I am a mom of 4 kids(13,12,10 and 8)who taught preschool for 2 years.
I hope you can use this blog as a resource to find fun activities to do with your children. Some ideas are new, while others have been around a while. This is a place where I can store all our activities without having to actually have to store them in my attic. I hope you find some fun and easy ideas.
Thanks to everyone who shares their kid projects. I always love seeing what everyone does. There are so many people doing fun projects with their kids. If you have done a fun project with your kids please link below.
I also have found so many fun blogs to check out by hosting We Made It ! Friday Showcase!!!!
I wanted to give my pre school kids a cute year of the gift without breaking the bank. I went to the Dollar Tree and picked up a few summer items and put them together in a castle making pail. I made 9 of these for around $15. It contains bubbles, a 5 pack of colored chalk, a small pin wheel and 2 freezer pops.
I thought this would also make a good goody bag for a pre schooler birthday party.
Happy Memorial Weekend to everyone !!!! I hope everyone enjoys their long weekend.
To anyone that may be new to We Made It! Friday Showcase!!, it is where you link a project you have done with your kids this week. It does not have to be an original idea, it can even be an idea you have gotten from my blog.
There are so many people doing such great projects with their kids, I love seeing them all. Thanks to everyone who participates.
I love this recipe, it is so super easy, inexpensive and so good. The kids can definitely help make this, and it is great for all the end of the year potlucks a lot of us have to go to.
Two of my four kids like this, I know it may not be for every kid. But it is something they can make and you can eat.
I found this recipe in The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook. I am trying to lose a little because bathing suit season is coming.
