Fruit Rainbow

4 Mar

I love making snacks that are healthy… Isn’t it funny that the cuter a snack the more likely your kids are to eat it. This one is so easy and really a lot of fun! We make a fruit rainbow each year for St. Patrick’s Day, but it would also be fun for a rainbow party or quite frankly for any gathering or family dinner you have planned :). No directions needed (that’s the best kind of craft)…




Rainbows, Rainbows, and more Rainbows!

23 Feb



We made these “Salt Paintings” this week and it surely was a hit with my team…  You can either use liquid water color paints (these are different than traditional watercolor paints and are available at most craft stores…)  We didn’t have liquid water color paints so I just added a little food coloring to some water and we used that…  You’ll also need school glue and thick paper/canvas along with table salt…

1.  Have your child draw a rainbow with glue…



2.  Sprinkle the glue rainbow with a pretty good amount of salt…  be ready for a bit of a mess 🙂

3.  Use your water paints to paint the rainbow… It’s fun to see the color spread…



Let your rainbow dry and you’ll end up with a fun & textured piece of art!



If salt isn’t your favorite medium maybe you’d prefer a little shaving cream instead :).  These bath paints are loads of fun!







Rainbow Bath Paints…  Mix unscented shaving cream with food coloring to make a fun bath time activity.  They also make “washable” liquid watercolor paints that would work, as well…


A fruit rainbow is always a fun way to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day or any day for that matter…  YUMMY!



Fruitloop Rainbow… Lots of glue, lots of fun!




Welcome Spring….

20 Mar

The S brothers believe that because today is the first day of spring the weather will be warm from this day forward!  They think that it will not snow again, that the flowers will bloom and that we can start planting our garden (at G’s).  I’ve tried to explain the equinox to them (HA HA) and that today is just a “day” but they are permanently optimistic and I think I just let them be!  We did a little “brainstorming” about what spring will bring… Flowers, sunshine, warmer weather, puddles, baseball, rain and rainbows…  We’ve been very into rainbows since St. Patrick’s Day so I thought we’d just keep the theme going…  I call it “A Rainbow of Fruit Flavors”  the heathy version….   WE ATE EVERY LAST PIECE OF FRUIT… YUMMY!
