Out of Office by FedEx Delivers Fun Projects for Families, Home, and Office!

Spring is under way and in most homes Spring Cleaning and organizing are also in full swing. Whether you've started out with hot-spots or whole house cleaning- "spring" is definitely in the air.

I've started reorganizing the kids room and the play room, making adjustments to our budget, and even started planning for summer. Since school gets out in just a few more days, I've been trying to put together another fun summer, packed with lesson plans for the kids to enjoy at home. The only thing I'm finding trouble with is arts and crafts.. ok, I should reword that- arts and crafts we haven't already done.

Thanks to Mom Central, I was introduced to the FedEx Office blog, Out of Office a few weeks ago. The different tips and projects they post is really motivating and guarentees to get your creative juices flowing. I've found ideas for baby showers, Father's Day gifts and DIY projects that the kids and I can do together, like making your own personalized bookmarks. We've made bookmarks in the past, but the kids sweaty little hands usually ruin their projects after the first book they read. The FedEx Out of Office blog suggests getting the bookmarks laminated at their store; I had no idea they HAD lamination at their store, so now I'm even more excited about our upcoming summer projects. 
Every summer, I have the kids make a personalized photo frame. They pick a dollar wooden picture frame from an art store, then we go home and paint it whatever color they want. Then we add foam stickers, letters, feathers, glitter- anything fun or interesting- and I snap a picture of them to specifically put into their frames. The whole project usually takes about three days, (because we wait for paint to dry; take the pic, upload it, then pick it up; and then decorate it). The kids love making this frame, and look forward to it every year.

Whether you're looking for project ideas or tips for around the house, in the office, or on the go, definitely stop at the Out of Office blog to see what kinds of ideas they have for you.
