Football Math Activity

Time for some football…and math 🙂 I’ll be honest with you, I am definitely not watching the game today. I’m just not that into it. At all. I’d much rather be crafting or home preschool planning or teaching. To satisfy my dorky desires I decided to go on an activity spree (two hours before kick…

Kid-Made Thank You Cards

Mason Jar Craft Kits

It’s time to get crafty!! Do you love homemade gifts? I do. Money spent can be replaced, but time given is irreplaceable.
