2016 Halloween Guide

Hard to believe this is Chelsea’s 5th Halloween. Chelsea has already mentioned a few times that she wants to be a princess for Halloween this year. I know that she is going to enjoy trick or treating more this year than last as she is a bit older. This will be her 3rd year trick or treating. I felt that she was a bit too young to go trick or treating the previous years. Last year she really enjoyed it. We went trick or treating around half of our complex.  Chelsea loved that she also had goodies to give out to the other kids.

Halloween Treats: Fruit Snacks by Crispy Green!

unnamedChelsea and I are always on the lookout for healthy alternatives to the snacks that you see on a daily basis. We want to get away from all of those sweet snacks that are high in calories and high in everything that is not good for our bodies. These snacks from Crispy Greens are just what we were looking for. You don’t have to refrigerate them so they are perfect to stick in Chelsea’s diaper bag or my purse. Yesterday for example while we were shopping Chelsea kept saying she was hungry and was getting impatient. I really wish I would have remembered we had these delicious snacks at home.  These freeze dried fruit snacks are so delicious. I love that they come in many flavors.

Labcraft Wizards: Magical Projects and Experiments

unnamed-2This books allows children’s imaginations to grow and the fun craft experiments are great for educators to teach children more about Science and the world around them. The book offers 35 magical items and activities that budding sorcerers can work on at home, including a floating cloud trapped in a jar and a colorful, squishy dragon egg. Each project is accompanied by a list of simple, everyday materials list and detailed step-by-step instructions with helpful illustrations, and many also have brief asides that reveal the scientific principles behind the magic. Kids who build the smoke ring launcher, for example, will gain an understanding of exactly how the instrument manipulates air molecules to create rings, and kids who create a colorful, salt-encrusted wizard tree by placing a cardboard tree cutout in a salt-and-dye solution will learn about capillary action, the same principle by which real trees draw water up through their roots.
