Mother Daughter Bean Boozled Food Challenge

If you have a child who has access to YouTube or YouTube Kids, I'm sure you've heard about all the food challenge videos. (Not to mention all the un-boxing videos, videos with annoying, squeaky voices playing Shopkins or with dolls...the list goes on my frineds.)

My daughter loves watching the food challenges and they are pretty much the only videos I can stand watching with her. She's been wanting to do one with me for the longest. I have been telling her "no thanks" for a while until one day our play date plans got canceled and I said YES! I was very selective as I didn't want to play "eat it or wear it". Too much of a clean up commitment for me. I agreed on the Bean Boozled challenge IF we could find the jelly beans at the store. We found the box (no spinner included) at Walgreens. Luckily they were on sale at 2/$4! She even paid for them herself.

When we got home, we separated the colors into cups and I made a spinner for us to use. (You can download the spinner here to use for yourself.)

If you enjoyed the video, please give us a big 'ol thumbs up. :)


*If you do this at home with your kid(s) just be aware that the taste of the jelly beans will stay in your mouth for a while. It did for me at least. Even after chugging water, eating bread, brushing and flossing. Good luck with that!*

Kid Made Garden Signs


We love anything that takes learning outside of the classroom and makes it hands on. Including your children in gardening creates so many lessons to teach that are hands on, which is the best way kids learn. I'm going to share with you today how the kids can create some lovely garden signs while promoting literacy.

Over 20 Nature Crafts for Summer Fun

 Stick Crown by Mamma Miss

Summer is here...and it's hot! We're a few weeks into our summer vacation over here in NY and my daughter is already complaining that she's run out of things to do. All she seems to want to do is watch those super annoying un-boxing videos on YouTube Kids. Why is it that every grown up making those videos feels the need to use a super annoying, screechy voice?! 

As I was saying, get your kids outside in nature with some of these nature craft ideas from around the web.

The Rainforest Took Over Our Classroom!

The two week theme about the Rainforest we do at our preschool is one of my favorites! It also is the time of year when we realize that the school year is coming to an end...and quickly! After this we have school breaks, field trips and events planned to keep time moving super fast.

This year I have one of my favorite bunches of kids and I want to hold on to them, but soon they will be graduating and off to Kindergarten. 

Anyhow, here's how we did things in our classroom for the Rainforest theme:

The first day we talked about explorers and read "We're Roaming In the Rainforest". I asked the children what animals they'd like to see if they explored the rainforest. Then we made explorers to hang in our room. They also drew a picture of the animal they chose and added it to the final project. I loved these explorers! The idea was originally from KinderbyKim's rainforest page

Dinosaur Week in Pre-K

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support.

Kids love dinos. And saying the word underpants. My class absolutely loved reading "Dinosaurs Love Underpants" to kick off dino week at school. They were full of giggles the whole day over it!


I'm thinking these underpants books will be a part of any theme we can fit them into. (They have Aliens, Pirates and Monsters who Love Underpants. Just check out the underpants books by the authors.)

First Week of Pre-K Open House and Classroom Management

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support.

School has officially begun and I am psyched to start over with a new class this year. 

Open House:

We started off with a very successful open house night where I got to meet all of my new cutie pies and their families. They were all so sweet! This year I found folders on clearance for $0.33 at A.C. Moore so I bought enough for each family. I organized the open house hand outs by putting all the papers the adults needed to fill out by the first day of school on the left side and all the information sheets and activities for the children on the right.
