The Ivory Soap Experiment

I received a bar of original Ivory soap in the TLC VoxBox I received from Influenster this week and I almost couldn’t contain my excitement. Not because we use Ivory soap, but because I never think to buy it and I knew just how I’d use it. As the school year winds down, I thought


FarFaria Review and Subscription Giveaway!

*I was given a subscription to try in exchange for my review. All opinions are 100% my own. Do your preschoolers love to read or be read to? Mine both do, and while I’m happy to do it, reading 35 books a day can be time consuming!! When I was approached to review the FarFaria


Book Series for Kids- Grades 1-3

Little Luke is in first grade, and we are really blessed that he loves to read. On the weekends, he’ll sit down with a chapter book and read until he’s finished with it. It’s been a challenge to find enough books for him to read, and he tends to really like reading book series. We


Our Favorite Learning Toys and Games- Ages 5-8

Earlier in the week I wrote a post on our favorite learning toys for toddlers and preschool children, so I thought I’d write something about the toys and games we use for Luke as well. I never realized how educational something as simple as a board game could be until Luke was old enough to

Valentine’s Day Heart Suncatchers

I have seen things floating around Pinterest using Borax to make crystals, so I thought I’d try it myself. This activity was super easy and the results were great! The kids really enjoy looking at them hanging in the kitchen window. One word of caution, do the pouring of the Borax yourself, I’m not sure


Pine Cone Christmas Trees

‘Tis the season! We got our first snow last night, although it was just a dusting. We have been watching tons of holiday movies, and it really feels like the Christmas season! Last year at our PTA holiday party we made these Christmas trees, and they were a hit! They are easy enough for young

Learning Apps for Littles

Over the last year or so I’ve been back and forth with myself about my kids’ use of technology. How much is too much? Should they be using it at all? I think the answer is different for everyone, but we do allow it in our house. We try to limit their screen time, although


Dealing With a Resistant Learner

My oldest has always been very receptive to anything he is taught. He enjoys learning and likes to show others the things he has learned. When he was little, if I would ask him what a letter or number was he would tell me proudly with a huge smile on his face. Ella is the
