I thought that this Hidden Chick number game was perfect to use in preschool for the springtime! I actually made it last fall when I taught the letter E (you know, for egg!) in our co-op preschool, but it is so springy that I had to bring it out again! When we played it last […]

Did you know that if you cut a green pepper (or any other colored pepper) that you get a perfect 4 leaf clover shape? I saw a friend do this a few years ago, so we decided to try it out for ourselves for a little shamrock painting! The materials needed are pretty self-explanatory, but […]

I first saw this little Leprechaun on a Ledge on one of my favorite craft blogs, I am Momma Hear Me Roar, a couple of years ago. Last year, I knew it was time to make one of our own! The Leprechaun on the Ledge is sort of like Elf on the Shelf that people […]

Valentine’s Day Countdown Family Tradition

Not only do our kids love being Secret Cupids, but they LOVE counting down the days to Valentine’s Day with this tradition.  I’m pretty sure this tradition is our longest running one yet.  We started doing this when our oldest daughter was only 6 months old! Each day I hide a heart, somewhere around the […]

Pink Cookies!

My son decided that these cookies were the ones that he wanted to make for his Valentine’s party at school.  We decided that we better try them out beforehand to make sure they tasted as good as they look. We changed the recipe slightly by adding half chocolate chips and half white chocolate chips. They […]
