Jump rope songs are fun sing in the summer or at school. A great way to incorporate music and fitness. Package with a new jump rope for unique gift ideas.

After printing and putting together a photo book with jump rope songs my girls had some words for me. They did not like some of the versions of the songs and they informed me of other jump rope games they play. I decided to take their suggestions and create part 2 of the jump rope songs. My girls like this version of Ice Cream Soda better. They say it is an updated version. Wow, now I really feel old. School  - this game is played one at a time until a mistake is made. Not only does it require a lot of jumping but it requires even more running. Helicopter is a song I remember, but these are the (updated) words my kids sing at school. Mouse trap is a back and forth … [Read more...]

DIY Pineapple kids crafts keychains for keys or backpacks.

My kids have an event at school where they practice buying things in a different language. We have been involved in this the past 2 years. They are always looking for donations of keychains or similar small items that the kids would enjoy. One year a friend of my daughter made keychains. I thought it was a great easy craft because keychains are something kids can make and mine like putting them on their backpacks. We are going to create some different types of keychains for this school activity. To start out we are creating a pineapple keychain. If you don't have an event like this at your school my kids are always on the lookout for gifts they can make for friends or siblings for birthdays. … [Read more...]

10 kiddie pool ideas for summer.

I love buying a toy that can be used for many different things. One such item is a Kiddie Pool. There are so many fun activities you can do with it to keep the kids busy for hours at a time in the summer. Swim! This is the intended use of the pool so add some water and jump in! Splash as much as you want because it's ok if the water gets out of the pool. Buckets and Cups! Add buckets and cups to pour water from one to the other. Of course they will eventually use the bucket to pour the water over their head or a friend's. Make sure you have your camera ready for that fun shot! Boats! Make your own or add boats to race from one side to the other. Bubbles! Add … [Read more...]

Jump rope songs are fun sing in the summer or at school. A great way to incorporate music and fitness. Package with a new jump rope for unique gift ideas.

There are so many fun memories I have from my childhood. Jumping rope, singing songs on the playground at school and playing hopscotch were two of my favorite things. I want to share these songs with my kids through these Jump Rope Songs {Printables}. This time instead of creating easy crafts I made the printable simple to send to one hour photo and let them do the work. Check here for even more jump rope songs and activities. When I was in elementary school I used to jump rope. I remember watching some older kids play double dutch and wish I could be like them. We had fun rhymes we would sing at recess making exercise fun. My girls have just started getting into jump rope at school. … [Read more...]

printable fish feeding schedule

When you have a pet that needs to be cared for a schedule is necessary. All kids want their turn to help out but they also want fairness and equality. Having a schedule will ensure fairness and everyone will know who has a turn on what day. A nice coworker at Little Chef Dad's work learned that we do not allow pets at our house. We do not ever want a dog or a cat or anything. My kids are welcome to walk the neighbors dogs (which they love to do), or play with friends bunnies, kittens or birds. We already have a houseful of kids and we love the flexibility to leave whenever we want without wondering who will take care of the animal. This coworker visited an aquarium and brought back … [Read more...]

how to make a bookmark

My kids love to read for school and fun. I find them holding their places in the books with toys, pencils, kleenex.... It was about time we learned how to make a bookmark. Easy crafts are something we love to do. We found a way to create cute bookmarks to hold our places when it is time to put the book down. We enjoy frequenting the library to discover new books and movies. I am constantly putting books on hold for my kids who have seen a friend with a book that looked fun and interesting. A common phrase at my house is, "I'm almost done with this page". Many times chores and lights out are delayed. This craft may seem overwhelming because of the amount of supplies pictured, but … [Read more...]

easter treat

Holidays are more fun when food is involved. We made fun Easter Treats - a birds nest. All the items included are edible which makes it perfect for an easy craft or for a festive centerpiece if you put a few in a row. For some reason edible treats are always more fun. Depending on the person it is either more fun to create or more fun to eat. This one didn't turn out exactly as I had planned in my mind, but my kids still love it. I adjusted the size and it worked a lot better. Supplies: peeps Big League Chew Pretzel Twists  - candy covered or plain Jelly Beans  frosting - in a ziploc bag with the end cut or a piping bag. Instructions: "Glue" 8 pretzels together … [Read more...]

Easter Bunny Crafts

easter bunny crafts

Easter is almost here and I want to share these easter bunny crafts that are cute as well as functional. Easy crafts are the best, especially when you are crunched for time. This easter bunny craft can be made within 15 minutes after gathering supplies. Don't worry most of the supplies are common crafting items. My kids are loving the EOS chapsticks. I'm not sure if it is because of their very distinct shape or because all their friends seem to have at least one. They have been begging me to get them each one and I finally caved because I thought it looked like an egg. Little Chef A saw the aqua color and thought if we speckle it with black paint it would look like a robins egg. Yes … [Read more...]
