Holiday Showcase: Childish Thoughts

What kinds of fabulous goodies to you carry?
I have all sorts of goodies for the kids.
Crayon rolls with matching totes, car rolls, crayon aprons, chef aprons, play mat, tool belts, chalk mats, most everything is great for on the go fun.

What inspires your work?
My kids inspire my work. If there is something my 6 year old wants he usually asks me to make it, if I enjoy making that item I add it to my shop. My 11 month old cant tell me much just yet but I am sure once she gets those words out she will be telling me all sorts of things she wants.

Why is handmade important to you?
I just love handmade, doesnt matter what it is. It has its benefits though, great time for me and my kids to bond, my children help me sew, be it they help me pin the fabric together or help get the sewing machine going.

Share a handmade gift that anyone can do!
handmade wrapping paper / gift wrap
and its easy to do, environmentally friendly and fun too.

here is what you do
Lay a square of fabric flat on a surface in a diamond shape.

Set the gift you intend to wrap in the center of the fabric.

Grab the right hand corner of your diamond. Bring it over the center.

Pull the left hand corner of your diamond over the center of your gift. Tie the corners together in a standard square knot.

Grab the top corner of your diamond and bring it over to the center of the gift

Grab the bottom corner of your diamond. Bring it to the center of your gift. Tie the corners together in a standard square knot.

Lastly, where can we find you?

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too. We made puppets to play with all week long and Jayne has done great on his worksheets so far. There is also a new addition to our school! His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
