2012 Summer To Do List

Yeah. So I'm thinking this summer might be a little blog-lite. Because I've made myself quite a list of stuff to do, yo!

And that's just the Family List. My personal list could fill another 2 pages. But that one is full of really dumb things, like clean the freakin' refrigerator. Which I happened to do today and let me just tell you! It is BREATHTAKINGLY SPARKLING in there! 

This list is much, much more fun! Places to go, people to see, kid crafts to make that I saw on Pinterest and Lord help me I WILL NOT continue to add to my Kids pinboard without doing something about it.

Making the list was easy. I just made a Word table, filled it with stuff, changed the font to something cute (Shadows Into Light from - my favorite font site), printed it, stuck it on some cute paper and displayed it on the fridge for the world to see.

I even left a few spots open for things we forgot to add, like make some more "delicious" baked goods with Ella's Easy Bake Oven. 

I'm not going to lie. I had an Easy Bake Oven when I was a little older than Ella is. Even then I knew that shiznit WAS NOT what baked goods should be. But I love Ella, and there you go. She bought that Easy Bake Oven with her allowance and she is just the sweetest little girl ever in the world when she is in the kitchen with me. So, I'll eat anything that comes out of that little oven and I'll gush on and on about how amazingly yummy it is. Because good mothers lie to their children. I'm pretty sure that's in the mothering manual. Where it SHOULD BE is in the Easy Bake Oven manual. Just sayin'. 

We've been busy!!!

And, seriously, how cute are those magnets? My mom got them for the kids - you know, for artwork on the fridge purposes. Adorable!

Soon I'll show you some of the cool things we've done. And by soon, I have no idea what I'm talking about. I can't be making any summertime promises. I like my summers open and schedule free and obviously full of lists. I can never give up my lists.

Happy Summer To Do Listing!

Garden Caterpillar Classroom Kit

I know you've probably seen this cute little guy before. You can find him here.

But you've definitely never seen him like this! Getting all mass produced in a classroom kit!

This classroom kit is for 10 kids, but you can also order a classroom kit for 20 or 30 or 10,000! Although the standard 3-5 business day turnaround may not apply to that last number.

Here's what you get! Styrofoam balls that craftily become caterpillar heads and tails. And bright yellow paint and colorful chenille stems and crayons and lots of other goodness. Like colored toothpicks. For grown-up use only! You'll poke your eye out, kid!

And lots of rainbowlicious craft foam and circle templates to make the caterpillar bodies. Mix and match style! All packaged so you can easily pass out the materials and create garden caterpillars with ease. Because I care. Oh, and also, because I care, I always include extra craft foam color pieces. You don't want the last kid in line to be stuck with zero options. That would suck. We've all been that kid.

Even though this is called a classroom kit, it can most definitely also be used to create party favors or for play dates or summer camps or to decorate your neighborhood! Because, c'mon! Adorable! 

Happy Classroom Crafting!
