My daughter gets allowance; she is 5. She gets allowance because she is a big contributor to the family. We settled on $3 for now. While trying to decide on the amount of allowance to give her, I noticed a few things. Mainly that money, (U.S.A. currency), is confusing. For adults, for teenagers and especially… Continue reading Money Managment for Little Kids: The Shop.
BACK TO SCHOOL POST ALERT!!! School is starting back faster then we know it!! Last year was our first year of all week schooling so we decided, due to time constraints and an indecisive, fashionista child, we would make clothing tags to help get the week set.

The other day we did Tallulah from the Tallulah ballet books by Marilyn Singer. One of our activities was to make a tutu. I spotted a… Continue reading Sustainable Project # 5: Not your Typical Tutu Pattern!
The words “sugar-free” are really starting to frustrate me. Sugar free to me means no sugar, at all, no real sugar, no fake sugar (i.e. splenda, etc.) just nature type natural sweeteners, i.e. unsweetened applesauce, fruit juice, especially honey. First off, this post is only pictures. The recipe is amazing and I found it at… Continue reading Homemade Honey Strawberry Jam. (NO SUGAR)
