Baby Food Jar Cap= Letter Help

Are you looking for a way to reuse some of those caps off of your baby food jars?  Then here is a great idea.  After you clean them simply use a permanent marker and write letters on each cap.  I did a set of capital, lower case, and numbers.  After you have completed that there are an endless amount of activities you can use them for.  

Our first activity was very simple.  I grabbed our letter flash cards and my daughter had to match the letters, say the letter, say the sound, and trace each letter.  

A few other ideas:
-make words
-practice names
-match lower case with upper case
-put the alphabet in order
-find objects that start with that letter
-I bet you can come up with other ideas too...Please make sure you come back and share your ideas.  :)

You can start working on letter sounds too once the letter names are down. You could even do letter combinations, like "sh", "ch", "th", and "ing"

Other ideas:
-memory game (find upper and lowercase letter pairs)
- rhyming words (spell out a short word, like log, and then replace the l with other letters to make other words (like bog, dog, frog, etc.)
- say words and have her pick out the first and last sounds she hears (for example, the first sound of pencil is p and the last sound is l)
- Read a book with her and look for specific letters in the book, reminding her of what sound they make

These are all things that the kindergarteners that I work with practice a lot.
Love this idea. We have lots of baby food jar lids right now and I keep thinking there should be something interesting to do with them.
Oooo I love the letter combinations!! We will for sure be doing that since we have been working on those sounds!

Rose, Have fun with your jar lids! :)

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,
