It's on like Donkey Kong...

So. My little chimp decided his birthday theme this year should be Donkey Kong. Who am I to deny my little dude giddy birthday happiness? Donkey Kong it is. He fell hard for the character plates from the Birthday Express catalog-so those are my starting point for this Ape-ril Rave...My kids always sweat the characters. This year, I am challenging myself to use licensed items to create a Donkey Kong vibe without me actually recreating Donkey Kong on my partyware designs or using a printable…

Monkey Craft

We have spent the last week enjoying the book Caps for Sale by Esphyr Slobodkina. It only seemed fitting that we do some kind of craft to go along with the book, so C and R made monkeys. First, they painted paper plates brown. Then, I drew a crazy looking face shape on yellow construction paper and cut it out. C and R added googly eyes, and drew a nose and mouth on each face. They glued the face onto the plate once the paint dried, and they glued on construction paper circles for ears. They…

Wichuda Laoaroon

เวลาทานขนมหรือคุ้กกี้ เราก็มักจะเก็บกล่องเอาไว้ใช่ไหมค่ะ.. ถ้าใช่แล้วล่ะก็ เรามาลองทำให้กล่องที่เราเก็บไว้เหล่านั้นเป็นกล่องของเราเอง ที่ไม่ใช่แค่กล่องคุ้กกี้ หรือกล่องลูกอม กันดูไม๊ ? อุปกรณ์ที่ต้องเตรียมก็มี กล่อง กับสเปรย์ ในรูปเราใช้เป็นสีด้านน่ะค่ะ วิธีทำก็ง่ายแสนง่ายค่ะ เพียงเราพ่นสเปรย์ลงบนกล่อง อาจจะต้องพ่นกันหลายชั้น หน่อยน่ะค่ะ เพื่อให้ได้สีที่นวลเนียน เสร็จแล้วเราก็ตากไว้ให้แห้งค่ะ หลังจากนั้นเราก็ตกแต่งกล่องได้ตามใจชอบเลยค่ะ :)

What the Teacher Wants!: Parent Teacher Conferences

Parent Teacher Conferences

How many of you have conferences coming up? I DO! I have them next week. I actually LOVE having conferences. I can talk anyones ear off! I just don't love doing grades and grading papers. If I could just conference with each parent/child and that's it, I would be happy as a clam. Ok, well I have had some bad experiences. I had a parent cry once and I had no idea what to do. I just told her that her son was slightly below grade level in reading and she has a come-apart. I seriously was…
