Fathers day is quickly coming!

Not sure what to do for fathers day yet? Not sure what gift your little one will give him? Well here are some great ideas. (If my page is not on them they are not my creations)


Use word (or whatever you have on ur computer) to write up this poem and print it once ink dries Make sure you get a clean shoe/boot (of daddies) paint the bottom and place it on the paper first. Once that dries paint ur little ones shoe or foot (there is another pic of what the shoe would look like) and place it over the shoe mark. Let dry and done!

the saying is
""Walk a little slower daddy," said a child so small.
"I'm following in your footsteps and I don't want to fall.

Sometimes your steps are very fast,
Sometimes they're hard to see;
So walk a little slower, Daddy,
For you are leading me.

Someday when I'm all grown up,
You're what I want to be;
Then I will have a little child
Who'll want to follow me.

And I would want to lead just right,
And know that I was true;
So, walk a little slower, Daddy,
For I must follow you." -Author Unknown

1. Paint ur child's foot and place on card stock
2.when dry cut out around ur child's foot and add saying "When you are tired of reading your book,
Mark your place with my little foot!"
You can either write it with permit marker or print it out and glue it on
3.Punch a hole in the end and attach string
(you can also Laminate it)

One way I keep my kids learning over the summer break!

We all know that summer can be one time our kids can lose what they learn during the school year. We get told this over and over every year and it is very true. So every summer we try to fit in as much learning as we can(while still having fun). This year we are trying spring/summer journals. As much as possible we  take walks and every time the kids see something they find interesting they either write about it and/or draw a picture to go with it. This way we are keeping up with new vocabulary and learning about many different things.
So yeah, this is the new thing we are adding this summer to help keep my kids learning! So far it has been a big hit, lets hope it stays that way. :)



Have a good rest of your morning, evening, or night! Bye guys!~

Spring dollar sensory bin/easy cheap sensory play

Spring is here finally! We are so ready for the warmer weather! To celebrate the start of spring I decided a nice sensory bin was a good idea. So off to the local dollar store I went to see what they would have. Dollar stores are a great place to find cheap ideas for play. 
They had a whole selection of fairies and gnomes and many accessories. This was the tray I put together for my kids but my kids are older and I know they wont eat any of this. If you have younger kids or toddlers  I suggest looking around to find more age appropriate items. I also look for items that will not just sit around or go to waste. These little figures will go in a play bin for not only my kids to enjoy threw the spring/summer but for my neighborhood kids to enjoy also. The only thing I wish I would have added to this tray was water. We covered the sense of touch here in many ways and water would have been a great add on. Anyway this was my kids bin but you can make many different bins from dollar stores …
