A little peanut butter slathered on some apple slices with a few marshmallows makes mouths happy. :)

My kids love doing this. You will need:

*a cookie sheet with sides (to catch the excess liquid and foam from the volcanoes)
*food coloring (if you want to color the volcanoes)
*baking soda
*vinegar
*canning jars or glasses
*teaspoon

Place glasses or canning jars on cookie sheet. Add about 1/3 cup of vinegar to each glass. Add a drop of food coloring to each glass. Then let your child spoon in the baking soda. You can add more vinegar and baking soda after each volcano settles down to make it active again.

My sister S and I had so much fun talking and making these fun garlands late into the night last Saturday. Sisters are so much fun! We got the idea here. (Click on any of the images to view larger.)

It’s Just Another Mustache Monday…

(Title of this post is to be sung to the tune of The Bangles’ Manic Monday.)  So we tried black face paint this time instead of eyeliner when we sneakily painted mustaches on our kids in the middle of the night.   They woke up with their mustaches a bit smudged!  SO funny.  I found these wax mustaches to put in their lunches today.  I hope the ones at school enjoy finding them in their lunches as much as the ones who were at home did!   You can view the pictures from our last “Mustache Monday” here.

For an after-school snack the other day, I decided to make little rainbows out of fruit with small bowls of cream cheese and marshmallow creme for dipping. They were eaten right up!
