Mess For Less: Fun with Pipe Cleaners - Here is a quick idea for fine motor skills that uses something most everyone has - a colander! You will also need some pipe cleaners. This fine motor skills activity takes no time to set up and is great for when you need to keep your child busy for a little bit so you can make dinner. Little C was not happy that she had to wait her turn. To be fair, at 18 months, C had a tough time with this activity, but she did love playing with the pipe cleaners. by bridgette.jons

These Feed Wanda Watermelon Sensory Bin Activities are a GREAT addition to any Watermelon, or Picnic themed unit that you are working on in your classroom. There are so many ways to use this Feed Wanda Set. I have left it very open ended so that you can target the skills you need to target in a small group setting. I have also included instruction cards for each set so that you can set the activity up as an independent center, and/or sensory bin activity. There are two sets included: one foc by jaclyn

This is a prewriting sheet that I laminated for fine motor skills practice. My kids love to trace the lines and shapes and practice writing their names at the top. We use baby wipes to erase so they can use it as many times as they want! Click the picture to find out more info. by annmarie

THIS IS WORTH KEEPING AND READING FREQUENTLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Written by a 90 Year Old..... This is something we should all read at least once a week!!!!! Make sure you read to the end!!!!!! Written by Regina Brett, 90 years old, of the Plain Dealer, Cleveland , Ohio . "To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught me. It is the most requested column I've ever written. My odometer rolled over to 90 in August, so here is the column once more: 1. Life isn't fair, but it's still good.. 2. When in doubt, just take the next small step. 3. Life is too short to waste time hating anyone. 4. Your job won't take care of you when you are sick. Your friends and parents will. Stay in touch. 5. Pay off your credit cards every month. 6. You don't have to win every argument. Agree to disagree. 7. Cry with someone. It's more healing than crying alone. 8. It's OK to get angry with God. He can take it. 9. Save for retirement starting with your first paycheck. 10. When it comes to chocolate, resistance is futile. 11. Make peace with your past so it won't screw up the present. 12. It's OK to let your children see you cry. 13. Don't compare your life to others. You have no idea what their journey is all about. 14. If a relationship has to be a secret, you shouldn't be in it. 15. Everything can change in the blink of an eye. But don't worry; God never blinks. 16. Take a deep breath It calms the mind. 17. Get rid of anything that isn't useful, beautiful or joyful. 18. Whatever doesn't kill you really does make you stronger. 19. It's never too late to have a happy childhood. But the second one is up to you and no one else. 20. When it comes to going after what you love in life, don't take no for an answer. 21. Burn the candles, use the nice sheets, wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a special occasion. Today is special. 22. Over prepare, then go with the flow. 23. Be eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to wear purple. 24. The most important sex organ is the brain. 25. No one is in charge of your happiness but you. 26. Frame every so-called disaster with these words :'In five years, will this matter?' 27. Always choose life.. 28. Forgive everyone everything. 29. What other people think of you is none of your business. 30. Time heals almost everything. Give time time. 31. However good or bad a situation is, it will change. 32. Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does. 33. Believe in miracles. 34. God loves you because of who God is, not because of anything you did or didn't do. 35. Don't audit life.. Show up and make the most of it now. 36. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young. 37. Your children get only one childhood. 38. All that truly matters in the end is that you loved. 39. Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting everywhere. 40. If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back. 41. Envy is a waste of time. You already have all you need. 42. The best is yet to come... 43. No matter how you feel, get up, dress up and show up. 44. Yield. 45. Life isn't tied with a bow, but it's still a gift." by eluthrea

Button Boards We have a new activity! It's a quiet activity that we keep with our books for quiet time. I pinned a Button Board idea and thought I'd make one for Butterfly to use. It's great for fine motor finger strengthening skills and to learn more of the buttoning skills for clothing practice, plus it reviews the basic shapes. by sabrina

I like this chicken noodle casserole. I only use 1 can soup (usually cream of chicken) and no spices. Salt & Pepper to taste at the table is perfect. However, having a good flavor to your chicken is important, so make sure you spice it up a bit when you're cooking it beforehand (I like a dash of S&P and some Lawry's, Old Bay, or other season-all spice; just watch out for the salt content). by lucinda
