Shark- Sh sh sh sound

Since I work at the YMCA in the mini care we sometimes to little fun lesson crafts!  :) We did this cute shark thing so Selah decided our letter this week should be "S" and also since her name starts with the letter "S."  We are also working on the "sh" sound since we are doing shark but also we will do "S".     We should have a few more "S" things to share later this week.  :) 

For this activity we read "Five Little Sharks Swimming in the Sea" and we already had these 5 cute sharks so I handed them out to my little helpers.  The book has some fun motions that the kids could use their shark and act out.  

Before we read the story we sang the song "Slippery Fish."  Here are the lyrics:
(make a fish with hands together)Slippery fish, slippery fish swimming in the water
Slippery fish, slippery fish,
Gulp, Gulp, Gulp
 It was eaten by a...

 (move hands around like you have 8 tentacles)Octopus,  Octopus, swimming in the water
Octopus, Octopus,
Gulp, Gulp, Gulp
It was eaten by a...

(move hands side to side)Tuna Fish, tuna fish swimming in the water
Tuna fish, tuna fish, 
Gulp, Gulp, Gulp
It was eaten by a... 

(put hand on forehead like a shark fin) Great White Shark, Great White Shark swimming in the water
Great white shark, great white shark
Gulp, Gulp, Gulp
It was eaten by a...

(push hands up over head like water spouting out of a whale)  Humongous Whale, Humongous whale swimming in the water
Humongous whale, humongous whale
Gulp, Gulp, Gulp
It was eaten by a...BURP!  

To make this shark all you need is an envelope.  Lick the envelope closed, cut one end across so your hand can be the puppet and then cut a triangle and use the triangle for the fin.  Allow them to glue on the fin, color, draw an eye, teeth, and gills. :) Then allow them to act out the story or just be a shark.  :)

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
