Colors and Numbers with Stickers July 19, 2010 by Nicole 4 Comments We have quite the collection of stickers so I gave B these activities to try. The first activity was to sort the stickers by color. Then, he put the corresponding number of stickers in each square. These activities are quick and simple ways to use up that growing collection of stickers!

Make It and Love It Copycat Crafts | DIY Designer Knock-Off Things to Make DIY flower pots Things we used Plaster of ParisStyrofoam ballsChenille stems/pipe cleanersPaint and brushes This activity is good for pre schoolers and above. Start off with painting the Styrofoam balls to make the flowers. Big A made a game out of it by challenging herself to paint the whole ball without getting paint on her fingers. She has to hold the ball in her left hand and paint with her right while rotating the ball to get paint evenly all around.Well, I guess she lost steam because she was burnt out from this extra-ordinary fine motor activity for at least 7 balls. Baby A’s goal on the other hand was to get as much paint as humanly possible on her body while getting as little as possible on the ball itself. Step :1 Paint the balls We set all the balls to dry and wrapped up the project for the day. Next step we made the flowers and a sun using pipe cleaners. Note: The sparkly ones may seem cute but they are only mediocre performers as stems. Step :2 Make the petals using pipe cleaners Extensions

Instructions: How to Spring Clean With Nontoxic Home-made Products - Environment - GOOD Tackling spring-cleaning this month? Us too. But there's no sense in doing it if you're going to create a big mess for the planet (and your body) in the process. Cleaning up your act isn't as straightforward as running to the pharmacy and picking out a bottle covered in claims of eco-friendliness and biodegradability, however. When it comes to home cleaning products a lot of eco claims are unverified and—worse—unverifiable, with rare exceptions like Seventh Generation. Instead of wondering what kinds of toxic chemicals you're flushing down the toilet or dumping down the drain every time you decide your apartment's gotten a little grungy, stock up on a few things listed below, and keep these easy recipes handy. All-purpose cleaner. Windows and mirror cleaner. Floor soap. Carpet deodorizer. Tubs, countertops, and sink scrub. Oven cleaner. Natural drain cleaner. Wood cleaner. Moldy grout remover. Shower spray. Toilet. Stainless steel polish. Marble, granite, or stone countertop cleaner.

I {finally} completed my pantry makeover! I mentioned in June {wow it took me a while to finish this} that I was going to redo my kitchen pantry here. I ripped out the old shelves, painted, stenciled, installed new shelves, and organized all my goods. Here's a before/after shot: I will definitely be writing a couple more posts about the project explaining the steps... but for now I just want to sit back and show off my final reveal! The organization makes me so happy! I even took out a shelf {originally had 5, now 4} but since everything is organized and has its own spot, I ended up with way more room! I'm even able to store my most frequently used craft supplies, my camera and its accessories so they're always in arms reach. The containers are from Home Goods for $7 and I used some twine to add a piece of slate I had spray painted with chalkboard paint to label what's inside. The gorgeous stencil I used is from Cutting Edge Stencils. Everything has a home... {Happy Dance}! One last look:
