I’ve been looking for ideas to entertain my toddler on the plane and knowing she is really interested in writing and spelling. I think this will be perfect…
Things you need:
Cookie sheet, painters tape, Chalkboard spray paint for the cookie sheet, Magnetic letters and spray paint for the letters.
1.Tape around the area of the cookie sheet you want to paint . Once that is ready, spray paint with Chalkboard paint.
You might need to spray paint a couple of times and let it dry.
2. Place the letter facing up and spray paint with your favorite color. After they dry, rotate them and spray them again.
You might need to repeat this a couple of times till the letters are covered with paint.
Now let the Spelling Bee begin.

Today I wanted to blog about my friend Lyndsey, owner of “Jack & Lola Photography.” I’m always so impressed by how she can freeze moments in time with her camera. When I was going to Ad School, photography wasn’t my forte, too technical for me… But seeing how beautiful her pictures are… inspire me to try.
Here are some pictures she’s taken of our family.

We go at least once a week to our favorite shop “Blue Windows” in Belmont Shore. Not only do they have the cutest things but the whole store design is inspiring to me and the staff is super friendly. On one of our many walks we saw on their chalk board “story time” and we were in! Once we got there they didn’t disappoint, It was such a cute book, they also had quilts to sit on, snacks with labels, crafts & favors. The favors were Rocks with the characters of the story so the kids could recreate the story while playing! Super cute!
Thank you Blue Windows!

I’m always looking for projects to do with my kids.These Tin-Can Stilts are easy to make with materials you already have at home. Hope you enjoy them as much as my daughter does, the only draw back is they might be a little noisy if they are playing inside the house. Otherwise they are super fun!
To make make one pair of stilts you need:
2 tin cans
rope, twine or string
paint ( I used paint my daughter already had)
medium or large nail
1. Remove label from cans. Wash with warm water and dry.
2. Decorate the cans with paint and let it dry.
3. Turn cans over (bottoms side up)
4. Using the hammer and nail, punch two holes in the can.
5. Use twine or string and push it through the holes in your can. Pull string through the inside
of the can and push it out through the other hole. Make sure you make a knot in each end of string.
Now stand on the stilt and pull the string tightly as you walk.
