It has been AGES since I did a freebie on here, since I have been devoting my time to writing more informational posts. However, I recently had the chance to review the games Tell Tale and Tell Tale Fairy Tales (look our MONDAY for the post all about this cool game) and I found myself wishing I had a VERY simple visual  organization system to help my clients/children tell stories in a more organized fashion. So I whipped up this {Read More}

Before I had kids, I always planned that when I did have them, I would limit their TV time. I never said I wasn’t going to let them have any, I just wanted to be sure they didn’t get a ton. I am not one that thinks TV is the devil…well not exactly anyway. I am one that believes strongly in moderation. For the most part, I want my kids to be playing, drawing, painting, creating, or reading and not {Read More}

It has been a busy week here! I was able to squeeze in a little Valentine’s Freebie though! I made this Conversation Heart Math Game.

So this past week, I saw two similar activities that I really LOVED. The first one, is from Roots of Simplicity. She created a great gross motor reading activity by writing words on snowflakes and taping them to the ground (check out her post for details). Then, Emma at Mummy Mummy Mum linked up a very similar activity using dinosaur foot prints that I just had to feature this week at Thrifty Thursday. Why do I love these activities? For one, {Read More}
