Pete the Cat Hot Dots Review
Praises from a Wife and Mommy!
Well summer is almost done and my kids will soon be in school. Selah a 2nd grader and Titus a preschooler! I am so excited for them for the new year... we are expecting great things this year!
Titus was very excited to get this Pete the Cat Hot Dots set! We have other Hot Dots sets so this new one made him very excited! There are so many different activities that hit every educational area! The Set has two different work books that allowed my son a lot of fun. He loved the stickers he earned that was a part of the set. He is also anxious and excited to earn the certificate that came with the set.
When I sat down with my son it was so fun to see him thinking! It was as if I saw his confidence grow while playing! I recommend getting a Hot Dots set and having some fun with your child!

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
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
