OUR REVIEW: Our Kelly Kit came in the mail and we were to make some fun green "Kelly Klay." Thank-you Kelly Kits for sending me a kit to review. All opinions are 100% mine and I was not paid for this review. The product arrived safely in nice clean packaging. Once I opened up the package I found the easy to read instructions. It was very simple to create the Kelly Klay. The Kelly Klay was very similar to a play-doh but instead of measuring and making sure I had all the ingredients it was much easier to open the package and add some water. :)
Once it cooled off I had my eager son sit down to play with it. We made shapes, used straws and other fun kitchen tools to create. My son is only 19 months but he still manipulated the play-doh and had fun. It was fun to play copy cat with my son. I would pound then he would pound, I would roll and he would roll. FUN! Once my 5 year old got home from school she also joined in on the fun. Kelly Kits also offers its members a member profile on their website with many other ideas to try for that months art project along with contests and instructional videos! :)

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!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
