I got tired of my little one asking me every 5 minutes what we were going to do next so I made a visual schedule for her. It just includes what we do in the morning and a couple things in the afternoon. I didn't want to schedule every minute of every day. The pictures are taped so they can be moved around and adjusted. There are a few extra options so B. has some say in what we are going to do that day. For instance she can choose to do a math project or a science project. She has to choose something different each time so we don't end up doing art every day.

I was looking for a way to spice up our neighborhood walks for the little one who tends to become bored and want to be carried. I saw one of these on Pinterest and made my own version.
I added a few things to help us talk about safety in the neighborhood like what to do at a cross walk and what to do if you see a dog you don't know.
We laminated ours and bring along a dry erase crayon to mark off the ones we see.

Daddy wants to see how long his hair can get. This is a great way for kids to feel like they are cutting hair with out actually cutting their own. Make sure you hide the scissors after. : ) We used children's scissors and they cut the grass just fine.
