Blog Meet Shirley

Hello everyone, I am really excited to be guest posting for Danielle today. I have been following Danielle’s blog for a couple of months now. I really enjoy all of the information that she provides. And love linking up to her fun parties
Danielle and I are also co-hosting together along with 14 other bloggers the Summer Fun Party!
My name is Shirley and I blog at Motivated Mommy of Two. I am a mom to the two most wonderful kids and a wife to the most loving and understanding husband.
I love to write about what motivates me to keep going with my weight loss journey, the awesome times I spend with my family. And of course all of the different projects I like to work around the house.
Keeping up with the summer theme, today I wanted to share with you a fun game I put together for my kids. Since we live in the desert I needed to find ways to keep them entertained inside during the summer months.
I get a family magazine called Family Fun, in there they had a game called Rocket Toss. 

For the materials you need:
  • Six Recycled metal cans
  • You can use paint (white, blue and or red) or strips of red, white, and blue duct tape. I choose to use blue and white paint.
  • Once you have saved all of the of six metal cans, wash them and make sure you do not have any sharp edges.
  • Paint the cans or decorate them with the duct tape. I decided to paint mine since I had blue and white paint.
  • Once they are painted and dried it is play time.
  • I used a regular rubber ball for the kids to use to knock down the cans. They had a blast and Mommy was happy to keep them busy inside the house away from the heat.
I hope you enjoyed this fun summer post, hope to see you guys at Motivated Mommy of Two.


  1. Thank Danielle for having me today, I hope you readers enjoy the fun game.

  2. I love how this is such a simple game but will easily entertain kiddos for hours :)

  3. SO CUTE!! I love this! It's perfect fun and so simple to do! :)

  4. This is a great idea! Easy to make and I know my youngest would love it. This will make for a great winter activity, when we are stuck inside.
