Guidecraft Giveaway at Sugar Pop Ribbons

17 11 2010

I love Guidecraft products since they are timelessly styled and grow with kids as they help kids grow! The Playhouse Hideaway Bookshelves are no exception. I’d love to win this fun structure for both my children to hang out in. They would love to have a dedicated place to read their books and put on their “shows.”

Enter at Sugar Pop Ribbons’ blog here before the contest ends on Dec 13th, 2010

Bean monkeying around

These are the cutest little paper dolls, only they aren’t dolls, but sweet little foxes! (you’ll have to see for yourself!)

Same and Different Activity

3 11 2010

Here’s a quick & easy learning activity…

I folded a paper in half then asked Bean to draw a pumpkin on one side. When she was finished, I flipped the paper, and asked her to draw a second one without looking at the first. Then we opened the paper to reveal the two pumpkins and made a list together of their similarities and differences. (The stem on the right-side pumpkin makes me smile!)

Well, Bean decided later to make another comparison on her own. She drew a friendly ghost on one side and a Christmas tree on the other. She got to work listing what was the same and what was different too! It seems the only similarity she noted was they both have presents. Hmm, wonder what she’s thinking about?
