Real-Working Cash Register from Lakeshore Learning- Review

Thank you Lakeshore Learning for sending me this cash register to review.  All opinions are 100% mine and I was not paid for this review.

About the cash register: 
Reinforce real-world math skills...with a cash register that really works! The built-in calculator and digital display let kids add, subtract, multiply and divide as they ring up purchases! The cash drawer even pops open so children can figure out the correct change! 10 1/2" cash register has a large, solar-powered digital display; includes a “credit card” and play money.  This item is sold for $34.99.  

Imagination play is one of the best types of play and it is one area I am always encouraging my children in.   With technology everywhere children are starting to hop on board and ask for the Ipad or tablet before playing with their room full of toys.  

My kids have loved this cash register from Lakeshore Learning!  They have liked it so much that I have had to enforce a time limits and turn taking because of some arguing.  

I have enjoyed the money labeling and practice with my daughter the most.  She is a fast learner and instead of asking for a quarter for a gumball she soon will be asking for $20.  

This cash register is sure to bring lots of imagination play especially during the cold winter months.  Kids can now set up a store and actually make purchases with money or the credit card which we call the bank card.  At a young age we are trying to make sure we encourage staying out of debt!  

This is a great toy to have at home that will allow minds to imagine but also help build math skills!

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

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

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!
