Week 2′s activities!
Wacky Wednesday: Color on Cardboard. Color silly things on a giant piece of cardboard.
Thoughtful Thursday: Cupcake Liner Flower.
Famous Friday: Play Doh. This is a much loved activity around here. We’re going to use playdoh to shape letters and numbers.
What’s on next week’s schedule for you?
Week 1 update!
Make Something Monday: DIY Melted Accessories. The website says that these have a strong odor when melting so a nice warm day to do them on the grill or with the windows open is important!
**We did not get to this activity this week. Monday was crazy as it was, without melting beads… We’ll hold on to it for a upcoming week!
Testing Tuesday: Create Your Own Rainstorm. Observations, questioning, discovery.
Wacky Wednesday: Q-Tip Writing. In your best print, write letters onto construction paper or cardstock. (if your little one is just learning letters, begin with the letters in their name). Kiddos can trace the letter with a q-tip dipped in paint.
Thoughtful Thursday: Create a card to send to Chloe’s Preschool teacher to say thank you for the year.
**Our papa has been feeling down lately with a nasty cellulitis infection, so Chloe opted to make him a get well card this week, completely with a “Get Well Soon” balloon.
Famous Friday: Bug Hunt. I got this from Target at the after Easter Sale. The Easter Egg hunt is something that is talked about all year long around here… I knew this would be a super fun summer activity! Hide them throughout the yard and go “catch” them.

I love having soft, silky legs. I hate shaving daily to get them. I figured this pin was worth a shot because if nothing else, it would replace my sugar scrub for the week.
1 1/4 C Sugar (Yup, plain, good-ol’ white sugar
1/2 C Oil (I used olive oil, but you can use any oil, coconut oil, baby oil, canola oil
3 tablespoons Citrus (Lime or lemon)
1. Mix everything together in a bowl.
2. Soak your legs in the tub for 5 minutes.
3. Shave your legs.
4. Rub some of this mixture all over your legs. The sugar will help rub off all dirt and dead skin. Rub, rub. Feels like a mini massage.
5. Rinse it all off, shave again. I would use one razor per leg if you have two. You will be rinsing this razor a lot. I was GROSSED out by the amount of dead skin I was “shaving” off. It was insane! Trust me, you’ll see.
6. Rub your legs again! Second coat of wax, oh yeah.
7. Rinse off! You can use a mild soap to help get some of the oil off.
8. Lotion your legs up, and feel the silkiness!
What I did:
I followed the recipe exactly (sugar, baby oil, lemon juice, 2 razors).
Instead of doing this in the bathtub (only because I don’t like sitting in a tub of sugary-oily-hairy water), I stood in a HOT shower for 5-7 minutes because massaging the mixture onto my legs. I was very generous per leg for both dosing and still had over half of the mixture left at the end… unless you like to save your scrubs in a jar, cut the recipe in 1/2 or more!
It’s true about the second razor needing to be rinsed a lot, and the amount of dead skin is pretty gross… but it wasn’t really any different than if you did this with ANY exfoliating scrub. It did leave my legs silky and smooth, but it wasn’t a whole lot different that any other time I shave than scrub.
The last day of 3 year old preschool has already arrived. Which is strange, because THIS was just the other day.
She has grown so much over the school year, physically and developmentally. (You wouldn’t know this if you’ve been around her the last few weeks, however… someone is beginning to suffer from delayed jealously which results is my 4 year old acting and behaving like a 1 year old. SO OVER IT)
To keep the memories of her first year of school, and not be overrun by all the papers that have been brought home over the last 9 months, I am compiling pictures of the different preschool activites, parties, and student work into a book. I’m so excited to have this “yearbook” to look back at with her over the summer.
