This whole last week has been volcano week in our house! That is what our science has been about and my kids are loving it We went to the library for books and DVDs about volcanoes, built and set off volcano models, played with food volcanoes, and tons of facts about volcanoes have been learned. I must say, volcano week has been a huge hit at the Spaulding house! I even did 16 more models with my art class today.
Today the kids and I used some small black lights we found in the Target dollar bins a few months ago to do some glow activities. We had so much fun I just had to share with my mommy friends!
This year I put together a doctor kit for my daughter who is in love with the idea of becoming a doctor. One of the things I just knew she would love is a pretend X-ray. So after some brainstorming I came up with a way to make her one
I hope all of my readers have had a very Merry Christmas! I know for our family it is one of the busiest times of the year, and when we aren’t busy we are focused on family time as much as possible! So I have had no spare time to blog, but I will be back at it now with the new year
I have been busy making Christmas gifts for my friends and family because I love to give homemade gifts. I love to receive them also. Just knowing someone loves me enough to put some effort into a gift is really special. Today I am sharing one of my favorite gifts I am making: detox bath in a jar.

This year we were able to do gingerbread nativity scenes I have an awesome friend who gave me a gingerbread nativity kit last year for Christmas. I have been waiting all year to use it with my small group girls for our annual party and it was so much fun.
Today is my birthday so I wanted to share a fun craft my girls and I are doing together. I have been getting ready for Christmas here lately. Making gifts, getting out decorations and crafting of course! I made some easy but cute little gift tags for this year that I’m sharing today.
I have eczema, my three kids sadly inherited my eczema also. So itchy dry skin is a constant issue in our home, especially in the winter. I am always looking for products that will help ease the symptoms of our eczema. Especially soaps, I usually only buy body wash or soap that is for sensitive skin or extra moisturizing. This can be expensive! I am a (non-extreme) couponer, so sometimes it is cheaper to buy the moisturizing/sensitive bar instead of body wash.
