Fabric Binky Clip

I LOVE the beaded binky clips for girls, but for my little guy I thought I needed something a little more masculine and sturdy :) So I googled fabric binky clip tutorials and found this one. It was simple even I could figure it out!! I bought some more fabric to make another one too. I think they are so cute!

Taggie Crinkle Toy

I had some left over fabric from a blanket that my mom made me so I decided to make a crinkle taggie toy. Have you heard of those? It is basically soft material your baby can grab onto, chew and it crinkle as they play with it. The best part about making one is that you can use scraps of material and ribbon you have lying around. I used this tutorial. Hope my little guy likes it!

Secret Service Agents {Activity Days}

Here is an idea that we did for activity days.

We read and talked about the story of The Good Samaritan.
Then we gave each girl an envelope marked TOP SECRET with their name on it.
Inside was 7 assignments for the next week to secretly serve others. We talked about different ways that the girls could serve each of these people over the next week.


I got ideas from here, here and some where else that I can't find anymore.

I just left spots where I can journal or put a small picture. Don't you love when you finally use up some of the stuff you have had forever! Here are the pages:

1/2 cup rice
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 Tbsp. dry onion
2 cans of tomato soup
1/2 cup water

April Fools' Treat

Happy April Fool's Day!

Our after school snack today is defiantly going to be candy sushi!
My kiddos will love them. I mean how can you go wrong with rice krispie treats, Swedish fish, fruit rolls ups and gummy worms?

Add chop sticks to eat them with for even more fun!
Totally fun to make, not too difficult, and pretty tasty!
