I have been spending a great deal of time focusing back-to-school time on Ethan since he will be entering Kindergarten in two weeks. But I can’t forget about Chase, who will now be heading off the preschool this year. He is just as eager to be going to school and can’t wait to learn more.

May 2, 2014 1 Comment

I received Imagine I Can Travel Time for review purposes. All opinions are my own

This weekend we are going on our first family road trip (one of two this month). We are taking our older two boys (3 &4) to Branson for a couple nights. It is a four hour drive and I am not quite sure how they are going to handle it. I have been trying to find things to take so they don’t get bored easily while we are on-the-go.

Mother’s Day Gift Idea – Handprint Tote Bags

April 29, 2014 4 Comments

In less than two weeks is Mother’s Day and I am trying to get ahead of the game by getting everything made now. Even though I think all moms should be celebrated daily, I enjoy giving a little extra on Mother’s Day. The most popular gifts have always been those that are homemade, one-of-a-kind, and are made with the help of my little ones.

DIY Kitchen Busy Kit for Little Ones

February 1, 2014 No Comments

The kitchen is basically the center of our house. Between prepping for meals, cooking, snacks and cleaning, we spend a lot of time there. Often when I am trying to get things done, if they aren’t eating, the boys are running around and making a mess. I have to quickly find something to get their attention and keep them busy.

‘Fun with Froot Loops’ Activity Sheets for Preschoolers

January 9, 2014 No Comments

I am always trying to find ways to sneak some learning into everyday activities. With two preschoolers, they find it fun and we often do it while getting two things done at once. This can be as simple as making snack time a learning time as well. For some snack time fun,  I created some new activity sheets just for Froot Loops.

I received the mentioned educational games and activities to review. All opinions are my own.

Games. Games. More games. That is what I hear almost daily from my sons. They love board games and I try to accommodate their desire to play them as often as possible. To make game playing beneficial, about 90% of the ones we own are educational and target numerous skills.
