Alphabet Spoon- Matching Game

 Thank you to; From Kindergarten With Love, who gave me this idea.  I love her vinyl letters and wish I could have made mine like that, but I have no a marker will have to do.  :) :) 

Kids love games and I have noticed that if I say "game" to anything my daughter gets excited.  :)  When those "games" are educational I get excited.  :) 

This was very easy to create!  I found both clear and white spoons at the dollar store.  I used white as my capital letters and clear as my lower case letters.  

I know my daughter knows her capital letters much better then lower case so this game is good practice for her to start to learn those lower case letters better.  

I spread the upper case and lower case letters out in two different piles.  Then I first had her locate the letters in her name and put the lower case with the upper case.  After she did her name I told her to try to make as many pairs as she could.  I could easily see her getting frustrated because of all the letters still left.  So to alleviate some of her stress I took out 5 upper and 5 lower case letters to make pairing a bit easier for her.  

I now know what lower case letters we really need to focus on!  The spoons are easy to store and this could even be a travel game!  :)  We are taking a road trip soon for a wedding and it will be fun for her to have one bag of letters at a time searching for the letters as she looks out the car window.  :)  So we will be taking these with us!  :)

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,
