Happy New Year everyone. Welcome back. I know I am glad to be back blogging everyday. Boy did I miss it…bad!
But on to my idea. If you read any of my blogs, you know that we have 4 kids, including a 9 month old pair of twins…yea…I know. Once they were born, it was hard to pay any quality one-on-one time with our oldest (he is 5). But he loves games, learning, and getting stuff. So we “made” an Award Board on the back wall of our living room wall. This board is only for him. He get certificates when he cleans his room without being asked, being a good helper, brushing his teeth. His most recent awards are because he was having school withdrawal. He searched out 2 workbooks he knew we had, and finished them–cover to cover. I had to leave him alone because he was “learning”. You bet he got 2 certificates. This Award Board lets him know we are always thinking of him and helps him to get ideas on how to get new ones.
Check out the other fantastic ideas at Scribbit’s blog.
PS–It is kind of the middle of the nite here when I took the picture. Everyone is asleep so I kept the lites off when I took the picture. But you get the idea.
Hello everyone. ok…I love christmas. I wanted to decorate the house and for little to no money. My hubby was kind enough to show me and our oldest son how to make snowflakes. I had a step by step picture I hope I can describe for you as to how to make them. They are so easy but kind of time consuming. I did have about 15 different snowflakes to show you but our daughter was kind enough to rip them up…oh well.
- Get a regular piece of typing paper.
- Fold it in such a way that it goes over itself, meets on one side, and makes a point.
- Fold it over again to make a triangle. You will have some excess on the bottom.
- Now cut that excess off.
- Fold one of the bottom points over so it meets in the middle. The top point should still be at a point. The bottom point should be hanging over, so to speak.
- Do the same with the other bottom point.
- Now flip it over…and where you see the paper edge…cut the excess bottom points off.
- Now you are left with an even smaller, yet thicker, triangle.
- Now start cutting….you can cut any design you want….experiment. I just took a picture of the one I made.
- Now you can unfold it and TADA….you have a magical snowflake.
- I included pictures of the snowflakes that survived my daughter’s hands.
Now go and see what other Christmas goodies you can do over at Scribbit’s blog….well…Christmas is over 2 weeks away…you may have time.
