Green Kid Crafts

Here's a Get It Done Tip for kid crafts.  We received our first shipment from Green Kid Crafts and loved it!

Each month you get:
  • 3-4 award winning Creativity and STEM Science Kits (science, technology, engineering, and math) designed by experts to build confidence, flex creativity, and make kids smarter.
  • All materials and instructions, along with some fun extras!
  • An exciting new theme, think Outer Space, Kitchen Science, Nocturnal Animals, Backyard Science, Ocean, and Mad Scientist.

  • In our kit this month we made homemade bird feeders, endangered bird puppets and window clings.
    They even put in organic peeled apple clusters which we never had before as a snack.  My kids loved it so I ordered more from amazon. :)

    Quiet Sunday

    Quiet day on tap for today.  Went to Whole Foods and nail salon.  Now hanging out in backyard.  We'll likely go out for dinner later and that's it.   Early to bed tonight since tomorrow starts the second half of camp where my middle one joins the big boy.

    Rock of Ages

    Went to see Rock of Ages again with two high school friends today.  We usually meet up once a quarter to go out for dinner and it was my turn to choose the restaurant....so I asked if we could switch things up and see a matinee of the play instead.  SO FUN!

    Also, recap of last night at Blue Hill at Stone Barns. 


    BEST MEAL OF MY LIFE.

    We started at 6:30 and ate and drank until close to 10:30.  Our table was even selected to sit outside for 2 courses (bottom right pic). We also were allowed in the kitchen and saw Dan Barber in action.  What an incredible night.

    Restaurant Waiting Games

    Thankfully my kids are pretty good when we go out to eat.  We know what works for them - order quick, two courses only and get them in before they are starving. 

    That said, every once in awhile help is needed to keep them in line while waiting for the food.  I stumbled across these Get It Done Tips for 10 Restaurant Waiting Games to Play With Kids.  Clever!

    Wrinkle Releaser

    I haven't ironed in years.  Most of my clothes are dry clean, but those that aren't I have always used wrinkle release sprays - they work perfect on those hectic mornings. 

    I am pleased to share this Get It Done Tip for a new spray I found that is all natural called Magic Mist.  Tried it today and seemed to work well!

    Organic Sprinkles!

    I refrain from using anything with coloring in it for obvious reasons, which is why I am thrilled to share this Get It Done Tip -- organic sprinkles can be found at Whole Foods!!


    Whoop Whoop!!!

    Birthday Party

    I slept in until 7:30 -- luxurious in my book!

    We all went to Whole Foods by 8:30.  My oldest had a 4 pm birthday party for his friend so I took him.  Meanwhile my husband had his grandma join him and the little two for dinner at our house.

    9:06 and all the little people are passed out for the night. 

    Hope everyone has a good week!
