I'm living my dream life, spending my days with my three sweet kids on the rocky coast of Maine...

boy2001 is a loveable 2nd grade LEGO brick master. An average week includes a round of golf, some time at the track with a smidgeon of Nintendo DS time.

girl2004 is a Care Bears enthusiast when she's not twirling to imaginary ballet, she's gleefully giggling to pink princess daydreams or requesting baking sessions.

girl2006 is an Elmo and Little People Fanatic, she insists on wearing tights and dresses everyday, as well as reading our 'I Love You' books everyday. She shares my love for Little House on the Prairie.

My personal goals are to go back to school for my Masters, possibly in Library Studies or Biblical Languages.

Smokey is our playful pup, half chihuahua, half rat terrier he's a handsome dog, although very good with the children Smokey does have his issues!

Chexter is our roborovski hamster, over a year old he's recently started to nip a little!

unisex crafts for kids, two easy and inexpensive

February 8, 2008

I have the hardest time finding crafts and activities to do with my son.  All the crafty things are geared towards girls in pretty pink boxes.  I recently searched for different things to do that would appeal to all three of my kids.  I was surprised by the vast ideas out there, here are two easy and inexpensive ideas.

 1.  Fossil Clay Recipe

4 cups flour

1 cup salt

1 & 1/2 cups water

create your clay and form it into the shape you’d like, then press in whatever you’d like to make a fossil of.  Plastic bugs or animals are a great choice.

2.  Classify Clean UP

create a graph of all the legos, gives them a great excuse to clean up the room!

Classify Legos by their size, for example 2 pointers

Classify Legos by their different colors

Classify Legos by their shapes

Put each different kind in a shoe box or ziploc baggy.  The same thing can be done with your childs animals.  Sort by the different groups. 





2 legs bad, 4 legs good (great time to read George Orwell’s ‘Animal Farm’
