  • Today’s arts/crafts project is making EARTH signs.
    Here is how you make them:
    First you start out with a piece of construction paper or cardstock (any color you want to use will do, i just happened to have blue paper on hand).
    Using glue write out the letters EARTH.

Then take whatever you have found around your yard (grass, flowers, dirt, sticks, etc.) and attach it to the glue.

And something like this should be your outcome…

Oh well, they all still ate it. I added in the banana slice to make it look like the sun.

  • I download that printable yesterday from Teachers Pay Teachers and it had these fun word wall cards that we used today to talk about different Earth Day vocabulary words and ways that they each help the Earth.

I make mine a little differently than the norm, because my kids don’t like raisins. For our “Ants on a log” we use; celery, natural peanut butter, and vegan chocolate chips. All my kiddos thoroughly enjoyed them, here’s Cruz giving them a thumbs up!

Spring Clean Series {Day 5 – Kitchen}

Hi Guys!

I’m back with my 5th and final day in my Spring Clean Series.

spring clean series

I know i already talked about my pantry on Day 1, however i felt like the kitchen itself needed a blog post because it is a troublesome area in my house.

IMG_3849

This blog post is going to be different because there are no before and after pictures. I am going to share with you, how i keep my kitchen clean and organized though.

Here are a few of my tips to keep your kitchen tidy:

  • Try not to leave too much stuff out on the counters – Not only does it make the kitchen look cluttered, it takes up precious counter space. I only leave out those things that i use pretty much every day (can opener, coffee pot, Knife set, etc.).
  • Do dishes after every meal – This helps to not have so many dishes piled up and overflow.
  • At least once a month go through and organize cupboards – This is a good time to throw out that plastic storage container that you can’t find the lid for.

That’s it! I hope you have enjoyed my Spring Clean Series.

Spring Clean Series {Day 4 – Office}

Hi Guys!

Today is Day 4 of my Spring Clean Series.

spring clean series

I’m going to tackle my home office today, and boy is it a disaster.

IMG_3923

Truth be told i don’t think i have really cleaned my office for at least over a month, yikes! There are blankets on the couch from when my kids used them to make a tent. There are papers laying all over the place. And of course half filled boxes for our upcoming move.

IMG_3927

I’m so glad i cleaned this room today! It feels so much better to sit at my desk and type up this blog post in a clean space.

Are you doing any spring cleaning? What room is your most trouble spot?

Tomorrow, i will share my 5th and final day of my spring clean series. Be sure to come back tomorrow to see that!

Spring Clean Series {Day 3 – Laundry Room}

Hi Guys!

I’m back with day 3 of my Spring Clean Series!

spring clean series

Today i’m sharing my laundry room with you all.

IMG_3909

Because our laundry room leads out to the garage, this area gets a lot of traffic. With kids coming in and out of the garage, to go outside and play. This area becomes a dump all; shoes, toys, jackets, etc. can be found laying around here at any given time.

IMG_3913

I can’t blame it all on the kids though, i’m guilty myself of dumping out receipts (and anything else) from my purse here.

IMG_3910

Here is how i usually organize my laundry room:

  • Keep extra: cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, and diapers up on the high shelf.
  • On the lower shelf i keep: diapers, wipes, hand sanitizer (when kids come in from playing with friends they immediately sanitize their hands), laundry detergent, dryer sheets, etc.

IMG_3917

It feels good to have a clean and organized laundry room, even though it will probably only stay clean & organized for like 5 minutes.

Thanks for reading today’s blog post! Stop by again tomorrow for day 4 of my Spring Clean Series!
