The Princess Twins Play in the Garden and The Princess Twins Play in the Garden **Review**

 About The Princess Twins and the Puppy:
Puppy is no where to be found after he is missing during teatime.   The two princesses become worried and start searching everywhere for him.  After hearing Puppy's helpless bark from the dark, scary basement, Abby must confront her fear of the dark by trusting God and asking for courage to rescue her beloved puppy friend.

My Review:
I have a 4 year old aspiring princess so this story was very fun for her.  She is not ready for "reading" yet but she was very cute as she "read" and was point to the words on the page.  The book was very good timing as we will be bringing our new puppy home at the end of May.  I love that the story does bring back to a serious issue for many kids, being scared of the dark.  The other night I was walking up the stairs and the lights were off and my daughter said, "Mom we don't have to be scared because Jesus is with us." My heart melted and I agreed with her!  :)



About The Princess Twins Play in the Garden:
One princess sits out of all the fun activities through the day because she is afraid of getting her dress dirty.  With a little encouragement and a nudge from the other kids, the princess learns to embrace God's little gifts: a lovely day, ladybugs, and even some mud.

My review:
My 4 year old is 100% girly girl, she wears a dress every day!!!  My daughter has never been to cautious of getting dirty though, we do a lot of crafts and play outside and since she is always in a dress she just assumes mom can get it clean later.  I think my daughter was excited to see that the princess finally let go and went and had fun!

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
