ItsySparks, Mini Scientists|

This is probably one of the quickest science experiments you can do, while receiving one of the biggest "WOW" factor from your kiddos! Basically, all you need is a bar of Ivory brand soap and a microwavable plate! As with a lot of our experiments, we like to do a sink or float test. Ask your child to predict whether the bar of soap will sink or float, then put it in a bowl of [...]

One Thing At A Time

ItsySparks, Your Daily Zen|

Do you ever feel overwhelmed and think it feels impossible to get all that you have to do, done? You are not alone! Breathe. And then say to yourself “One thing at a time.” Have 3 loads of laundry to put away… from last week!? A LONG holiday to do list? Or something similar? Say, and repeat to yourself, “One thing at a time.” Put one shirt away, then one pair of socks, then one [...]

Fix Your Grammar

Your Daily Zen|

Your vs. you're Their vs. there vs. they're Can you imagine if I misspelled the article and wrote "Fix You're Grammar"? It would be super embarrassing but sometimes you're not thinking... or is it "your not thinking?" Anyway, we could all use a little lesson on contractions. People overuse the word "literally" literally like all the time - see what I mean? If you have a teen or tween this might be a good video to [...]

Kid Approved Dinners: Easy Quiche Lorraine

What to Eat|

I can't think of a more satisfying meal than quiche - and easy Quiche Lorraine to be specific. Serve this up for breakfast, lunch or dinner and kids love it too (bacon cheese and eggs, what's not to love???) I usually double the recipe and freeze the second pie. If you'd like to skip the pastry, Marie Callender's does a great frozen pie shell. And if you're looking to skip the crust completely - [...]
