Muffin Tin Monday...Numbers/Counting has been a while!!! I haven't done very well with Muffin Tin Monday, but I hope to be back in the swing of things again. I honestly had NO intention of doing Muffin Tin Monday today, but when I saw the theme...I knew that Preston would love it. He loves to count everything!!! I am in desperate need of going grocery shopping this week, but I think that I did ok.

{1 cup of applesauce, 2 pieces of a peanut butter & honey sandwich, 3 starbursts, 4 tomatoes, 5 cheese circles, 6 frozen blueberries} The tomatoes are from my Grandparents garden. Preston will ONLY eat tomatoes from their garden. He cracks me up!

Check out other Muffin Tin Meals over at Muffin Tin Mom. {You can also see the themes on her side bar.}

Bean Name Activity

I have a bit of Mommy Guilt on this one. When Kaden {our oldest} was starting his first, but final year of preschool...he knew all of his letters, the sounds that they made, & how to write his name. Now Preston {our youngest} will be starting his final year of preschool & doesn't really care to learn any of that. He is a little stinker when it comes to what he knows. I will play games & ask him questions, but he will tell me the wrong answer just so that I will leave him alone. Kaden used to love tell us everything that he knew.

I am feeling Mommy Guilt that Preston doesn't know how to write his name {I think!} So, over the next 2 weeks I am going to try to work with him a little more & try to get him to get excited about learning these things.

My niece just started Kindergarten & I saw this cute little project hanging up. I knew that Preston would get a kick out of it. Kaden liked it too! This was a great hands on activity that they didn't need my help. Preston LOVES using the glue all by himself.

All you need it glue, paper, a marker, & beans.

Kaden wrote his own name on his paper with the marker & I wrote Preston's. Then, they traced each letter with glue as we went along. After they traced the letters with glue...they stuck the beans on. Preston was in a great mood & we talked about the letters in his name.

National Smores Day

Today is National Smores Day. Here are some fun variations of the traditional Smores. The following cookies are fun & quick because the chocolate is already there.


Keebler Fudge Stripe Cookies

or my personal favorite....Keebler Half Dipped Grahams.

If you don't have a fire can make smores in the microwave. Take one of your grahams {or cookies}...add chocolate if needed. Place the marshmallow on top & cook for about 15 seconds. Watch the marshmallow & pull it out when it starts getting big & puffy. Add the top graham {or cookie} & you are good to go!!!
