Newborn Pink Tutu

I love when I get a chance to work on little girly things. This week my friend from Japan reminded me about the tutu we talked about and got me to thinking I better practice. I had a little leftover light pink tulle (she wants hot pink) from another project, so I made a go […]


Indian and Knight Kid Costumes

Corbin mentioned being an Indian for Halloween and Benjamin wanted to be a knight so I found some fabric that’s I’ve had in a box for over a year and a pillowcase and whipped up a few costumes. I also made a cape for Benjamin too. Not really what I should have been focusing on, […]


Christopher Columbus

Monday was Christopher Columbus day and I found lots of fun ways to learn all about Christopher Columbus and his voyages. I found a kid friendly book called Christopher Columbus by Scholastic and found a free online teachers guide to use with the book. Awesome! I also utilized other books from the local library, read […]

Learning About Grains

After our history lesson on Ruth from the Bible, we had a fun filled morning learning about grains. I found an online lesson called The Grain Train and discussed how bread is made. Then we read “The Little Red Hen” which is about a Hen who grows her own wheat to bake her own bread. […]


Bowling with Cardboard Rolls

Today I introduced our new scripture for the week, “My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth” Psalm 121:2. Playing games is a great way to help kids memorize information. Repetition and fun is key! In our history lesson we read in Judges how the Lord instructed Gideon to send 300 men […]
