Christmas Tree Waffle Cones!

For Unto Us a Child is Born!

Merry Christmas! (a few days late but... who's counting?)

M2 Had a Blast Playing with the Christmas Lights!

M2 - 3.5yrs She looks so grown up!

Our Favorite Christmas Craft this Year:
Waffle Cone Christmas Trees

Waffle Cones
Food Coloring
Small Christmas Decorating Candies
Mini Marshmallows
Red Icing 

1. Setup - we used a big cookie sheet to contain the mess 
but also make it all visible to the kids to pick from

 2. The Process - Color the icing and frost the trees then DECORATE!

So what all candies did we use:
Mini Marshmallows (the really little ones)
Christmas Sprinkles
Cinnamon Candies

Even M2 got in on the action!

Once all the cones were done we used the red icing with a round tip to create a garland (this is obviously not necessary but I think it helped to make them all look a little more uniform together...)

She gave me a crazy look... But she is really proud of these! We put them on a tray and used coconut as snow! They have lasted the entire Christmas Season as our Center Piece on our Table!! Thanksgiving to New Years and I am sad to think it is almost time to throw them out! Maybe I can put them outside for the Birds...!

Glue Snowmen Window Clings

In Honor of the Coming Snowstorm a few weeks ago we made some snowmen to hang on the window!
Elmers Glue
Wax Paper/Non Stick Paper

It is so simple!
Draw an outline with glue in the shape of a snowman, and then I let M1 fill them in with glue!

Ours sat overnight and by morning they were dry! 
We added some snowman decorations, 
Poked a hole in the top,
Tied a String!

Good Luck with your Own Snowy Creations!

Make Your Own Free Wood Blocks for Your Kids

I have been wanting to do this forever!!!

We made our own log blocks for free!
Thanks to Daddy! The girls went out collected logs and sticks from the trees that fell down this summer!
Then Daddy helped them to cut them to all different sizes!!

If you're just looking to buy some blocks or don't have a Daddy or Grandpa with a chop saw Linkin Logs are a lot of fun too!

Rain Rain Go Away - A Rainy Day Science Project

A Rainy Day Science Project

It has been very rainy here lately - and cold! 
I am pretty sure we are almost past fall and plowing into winter!

Our Homeschool Science Lessons Lately have been focused on the weather and the seasons! To facilitate this learning we have been using 


Which can be found here:

This is an amazing fun book! It rhymes, its funny, and EDUCATIONAL! What more could you ask for in a children's book?

SO... Back to the rain!

We decided to do a little project to emphasize where rain comes from.


Large Clear Glass or Bowl
Shaving Cream
Food Coloring

Fill the glass 2/3 full of water

Cover the top with shaving cream (like clouds)

Drip the food coloring on top until it falls through

Explain how when the rain gets too heavy in the clouds it falls through!!

Very Exciting as you can see! 
I love seeing how my kids make the connection! I love it when it clicks!
Bringing book learning to life!
