them constantly busy is a must.  Create a list of things to do when boredom starts to settle in.  Popcorn and a movie, Wii, computer games, yoga, exercise, outdoor play, hopscotch, swimming, Lego, boardgames, story telling, craft, paint....This is a necessity and a huge help to keep things cool around this crazy house.
The first two images are linked up to The Tip Junkie.  I love this site and visit everyday.  Yes, everyday!  There are so many great ideas, tutorials, boredom busters, beauty tips, crafts, pretty much everything The Cherry On Top is all about.…
