{Play} Fun With Candy! Easter Candy Math

April 5, 2012 in All Posts, Fun With Food!, Play, Toddler Activities

If you don’t already,  you know you’ll have an empty egg carton and leftover Easter candy in a few days.  This is a great way to get a second life out of that carton and keep -at least some of- all that candy out of your kids’ bellies. Materials We just used a 30-egg carton […]

Hubby made a batch of gnocci with sausage the other day and half of the sausage went uneaten.  Unlike me, the family is picky about leftovers, so I needed an easy way to repackage the sausage without them noticing and without me having to spend much time cooking or prepping. We had an Ecce Panis […]

{Live} A Tooth-Friendly Easter Egg Hunt

March 29, 2012 in All Posts, Parenting, Sponsored Posts

It’s not Easter yet, but we are going on “practice” hunts in anticipation of the big day.  Kind of like Easter Egg Hunt rehearsal.  It worked well for us last year when Jane was 2 and Sam was under a year and they didn’t really understand what they were doing.  Although, they definitely understood the […]

This trio of […]

{Bake} First Shot at the Cake Pop

March 29, 2011 in All Posts, Bake

Move over cupcakes, here come the cake pops! I tasted my first moist bite of this confectionery craze at my dear friend C’s bachelorette party last year.  Another friend of ours had commissioned naughty cake pops from Tracy’s Tiny Treats and “boy” were they tasty.  Since then I’ve been dying to bake a batch myself.

{Live} Don’t Be Ranunculus

March 28, 2011 in All Posts, Play, Toddler Activities

Hubby typically covers the kids for 1.5 hours on Sunday afternoons after he gets back from the office so I can have some “free time” on the weekend. “Free time” at our house loosely translates to “grocery shopping or running to the drugstore alone without the kids slowing you down.”  If you’re speedy enough with […]
