Painted cardboard houses and baked goodies

Little Cardboard houses Materials needed: -Empty cereal box -Scissors -Hot glue gun -paint This was a fun craft to do with my little one. I figured we could use our old cereal boxes. So I came up with making little houses to go along with her little car set.  I also made us a yummy treat. Raspberry almond shortbread cookies , they are delicious!  Made these to go along with our tea party later today. =) Here's where I got my recipe: “Bake with love..”  ―  Manuela Kjeilen

Float, sink or absorb?

Will it float, sink, or absorb water? Observation activity This was a great learning/observation activity to do with my little one. I asked questions like, "why do you think the rock sank to the bottom, but the sponge was able to float". I went over the different shapes, and sizes of each object. Also pointing out which ones were lighter, and heavier. I also asked which one she thought would float, sink, or absorb when placed in the water. We went over this a few times, and soon she was able to tell me what would happen when they were placed in the water. Our observations- Rock -when added to the water, they sank to the bottom. Silk flower  absorbed some water but still managed to float above water. Cotton balls immediately  absorbed water, and sank to the bottom. The paper towel absorbed  some water and floated the first time. The second time put into water it sank to the bottom. Jewel , along with buttons all sank to the bottom

Our weekend {Sweet November}

"A sun-drenched sky on a windy autumn day; out across open fields passing clouds make shadow play. Silent beauty in multi-hues but ominous in a sense; for though today be delightful darkness soon gains precedence. -   Ray,  Psychology of Seasons Hello November, so nice to have you here... Hello sun -You're so beautiful on our evening walks. Colors of fall-Make me feel so cheerful. Golden leaves have taken over this path-so pretty much! A little playground fun-A lovely evening to play out in the autumn sun. Beautiful Colorado mountains. Lunch time-Fajita pizza, prepared by my wonderful husband. Zebra cake, with Mocha frosting...(You read right, Zebra cake. It's a premium cake mix, and it should come out looking like Zebra stripes. Our cake didn't come out with the stripes, but oh boy it was delicious.) Here's the link for the cake mix- zebra-cake mix De
