Chick-Fil-A Cow Appreciation Day Costume

So every year Chick-Fil-A has a Cow Appreciation Day!  This is actually our first time ever participating in this event, but I have several friends who take this serious!  We are basically weekly visitors to Chick-Fil-A so I figured why not go and get some FREE chicken!

In order to get your FREE chicken you need to wear something cow related!  So here I am basically the night before hurrying to make something cow related for them to wear.   I didn’t have any vinyl or contact paper but my original plan was to cut out cow patches with construction paper and glue/tape it on!  Well once my kids get into the play place I can see them coming apart.  So I came up with us other idea of painting some black patches on some old white t-shirts!

Letter Recognition

My son is in preschool right now and we have been working on learning to recongnize his letters.  He is really good at knowing his alphabet but we are needing help with letter recognition.   I have been trying hard but knowing my son I know I need to make it fun and entertaining for him.

I got to thinking and kind of browsed around on Pinterest and I saw this idea and I knew it was something he would enjoy.   It was so simple and not much effort was involved in making it.

Shaving Cream Easter Eggs

I just love Spring!   The weather is warming up, the lawn is turning green and the birds are out chirping!  But it also means that Easter will be coming soon as well.   My kids have always loved dying Easter eggs.  But everytime we do the little container with the dye gets tipped over, which is never fun.   I saw the Shaving Cream Easter Eggs on Pinterest last year and I thought of giving them try finally.

While the chicken was cooking I started to cook our spaghetti noodles.  Any kind of noodles will work, but son likes to slurp his noodles.

When the noodles are done I added some spaghetti sauce.

Each kid got a fun dinosaur on their plate.  Now add some mozzarella cheese on top.  You know how picky eaters are, one wants cheese and other doesn’t…its the story of my life! But I personally recommend the cheese!

With having little kids I am always trying to come with a way to always keep them entertained.    The weather this year here in Utah has been crazy!  We basically didn’t have a Winter and we have gone right into Spring with a few days that feel like Summer.   Which means we have been outside alot and all of our toys that I am usually just getting out for Summer have been out for awhile and well they are starting to get a little bored with them now.   SunnyD is WhereFunBegins for us!

DIY Colored Noodles for Sensory Play

I am always trying to find some new ways to keep the two year old busy.  With having a new baby in house it has been hard for him to not have all my attention like it used to be.   Plus with it to cold outside to play I need to get creative inside to keep those cute little hands out of trouble.    We still play with our DIY colored rice quite often but I thought I should mix it up now and make some DIY Colored Noodles.

I had a few boxes of noodles in my food storage room that were expired and they were those 3 minute cooking noodles.  Which I didn’t like so without having to waste them I decided to make a  learning tool and another way for us to have some fun.

With a new baby in the house we don’t get out of the house that much any more.   Especially with the cold winter weather.  So in order to keep our sanity and have fun at home, we have family game night, family movie night and just run around the house and play with every toy possible kind of night.  My favorite is family movie night.  We all snuggle up on the floor and have a nice variety of treats for all of us to share.   One of our always go to snacks are Goldfish crackers.  I thought why night turn or favorite cracker into a bowl full of yummy snacks.  This way its a win win for parents and kids.

 So drum roll please…….introducing The Ultimate Goldfish Cracker Snack Mix.   Nothing is left out and everyone is left satisfied.

DIY Advent Calendars

With Christmas right around the corner I wanted to start making some family traditions.   Now with my son being 2 years old I think he will start to have fun and hopefully understand the concept of only 1 piece of candy a day.   We will see how that goes.

At my mom’s ward for homemaking they had these adorable DIY Advent Calendars.   I thought they were cute, simple, easy to re-use every year.  So I decide to buy some and put them together.

Color Matching

My son is at the age where we are starting to learn the basics.   As a parent im trying to come across easy ways to help him learn  his colors, shapes, letters and numbers.  Trying to come up with ways to teach your child their colors can be quite complicating and frustrating.   So I thought I needed to make it fun for him to keep him entertained and interested in learning color matching.

So I created this quick and easy color matching wheel.  The best part it didn’t cost me a thing, since I had everything on hand already and it only took about an hour of my time.
