IMG_2096

Mothers do so much for all of us all year round, so in honor of Mother's Day, I'm doing my first giveaway! Be sure to read to the bottom of the post to see how to enter. Last year I had the girls make their grandmas some adorable little button magnets and a cute little Mother's Day survey, which would still make an awesome gift for any mother or grandma. However, this year I found a quote that really must be added to the project, "Mothers are like buttons, they hold everything together". Where was this quote last year????

Last year around this time I wrote an article on how to teach children about the last supper. I didn't want to do the exact same thing as I did last year, so I tweaked the activity a bit. My 4 year old actually came up with a big part of the idea...to use Easter eggs in the craft! So, I highly … [Continue reading]

A Creative Way to Teach Children About The Calendar

hunk of the month

Who doesn't remember learning about the calendar in preschool and kindergarten? I certainly do, but maybe that's because I have witnessed Ellie learning it, just as I once did, at her preschool.

So, it’s been awhile since I’ve written a post...5 months to be exact. My life turned crazy after we sold our house.

My parents graciously allowed us … [Continue reading]
