Adventures Of a Flakes

Flower Pool Noodle Art

Today we had a playdate. We decided to use pool noodles to makes some flower art. I bought the flower shaped pool noodles at the Dollar Tree and cut them into 3 different sizes with a serrated knife (apparently, I can't cut straight).

We used the thickest noodles to do flower painting prints.

I love the brightness of this art.

We used the skinniest noodles along with silk flowers and cut out magazine flowers to make flower collages.

Many of the children sat for a very long time doing this gluing project.

We used the medium noodles, cut pieces of straws, and beads to make necklaces.

Aidman was very proud of his necklace.

Sand Doon Fun!

Today we went to some local sand doons to play. We had such a fun time climbing and running around.

Each time the kiddos got to the top of a doon, they raised their arms and shouted "WOOHOO!".


I think we all got a GREAT workout today!


Aidman LOVES to take pictures now.

Play along with us during the month of April for Children and Nature Awareness Month by posting a picture of your child(ren) each day enjoying the outdoors! Get outdoors and climb a tree! Check out who else is participating!

Dippin' Dinners

We LOVE dip! We also love making full meals that are just for dipping, and we do it quite often. We call them dippin' dinners, although more often than not they are for lunch.

Today we made hummus (chick peas, olive oil, lemon juice, s &p, oregano, and basil) and dipped pita, broccoli, carrots, tomatoes, and cucumbers.

We've had Muffin Tin dippin' dinners. This one included guacamole, black bean dip, salsa, sour cream, chocolate, and yogurt and we dipped in nachos with cheese, cucumbers, carrots, bananas, cherries, and plums.

Here we had tzatziki sauce (cucumber, greek yogurt, garlic, s & p, lemon juice, and dill) and dipped in red pepper, pita, chicken, carrots, cucumber, zucchini, and tomatoes.

We have also done dippin' dinners with homemade chicken nuggets and fries with sauce, warm spinach artichoke dip with dippers, and much much more! My kids LOVE to dip, and I love that it's a fun way to get them to eat their fruit and veggies.

Go check out what others are cooking up at Kids in the Kitchen.

Recipe Challenge - Banana Muffins

We LOVE muffins in my house!!  We try to make them every week because they are such a great grab and go breakfast, we just add a side of fruit, a cup of milk and we are good to go!  The best thing about muffins is that you can freeze them and eat at a later date if you want.This week I tried a new recipe for banana muffins and it was GREAT!  Here is the original recipe, and below is how I modified it. …See More

"When I was a prek teacher, I took a posterboard and drew a big picture of the Earth. Then we went outside and picked up any litter we could find. When we got back in we taped the trash to the Earth. They could really visualize what littering does."
