Father’s Day Craft: #1 Dad Ribbon

Before I get into the post for today, I would like to apologize for the lack of posts over the last few days.  I pinched a muscle in my back and couldn’t sit for any period of time…or stand or anything for that matter.  I am now feeling much better, probably because of the doctor’s …

Crafty Recipes: Non-Cook Playdough

This is a recipe that I created when I was working in preschool.  There isn’t too many opportunities when you want to make playdough with the children, especially since our kitchen was upstairs and didn’t have enough room to sit and make it with 16 children.  This meant that teachers in my center often made …

Craft Project: Tongue Painting

It has been a while since I did a craft project – not related to a holiday – and it is probably about time that I do one again.  This month (since this seems to be an almost monthly occurrence)  I thought I would do a little write up on tongue painting with children. No, you …

Crafty Recipe: Cooked Playdough

As many of you know, I am a big fan of playdough.  Usually, I prefer to make a non-cooked playdough since it takes less time and I can make it with my kids.  Sometimes, though; I like to make the cooked playdough since it usually lasts longer than the non-cooked. What you need: 1 1/2 …

Blown Easter Eggs

Every year I have boiled those wonderful eggs so that I could spend a few hours coating myself in food dye just for the simple enjoyment of the experience.  For all children, egg dying is a wonderful experience and my children look forward to it every year.  My biggest problem with dying eggs was that I …
