Learning numbers and their quantity
Again I work with kids. I don’t have any of my own. I borrow other people kids (with permission of course) and try pinterest ideas or my own ideas on the unsuspecting kiddos. Today I want to show you my number cards.
I used note cards, wrote the number, and wrote that number of circles on it.
All you need:
-3×5 note cards
-little things to put in the circles
I used beads, coca-cola bottle caps, large rocks. The girl who worked on this really liked it. She liked using the bigger rocks mostly, but sometimes the beads were the only things that were small enough to fit into the NINE circles.
Geocaching is like a treasure hunt with a gps
This is seriously a fun date idea, group idea, family outing… Super fun. Well, I’ll admit when you don’t find it… not so much… but it is still a great way to get outside and do some treasure hunting!
looking… looking… finding!
– make sure you have some sort of GPS… iphones can get an app. A map can work, but sometimes its harder
– BRING A PEN… no matter what. Most of the geocaches I run into don’t have their own pen.
– Bring something to put in it. Leave your mark. Remember you can’t take anything, unless you put something in.
– Don’t go alone. Not because it is dangerous… but because it SO much fun to discover things together
We found this at a geocache site… creepy! Maybe it is dangerous alone!
There is probably one where you live. Its around the world! If not then start some! Want more information? Click HERE
Tux. My Tux.
He has mostly won his battle against a bite or puncture wound this last week. Yesterday was the check up and the vet even cleared him to go outside. PHEW! Because for awhile I wasn’t getting any sleep.
Yes he is in what looks like a baby sling and staying there.
He is the really best cat for me. I am so thankful to Grant who gave him to me, the hubby for letting me have him, and to God who knew we would be a great match.
Can you believe this is real?
My fun thing this last week was the trip that my husband and I made to a TINY… very tiny town close to us. It was a drive, but a little worth it just for the picture above!! How hilarious!
Yes this is how he wore his sunnies!
1) bring more water
2) bring some snacks (or make SURE SURE they have a place to eat)
3) make sure to get out at least once
See that river?
The river was beautiful and by far my second favorite part. It really nice because you get the chance to take long talks and explore 🙂
Yes, it is not a Monday, BUT every Monday I am doing my best to do something a little extra for myself. So far its been a little weak… like just clipping nails or doing some eyebrow damage control. However that need not be the only thing I do!
In the Target beauty section, the section that has health or natural by it… like where the Yes to Carrots and Berts Bee’s cargo is I found this mask that was suppose to heat up.
Found at Le Targe(t)
Next Monday tried it… and….
…. I like it. I don’t love it. It does heat up. My skin does feel better. It just doesn’t seem to offer the umph I was expecting. Maybe my expectations were too high?
THe really good thing is that there is so much that if you keep it in a ziplock baggie you can keep using it. So far I have got 3 perfectly fine masks out of it.
a big plus is that you don’t look like a monster while wearing it!
Sorry about the misleading picture at the top! I had to spice it up, but let me repeat that is NOT a real beauty mask… that is paint, paint that actually can make me break out….
So that picture is purely to pull you in… i confess
My job is to work with kids… really my job… is called Children’s Pastor. So because of this and just because I love kiddos I do all this crazy kid stuff even though I have none of my own. I test intriguing pinterest finds and my own thoughts out on nephews, neighbors, and unsuspecting kids everywhere! They have no idea they are my guinea pigs!
done in no time!
So first up is the color matching game. Easy peasy!
things of color (I used some random game pieces my MiLaw had from when she was a teacher)
1- paint the carton the colors of the pieces BUT you could use marker or even colored pencil. Our dear orange was a colored pencil I believe
2- let them play!!! … wait! 1 and a half should be let it dry…
My neighbor was slightly interested,
but this other little girlie I was tutoring over the summer, LOVED it so much I let her keep it.
It was so hot! But I loved it!
Since I have moved to a smaller town… much smaller… I’ve had a really hard time figuring out how to… I don’t know entertain myself? maybe? So I am going to challenge myself to try to do at least one really fun activity of some kind and post about it every week…. lets see how it goes!
I love hiking! And living in a valley doesn’t not afford many hiking trails, however living in a valley means there is high ground around somewhere!
It makes hiking extra awesome if you scout out the area you are going to so you can feel all educated and mountain man like
Where to go if you want to know
(hehehe) about the best hiking? Your local REI or if you are in South-ish Eastern WA or Northern Eastern OR … http://hiketricities.com/has some pretty fun ideas.
take only pictures… leave only footprints
