{Absolutely AMAZING Idea!}

19 Mar

When I saw this it absolutely touched my heart! What an amazing idea! Thank you PINTEREST! I will be starting this now!

On his daughters graduation day a father handed his daughter a gift. When she opened it she saw a book…”Oh the Place You Will Go!” by Dr. Seuss. It was not just any copy though, when the girl opened it the pages were filled with notes from all of her teachers, principals and coaches since Kindergarten! Her dad had gotten this book for her in Kindergarten and he would have all of her teachers sign it as a surprise for her on her graduation day!

the places you will go

{ABC Wall}

19 Mar

I think this is such a cute idea for a Little Ones Room or your kids playroom! Not to mention easy to do. You can find all different size letters at your local craft stores, then just spray paint them colors of your choice and hang them. Here are some cut ones I found!

We made it over the Rainbow… Pudding!!

18 Mar

I don’t have children yet but I do love finding fun crafts and baking that I can do when I’m with them. It can be a really engaging activity as most kids want to help out in the kitchen with baking! I’m all for anything that gets them away from the computer and tv screen and this project is just a blast to do with kids!

Ingredients

3⁄4 cup sugar 1/3 cup cornstarch 1⁄4 tsp salt 1 cup 2% milk 2 cups whole milk 1 whole egg, plus 3 egg whites 2 tbsp unsalted butter 11⁄2 tsp vanilla extract (clear if you can)

or 1 vanilla bean Gel food coloring (such as AmeriColor) in red,

orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple

Supplies

Saucepan Whisk 6 small mixing bowls Clear bowls, small juice glasses (clear), or tall

shot glasses 6 disposable pastry bags

Notes: If possible, use gel food coloring instead of the traditional food coloring found in grocery stores. Gel food coloring produces vibrant color results with just a small amount of dye.

If you prefer more yolks in your pudding, try this simple substitution: 3 whole eggs in place of the egg-and-egg- white combination in this recipe. Additionally, decrease the amount of cornstarch to 1⁄4 cup plus 11⁄2 tsp.

Directions

CLASSIC VANILLA PUDDING Step 1: Add the sugar, cornstarch, and salt to a medium saucepan (preferably stainless steel). Whisk the ingredients to combine, then add 1⁄2 cup of the 2% milk to the sugar mixture. Using a wooden spoon, stir until combined and thick.

craftzine.com

Step 2: Whisk in the remaining milk (2% and whole), cooking over low heat. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon for about 15 minutes. Do not let the mixture boil.

Step 3: In a medium bowl, whisk the two eggs until gently beaten. Slowly add about 1 cup of the hot milk mixture to the eggs, whisking as you pour. Then pour the milk/egg mixture into the saucepan with the remaining hot milk mixture.

Step 4: Cook over low heat for an additional 5 minutes — do not boil. Remove from heat; stir in the butter and vanilla (or vanilla bean).

RAINBOW PUDDING Step 1: Add the pudding to a medium bowl and cover with plastic wrap, pressing the plastic against the surface of the pudding until airtight. This will prevent a skin from forming. Refrigerate until well chilled, about 1 hour.

Step 2: Divide the cooled pudding evenly into 6 medium mixing bowls. Add food coloring to each bowl, corresponding with each color of the rainbow. Stir; add more food coloring (if desired) until desired color is reached.

Step 3: Divide the colored pudding into 6 pastry bags. Alternatively, you can just spoon the colors into bowls, but that can be a bit messier. Snip the end of the red pastry bag off so that there is about a 1⁄2″ diameter hole. Pipe the red pudding into each bowl. Repeat with remaining colors.

Playrooms!!

17 Mar

I always seem to gravitate towards wanting things for my future children that I always dreamed of having as a kid! One of those things is a playroom..not just a ‘throw everything that belongs to the kid in a spare room’ kind of space but a really cool and innovative room that is pleasing to mom and dad’s eyes and functional to transition from a play to work space as they grow!

Which ones do you like?

Ah what a great way to modernize a fun and active room for your little man!
