Along Came You By Estelle Corke Review



Thank-you Zondervan for sending me this book in exchange for a review.   All opinions expressed are 100% mine.  

My Review:
This is a board book so it is perfect for little fingers to page through.  The pictures are adorable and I think many mom's will read this story and agree with what the author says.   Life is completely different after having kids but it is in fact life much better with kids!  I couldn't imagine life without my two children... it would be dull without them!  They bring the sunshine to me each and every day.  

"Along Came You" is a very  simple story as a mom tells her child what life was like before having her and after having her.   The author will get any mother to recall similar stories and have you comparing your own personal before and after.   What a wonderful gift it is to be a mother.  

My two kids enjoyed the story and they are aged 3 and 6.   Since it is a board book I was recommend the ages for 2-4.

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!
