Photo contests

I have entered my daughter in a few photo contests just for fun.  I have no intentions of seeking a modeling career for her or anything like that but like all parents I think my Selah is one adorable little girl!  :)  I entered her in a Focus on the Family one in the fall and she was picked as a runner up and she will be in their magazine in March.  They are sending me the magazine, sent Selah a CD collection of Bible stories, and one huge parenting book.  The picture was for the category of family fun "messy fun".  I used a picture from last Easter when she was helping in the kitchen... or just eating off a spoon.  :)  It really was not a super special picture just the best one I had of her for the photo category.

I have entered her in a Parents magazine contest, and a few others online.  I have not done the Cute Kid contest yet, but looking into details on it.  Has anyone entered their child in this??  I have never seen such a big reward, there are smaller rewards as well.  Just curious!

So what have you entered your little princess or prince in?  Maybe not a photo contest but a coloring contest or some other contest?  I am interested in hearing your story.  :)

My favorite picture of my daughter that I think she could have been on the cover of a magazine is her watermelon picture.  She was nine months old and already a huge watermelon fan.  My brother took it and he is a photographer so it is difficult to find contests to enter because he is a professional.  BUT TAKE A LOOK:  Yep I'm a proud mama!  I actually have this picture in a huge poster size, framed and in my kitchen. People come over and do not even realize that is my daughter... I would never have a random baby that big on my wall.  LOL!!

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun! She is my little model... she kept saying "take my picture mom." She is like her

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
