My Review:
It has been awhile since I reviewed a Berenstain Bear book!   I know you already know I love them!  I love that they incorporate such good values!  
The first book, "Play a Fair Game" did not disappoint.   Well, actually the adults in it were disappointing!   I could relate as a parent going to a kids sporting event to see parents acting out in such a manner that it took away the fun for the kids.   I imagine it happens often.  I love how the older lady who taught Sunday school to both the coaches ran onto the field to get them to settle down.   Sportsmanship was a big value taught in this book.  It is a book that actually should be a good reminder for adults as well!   

The second story, "Respect Each Other" was another good one.  I think we sometimes forget that respecting our elders is important.  This story is a good reminder to not be selfish with an agenda but seek some of the elders to see what ideas they have.  It is a great story with the bears!  

The third story is a fun one called, "Get the Job Done."   It is funny to see how spiders prevent the Bears from finishing a task... I suppose its because I could relate to it.  HAHAHAH!   With a spider hanging out where they were suppose to clean they move on to fun things instead of asking for help because of the spider!   The Cubs learn a lesson that its okay to ask for help because the tasks need to get completed.   

Thanks Zondervan for sending me that book for free in exchange for a review!   Did you know that Zondervan has lots of freebies on their website?  They have activity guides, and teaching help for lots of their kid stories!  This is a must resource for summer time!   Here is the link:    https://www.zonderkidz.com/resources/freebies/

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
