I know it’s not friday yet, but wanted to share asap! Our family has been having so much fun, I may have to turn Friday into Family Fun Friday on Pepper Scraps. LEGO® KidsFest has invited us to attend their awesome event & they are also going to be giving one lucky reader of PS two free tickets!

Family Fun = Healthy Family

I’ve been sharing a lot of the fun things that our family has been doing together on Pepper Scraps. You may be wondering, “What does this have to do with being healthy?”

Being a healthy family means more than watching what you eat. Being a healthy family is also about doing fun things together and being connected as a family.


LEGO® = Family Fun

LEGO® is a wonderful healthy family tool. Play with LEGO® bricks can be great for:

Playing: Everyone loves to play with Legos. One of the most exciting Christmases we have had was the LEGO® year. The boys got their first sets and everything that Christmas was about LEGO®.

Learning: We actually use LEGO® bricks for preschool for Zarek. Or we use them for Zane for his homework. LEGO® bricks are a great way to teach your kids learning can be fun!

An Awesome Hobby: Helping your children find hobbies they love can help them throughout their lives. When I’ve talked about “Are you really hungry?” in the past one bad habit is eating when you are bored. Hobbies is a great solution to a bad habit.

Hi I'm Pepper. My family and I are sharing pieces of our lives.
We hope to inspire you by showing that even small changes can make the biggest differences in your life. You don't have to go to extremes to become healthy. Just do it one habit, one meal, one walk, and one hug at a time.

Let's work together one piece at a time making better habits, eating healthier, getting moving, and most of all loving our families.
