Happy Thanksgiving

I love Thanksgiving because it is a time when we get together with family and friends. We have three Thanksgiving meals that we attend, though not on the same day. The first meal we have is with our friends sometime in November. We all used to live within blocks of each other but now we are not, in fact I moved the furthest away. This year was our 4th annual Fakesgiving-as we call it. My kids look forward to this meal every year because these are friends we can count on. These are my ...

Who Feeds The Fish {Printable}

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 ...

Lucky Clover: St Patricks Day Crafts

I love shopping the after holiday sales. This is where I find a lot of my fun crafting supplies. This past January I went to an after christmas sale and found some green burlap ribbon. I knew I could make one or two St Patricks Day crafts of some sort. I love a white frame with a simple picture inside. I decided to create a clover out of the burlap ribbon. The tricky part is making a clover the right size when the ribbon isn't wide enough, but I was able to figure it out. If you ...

Father’s Day Gum Wrapper

I have already told you my girls LOVE planning for holiday's. The day after Mother's Day they started planning an easy craft for Father's Day! One thing they all decided is that Dad likes gum. He always has a pack in his car, on his dresser and in his church bag. My three year old now shares the love of gum (much to my dismay) and knows where to search to get a piece when she wants one. Dad doesn't like this so he tries to remember to hide his gum. In honor of our Dad who loves gum I have ...

Phases of the Moon

In addition to the Space Ship Craft - I thought it would be fun to teach my Little Chefs the different Phases of the Moon.  Each night, especially in the summer time, they love to find the Moon - to see what "shape" it is.
