It is important to encourage a child’s sense of awe – and maybe rediscover it ourselves. The magic and wonder can be a great early draw into a love of gardening and science. I’ve found a collection of bloggers who know that and have some of the best ways to teach kids about seeds and the amazing ways they grow.
We have learned a lot about ourselves, about what being self-sufficient really means, and the direction we’re headed.
Last year, we had my three plus my cousin’s kid all together for New Year’s Eve. Did I mention they were all under age 6? We wanted to do something fun for the holiday, but there is not enough holiday guilting in the world that would get me to keep them up til midnight. I […]
Here are 12 ways to get your hands dirty and learn about soil alongside your kids.
I was excited but also clearing out my weekend to plan to make preparations. Thankfully, I’d just really overthought it. Here’s how easy it is to make a healing balm.
A few months ago, I was still pregnant with child number four, and Organic Gender sent us their gender prediction kit for review. I blogged about it at the time, along with other gender prediction methods. You guys shared your trusty tells, and we all waited.
Whatever reason you choose not to have an ultrasound, sometimes it’s fun to have some predictions anyway. Organic Gender sends you 2 little flower pots, one Girl and one Boy, with dirt discs and two packets of seeds. Follow the instructions to keep it watered. The strongest growth wins!
I always carry big in pregnancy. Even from my first, I got all kinds of fun questions about how many were in there, when I was ready to pop, etc – and that was all before the third trimester! So, when I found out I was pregnant with #4, I figured I’d have quite a […]
The Superbowl is upon us, and what better time to try out all of the yummy snacks you been eyeballing? It doesn’t have to be a guilt (or antacid) inducing affair, either. Check out these yummy and basically-good-for-you treats when you’re making your menu for the weekend. Dip it up! Nothing is more suited to […]
My husband has a denim quilt that his mom made him when he was just a kid. He used it as his comforter when we were dating, and we’ve had it as a throw blanket for eight years of marriage. It obviously meant a lot to him, so I wanted to do something similar for […]
This Thanksgiving, I am thankful…that I’m not hosting! I’ve basically been a lump on the couch the last two months (yay, First Trimester!), so my kitchen is barely up to the task of dinner-on-real-plates, let alone a big feast for tons of family. Still, Udi’s has come through again with more products to make life […]
I’ve spent the last few days curled up in a blanket as autumn rains pour. Okay, I’m also eight weeks pregnant and, to be fair, have spent the last several weeks curled up in a blanket. Cooking hasn’t been my forte, despite the tempting aroma of pumpkin spice mixes everywhere. So, this fall sampler of gluten […]
