Fast Food Fun

Help your student hone her sorting and categorizing abilities with this French fry-themed activity! This data sorting practice is a great way to help your child to develop her math skills. Plus, this activity can also easily be modified to help with various academic subjects. Now, let's start this "fast food" lesson!

What You Need:

  • Three French fry containers
  • Yellow popsicle sticks
  • Markers
  • Index cards (3 per round or activity)
  • Scotch Tape

What To Do:

  1. With your student, write down the names of as many different animals that you can on the yellow Popsicle sticks. Remember to write only one on each stick.
  2. On three different index cards, write down three different attributes. For example, “has a tail,” “swims in the ocean,” and “starts with the letter T”.
  3. Tape each card to the front of a fry container.
  4. Have your student sort through the animals using the different attributes. Each fry that applies goes into one of the fry boxes.
  5. Discussion: Which animals fit in more than one container? What other categories can you name?


  • Use different kinds of objects. Don’t restrict the activity to animals.
  • Make it about English: use random words and label the boxes “noun,” “verb,” and “adjective.” Are there words that can go into more than one container?
  • Make it about math: prime numbers, even numbers, odd numbers, etc.

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,
