Plan-Your-Plate-Game

Plan Your Plate Game

Have you seen these cute sectioned plates for kids? I am in LOVE with them. I got them from Super Healthy Kids a little while ago and when we opened them my girls began to place food in the correct section.  I should mention we had just gotten home from vacation so we were lacking on fresh fruit so my daughter improvised with what she could find.

Healthy-snack

I got a kick out of it at least.

I discovered that they loved playing with these plates and discovering where foods fit on the plate.  So I got some fun printables together and made this game to keep them busy while I cook dinner. They do end up pulling it out a lot more often though.

Start by downloading the printables.

If you don’t have the cute section plates from Super Healthy Kids, I’ve got a printable version for you below.

Healthy Plate Download

Then you’ll need some fruit and dairy prints below.

Veggies and Grains

and finally Meat and Nuts

Once you’ve got them downloaded start cutting away! I even recruited my girls to help cut.

Cutting-Plan-Your-Plate

Now you’re ready to play.

Pile all the food in the center of the players. They can start building the plate that they want.

My girls were building so fast that it was hard to get pictures without movement.

food-guide-plates

They will plan their plate and then place all items back in the center and race to do it again.

I love that they get to learn as they are playing. And I can be close by but don’t have to supervise too closely! Win-Win!

Patriotic HedBanz

We love playing HedBanz!

It’s such a fun game that the whole family can get into.

I’ve created an American version to help you pass the time waiting for fireworks. The kids will have a great time playing Patriotic HedBanz, and can learn a few things about our country’s history and some of our symbols. Heck, the adults might even learn a thing or two.

Hi there ya’ll! I’m Ali from Dream Crafter and I am so excited to be sharing this fun summer activity with you today and I’m extra excited to be a part of this Summer Series. What a genius idea! I am all about easy activities that keep my kids busy during the summer months!

Today I am sharing a printable Under the Sea Sounds Bingo card with you.

under the sea sounds bingo

My kids had so much fun with this because its a little different twist on the original Bingo. You need your ears to play!

A lot of people think that the ocean is a quiet place where the only sound is the waves crashing on the sand. But many of the oceans creatures make noises! I was actually surprised at how many of these creatures make noises (and which ones don’t make any noises at all!…Like, did you know that the shark and the octopus literally do not make ONE sound!) Crazy right?!

So here’s how ya play:

Start by printing any of the 4 Bingo cards below. Just click, download and print.

Bingo Card 1 / Bingo Card 2 / Bingo Card 3 / Bingo Card 4

Next, you are going to need to get out your laptop or mobile device and open up tabs for each of the following sounds so they are ready to go when you’re playing the game. Just click the Names below to get the sounds!

Seagull / Fish splashing in the water / Emperor Penguin / Beluga Whale / Oystercatcher (this is a bird) / California Seal / Dolphin whistles / Toadfish / Damselfish / Bottle-nose Dolphin / Killer Whale / Harbor Seal / Blue-footed Booby / White Whale (Same as the Beluga whale. Trick your kids!) / Waves / Dolphin clicks / Elephant Seal / Walrus / Sea Lion  / Wind / Lobster / Brown Pelican / Clam (the only sound a clam makes is the bubbles it emits when it closes!) / Snapping Shrimp

listening bingo

Some of these links even have videos that might be fun to watch with your kids!

Randomly choose a sound and see who wins the Bingo game! Five in a row wins!

swedish fish bingo

Even though my kids are too young to read, the game went just fine. I asked them to tell me what animal they thought it was. Then I would tell them the animal and we would talk about it for a minute and I would show them which square to cover on their paper. If your child is deaf or hard of hearing, there are still LOTS of videos to watch about each animal and can still be easily played.

And of course we had to use Swedish Fish as our Bingo markers. What else? And the best part of the game? Eating the candy!

Enjoy your summer and keep those brains going! As Miss Frizzle always says, “Take chances, make mistakes and get messy!” Wow…I watch way too much Magic School Bus. :)

Mother's Day Printable

Mother’s Day is right around the corner! As a mom I adore the sweet little gifts I receive from my kiddos. I have had many breakfasts in bed that I would have to say were very interesting… but endearing.

DSC_0050 copy

These past few weeks, I have been brainstorming with my good friend Holly, and we came up with this fun Mother’s Day Printable. It not only gives “Mom” an option of what food she likes and where she would like to eat her breakfast. But, also a 2nd Mother’s Day printable that is all about “Mom” and the kinds of things she likes and enjoys. Such a great way for kids and or hubby to get to know you better! These printables could be used for a very fun Mother’s Day morning full of memories and love.

I love a good holiday printable…who doesn’t? It’s such an easy way to add holiday decor into your home. This super easy DIY photo mat and Easter printable was perfect for my entryway. Here’s what I did…

First, I needed a frame. I found a simple black one at the dollar store and spray painted it gold.

To make the mat I used a piece of regular cardboard. You’ll want to make sure that whatever you use won’t be too thick to fit back into your frame when it’s all done. You might need to use something that’s not quite so thick, like a gift box, cereal box, or even a piece of cardstock. I used a plain photo mat that I already had as a stencil.  I traced it onto the cardboard and cut it out using a razor knife.

DSC_0571.NEF

I used scrapbook paper to cover mine. Wrapping paper would work great, too!

I would have used Mod Podge to glue my paper to the cardboard, but I’m fresh out. I know, I was just as surprised as you. I used rubber cement instead. It’s paper, so really, any glue will do.

After I glued my cardboard to the back side of my scrapbook paper, I cut the corners off. I also cut an X in the middle of the mat like so…

DSC_1013

Then, I folded and glued each side, trimming the paper as needed as not to have any hanging over.

And, that’s it.

I put it in my shiny new frame with my Easter printable and…

I love it! It’s perfect next to my “chocolate” bunny!

Life is Beautiful!

Oh I love this time of year and love decorating my house with inspiring messages.  This one is perfect for springtime don’t ya think?  I love the soft hues of the flowers peeking through in the background and that beautiful script font.

Life-is-beautiful-square

I was needing something for this little spot in my basement.  It’s on top of a bookshelf that my girls access all the time.  I want them to remember how beautiful life is and to look for the beauty in life.

This would also make a fun gift for a friend.
